The executive director of the organization has taken part as a panelist in the session where he spoke of the oppression practiced against Shias throughout the history by tyrant regimes.
Panelists offered insight into why the Shia are persecuted in Sunni countries – including key allies of the United States in the Middle East and South Asia – and discussed how this oppression takes the form of both political subjugation and a denial of the Shia’s freedom to practice their religion.
Panelists also offered recommendations for how Congress can better pursue religious freedom policies for Shia communities.
