Some of the world's major powers have been playing dangerous games in the Middle East to further their own interests. Because of this the people of Palestine are constantly suffering from Israel's illegitimate rule and its cruelty and brutality.
NEW DELHI — Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, a premier organisation espousing the cause of Muslims the world over, on Sunday urged the international community to exert all its efforts to immediately stop Israel’s aggression on Gaza.
It said the ongoing tragic war in Gaza where the Jewish state is continuously bombarding the civilian population must be halted forthwith.
In a statement issued here on Sunday, the Jamiat said its president Maulana Arshad Madani, who is also a founding member of the Makkah-based Muslim World League, has reiterated that his organisation has always been a supporter of every struggle for the protection of occupied Jerusalem, Palestine and Gaza.
Israel, he said, is an usurper country that has appropriated the land of Palestine with the support of some world powers. And they are now about to eliminate the existence of the Palestinian people from this land.
Maulana Madani said the Security Council, the Muslim World League and other influential international organisations should intervene without any delay, and make positive and effective efforts to establish peace in the war-torn region. “If this does not happen, the range of this war may increase, and it may engulf the entire world,” he said.
Maulana Madani strongly condemned the Israeli army’s aggression, barbaric attacks and atrocities on Gaza, and said that this war is part of Israel’s permanent terror plans. In the end, as a natural reaction, the Palestinians showed extreme courage and bravery, and launched a counterattack on the tyrant Israel, that Israel could not even imagine.
Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, the statement said, considers attacks on Gaza as a serious assault on human rights and strongly condemns it. “It is a pity that today even countries which claim to be leaders of global peace and unity are silent on this cruelty,” it said.
Maulana Madani also regretted that due to differences in the stance of some major powers, the Security Council miserably failed to recommend any action against Israel.
He said some of the world’s major powers have been playing dangerous games in the Middle East to further their own interests. Because of this, he said, the people of Palestine are constantly suffering from Israel’s illegitimate rule and its cruelty and brutality.
Maulana Madani said India has always supported the rights of the Palestinian people. From Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Nehru, Indira Gandhi to Atal Bihari Vajpayee, everyone has always supported the Palestinian cause.
The irony now, he said, is that today the Indian media is labelling Hamas fighters, fighting for the recovery of its rights, as terrorists.
Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, the statement, said pays tribute to the courage, patience and steadfastness of the oppressed Palestinians.
