Appeals member countries to present unanimous resolution in UNO for settlement of Palestine, Kashmir issues
SRINAGAR: Chairman Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Geelani on Monday asked the OIC to play its active and effective role in resolving the issues faced by Muslim Ummah. He said the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has adequate resources to tackle problems and work to uplift humanity.
In a statement, Geelani welcomed the OIC statement on Kashmir and expressed hope that this institution “will leave no stone unturned” in playing its effective and pivotal role in world politics. “There is (a) dire need to represent the divine message of peace and righteousness of Islam and OIC is the best platform to promulgate and promote this message,” he said in the statement.
The hurriyat Chairman said OIC has a broader, pivotal role in international politics and stressed that its members should play the assigned role in resolving the issues of Kashmir, Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Qatar, and of Rohingya Muslims facing genocide.
Denouncing India’s statement that ‘OIC has no locus standi on Kashmir’, Geelani said New Delhi is “deliberately overlooking” the historical background and facts related to Kashmir issue. He hailed OIC for its stand on Kashmir and urged it to raise the issue at all international forums by highlighting the “atrocities” perpetrated by Indian authorities in the region.
Geelani appealed the OIC member countries to favour and present unanimous resolution in UNO for the settlement of Palestine and Kashmir issues and resolve all bilateral and political issues amicably.
The hurriyat chairman favoured peaceful political settlement in the Middle East. He said the OIC member countries should ask UN Secretary General to find ways and means to stop those “oppressive forces” responsible for bloodshed in the region.
He also hailed Bar Association for its moral support to its president Advocate Miyan Abdul Qayoom. Geelani said each and every section of society should resent and resist “sinister designs” and stand firm against “unauthorised, baseless allegations and defamation campaign” launched by NIA.
