World Chechnya Day
Thursday 23rd February 2006
On 23 February 1944, Stalin ordered the deportation of the entire Chechen and Ingush population to Central Asia. More than half of the 500,000 people deported died or were killed as a result.
To commemorate the genocide, events are taking place in cities throughout the world, including the following Islamic Societies:
Cambridge University ISoc
Bristol University ISoc
Sussex University ISoc
Bradford University ISoc
Southampton University ISoc
Trinity College Dublin Muslim Student Association
If your Islamic Society would like to take part, please contact Sr Hajira Qureshi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Numerous speakers, videos available. To purchase 'World Chechnya Day' wristbands (£1/wristband), please contact Sr Hajira Qureshi.
