Say no Muslim can accept this decision, call for peaceful protests after Friday prayers

Srinagar: Joint Hurriyat leadership comprising of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Muhammad Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik on Thursday asked people to stage peaceful protests against US decision of declaring Jerusalem as Israeli capital after Friday prayers.

“Jerusalem represents the religious aspirations of about a billion Muslims living across the Globe. This is our Qiblae Awwal (The first direction of prayer) and no Muslim can ever accept it as the capital of Zionist state of Israel. By taking this kind of irrational decision, US president Donal Trump is actually showing his imprudent politics, fascist behavior and enmity against Muslims,” they said in a statement.
