Reverend Majed El Shafie – Human Rights for Religious Minorities
“You don’t have to be Yazidi to help Yazidis. I am a Yazidi when I am helping them. I am Jewish when I am standing against anti-Semitism. I’m a Sunni when I am fighting for the Muslim community in Burma and in China.”
Reverend Majed El Shafie’s was detained and tortured by Egyptian authorities after he converted to Christianity. Now he works to save religious minorities from persecution by extremists and totalitarian governments around the world.
