Statement: Sheikh Zakzaky is returning to Nigeria after being denied medical treatment in India

A message from the Free Zakzaky Global Campaign & Ahlulbayt Islamic Mission (AIM)

Dear activists around the world,

From the beginning, our campaign was to ensure Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife receive the urgent medical treatment they required. Unfortunately, despite travelling to India they were denied this medical treatment and harassed by Nigerian and Indian security forces.

Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife were consistently denied access to their medical team, denied access to their lawyers and denied access to their advocates and friends. They were treated like criminals since the moment they arrived in India, such that Sheikh Zakzaky was not permitted to move freely within the hospital and the couple were surrounded by armed officers. We are especially disappointed with Indian authorities that allowed such mistreatment to take place at the hands of the Nigerian security forces. This entire ordeal has been despicable to say the least.

Our campaign continues. We will not rest until Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife receive medical treatment. Our protests and campaign will not end until our demands are met.

Wherever you are in the world, we urge you to continue the struggle. Inshallah victory will come from Allah.
