“The Israeli occupation is committed to the total ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people from all of historic Palestine & destruction of the holy sites which include the Masjid al-Aqsa & the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem,” he said.

He urged India to snap diplomatic ties with Israel over the brutalities to the Palestinians.

“Israel’s racist occupation has surpassed even the brutalities of the South African apartheid regime & thus we call upon the government of India to end all political, diplomatic, economic & military ties with this rogue regime,” said Quadri.

“We unite with all peoples’ movements and national resistances, peace loving citizens and democratic states of the world for the establishment of a Sovereign, Independent and Democratic state of Palestine with Jerusalem as the capital,” he declared.

The conference was also addressed by Feroze Mithiborwala, Syed Babar Ashraf, Secretary, All India Ulema & Mashaikh Board, Zuhair Hamdallah, Deputy Chief of Mission, Palestine Embassy, New Delhi, Syed Muhammad Ashraf Kichochawi, Gen Secretary, All India Ulema & Mashaikh Board, Shahnawaz Warsi, MSO General Secretary, Shujaat Ali Qadri, MSO National Secretary and others.
