The largest Indian Muslim organization, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind condemned the opening of US embassy in Jerusalem and termed it affront to the world community’s united stand in this regard.
JUH National General Secretary, Maulana Mahmood Madani in his press statement said that America would not gain anything by going against verdict of the United Nations and other international community, instead it would create anarchy and chaos in the Middle East.
Maulana Madani maintained that this attempt by US would amount to legalizing the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories by Israel since 1967. “Now it is clear that America does not have any interest in establishment of peace in the region” said Maulana Madani.
Maulana Madani while hailing the Government of India for voting against America in the UN Assembly with regard to the same issue, demanded that the Government must unequivocally condemn this Us arrogance in tune with India’s historically held position that is; India is with independent Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital.
