On the appeal of chairman Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani, people all over the state held peaceful protest demonstration and took out rallies on Tuesday against the Israeli aggression in Gaza, a Hurriyat statement said.
Syed Ali Geelani said that the protest demonstration by Kashmiris is proof of that if we can’t help them at this time but we equally feel their pain and agony and the killing of their innocent children are very painful for us too. The pro-Islamic leader of Kashmir once again condemned in strong words the double standards of the world community towards the Muslims and said that they are not taking effective steps to end the bloodshed of innocent people in Gaza.
“The Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu is the dreaded terrorist of the Jewish world while the American President Barack Obama and Prime Minister of England David Cameron are openly patronizing him. The new government in New Delhi is also patting the back of Israel under the curtain and they are happy over the massacre of the Muslims,” Geelani said.
The octogenarian leader said that this situation is lesson for the Muslims of the entire world that Christens, Jews and Hindus are united against them and they are themselves divided into different groups and sects. “Somewhere the Muslims are fighting in the name of Shia and Sunni and somewhere the Muslims have been divided into Davbandi, Baralvi and Salafi,” he said.
Geelani alleged that while the anti-Islamic forces are to be blamed for this situation but some ‘so called’ Muslim countries are also involved in this huge sin of group clashes. “Molvis and Mullah type short sighted people who does not understand the message of Islam, are also spreading this hatred among the Muslim Ummah and intentionally or unintentionally they are becoming the helping hands of the enemies of the Islam,” he said.
While reiterating the appeal for peaceful protest demonstration on 18 July after the Friday prayers, against the Israeli aggression and observing the last Friday of holy month of Ramadan (Jummah-tul-Vidah) as “Youm-ul-Qudus”, Geelani said that the public protest should be dignified, peaceful, organised and disciplined in every way and it should convey a message to the entire world that the pain of the people of Gaza is felt everywhere in the world and all the Muslims of the world are up in protest against this inhumanity.
