The Event will be held in the EU Parliament at Brussels on December 8, 2011 starting at 09:00 and concluding at 13:00.
Key speakers are Taslima Nasreen, Bangladeshi writer in exile, and winner of the European Parliament Sakharov Prize, and Anuradha Koirala, awarded CNN hero 2010 for her work against human trafficking in Nepal.
The event, in celebration of International Human Rights Day, brings together human rights defenders from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Bhutan to address European representatives, MEPs, policymakers and NGOs.
A platform such as this is a real opportunity to challenge for a sterner approach from Europe with regards to Pakistan's Abysmal record for human rights.
Please pray for understanding and wisdom to be poured abundantly over Wilson Chowdhry our delegate, pray for MEPs to have a tenderness of heart for global persecuted minorities and pray for a positive conclusion, that may shape a more harmonious future for all who live in South Asia.
