To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

Your petitioners humbly request the House to support all efforts by Muslims to have the apostasy laws reformed, so that Muslims who chose to leave their faith are no longer liable to any penalty but are free to follow their new convictions without fear, in accordance with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We also ask the House to use its influence on Governments of countries where punishments for apostasy are part of the legal system, to encourage abolition.

by Mrs Irwin (from 10 citizens)
