On March 15th, 2019 two Mosques in New Zealand were under attack, because of their religion. In total 49 people were killed and 20 wounded (Christchurch shootings, 2019). In this photo, there are three people sitting on a curb moments after the shooting. After being so close to death they're not going to feel safe. This violates their right to life, liberty and personal security.
Banning of Religious Symbols
Around October 12th, 2015 more than 80 percent of Canadians agreed that niqab-wearing Muslim women should remove their veil while taking the ceremonial oath of Canadian citizenship. Steven Harper was considering banning hijabs or niqab to give and obtain public services (niqab debate, 2015). The sign in the picture says "because Quebec needs all its workers even veiled." These women and men are protesting for their freedom of expression because it's being taken away.
School Bans Hijabs
Less than a week after the New Zealand shooting, the principal of Diocesan School for Girls has banned and said that hijabs violated the dress code(bans the Hijab, 2019). In this photo, the girls seem aggravated, which they should because their right to education is being violated. If Muslim girls cannot express their own religion and show what they believe in, they are most likely going to find a new school that allows them to express what they believe in.
On August 17th, 2013 a hate poster was put up in Houston-area mosque (‘No Muslim’ parking signs, 2013). In the picture, it shows the sign that was made. Just because they follow a different religion they cannot park in the Westview shopping center and if they do their car will be towed. this violates freedom from discrimination.
April 3rd, 2019 a famous boxer Conor McGregor insulted his opponent (Khabib Nurmagomedov) wife by saying that she was a "towel." In this picture, it shows the tweet Conor McGregor posted and pictures of Khabib Nurmagomedov and his wife's wedding ceremony. the wedding was very religious and meaningful, Conor McGregor insulted a traditional wedding. This tweet is very disrespectful and can show a violation of the right to adequte living standards or freedom of expression.
Burning of Religious Symbols
December 16th, 2016 a person in Italy Vatican started to burn Christian symbols. the Christan churches there also get vandalized quite often (Religious freedom brutally violated in Iraq and Syria,2016). In the image, you can clearly see that a person is about to throw or hit the fire with a religious cross. This violates their freedom of belief and religion.
3 Mosques are Shut Down
Caption goes here.
On January 2nd, 2019 three mosques were shut down in China due to illegal religious education. The mosques had been trying to get their establishments with the government for years, but their applications had been repeatedly denied (China shuts down three Muslim mosques, 2019). This picture shows over 100 police officers raiding a mosque. It was also stated the police were shoving worshippers and around 40 to 50 people were arrested. This violated the right to equality.
