The International Coalition of Ex-Muslims has been calling on the Australian Government to take action on the case of the Founder of Faithless Hijabi. Zara Kay founded Faithless Hijabi only a couple of years ago or so and has been taken illegitimately into detainment repeatedly by Tanzanian authorities.
The International Coalition of Ex-Muslims has had contact with the Australian High Commission since October of 2020. This was based on concerns for safety. These are legitimate concerns because of threats against Kay.
Nonetheless, she was detained on December 28, 2020, by the Tanzanian authorities in Dar es-Salaam (Oysterbay Police Station) and then released on bail on December 31, 2020. Pro bono lawyers are working on the case in Australia and London to secure safety for Zara.
The International Coalition of Ex-Muslims claims to have a credible source stipulating the charges against Kay are politically-motivated. The source is unnamed in the reportage. However, the claim is members of the Khoja Shia Ithnasheri Jamaat community in Tanzania made the charges.
They are opposed to what they see as the activism, apostasy, and blasphemy of Kay. The International Coalition of Ex-Muslims is requesting further immediate action on the case of Kay for a safe passage out of Tanzania.
