Iran’s supreme leader Khamenei tells judiciary to pursue Kashmir issue


Tehran: Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has called upon the Judiciary of his country to pursue issues like occupied Kashmir legally and adopt official position on such international issues.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Ayatollah Khamenei made these remarks at a meeting with high ranking members of Iran’s judiciary including Chief Justice, Sadeq Amoli Larijani.

“The judiciary should intervene from a legal position in such issues as sanctions, US confiscations and terrorism or [come out] in support of downtrodden personalities in the world such as Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky or the Muslims of Myanmar and Kashmir,” Press TV quoting the supreme leader reported.

In such issues, Ayatollah Khamenei said, the Judiciary should “decisively declare its supportive position or opposition so it is reflected across the world.”

While Kashmir is gripped in decades of bloody conflict with Muslim majority seeking their right to decide their political destiny, Muslim community of Myanmar has been facing a systematic deadly campaign of suppression.

This is the second time that Ayatollah Khamenei has referred to Kashmir in last 10 days.

Ayatollah Khamenei, during his Eid-al-Fitr sermon urged the Muslims worldwide to support the people of Kashmir who faced oppression even during the fasting month of Ramazan.

Nigeria has placed leading cleric Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky in detention and has come down hard on his supporters, reportedly killing dozens of them in a far-and-wide crackdown.

Myanmar has likewise been accused of leading a systematic deadly campaign of suppression against its Muslim community.

Kashmir has also been witnessing chronic ethnic violence and a New Delhi-ordered witch hunt in Indian Held Kashmir.


  1. Nawaz Sharif has declined to preside over a UN sponsored meeting “Silence on Kashmir”. Why has Prime Minister of Pakistan declined to preside over an important meeting on Kashmir? I feel enough is enough. He is a huge security’s risk for our National Interests. Nation must take a notice and take appropriate measures to counter this anti Pakistan conspiracy.Has Jindal’s Murree visit to do anything with it? Give it a thought if you have National Interests in your priorities.
