8 years on still there is little respite for the real victims of the War on Terror. This event provides an opportunity to remember the victims of illegal rendition detainment and torture, control orders, SIAC court rulings and all other measures imposed to unlawfully strip Muslim prisoners in the UK and abroad of their dignity, freedom and liberties- 'guilty' either by association/ circumstance or for expressing an opinion/ voicing openly an authenticated article of faith.

This Iftar has been arranged to remember the plight of these prisoners and their families.
