Geelani Condemns Israeli Attacks On Gaza


SRINAGAR (ONS) – The Hurriyat (G), the Jama’at-e-Islami and the People’s Political Party have condemned the ongoing Israeli aggression on Gaza, saying that the silence of heads of Muslim states over the violence was surprising.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a press conference at his Hyderpora residence, the Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, asked Muslims across the world to “array themselves against the Israeli aggression on Palestine.”

“Muslim countries should intervene over the issue, and pressure should be built on Israel to its attacks on Muslims,” he said.

The Jama’at-e-Islami too has condemned the Israeli attacks on Gaza, terming them as a savage use of power, and expressed solidarity with the people of Palestine.

“In 1948, anti-Islam powers conspired to drive out Palestinian Muslims from their homeland and established the illegal Israeli state, giving it full protection and support,” it said.

“Despite the fact that the Israeli forces broke all records in brutality, the state was given full support so that it could maintain its illegal occupation and continue its immoral existence,” he said.

“Expressing surprise at the silence of various heads of Muslim states over the Israeli aggression, the Jama’at said that Muslims across the world should unite to express solidarity with the Palestinians and condemn the Israeli atrocities,” he said.

Hilal Ahmad War of the People’s Political Party also condemned the Israeli attacks, saying that it was time for the Muslim world to stand up to the common enemy of Muslims and give it a crushing reply.
