Dear Honorable Sir,


South East Asia Muslim Students Federation (PEPIAT) urge Cairo to protect the rights of its citizens amid the political protests taking place in the country, particularly freedoms of expression, information and assembly.

By referring to the increased and alarming human rights violations against street protesters especially among student activists which resulted in worse political turmoil in the said country, the President of the day bear the responsibility to be the listening government to the all Egyptians.

According to security and medical report, by 30th of January, at least 102 people had been killed and 2,000 injured since protests began.

We opined that such brutal acts are not proportionate and worth enough as the trouble would harm foreigners who are living in the country for employment and academic purpose.

Besides, undemocratic measures such as media censorships and internet shut down taken by government explicitly contradict to the rights of information of Egyptians and foreigners.

In short, we from international community are deeply deplored with the ways of the security force handling the crises and strongly call on government to guarantee the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and expression.

PKPIM menegaskan gagasan ini adalah merupakan satu pembentukan kesatuan yang ideal yang mendokong cita-cita ketamadunan Umat dan seharusnya digarap oleh seluruh pendokong gerakan dakwah serantau sebagai suatu mekanisme baru pemulihan Islam secara “zahiriyyah” dan “ghayah”.

Dalam pada itu Kesatuan Madaniyy yang ditawarkan PKPIM ini bersifat mendokong kesatuan yang paksinya adalah nilai ilmu, pendidikan-ta’dib, peradaban, ketamadunan, kehalusan tatasusila, dan kebudayaan luhur ke arah untuk membentuk susanan umat Asia Tenggara yang teratur dan tertib di bawah kawalan hukum undang-undang tuhan.

PEPIAT Condemns Israeli Attack against International Humanitarian Aid Flotilla

South East Asia Muslim Students Federation (PEPIAT) strongly condemns the brutal and fatal attack by the Israeli Defence Forces against an international humanitarian aid flotilla of ships (Freedom Flotilla) on international waters which were bringing much needed medical supplies, food, building materials and other necessities into Gaza.

This mission is a collaborative effort between Malaysian NGOs to join an international campaign to break the years of Israel siege on Gaza. They are working with several NGOs which is based in Cyprus, Turkey, Indonesia, and other NGOs from USA, Greece, France, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Venezuella and many other countries. This convoy has been led by an NGO from Turkey named Insani Yardim Vakfi (IHH).

According to the report, these international humanitarian aid flotilla of ships were attacked by Israeli Naval Forces that resulted in the killing of up to 16 people on board these ships and injury of dozens when troops intercepted the convoy of ships dubbed the Freedom Flotilla early on Monday.

In short, we opined that such attacks were totallly illegal, unjustified and disproportionate under international law as the ships intended to supply of 5,000 tons humanitarian resources from donations has been collected such as medicine, medical equipments, generators, food, money to bring relief to the people in Gaza. It is also a devastating and deplorable that the Israeli forces have attacked civilians on the flotilla.

In the name of humanity, we call on international citizens and Muslim community in particular to condemn such attacks by taking to the streets around the world to denounce Israel over its attack on the convoy of Gaza-bound aid ships. We urged all quarter’s particularly Muslim countries to constantly put pressure on Israel by voicing the matter out through international body and review their diplomatic relations with Israel government.

Short History of PEPIAT

South East Asia Muslim Students Federation (PEPIAT) was formed around 1970 by three student organizations which involved National Union of Malaysian Muslim Students (PKPIM), Indonesian Muslim Students Association (PII), and Assembly of Indonesian Muslim Students (HMI). Before the establishment of PEPIAT, student leaders from Malaysia and Indonesia kept visiting each other and shared their same visions and missions commonly to develop Muslim communities in South East Asia particularly among young generations.

Later, upon that, they agreed to form a coalition of student NGOs in South East Asia which was called PEMIAT. Among student figures which had contributed to the formation of PEMIAT were Anwar Ibrahim, Nurcholis Majid, Siddiq Fadzil, and Hussein Umar . Unfortunately, due to several of political problems in the region, PEMIAT was no longer becoming an active federation. However, PEMIAT was revived in 1988 during the period of Mustaffa Kamil Ayub when the name of the organization was changed to PEPIAT and it remains until today.

Currently, PEPIAT comprises of around 8 NGOs which consist of several student movements from South East Asia country such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, and Philippines.
