What Students Should Know About a Coursework

Musharraf and religious party loose Pakistani elections

As we've been covering Pakistan's political developments over the last few months, eagerly publishing contributions from our Pakistani members who struggle in an environment of human right violations and Islamic integrism, we cannot but announce you the results of the recent Pakistani elections.

Whilst awaiting a new analysis from CRY, we refer you to this article/analysis on the website of the excellent South African weekly Mail & Guardian.

Note from the chief editor

When the contribution of our Pakistani members for this YouthSpeak reached me shortly after the assassination of Mrs Benazir Bhutto, it spurred me to dig deeper in the backgrounds of this crisis. The article that was sent to me attempts at explaining the current crisis by referring to several aspects that often go unnoticed in the mainstream media.

Pakistan - between Democratisation and Talibanisation

Since its independence in 1947, Pakistan has lived under firm control of military and civil burocracy. People have no say in its matters and even MPs openly condemned the parliament as a rubber stamp institution. Pakistan came into being in 1947 but it only managed a constitution developed in 1973 by its Parliament after the secession of Bangladesh in 1971. The constitution adopted after 26 years of independence remained in jeopardy from its conception onwards.

Déclaration de Paris

Cette déclaration a été adoptée, à l'unanimité, par le XVIème congrès international de l'Union Internationaliste Humaniste et Laïque (IHEU).
Le congrès s'est tenu à Paris du 5 au 7 juillet 2005 pour commémorer
le centième anniversaire de la loi française de séparation des Eglises
et de l'Etat du 9 décembre 1905.

Human Rights

The values underlying the Human Rights are very important to Humanism. The first directors of UNESCO (Julian Huxley), FAO (John Boyd Orr) and WHO (G. Brock Chisholm) were all prominent Humanists. Many Humanist principles have already found expression in international human rights conventions; Humanists have always supported the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Sharia Law

Humanists around the world oppose strongly the Sharia Law and have taken action against the existence of such law. You can check out the following links:

IHEYO resolution on sexual orientation

Humanism is deeply rooted in a profound respect for the individual human being. Human rights give each and every person the right and opportunity to be and choose whatever she or he wants as long as other rights are not violated by her or his actions.

The future of youth humanism


 Thank you for the thought-provoking article. I feel you have aptly dressed the strengths and weaknesses of the global humanist youth movement, but I'm sure more suggestions can be made. therefore, the forum is opened!
