Nationwide celebration of Palestine Day
|Following an appeal by the President of Jamiatul Ulama-e-Hind (JUH), Maulana Syed As'ad Madani, Palestine Day was observed and celebrated throughout the country on July 19 and prayers were offered for the improvement of the lot of poor, oppressed, homeless and uprooted people of Palestine.
JUH is a religio-political Muslim mass organisation which has been associated with the Congress Party during the Independence struggle and in the post-Independence period.
Protest demonstrations and meetings were organised in various mosques and places in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam, Bengal, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Haryana etc. Participants unanimously condemned the aggressive and expansionist policies of Israel, and blasted the illegal support and backing by imperialist powers like USA and UK at whose instance Israel is indulging in its criminal activities.
Speakers demanded the United Nations and the international community, including USA and UK, the supporters and Israel, the usurper, to stop the expansionist policy of Israel and get all the occupied Palestinian land vacated at the earliest. They also appealed to the United Nations and the international community to do everything possible for the rehabilitation of the oppressed and uprooted people of Israel and prepare the grounds for the establishment of a self-governing and independent state of Palestine.
Earlier, Maulana As'ad Madani, JUH chief and a former member of Parliament, said that the oppression and exploitation of the people and government of Palestine and cruelty, injustice, barbarism and terrorism of Israel has reached its climax. Describing USA as "the world’s biggest terrorist state", he regretted that the world community has totally failed in doing justice to the weaker and oppressed nations. He said that the poor and helpless people of Palestine have been evicted from their houses and localities and new Israeli settlements are being regularly built on their lands usurped by Israel.
He further said that mosques in Israel have been turned into casinos, taverns and hotels. Many of these have either been demolished, sealed or converted into Israeli places of worship. There are about 1200 such mosques in Israeli occupied land.
With reference to Palestine Day, Maulana Madani said that without justice, independence and restoration of human rights, peace cannot be maintained in the Middle East.
