H.E. the PUIC Secretary General reiterated his condemnation and denunciation of the burning of Al Aqsa Mosque by the Israeli extremist Right and its government. He described the event as a criminal barbaric action, and called on the glorious Islamic Ummah to uphold its total rights of keeping the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, First Qiblah and Third of the Holy Mosques, safe and free from all aggression. H.E. issued a statement on 48th anniversary of burning Al Aqsa Mosque which coincided with 21/8/2017.
His Excellency also called on the Ummah to shoulder its obligation in confronting the repeated criminal attempt carried out by the savage Israeli occupation authorities aimed at partitioning Al-Aqsa Mosque, time-wise and place-wise, through continuing to excavate in its perimeter with the purpose of demolishing it, if it could, in order to build the so-called temple; but that’s far-fetched.
His Excellency saluted the steadfastness of the Palestinian people, especially the citizens of Al-Quds. HE called for extending material and moral support to them in their standing firm against the continuous arbitrary Israeli measures, the most recent of which has been its condemned attempts to close the courtyard of Al-Aqsa Mosque in the face of worshippers and prohibit prayers and Azan in it. His Excellency commended the victory of the heroic stand and the valiant confrontation against those unjust measures which were crowned by rolling back the usurping occupying aggressors in ignominy and defeat.
His Excellency the PUIC Secretary General invites regional and International organizations, especially the UNESCO, to shoulder their full responsibility for protecting the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque in which the Jews have no right to it.
