New Delhi: In the backdrop of US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israeli capital, Jamiat Ulama Hind organized an advisory meeting for Palestine. Ambassadors of Muslim countries, members of parliament and intellectuals strongly condemns the US decision.

In an emotional speech, Palestinian ambassador to India Adnan M.A. Abualhayjaa said ‘6th December is the Black Day in our history’. He said the world doesn’t know what sacrifices we can made for Masjid-e-Aqsa. He further said by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, US has lost its role as mediator now it has become a party.

Turkish ambassador Shakir Uskan Turunlar said ‘Turkey is the first country which raised strong voice against the move and played key role in making it the issue of Islamic world.’

Iranian ambassador Ghulam Raza Ansari said Iran is standing with Palestine and will always do so. He hoped that Palestine will be free one day.

Leader of Communist Party of India Sitaram Yechury asked the Indian government to stop buying weapons from Israel, because the country is using the money to exploit Palestinians.

General Secretary Jamiat Ulama Maulana Mahmood Madani said government of India should adopt its old policy regarding Palestine. Deviating from Gandhi Ji’s policy on this issue will be destructive.

Jamiat Ulama announced protest processions on December 22, in all the cities of India, including national capital Delhi.
