Stop the Collective Punishment of the Farooqi Family

Case Background:

Munir Farooqi is a muslim who ran a “dawah” (Call to Islam) stall in a Manchester market. Two police officers intent on entrapment pretended to convert to Islam through his stall, and then continually visited him and instigated conversations and discussions regarding controversial political issues. Due to clever manipulation of the facts (falsification of evidence) by the prosecutor together with questionable testimony by the authorities, whose previous undercover activities in other police services have included lying on the stand, perjury, by testifying officers, during previous trials involving environmental activists. The unjust and illegal conduct by the officers and prosecutor led to this popular family man as well as two others (Mathew Newton and Israr Malik) being convicted of various spurious charges, clearly drummed up to justify the high cost of a wild goose chase in these times of financial austerity.

Munir Farooqi is now serving life in prison purely because of his alleged beliefs. Tony Porter, head of the so-called “counter terrorism unit”, described the following:

“This was an extremely challenging case, both to investigate and successfully prosecute at court, because we did not recover any blueprint, attack plan or endgame for these men. However, what we were able to prove was their ideology.”


Of course the Manchester Police, who are well known to have members of the British National Party (BNP) and English Defense League (EDL), groups well documented for their anit-Islamic and racist idealogies, within their rank and file, are not happy only with three innocent men going to prison, and are now targeting the family of Munir Farooqi, attempting to seize their family home. The youngest child of the home is only eight months old.

When we look at this reality, and this act, its clear this is a test case. The Farooqis, with no roof over their head, would have to look for accommodating friends and family, or else “go back where they came from”.

Article 33 of the Geneva convention states:
No protected person may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited.”

Actions Required:

  • Write to Tony Porter of Manchester Police, advising that their actions against the Farooqi Family are a form of collective punishment that is not only immoral but also illegal.
  • Write to the Crown Prosecution Service, discussing the above.
  • Write to your MP discussing the above, informing them of your disgust with Manchester Polices’ strategy of collective punishment.
  • Write to Munir Farooqi, Matthew Newton and Israr Malik, letting them know that you are aware of their case and the unjustness of their convictions.
  • Sign the Save the Family Home petition.
