“Ummah has no shortage of weapons, only Muslim rulers lack honour. Muslims need to form their own army,“Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer SirajulHaqtold a massive “Palestine March” organized by Jamaat-e-Islami on the Shahrah-e-Faisal to express solidarity with Palestinians.
He said that Palestine would not free by just condemnation resolution but by jihad.
SirajulHaq said that the people of Karachi took to the streets today to prove that their hearts beat with the Palestinians, adding that the spirit shown by women and children, including men, was invaluable.
He said that the Muslim Ummah is alive, Muslims from all over the world including Istanbul, Jakarta, Kabul, Baghdad, Morocco and Tunisia are awake as the hearts of the Ummah are beating with the Palestinians, but the Muslim rulers have become slaves of America.
The JI chief said that millions of participants in the grand and historic “Palestine March” demandthat the countries of the Islamic world that have recognized Israel reverse their decision.
Speaking on the occasion, Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi Ameer Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman said that jihad for the liberation of the first qiblah is the duty of the entire Ummah and it is the responsibility of the rulers of the Islamic world to take a clear and bold stand against Israel.
Rehman said that Israel showed brutality against Palestine, attacked media houses, martyred oppressed and unarmed Muslims.
Then the people of the Ummah took to the streets to protest, after which the rulers opened their mouths. Jihad for the liberation of the first qiblah is the duty of the entire Ummah, he added.
