SRINAGAR: The joint resistance leadership (JRL) has appealed people to organise peaceful protests after Friday prayers in solidarity to Palestinian brethren.
In a statement, JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik termed the “widespread genocide” of the people of Palestine as a brazen attack on humanity. The leaders condemned the use of brute force against the helpless people including women and children.
“Palestine and Kashmir are two faces of a single coin of subjugation. Be it Israeli aggression or Indian, we are forced to live in a similar uneven and uncertain political situation,” the leadership said.
JRL sought UN intervention to settle peacefully both the long pending conflicts of Palestine and Kashmir in accordance with the agreed principles of UN in order to put an end to the “widespread genocide and rule of tyranny in both the said disputed regions”.
