AUGUST 16, 1996: The Final Call newspaper reported on Min. Farrakhan and activists cry for justice in the death row case of Mumia Abu-Jamal.
“It is our contention that Mumia Abu-Jamal has been denied due process. It is our judgment that our Brother is entitled to be tried by a jury of his peers before an unbiased judge with effective and zealous assistance of counsel.
“In our opinion, this has been denied to our Brother,” said Min. Farrakhan in a letter to Pennsylvania’s Governor Tom Ridge. Also in this same edition, the Minister, in an open letter urged the Muslim world to help Bosnian Muslims suffering because or warfare in Eastern Europe.
“Regardless to what America does, the Muslim Nations have an obligation to help their Brothers and Sisters in Bosnia. We have an obligation to speak against the carnage that is going on there and to marshal the strength of all Muslim Nations and bring that strength to bear on an unjust situation,” said the compassionate Minister.
