Srinagar: Mutahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) headed by Mirwaiz Umer Farooq strongly condemned the American decision to declare Al Quds Al Sharief (Jeuraselum ) as the capital of Israel and called for protests on Friday against the move.
In the joint statement issued here, the MMU termed Trump’s decision as purely anti-Muslim and anti-Palestine stating that the move amounts to stabbing the heart of every Muslim.
“Mass protest rallies shall be organised in every masjid, shrine and imam bara of Kashmir against the decision which amounts to trampling of rights of innocent people of Palestine and also hurting the sentiments of Muslims.
The MMU said that a joint resolution condemning the Trump’s decision shall be passed in all masjids, shrines and Imam Baras across Kashmir at the Friday congregational prayers. The MMU said that after Trump’s dictatorial decision of declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has created deep anger and resentment against the USA.
“Muslims across the globe hold Baitul Muqadas in high esteem due to its affiliation with the Prophet Muhammad’s (SAW) journey to the skies and all Muslims used to bow their heads before the Masjid-e-Aqsa also known as (Qibla-e-Awal),”statement said.
The MMU said that Trump’s decision of declaring Jeuraslem as the capital of Israel will further trigger and deepen the rift between Israel and Palestine.
The MMU also termed the decision of Trump as the direct violation of UN charter.
The decision seems to be a direct outcome of the bonhomie between US and Israel and the move will be resisted by all the Muslims including those living in Jammu.
