Islamabad: Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed on Monday lashed out at UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon over Kashmir issue and appealed to all Muslim nations to boycott the intergovernmental organisation.
Addressing in Jamia Masjid Al-Qadsia, Saeed also suggested that all Muslim-majority nations should call back their ambassadors from India besides boycotting India-made goods.
“If the UN general secretary feels that whatever is happening in Kashmir today is an internal matter of India, it clearly means that the country (India) has been given a free hand. UN has given New Delhi the liberty to do what it wants to,” Saeed said.
Therefore, we appeal to the leaders of all 60 Muslim nations to boycott institutions like UN and at the same, shut down the Indian embassies and send back the ambassadors,” Saeed added further.
He also urged the Pakistan government to openly support Kashmir issue by coming in support with ‘freedom movement of Kashmiris’. “Pakistan should openly stand with the freedom movement of Kashmiris. If it does not cooperate with the oppressed people, then this country will not get rid of its own problems due to Allah’s anger. Blood of Kashmiris invite us to openly help them,” he said.
Last week, a media report stated that Saeed advised the Nawaz Sharif government and traders in Pakistan to suspend all the business activities with its neighbouring country till the ‘independence of Kashmir’ is achieved.
