Muslim Islamic NewsIndian Muslims demand government to break all ties with Israel

By T. Riyas Babu

The Milli Gazette

06 June 2010

New Delhi: Leading Indian Muslim organisations on Friday, 4 June, staged a massive rally here demanding an end to the trade and military relations between India and Israel. The demonstration was mainly to protest against the Israeli attack on the peaceful aid flotilla in the Mediterreanean in the night of 30 May leading to 19 deaths, about 60 injured and around 700 participants in the anti-siege campaign taken prisoners. Thousands joined the protest march that started from India Gate and headed towards the Israeli embassy on Aurangzeb Road but was stopped by the police on the Shahjahan Road. Many prominent social figures addressed the protesters stating the criminal act of Israel was a challenge to the world and India should taken effective notice of the same.

Tasleem Rahmani, President of the Muslim Political Council, speaking at the rally, said that the entire world was demonstrating in support of Palestine. “Millions of people in Palestine are living as if they are jailed, for no reason. They are not even allowed to enjoy fundamental rights. Here the caste or religion of those people is not important, we have to stand by the oppressed wherever he may be,” he said adding the UPA government should shut down the Israel embassy to protect the secular face of the nation.

Muhammad Adeeb, MP, said that Gandhi and Nehru were sympathisers of Palestine while the UPA government is totally with the oppressors. “UPA government is not following the footsteps of Gandhi and Nehru. 1.5 million of people in Gaza Strip are suffering for years, they are blocked out from the world in every sense. Israel dared the whole world by attacking the aid ships. They have to be kicked out of our country in all means,” he said requesting all the people to donate whatever possible to help the Palestinians.

CPI leader and member of Parliament Atul Kumar Anjan said imperialist powers were controlling Palestine for their own benefits. “People of Palestine have the right as any other country in the world to decide their own policies and plans. But the imperialists are trying to stop them from enjoying this birthright,” he said. Criticising the close relations of the Indian government with Israel, he demanded cutting off all ties with Israel. “The Free Trade Agreement our government is contemplating to conclude with Israel is a clear indication of the stand of our government, The agreement would facilitate our money to be used by Israel to persecute the Palestinians. That has to be stopped,” he said adding that the issue of Palestine was not an issue of any particular sect but of the entire mankind.

Social activist Swami Agnivesh said that it was under the shade of US, that Israel committed all brutalities. “USA is the only nation that supports Israel in the world. Both of these nations try to impose their imperialistic agenda on the world and try to make benefit from these brutal policies. We could see it in Afghanistan, Iraq and even in Pakistan. Though the US President Barack Obama speaks a lot, by action he is not different from former President W Bush,” Swami said stating “US is the enemy of the mankind”.

Maulana Arshad Farooqi of Markazi Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind said that Israel was a cancer to the entire world. “Israel has to be cut-off from the body of the world as it is a threat for the entire world and especially for the Arab world.” He called upon the people in the world to boycott the products and services of Israel.

KK Suhail, National President of the Students Islamic Organisation of India, questioned the duplicity of world powers in addressing terrorism. “If blocking and attacking aid ships carrying food and medicines brought by volunteers from all over the world is not terrorism, then what is terrorism?” he asked stating that the Palestine issue is the issue of the entire world. “The latest act of Israel has brought out its ugly face for all to see. This is why countries like Turkey, being a long time ally of Israel, are taking steps against them. India too should break all bilateral treaties with Israel and their companies should be kicked out of the country. The world should pressurise Israel to lift the Gaza blockade,” he said and called upon the people to lend financial help to the people in Palestine.

Dr. Zafarul-Islam Khan, Editor of The Milli Gazette, said that Israel had spread over the world like a menace. “Though Israel pledged under Oslo Accords, that the Palestine issue would be solved within five years, it has been 18 long years since and there is no trace of a sovereign Palestinian state and the occupation continues with all its brutalities. Israel is a symbol of deceit and fraud, he said adding that everywhere in the world you can see their presence as exporters of arms and providers of arms and guerrilla warfare training.

Mujtaba Farooqi, secretary of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Dr. Manzoor Alam, General Secretary of the All India Milli Council, Maulana Muhammad Hakimuddin Qasmi, General Secretary of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind and many others spoke at the demonstration demanding that the India government end its trade and military ties with Israel, stop buying Israeli arms and ammunition as it directly helps Israel to persecute Palestinians.

The protesters submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister as well as to the Representative of the United Nations in India demanding action against Israel for its war crimes, blockade and occupation.

The rally was jointly organised by Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Jamiat Ulema-e Hind, Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadith, All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat, All India Milli Council, Muslim Political Council of India, Indian Islahi Movement, Majlis-e Fikr-o Amal, Students Islamic Organisation and The Milli Gazette.
