Top Kashmir cleric has cautioned the Muslim Ummah against plots by enemies of Islam to destabilize Iran and urged the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to play its role for unity among Muslim countries.
“Efforts are being made at the international level to destabilize two prominent Muslim countries Iran and Pakistan and there is an urgent need for all the Muslim countries to stand united and to keep their enemies at bay,” Mirwaiz Umar Farooq told a Seerah conference on Friday.
Mirwaiz, who is also head of multi-party Hurriyat Conference, said the two most powerful Muslim countries – Iran and Pakistan – were being seen as a cause of worry by anti-Islam countries and vowed that the Hurriyat Conference would not remain unconcerned over the changing world scenario. He said like any other country in the world, Muslim nations too had a right to defend themselves.
“We urge the OIC and other Muslim countries to help the Muslim countries iron out their difference and get united to save Iran and Pakistan from the inhuman economic sanctions imposed by the western powers against the two pillars of Ummah,” Mirwaiz told the seminar.
He said conspiracies were being hatched to divide Kashmiri Muslims on sectarian lines, adding that such efforts would be foiled at any cost.
Meanwhile, various religious scholars and clerics addressed the conference and expressed solidarity with the Iranian nation.
