Lahore Friday Prayer Leader:‎
Rasa – Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Jawad ‎Naqvi ‎said, “The United Nations has declared that Israel ‎is an usurper and asked them to end their ‎occupation of the Golan Heights. Donald Trump’s ‎recognition is a disgrace for all Muslims and ‎specifically for Arabs.”‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in ‎‎the‎ ‎‎‎‎‎Pakistani city of Lahore, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Jawad ‎Naqvi ‎referred to internal Pakistani ‎issues and noted that the country’s budget will be released in June, saying, “The support ‎which the economy of Pakistan needs has not been provided. The economy is dependent on ‎few things, such as national resources and development. Pakistan’s agriculture, industrial and ‎tax system is lacking.”‎

The principal of Jami’at Urwat ‎‎al-Wuthqa Islamic ‎Seminary continued, saying, “In Pakistan, ‎not even 5% of the people pay taxes and even if they give it, the government cannot use it ‎for welfare work because there is corruption. Administrations come and inflation continues ‎and they leave the Pakistan economy indebted and this has continued for the past 70 years. ‎The Pakistani government pleases sometime the United States and other times, the Arab ‎monarchies and our politicians have to dance to the tunes of other countries and then they ‎throw some money, especially from the Arab countries. This is not worthy for the Pakistani ‎nation.”‎

He stated, “Today the Pakistani community has received the impression that they are ‎beggars. When [the President of the United States‎] Donald Trump visited Saudi Arabia, 18 ‎diplomats from Pakistan went there. Our Prime Minister [Imran Khan] also went. He was ‎made to sit in one corner where he was not seen at all. The world looks at us as beggars. ‎To establish an economy by begging is the most disliked economy.”‎

He also referred to the target killings which have increased in various cities in Pakistan and ‎said, “Shi’ahs are being attacked in various places, especially in Quetta. In Karachi, the ‎famous scholar of Pakistan, Mufti Taqi Uthman was attacked but he survived. This is a sign ‎for Pakistan as well as Karachi. In Dera Ismail Khan, the security situation has been very ‎disturbing for Shi’ahs. There have been pamphlets thrown and both terrorists and police are ‎attacking the Shi’ahs but we don’t know why the government isn’t taking any steps in this ‎regard.”‎

In regard to the floods in Iran, Hujjat al-Islam ‎Naqvi ‎said, “We pray to God to grant ‎salvation to all the victims of flood.”‎

‎His Eminence referred to Trump’s recognition of the Golan Heights as being under Israeli ‎sovereignty and said, “Trump’s announcement creates tension in Middle East. The Golan ‎Heights is the mountainous region of Syria which Israel occupied in 1967. The Arabs would ‎attack Israel to free Palestine but Israel would defeat them and Israel captured certain parts ‎of their land. The Sinai Peninsula was also captured by Israel, Palestinian lands were ‎occupied, part of Jordan and even Lebanese territory was taken by Israel. In Lebanon, ‎Hezbollah has liberated Lebanese territory from Israel and only one small village is under ‎Israeli control. The Golan Heights is a strategic territory. Damascus is in the range of Golan ‎Heights. The United Nations has declared that Israel is an usurper and asked them to end ‎their occupation of the Golan Heights. Trump’s recognition is a disgrace for all Muslims and ‎specifically for Arabs.”‎

He referred to the events in occupied Palestine and said, “In regard to this situation, Israel ‎has brutally attacked the Gaza Strip but the people of the Gaza Strip are still are showing ‎perseverance. Abdul-Fattah al-Sisi [the President of Egypt] has reportedly sent a delegation ‎from Egypt to the Gaza Strip ‎to stop the ‘Return to Land’ movement which takes place on ‎the border on every Friday. This is the work of the Arabs. Look at the plans of Israel and ‎look at what the Arabs are thinking. Oman, under Sultan Qabous, has sold all its airbases ‎and seaports to the United States. This selling of all airbases ‎and seaports is the preparation ‎for the upcoming war against Iran.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam ‎Naqvi ‎also referred to the situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir and said, ‎‎“There is suffering in Kashmir and the Gaza Strip and the suffering in Kashmir is more severe. ‎Israeli troops don’t enter every home in the Gaza Strip ‎but in Kashmir the Indian forces ‎barge into homes, molesting women, insulting people and arresting them. They are arresting ‎important personalities and there is great fear in Kashmir and in the situation where there is ‎no support for Kashmir, it has become difficult for Pakistan to raise its voice. The moment ‎Pakistan raises its voice, India puts Pakistan under international pressure. It’s through ‎resistance that the Kashmiri people will achieve salvation.”‎
