Srinagar, December 08 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema (MMU) headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has strongly condemned the US decision to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The MMU in a joint statement issued in Srinagar termed Donald Trump’s decision as purely anti-Muslim and anti-Palestine stating that the move amounts to stabbing the heart of every Muslim.

It said that Trump’s dictatorial decision has created deep anger and resentment against the US. “Muslims across the globe hold Jerusalem (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),” it added.

The MMU said that Trump’s decision of declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will further trigger and deepen the rift between Israel and Palestine. It also termed the decision of Trump as the direct violation of UN Charter.

The leaders and organisations who condemned the move of the US administration under the banner of MMU included Jamaat-e-Islami spokesman Advocate Zahid Ali; Dr Abdul Lateef Alqandi of Jamiat-e-Ahl-e-Hadees; Karwan-e-Islami patron Maulana Ghulam Rasoo Hami; Patron of Darul-Uloom Rahemiya Maulana Rehmatullah Qasmi; Anujuman Sharie Shian President Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi-Al-Safvi; Anjuman-e-Itehadul Muslimeen President, Maulana Abbas Ansari; Grand Mufti of Kashmir, Mufti Bashir-ud-Din; President of Anjuman-e-Tableegh-ul-Islam Maulana Fareed-ur-Rehman Bukhari; Patron of Anjuman-e-Himayat-ul-Islam Maulana Khursheed Ahmed Qanoongo; Patron of Islamic Study Circle Dr Yousuful Umar; Maulana Lateef Ahmed Bukhari of Anjuman-e-Mazharul Haq; Head of Darul Uloom Bilalia Maulana Abdur Rashid Muftahi; Head of Darul Uloom Qasmiya Mufti Nisar Ahmed Qasmi; and President of Anjuman Ulema-e-Ahnaf Maulana Akhzar Hussain.

Meanwhile, Jamaat-e-Islami of occupied Kashmir in a statement in Srinagar denouncing the US decision said, “The Zionists illegally and immorally occupied the land of Palestine in 1948 with the connivance of the so-called world powers. All the anti-Islamic forces played an open role in the creation of this illegal territory of Israel by forcibly evicting the native people of Palestine mostly Muslims and on resistance thousands of innocent Muslims were massacred.”
