Shirin Ebadi is an impressive woman. Nobel Peace Prize winner, practising lawyer in Iran’s courts, and tireless defender of democracy and human rights for the people of Iran, she puts her own safety and security at huge risk and has received not a few death threats in her time.

On Friday I had the great pleasure of attending the launch at Chatham House of the English translation of Dr Ebadi’s latest book (on refugee rights in Iran).

NO Discrimination in ISLAM!

That is what MRs. Ebadi believes.  Perhaps if she would not supported Islam she would not be alive by now!
