Rise up for Al-Quds!


Majlis-e-Wahdat Muslimeen and Imamia Students Organization organised an Al-Quds Day rally to express solidarity with the people of Palestine.
Ulema of different schools of thought besides a large number of people including women and children participated in the rally which started from Islampura and reached Faisal Chowk on Friday.
The participants were carrying banners and placards inscribed with different slogans against America and Israel.
Addressing on the occasion, MWM Secretary General Allama Abdul Khaliq Asadi said it was the day of unity among Muslims. He urged all Muslims to unite and raise their voice for the liberation of “Qibla–e-Awwal”.
Other speakers on the occasion said that Palestinians were suffering from unmatched problems and grievances since the 1940s when Zionist terrorists grabbed their land and imposed an illegitimate state on them. They said that Palestinians were forced to leave their homeland to become refugees for decades through massacre, violence and torture.
They said that all Palestinians including around 6 million refugees have a right to return to their homeland and live there for good. They said that international community should desist playing a hypocritical role vis-à-vis Palestinians. They said that legitimate national resistance of Palestinians and Lebanese should not be maligned and should not be defamed through media trial.
They praised the revolutionary leader (late) Imam Khomeini for his statement that armed resistance to Zionist occupation was the sole way to liberate Palestine. They appreciated Imam Khomeini and Imam Khamenei for observance of global Quds Day on the last Friday of Ramadan. The leaders called for Quds Day to be observed in the holiest month of the Islamic calendar and on the odd night of the last ten days of Ramadan.
TRAFFIC JAM: A massive traffic jam was experienced as a result of the Al-Quds rally along The Mall on Friday.
Commuters expressed resentment over the organizing of such a rally that resulted in inconvenience for them. All minor arteries along The Mall were gridlocked owning to The Mall being no-go area for vehicles.DSC_7791
