SRINAGAR (ONS) – Comparing Kashmir to Palestine, the chairman of the JKLF, Muhammad Yasin Malik, on Monday said that Arab and Islamic nations had failed to ensure the safety and security of Muslims.
By their silence and patronage, countries championing the cause of humanity and democracy have become partners in the extermination of human-beings, Malik said, while paying tribute to the Aali Kadal martyrs, including Sheikh Abdul Hameed, Mushtaq Ahmad Lone, Jameel Ahmad Chaudhary, Fayyaz Ahmad Sheikh, Mushtaq Ahmad Kotay, Manzoor Ahmad Khan and Ghulam Ahmad.
World governments are turning increasingly oppressive, and people across globe are falling victim to their brutal statecraft, he said.
Hundreds of thousands of people in Kashmir have fallen prey to state-sponsored violence for demanding their rights, and this is continuing even today, he said.
Today, before the wide open eyes of the world, Israeli statecraft is perpetrating a bloodbath of Palestinian women, children and the sick and suffering. Even the most hard of heart weep tears on seeing the Palestinians being quartered so mercilessly, he said.
Watching it all mutely, the world, including Europe and America, are encouraging Israeli terrorism, and becoming partners in this unwarranted killing of human beings by their silence and patronage, he said.
It is absurd to expect people to remain peaceful when their children are being blown up with bombs and missiles, he said.
Thus, this Israeli terrorism can only lead to further violence, he said.
Coming down heavily on the silence of Arab and Islamic states, Malik said that non-state actors take to the field once rulers fail in their duty to safeguard the lives of other Muslims, creating more anarchy.
The blood of innocent Palestinian children is today smeared across the face of humanity, crying for it to die of shame, he said.
If the US, Europe and other world powers want global peace and stability and an end to violence, they should ensure the end of state oppression in regions like Jammu and Kashmir and Palestine, he said.
Nothing can save the world otherwise, he said.
