UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and US President Barack Obama should use their influence to stop the Israeli aggression else the world may slide into a third world war
The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has strongly condemned the Israeli attacks on Gaza and other Palestinian cities and termed it as blatant aggression. He has expressed his heartfelt grief and sorrow on the martyrdom of many innocent Palestinian people in the attacks and urged on Secretary General of the UN Mr Ban Ki-moon and the US President Mr Barack Obama to use their influence to stop the Israeli aggression or the world may slide into a third world war.
Addressing the people of Pakistan in a state of deep grief Mr Hussain said, “I was sorely grieved on the brutal killings of innocent Shia and Sunni people in the country as a result of conspiracies of some elements and the cold-blooded killings of police, FC and armed forces personnel. Now this heart-rending news of unwarranted attacks with planes, missiles and other weapons by the Zionist Israel on Gaza and other Palestinian cities resulting in the martyrdom of many innocent people has greatly disturbed me.”
“While the bodies of the people martyred in the Israeli attacks are lying drenched in blood, the injured people including children, elderly, men and women are being shifted to the hospital in a painful condition. My heart bleeds at these harrowing scenes which are very distressing and unsettling for anyone from any nation and religion and believing in humanity.”
Mr Hussain appealed to the Government of Pakistan, particularly the president, the prime minister and heads of the armed forces to convene a conference of the heads of the Muslim states in Pakistan in order to deliberate on the issue of the Israeli aggression. He said that this time all the Islamic countries should take a unanimous decision that they would not tolerate the Israeli aggression this time. If the aggression did not stop, a second meeting should be called within a few days and it should be announced that everyone in the Muslim countries would march against Israel without caring about the consequences and Israeli tanks and weapons would be silenced once and for all.
Mr Hussain urged on the Secretary General of the UN Mr Ban Ki-Moon and President of the United States Mr Barack Obama to use their influence in stopping the Israeli aggression as it may suck the world into a third world war.
Mr Hussain sympathized with the innocent families of the people martyred and injured in the Israeli attacks and expressed complete solidarity with helpless Palestinian people. Addressing his well-wishers Mr Hussain said that he had spent 35 long years of his life fighting for the larger cause of truth and justice without caring about human desires.
“I am greatly disturbed on seeing this gross injustice. If I die or someone kills me because of my statement in support of truth and justice, I would appeal to all my well-wishers to continue working for truth according to their strength and not to waver from offering any sacrifice including their lives. It is my humble appeal and not any order.”
