Srinagar, Dec 08: On the appeal of Mutahida Majlis-e-Ulema, an amalgam of various religious organisations, headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, massive protest rallies were held across Kashmir against the US president Donald Trump’s decision of giving recognition to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Almost all the major Masjids, shrines and Imam Baras of Jammu and Kashmir, the resolution framed by the MMU were read an passed unanimously by the people. In Srinagar, Ganderbal, Bandipora, Budgam, Pulwama, Baramulla, Shopian, Kulgam, Sopore, Qazigund, Anantnag, Banihal, Kargil, Dodga, Bhaderwah, Kishtwar, Rajouri, Poonch, the MMU resolution was read and passed amid condemning US president Trump’s unilateral decision.
According to MMU spokesman, Imams of all the mosques and shrines expressed solidarity with the people of Palestine in this hour or grave injustice and extended full support of the people of Palestine stating that entire Muslim world feels hurt by the dictatorial decision of US president.
The MMU also strongly condemned the government’s decision of caging the MMU patron Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and turning majority of downtown areas into military garrison on the eve of Friday following Eid-e-Milad-un Nabi (SAW). The MMU spokesman said it was a biggest irony that people were barred from reaching the central masjid to offer congregational prayers.
The MMU termed government’s decision of placing Mirwaiz under house detention as repressive measures and stated that converting entire downtown into a garrison reflects the autocratic mindset of the present regime in Kashmir. The MMU said strongly denounced the government’s decision of foiling the Rehmatal-lil-Alameen (SAW) conference that was supposed to take place in the historic Jamia Masjid in the wake of sacred month of Rabi-ul-Awal stating that the move amounts to direct religious interference stating that it was a biggest shame for the government that people of Kashmir were barred from paying tributes to revered Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
This gathering expresses deep anger and anguish against the US President Donald Trump’s decision of giving occupied Jeuraselum recognition of Israel’s Capital and terms this decision as totally unacceptable.
This gathering lays stress on the OIC and the UN to take strong note of Trump’s unilateral decision so that the anger and anguish found in the hearts of every Muslim across the globe is addressed.
This gathering clarifies that after declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, every citizen of Jammu and Kashmir feels deeply hurt and is of the belief that the decision is totally unacceptable and should be rolled back forthwith.
This gathering expresses solidarity with the thousands of Palestinians who are feeling distressed as this juncture and the people of Jammu and Kashmir vows to protect the sanctity of Baitul-Muqadas (masjid Al-Aqsa) as we believe it as obligatory for every Muslim as far as our faith is concerned.
This gathering wants to make it clear that the unilateral decision of declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Isreal is the outcome of the bonhomie between Israel and US and the direct violation of UN charter on which Muslims across the world cant remain silent and will resist the move tooth and nail.
