A Special Democracy Conference for UK

UK has a special place in history – and in the hearts and minds of freedom-loving people everywhere – for its own relentless struggle for freedom and democracy for its people.

Whether it was the struggle of the Irish or the Scots for freedom, or whether it was the great effort that the Magna Carta embodied to limit the power of absolute kingship, the British march toward freedom and democracy has been inexorable.

Therefore, it is only fit and proper that at this particular juncture in history a new cry of support for freedom and democracy for Egypt – and for the rest of the world – should also rise from the soil of Britain.

It is, therefore, my respectful submission that this is what the people of UK – both Muslim and non-Muslim, Ikhwan and non-Ikhwan – must do: They must organize a conference on Saturday, May 19, or on Sunday, May 20, 2012, whichever date is most convenient for them, in support of the struggle of the Great Egyptian People for Freedom and Democracy in Egypt – and throughout the world.

UK Democracy Conference: Some Program Pointers

Here are some helpful hints and pointers on program planning for the proposed UK Democracy Conference:

  1. Depending entirely on the convenience and discretion of the organizers, the UK Democracy Conference can get Dr. Muhammad Mursi and Mr. Khairat Shatir, the Ikhwan leaders, to address the Conference over the phone or on Skype from Cairo – for 5 minutes or more each, knowing how busy they are.
  2. And, if they think it is appropriate, the conference organizers can get Shaikh Rachid Ghanouchi from Tunis to address the Conference over the phone or on Skype for 5-10 minutes.
  3. And if they think it is appropriate, they can get Ken Livingstone as well as the newly re-elected mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to attend and address the Conference for 5 minutes each.
  4. If they come, Alhamdulillah. If they say no, again Alhamdulillah. As they say: Kullun min ‘indillah – all is from Allah.

    I have a feeling both these gentlemen will come.

  5. Invite Cherie Blair, but not her husband Tony Blair, to attend and speak for 5 minutes.
  6. Invite George Galloway to come and speak for 5 minutes.
  7. Invite Baroness Warsi to come and speak for 5 minutes.
  8. Have Dr. Abdul Barr from Al-Azhar, Cairo, to make a Du’a over the phone or on Skype.
  9. Have Dr. Badie from Cairo say a few words over the phone or Skype.
  10. Start working on it now, get your best people to hit the phones and make it happen.

UK Democracy Conference: Some Additional Program Pointers

Send out invitations to the following people, with the idea that whoever accepts, accepts; and whoever does not, does not.

If they accept that is from Allah. And if they don’t, that is also from Allah. Because Allah is Fa’aalul limaa yureed. He does precisely what he wants.

So, here is the suggested list:

  1. Prime Minister Cameron.
  2. Deputy Prime Minister Clegg.
  3. Labour Leader Miliband.
  4. Archbishop of Canterbury.
  5. Invite the Press from UK.
  6. Invite the News Agencies.

There! Voila!

Mashallah, there, you have a full day’s worth of program, and a whole list of speakers and participants, for the proposed UK Democracy Conference of 2012 in support of Democracy in the Middle East and around the world.

Preparing to Meet the Press: Some Pointers

A free press runs the free world, of which we are all a part. Those who want to support democracy and freedom in the world must become experts at interacting positively and creatively with a free press.

Here are some helpful pointers on what they can do in this regard:

  1. Thoroughly coach and prepare one or more of your best people – and I mean the very best of the best – to address the Press and answer their questions.
  2. Select that spokesperson carefully and train that person thoroughly. If you can, let that expert be a woman. 
  3. Prepare a Press Kit or Media Package consisting of the best write-ups, photos and videos for distribution among the members of the press.
  4. Organize a Press Conference in which Dr. Mursi will address the press over the phone or on Skype for a few minutes and then take a few questions from the floor.
  5. Get one of your best people to preside over that Press Conference.

Let Us Change the World

May Allah bless and help the wonderful brothers and sisters, Ikhwan and non-Ikhwan, Muslim and non-Muslim, in UK, to accomplish this most noble goal of standing up for Democracy and Freedom in Egypt and the world over – through this proposed UK Democracy Conference for 19th or 20th of May, 2012.

This will change the world – Bi-Idhnillah.

Following Sayyidina Isa, Alaihis Salam, this proposed UK Democracy Conference will say to the world: Qum Bi-Idhnillah – Rise in the Name of God!

It will say: Rise from your death of slavery and bondage and be reborn in freedom and democracy.

And the world shall rise and it “Shall Have a New Birth of Freedom” and Democracy, inshallah. How beautifully Abraham Lincoln spoke those words in his Gettysburg Address.

A New Shower of Blessings from Above

For, make no mistake, a new shower of the Rahmat of Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim on his earth is about to begin.

And it shall be through a new rebirth of the message of Nabiyyur Rahmah, Rahmatulil ‘Aalameen, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, throughout this world.

And part of it shall be in the form of a new rise of hope and freedom and democracy in the whole world.

Let the UK Democracy Conference – and all the other conferences around the world – being proposed here for 19th or 20th May, 2012, to celebrate the WORLD DAY OF DEMOCRACY be the next big step in our time in that direction.
