The JI delegation invited the Ulema in participating Gaza Million March. The Ulema assured their participation in it.
Speaking on the occasion, Hafiz Naeem said that the Muslim Ummah should come forward and play its due role on Gaza issue. “The silence of Muslim countries, OIC and United Nations over the barbarism of Israel has raised many questions and matter of concern.”
He asked the people to participate in Gaza Million March in large numbers to show their sympathy with the innocent people of Gaza.
Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman said that the innocent people of Palestine were being victimized by the violence of Israel, however; Muslim countries and the United Nations should raise their voice against the atrocities of Israel.
Mufti Muneeb lauded the efforts of Jamaat-e-Islami for raising its voice on the barbarism of Israel on the innocent people of Gaza. “Jamaat-e-Islami while raising its voice over the atrocities of Israel on the people of Palestine, interprets the voice of Muslim Ummah”, he added.
Mufti Muneeb urged that the people of Pakistan regardless of any sect, faction and religious binding should come forward and express their solidarity with the people of Gaza.
On the occasion, Maulana Abdur Razzaq said that every individual should participate in the Gaza Million March, as the pain of Gaza’s people is the pain of every Muslim.
Hakim Mazhar Hussain said that the Gaza Million March would be a symbol of Muslims’ unity and every person should participate in the March.
