Telah sekian lama presiden berperanan di puncak gerakan Islam sedunia. Komitmennya sentiasa diikhtiraf dan penglibatannya memberi kedudukan tersendiri buat PAS di mata dunia.
Sungguhlah bertuah sebuah perjuangan ini, dipimpin tokoh yang sukar dicari ganti. Malang, jika tiada pengganti ketika mahu menggantikannya ketika dia masih memberi sumbangan.
S Asia peace sans Kashmir solution impossible: QaziSource: OUR STAFF REPORTER submitted 7 hours 40 minutes ago LAHORE -
Jamaat-e-Islami ameer Qazi Hussain Ahmad has said that peace in South Asia cannot be maintained without giving Kashmiris their right to self-determination guaranteed by the UN resolutions. He asked India to end double standards with Muslim and fulfil all promises made to Kashmiris.
He expressed these views while addressing a special briefing session at the JI congregation Saturday held for the leaders of Muslim movements and visiting delegates from Muslim countries to apprise them about the Kashmir issue.
The briefing session was also addressed by ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Azad Kashmir Abdul Rasheed Turabi, head of the Shoora of Sudan’s ruling party Sheikh Abdul Raheem Ali and director JI foreign affairs Abdul Ghaffar Aziz. Qazi said that India was attempting to impose Hindu and secular culture upon Muslims and also patronizing Hindu fanatic’ movements to force Muslim minority to give up Islamic culture and adopt Hindu customs.
He said India had been displaying extreme stubbornness in allowing Kashmiri Muslims the right to self-determination and had kept calling Occupied Kashmir its integral part despite that UN resolutions called for a solution to the disputed Kashmir territory. Qazi stressed that it is the responsibility of Muslim countries to treat Kashmir as the issue of Muslim Ummah in the same way Palestinian issue is being treated and considered.
Sudanese leader Sheikh Abdul Raheem said Kashmir is sure an issue of Muslim Ummah and Ummah should feel the pain if Muslims were victimised anywhere in the world.
Abdul Rasheed Turabi said Kashmiri Muslims have been waging a struggle for 62 years to regain their freedom from Indian occupation in which over one hundred thousand people sacrificed their lives while two hundred thousand were wounded while countless people have been missing and held in Indian Army detention and interrogation centres.
Those who attended the briefing session included former Al-Aqsa Mosque Imam Sheikh Mohammad Siam, JI Lebanon secretary general Sheikh Faisal Al-Maulavi, Akhwanul Muslimoon Jordan president Dr Hammam Saeed, Muslim movement Tunis president Sheikh Rashed Al Ghannoshi, president Party of Islam Malaysia, Abdul Hadi Awang, Chief Minister province of Perak, Malaysia, Mohammad Nezar bin Jamaluddin, JI Bangladesh ameer Maulana Abul Kalam Mohammad Yousuf, and naib ameer of JI Pakistan Prof Khurshid Ahmad, Liaqat Baloch, Aslam Salimi, secretary general Dr Farid Paracha and others.
