Mirwaiz Asks World Nations To Put Tel Aviv On Leash
SRINAGAR (ONS) – Kashmir University students on Wednesday held demonstrations in the campus to denounce Israeli attacks on Gaza which have left at least 140 Palestinians, including women and children, dead, and over 900 injured.
Students boycotted classes and held sit-ins in the varsity grounds for several hours, asking Muslim nations to break their criminal silence over the Israeli aggression which entered the eighth day of bombardment and missile attacks today.
According to reports, groups of volunteers went round all departments as classes began today, and gathered students at the administrative block for near day-long anti-Israel protests.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Hurriyat (M), Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, today condemned the brutal Israeli aggression in Gaza, saying that the wanton killing of innocent Palestinians was a challenge and an eye-opener for the Muslim world and the rest of the international community.
Stressing that putting Israel on a leash was the moral and human duty of the international community, the Mirwaiz regretted that so far the world, including the UN and the OIC, had taken no practical steps in this direction.
The Mirwaiz expressed solidarity with the Palestinian people, and said that the zone resembled the heart-rending scenes of Karbala.
Muslims, wherever in the world they might live, are a single entity, and it is our moral, human and religious duty to raise our voices against this bloodletting and naked aggression, he said.
Kashmir and Palestine figure at the top of the worlds list of outstanding issues, and unless they are resolved with equity and justice, there will be no end either to tensions and conflict nor to the killing of innocent human beings, he said.
