An eminent Indian Shiite religious Scholar Friday urged Muslims worldwide to follow Imam Khomeiniâ€™s stances for the liberation of highly sacred place, Baitul Muqaddas from the clutches of the Zionist regime.
In an exclusive interview with IRNA, Maulana Syed Kalbe Jawwad Naqvi, General Secretary of Majlis Ulema-e-Hind said that the International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Zionists illegal occupation of Baitul Muqaddas, the first Qibla of followers of Islam, and to express solidarity with the Palestinian people.
Lauding Imam Khomeinis initiative to designate the last Friday of Holy month of Ramazan as Quds Day for expressing solidarity with the Palestinians, Jawwad said that the Baitul Muqaddas issue is not only a Palestinian issue, it is a global issue.
He insisted that all Muslims should foster unity among themselves for the liberation of Baitul Muqaddas and in support of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people of Palestine.
â€œThe path is set, directions had been shown by the leader of the Islamic Revolution, the only thing Muslim Umma is to form unity and imitate those guidelines in practical ways for the liberation of the sacred place,â€ noted Shiite Scholar.
He further noted that the day unity will be formed among Muslims worldwide, the Zionists will themselves vacate the Baitul Muqaddas.
Jawwad was of the view that somehow the Zionists and imperialist powers were taking advantages of our disunity. He expressed his confidence that these arrogant powers do not have strength to stand in front of the united Muslim Umma.
He called upon Muslims around the globe to take a pledge on this yearâ€™s International Quds Day for fostering unity and to change the words into deeds for the noble cause.
Accusing Zionist Regime and the US for committing genocide against the oppressed Palestinians, Jawwad asked the Muslim nations to rise up against these arrogant powers.
After the triumph of Islamic Revolution led by Imam Khomeini (R.A.), the International Qods Day is observed across the globe to demonstrate for the liberation of Baitul Muqaddas and expressed solidarity with the innocent Palestinian people suffering from occupation and hardships.
Millions of people, across the globe, take to streets calling for an end to illegal occupation of Palestinian territories by the Zionist Regime.
