Leader of Pakistan’s Jamaat-e-Islam believe, peace talks can never bring “victory” to the Palestinian people. They believe, Palestinians needs to continue fierce jihad against Israel. Last week, Jamaat-e-Islam arranged ‘Palestine March’ on the appeal of party chief Sirajul Haq to express solidarity with the people of Palestine.
Addressing the rally Sirajul Haq said that the participation of a large number of residents of Karachi in the march showed that their hearts beat with the Palestinians’. “The enthusiasm shown by men, women and children is invaluable”.
Rejecting the impression that the concept of Muslim Ummah has failed, he said that tens of thousands of people in Pakistan, Turkey, Afghanistan and other Muslim countries took to streets to express solidarity with Palestinians.
Haq said that Muslims all over the world, including those in Istanbul, Jakarta, Kabul, Baghdad, Morocco and Tunisia, are awake. “The hearts of the Ummah beat with the Palestinians’, but the Muslim rulers have become slaves of America”.
The JI leader dedicated the Palestine March to the issues of Muslims across the world. He said he had messaged Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh that he shared the ownership of each and every casualty in Palestine. He also vowed to avenge each and every ‘martyr’s’ death.
Haq said that soon after the Israeli aggression, he had approached Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, urging him to mobilize the Muslim world against Israel. He made it clear that the OIC’s mere condemnation and “lip services” are unacceptable.
He said, “Israel cannot defeat Hamas. Palestine will be free through jihad, not a mock resolution. Arab rulers support Palestinians, and Muslims need to form their own army”.
He also said that when the Indian army can enter Srinagar and the Israeli army can enter the holy land, why do Muslim forces not do the same.
He asked Pakistani people to donate generously to the Palestine Relief Fund established by the Jamaat-e-Islami’s charity Al-Khidmat Foundation. He accused the Pakistani government of backstabbing the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir. He made it clear that whoever tried to roll back the Kashmir issue would not be spared.
