Nonviolence Publishes Statement on Day of Commemoration of the Victims of Genocide

Nonviolence Incorporation published a statement on December 9, 2019, marking the International Day of Commemoration and Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide; here come some parts of this statement:

Nonviolence Incorporation, Freemuslim association condemns all atrocities and acts of genocide around the globe and calls on the world leaders to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice.

The history of humankind is stained with multiple hateful crimes of genocide and mass killings, which for the most part target noncombatant civilians, including defenseless women, children and the elderly.

In many civil wars and armed conflicts, we have witnessed brutal mass killings which have been immediately condemned by the international community. Though it is soothing to see that some perpetrators of these crimes faced trials, but there also have been many cases where these criminals have escaped justice.

In the not too distant past, the world stood witness to numerous genocides in countries such as Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Egypt and in some other countries in the central Africa. As the world desperately was watching these brutal crimes, we come to know that the current international laws lack the authority to prevent such heinous crimes to take place.

Therefore, there is urgent need for the international community to revise their policies and adopt new approaches in order to fill out the legal and moral gaps that allow these criminal acts to happen.
