Thank you President Biden for shutting down the Muslim Ban. This is a perfect beginning. We pray for a new era of hope for all Americans, end of discrimination against all people and standing up for the human rights at home and abroad.
I am Dr Khursheed Mallick, the Chair of the board of Justice For All. You may know me from my work on Indian Muslim issues and as although our work goes back 25 years when I was treasurer of Bosnia Task Force. I am delighted at the growth of this dynamic organization – Justice For All – with offices in the US, Canada and the United Nations. Launching world-class projects such as the Save India From Fascism and now the Sri Lanka Task Force.
Justice For All has been a part of lawsuits against the Trump administration and for a couple of years have been communicating directly with presidential candidates and their policy staffers, including President Biden. We are pleased that many of our requests are being granted on the first day including restoring DREAMers, and joining the Paris Accord on Climate. We only wish there was a major step regarding criminal justice reform on the first day.
Yesterday, the US government recognized the Uyghur Genocide as a genocide. As chair of the board of Justice For All, I am extremely proud of our Save Uighur team for their commitment and hard work on this issue.
We have a promise from the New Secretary of State Antony Blinken of the Biden Administration that he will launch an interagency review to determine whether Burma’s persecution of the Rohingya amounts to genocide.
This will be a culmination of years of work. I remember when my friend, Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid, was kicked off an Amnesty panel for calling the oppression of the Rohingya, genocide.
The Biden administration should order an audit to discover and rescind within 30 days all the administrative processes and directives initiated by Stephen Miller, the Trump architect of Muslim Ban who has undermined the great American tradition of immigration.
Closing the Guantanamo Bay prison within the first 30 days would signal a new era in our foreign policy.
I urge you all to continue your support for the strategic and precise work that Justice For All and all its campaigns.
You have been an integral part of Justice For All through your calls, advocacy, dua and donations. Please continue your support.
Justice For All has a diverse board which includes two Indian Americans like myself, two African Americans, a West African-American, a Palestinian American, and a Burmese American. Justice For All team also is equally diverse, reflecting the Ummah with nine different ethnic heritage.
Genocide and Human rights violations continue to challenge the world. For that reason the Prophetic call of Justice For All is more critical than ever.
Please keep your duas and donations coming in this direction.
Dr. Khursheed Mallick

P.s. I hope President Biden accepts our request to appoint human rights activists to be a part of all trade negotiations.
