    AZZAM: "The recent happenings in Burma, philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, India, Ethiopia and a number of other countries have shocked the conscience of all those who believe in human rights.The situation in most East European counties is also far from encouraging. Unfortunately, Moslems are being persecuted politically, economically and socially, merely on the basis of religion.

    Background: In London, on Monday (24 July) delegates from more than 30 countries began a five-day conference on the problems facing Moslem minorities. The organisers said the meeting was the first worldwide appraisal of the problems facing Moslem communities in non-Moslem countries.

    SYNOPSIS: The conference was attended by nearly 70 delegates.They were expected to discuss the problem of Moslem cultural identity, and constitutional rights and freedoms in non-Moslem nations. The Secretary-General of the Islamic Council of Europe, Mr Salem Azzam, said that Moslem government should play a part in the protection of Moslem minorities, all over the world.

    We Moslems don't ask for privileges for Moslem minorities. We only ask for equal treatment and opportunities for them. They should not be discriminated against for being Moslem."
