Srinagar: Joint Hurriyat leadership comprising of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik on Thursday asked people to stage peaceful protests against US decision of declaring Jerusalem as Israeli capital after Friday prayers.
“Jerusalem represents the religious emotions and aspirations of about a billion Muslims living across the Globe. This is our Qibla I Awwal and no Muslim can ever accept it as the capital of Zionist state of Israel. By taking this kind of irrational decision, US president Donal Trump is actually showing his imprudent politics, fascist behavior and enmity against Muslims,” they said in a statement.
Terming the US decision as naïve and dangerous for the international peace, Joint Hurriyat leaders said that these kinds of unilateral anti-Muslim decisions are bound to deteriorate and damage already fragile peace and tranquility of the world.
“No Muslim can ever accept Jerusalem as the capital of Zionist state and so this decision is bound to fail,” they said.
Joint Hurriyat leaders appealed Muslim Ummah to unite against this bizarre US decision and support the Palestinian cause.
“This world can never taste real peace, tranquility and progress if such kinds of decisions are implemented and instead of resolving the disputes confronting humans more problems are twisted, added JRL. Leaders said that Kashmiris are and will continue protesting against this horrible US decision and tomorrow on 8th December 2017, will stage peaceful protests across the valley after Friday prayers,” they said.
