Stop Gender Discrimination during Hajj Pilgrimage sign now

To: United Nations, its Security Council, World Government Leaders, in particular the government of Saudia Arabia, and Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch

To: UN and World Government Leaders

We, the undersigned, petition the United Nations, its Security Council and World Government Leaders to join Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch to STOP the discrimination, unjust treatment and occasional assault on Muslim women pilgrims at the annual Hajj (Pilgrimage) in Saudia Arabia. This behavior has escalated more than the past when women and men were treated equally during the Pilgrimage. Unfortunately, there seems to be a turn for the worse and changes have been implemented that are unfair and sexist. One example is that women are no longer allowed to visit the Prophet's (SAW) grave in close proximity. Many Muslim women returning from the pilgrimage exhibit bruises and signs of physical abuse. Their only crime committed was that they attempted to pray in sacred areas that are now only reserved for men.

We have signed this petition and sent it to people of all faiths, ethnic backgrounds and political beliefs with the hopes that the UN and World Leaders would pressure the Saudi government to reign in the sexist and abusive elements that control the Holy sites in Mecca and Medina. These are the elements that are carrying out such harsh, sexist and inhumane treatment against the women pilgrims.
