The Joint Resistance Leadership has urged the people to observe the last Friday of Ramadhan (June 8) as ‘Palestine and Kashmir Day’.
The JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik made this appeal in a resolution, which reads: “This grand congregation resolves that the world community should rise to the occasion to solve the issues of Palestine and Kashmir and help curb the atrocities perpetrated on the people of both these regions of the world.”
The resolution said the congregation fervently appeals the OIC to bar the “nefarious designs of Israel for its illegitimate occupation of Al-Aqsa masjid”.
“This congregation resolves that the UNO should fulfill its commitment to solve the Kashmir issue in accordance with its agreed resolutions.”
The resolution said the congregation appeals the world community to take a serious note of the “rule of oppression and gross human rights violations at the hands of forces”.
“The prevailing state of absolute lawlessness in Jammu and Kashmir has rendered the civil liberty, honour and dignity of the general public as highly vulnerable. People on one pretext or the other get killed, maimed and incarcerated on fabricated grounds and languish in jails without any trial and justice,” the resolution reads.
It further said the congregation pays rich tributes to all martyrs of our freedom movement and pledge to carry on the ongoing movement for right to self-determination to its logical conclusion.
“This congregation condemns the vile acts of state terrorism perpetrated on the people of Kashmir by the forces,” the resolution reads.
