Al-Quds Committee member Sohail Abidi holds press conferences about this issue every year for garnering support of people.
International Al-Quds Day, an annual event is held on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan in Mumbai and other parts of the world for expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people and the holy mosque Al-Aqsa, located in Jerusalem (Palestine). On this day, peace loving people across the world come together and raise their voice in favour of Palestine’s freedom. Al-Quds Committee member Sohail Abidi wants the media to play a vital role and take forward the Palestine Freedom movement.
“We are supporting the cause of Palestine freedom movement. Israel must end its illegal occupation of Palestinian territories. We are holding press conferences about this issue for garnering support of people” said Abidi
When asked whether holding press conferences will resolve this issue he replied, “We are trying our best every year but the media should take this matter forward. Media can play a vital role in creating awareness about the Palestine freedom movement among citizens. Today media is considered as a strong medium and it has the ability to mobilise the thinking process of millions. With the rise of the press and its power to reach every nook and corner of the state it can also be considered as the fourth pillar of a democracy” he added.
Today peace loving Muslims representatives of Mumbai are united in order to protest against the killings and bombings happening in Palestine. They condemned the America sponsored terrorism incidents happening in countries like Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Bahrain.
Community of Olemas has appealed to the international community to take concrete action so that Palestine people get relief from the military operation undertaken by Israel. They have also condemned the terrorism incidents occurring in Iraq and Syria and wanted America to stop supporting the ISIS which is indulging in terrorist activities. America, Europe and some gulf countries has been supporting ISIS which has been spreading terrorism in Syria since last four years. The same people are sponsoring terrorism in Iraq too.
“America cannot fool the world through its double standards. On one hand America is helping ISIS in Syria and on the other side it is attacking the outfit in Iraq. Thus the true face of America will be exposed before the world” said Maulana Hasnain Kararvi.
The Quds committee is planning to hold a rally from Khoja Shia Jama Masjid, Dongri till Kesar Baug to protest against these incidents on July 17, 2015. Olema will address the people on this occasion.
The rally will be held under the guidance of Maulana Hasnain Kararvi, Maulana Faiyaz Bakir, Maulana Rooh Zafar, Maulana Zaheer Abbas, Maulana Hussain Mehdi, Maulana Vasi Naqvi.
