William Nicholas Gomes Against Islamophobia

"... I am not involved with any political parties. My stand is very clear for democracy, rule of law and justice." - William Gomes

(SALEM) - https://twitter.com/Wnicholasgomes/status/314852347383779328 Salem-News.com's human rights ambassador has shared a very powerful message against Islamophobia that is is growing worldwide.

This is particularly the case in Bangladesh, a nation in the midst of ongoing civil unrest.

Mr. Gomes said, "There are people who are calling me atheist, some saying I am a supporter of Jamaat-e-Islami... I am not involved with any political parties. My stand is very clear for democracy, rule of law and justice."

He continued, "I am against any form of intolerance alongside xenophobia and antisemitism. I am and will always stand strong in combating all forms of racial discrimination and intolerance any where."

The point William Gomes is making is at the core of our philosophy at Salem-News.com: religions and human rights groups have much in common, but they are functionally very different. While Ecumenical Ministries and other groups that are widely tolerant of all religions do exist, they are more rare than common.

This is a worldwide problem and Mr. Gomes' reports are about people, regardless of their nationality or race or religion.
