25th Ramadhan : Jumatul Wida Being Commemorated as Yaum al Qods
Pakistan nation is commemorating Qods day on the last friday of Holy month of Ramadhan-ul-Mubarak today .
The day is marked to raise awareness and voice regarding the horrific attrocities of the putrid Zionist regime against the noble,oppressed nation of Palestine .
In 1948 international zionist movement with the active support of the imperial powers invaded the Palestinian lands housing al-Qods the first Qibla of the muslims. The process had started even earlier and resulted in rendering thousands of palestinian families homeless and colonization .
The expansionist designs of the usurping regime were materialized in the three deadly wars it later fought with the other Arab nations in middle east occupying Lebanese,Egyptian as well as Syrian lands.
Moved by this situation ,Imam-e-Rahil Imam Khomeini called the Israel , a cancerous tumour and called on the muslim nations all over the world to commemorate the last friday of the Holy month as International Qods day for expressing solidarity with the Palestinian Cause.
Imam-e-Rahil Imam Khomeini was also the first leader who through religious decree allowed the religious alms amount to be paid to support the Palestinian nation .
Such a decree came at a time when most scholars fearing reaction from global imperial powers and their hand picked puppets in muslim nations, avoided a direct support to the Palestinian cause.
The wisdom of Imam Khomeini is evident today as this day has become a rallying point for all muslims and infact all free thinking and conscientious people of the world to converge and register their resentment and condemnation on attrocities .
The awareness generated as a result of this helped Arab nations to wake up from deep slumber and get some of their middle eastern lands freed through resistance against occupation including the humiliating retreat from Southern Lebanese lands in May 2000.
The contiuning attrocities of the zionist regime never stopped as it again led to severe bombing campaign in 2006 against the oppressed Lebanese in 2006 where it was served a defeat resulting in the aggressor entity to change it's military leadership as acceptance of failure and forming of winograd commission to probe the reasons of missing on the war objectives.
Later in 2012 and 2014 Zionist terrorist state launched two unprovoked wars by bombing for several consecutive days civilian areas in Palestine and martyring thousands of literally besieged muslims of Palestine.
It is in this backdrop that the International Qods day is considered important to increase the awareness and highlight the severe human rights violations committed by the terrorist state of Israel.
Pakistani Shia muslims have been able to build a common ground by making this Qods Day an all inclusive event over these last four decades or so,ever since Imam-e-Rahil Imam Khomeini had issued the religious edict to this effect. This however has also come at a price as these processions have remained a routine soft target in the past.
In 2010 a deadly bombing on the eve of Qods Day in South west Pakistani city of Quetta left several martyred and injured.
It will also not be out of place to remember Shaheed-e-Rah-e-Qods Shaheed Adeel Abbas,who was martyred,here in Karachi ahead of the same day,two years ago.
It is also time to remember the Qods Day bomb attack martyrs near Safari Park in Karachi.
Please recite a fateha for these Shohada and Shohada-e-Millat-e-Jaffaria Pakistan. Please turn up in large numbers in Qods Day rallies that are being taken out in different parts of the country.
