Indian Muslim organization, the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, has condemned the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem terming it an affront to the world community’s united stand in this regard.JUH national general secretary, Maulana Mahmood Madani in an e-mail statement said that America would not gain anything by going against the “verdict” of the United Nations and the international community. “Instead it would create anarchy and chaos in the Middle East.”
Maulana Madani maintained that this attempt by the US would amount to legalizing the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories by the Israel since 1967. “Now it is clear that America does not have any interest in establishment of peace in the region” said Maulana Madani.
Maulana Madani while hailing the government of India for voting against America in the UN Assembly on this issue, demanded the government must unequivocally condemn the US’ arrogance.
