Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani Issues Statement on Kashmir:‎
The revered source of emulation has condemned the ongoing killing of the people of ‎Kashmir and called for an immediate end to the acts of aggression and siege by the Indian ‎army against the people of this region. ‎

RNA – In a statement, Grand Ayatollah Hoseyn Nouri-Hamadani condemned the ongoing ‎‎killing of the Muslim inhabitants of Indian-occupied Kashmir and demanded an immediate end ‎‎to the acts of aggression and siege by the Indian army against the people of this region. ‎

Indian-occupied Kashmir has been under heavy security and an unprecedented ‎communication ‎lockdown since August 5th, when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ‎his government ‎decided to revoke the privileges of Jammu and Kashmir, including a right to ‎their own ‎constitution.‎

The message text of this imitation reference is as follows:‎

In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful‎

Unfortunately, unpleasant news is coming from Indian Kashmir these days. The silence of ‎‎international organizations and defenders of human rights concerning such actions is ‎regrettable.‎
‎ ‎
They have besieged the Kashmir Valley and cut off communications and have forbidden any ‎‎form of gathering, even Friday and congregational prayer. In the event of any gathering, ‎they ‎respond with bullets. The oppressed people do not even have the security to prepare ‎food and ‎acquire the basic necessities. Pictures and reports have reached us of which ‎mankind is not ‎capable of seeing and all these actions are inhumane behaviour.‎
‎ ‎
All free people, especially the Islamic Ummah, government officials, scholars and human ‎rights ‎institutions must take serious action concerning this matter. If they remain silent, ‎Kashmir will ‎enter a more dangerous and unfortunate stage. Therefore, it is the duty of each ‎one of the free ‎people of the world – including all colours, races, religions and especially the ‎Islamic Ummah and ‎the governments – not to remain silent in the face of this great insult ‎and inhumane aggression.‎
‎ ‎
The Indian authorities must also recognize that its oppressive actions will only result in ‎instability ‎and create further distance between the followers of religions across India and ‎they must provide ‎the grounds for the peaceful life for all Shi’ahs, Sunnis and Hindus and ‎they must stand together ‎as they did in the past.‎

In condemnation of this inhumane behaviour, I call for an immediate end to the killings and ‎‎military blockade of Kashmir and we emphasize upon the defence of every oppressed ‎person ‎anywhere in the world.‎
‎ ‎
Hoseyn Nouri-Hamadani ‎
