Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik termed the widespread genocide of the innocent people of Palestine as a brazen attack on humanity and called for peaceful protests across Kashmir on May 18 after Friday prayers to demonstrate their solidarity with Palestinian brothers.

In a statement issued in Srinagar, they appealed to freedom loving people of Kashmir to organize peaceful protests in every nook and corner of Kashmir after Friday prayers in solidarity to the Palestinian brethren.

JRL termed the widespread genocide of the innocent people of Palestine as a brazen attack on humanity and condemned the use of brute force against the helpless people including women and children.

It said that 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.”

JRL sought UN intervention to settle peacefully both the long pending conflicts of Palestine and Kashmir in accordance with the agreed principles of UN to put an end to widespread “genocide and rule of tyranny in both the said disputed regions.”
