Gita Sahgal Suspended


My colleagues Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens and Nick Cohen have already blogged about the bravery of Gita Sahgal for speaking up about Amnesty International’s accommodation of Moazzam Begg in today’s Sunday Times.

Depressingly, it now appears that Sahgal has been suspended by Amnesty.

Martin Bright rightly points out:

It is Gita Sahgal who should be the darling of the human rights establishment, not Moazzam Begg.

Further proof – as if it were needed – of Amnesty’s decline into the abyss of relativism.
