The recent murder of a British Member of Parliament, Jo Cox is a horrendous reminder of what politics of hate, violence, and indifference can do to those who pledge their lives for the public services and those who stand up to make difference in the lives of their fellow beings.
As Britain has witnessed its first assassination of an MP in more than 20 year, tributes from all across the world have poured in ever since. Mrs Cox was attacked in her own constituency when a man with mental illness shot and stabbed Cox on a West Yorkshire Street. The man is said to have his allegiance with far right group, Britain First. The Labour MP has been a lifelong champion of human rights, equality and social justice.
She will be remembered for all involvement with charitable causes as well as her work with the refugees as she became a powerful advocate of human rights such as to resettle more migrants and to provide sanctuary to those fleeing war and persecution. As mentioned in a tribute by Mrs Cox’s Sister Kim Leadbeater said that her sister was ‘perfect’ and ‘genuinely made difference’ in the community she worked with.
Earlier today in a memorial service she was remembered as ‘a 21st century good Samaritan’
Global Minorities Alliance remembers the services of this wonderful human being who loved humanity regardless of its colour, creed and background.
Mrs Cox left us with a legacy to confront hate, bigotry, intolerance and promote justice, peace and equality in all its shape and form is the challenge
Our heartfelt condolence to Jo’s husband, family and friends who have lost a loving wife, a caring mother, daughter, friend and above all a human being which worked tirelessly to make a difference in someone’s life.
