The last Friday of the holy month of Ramazan has been named as the International Day of Quds with the special foresight and worldview of the great founder of the Islamic Revolution. Quds Day is a lasting heritage and one of the most important valuable relics of Imam Khomeini(R.A).
Holding Quds Day shows the confrontation between right and wrong and the lineup of justice against oppression.
This sentence was a relic of Imam Khomeini (ra) that “Palestine is a part of Islam” because it was forgotten at some point in time and the issue was reminded and revived thanks to the political view of Imam Khomeini. This day is not only the day of Palestine, but also the day of the Islamic Ummah, so for many years, the issue of Quds and Palestine, along with fasting during the holy month of Ramadan, has become the most important concern of the Islamic world. Al-Quds Day is a day when the whole Islamic world and the whole world raise their voices in disgust against ⁶the usurping Zionist regime and once again ally themselves for the liberation of the holy city of Al-Quds.
Today, more than forty years after Imam Khomeini’ sagacious srep in designating Quds Day as the first qibla of Muslims, the cry of the Palestinian people and all the oppressed of the world has reached the ears of the world and free thinkers and the legitimacy of the oppressed Palestinian people against state terrorism. Zionism has been revealed to the whole world with the support of the United States.
I, along with the friendly and brotherly people of Pakistan, who never recognized the Zionist regime under the guidance of Quaid-e- Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, , and the thoughts of Allama Iqbal (R.A), on the advent of the day of God, flagrantly condemn the criminal acts of the Zionist regime in occupied Palestine and in Other Islamic countries, as well as the support of Western and Arab supporters and declare our support and solidarity with the defenseless Muslims of this occupied land.
