Embraces truth, justice, accountability, independence, and empathy with the oppressed and survivors, as its guiding values

06

Maintains that all individuals are entitled to due process and a fair trial

07

Want all laws and policies which contradict basic principles of justice to be repealed, particularly those that arose from the global War on Terror since 2001

08

Advocate that Muslim minorities must be free to live a dignified life according to their faith, free from state persecution, government interference , and attempts to distort their beliefs and identity.
