US Quds plot after concealing Mideast failures: Indian scholar

New Delhi, Dec 18, IRNA – A leading Indian religious scholar said the US aims at covering up the failure of its Daesh policies by trying to avert the public attention to its new policy of shifting embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Quds.

Head of the Majlis-e Ulema-e Hind (Indian Assembly of Religious Scholars) Molana Ali Hadar Qazi made the remarks while talking to IRNA in an exclusive interview on the sidelines of a protest rally against the US decision which was jointly attended by the Sunni and Shiite Muslims in New Delhi.

He said that the latest American policy towards the holy city of Quds which was recently pronounced by its President Donald Trump served the aim of diverting the attention of world public opinion from the failure of Washington’s policies towards Daesh in the Middle East.

He said the decision fell flat with even the US allies and friendly countries.

He said Muslims worldwide came out to voice their protest to the unilateral decision and condemned America’s plot to shift its embassy from Tel Aviv to Quds which implies recognition of the city as the capital of the Zionist regime.

Molana Qazi went on to stress that Trump’s decision stood in vivid contradiction with international regulations and United Nations resolutions.

He believed some countries in the region were keeping mum on the issue because they were only after protecting their own personal benefits which are interwoven with those of the US and the Zionist regime.

President Trump has recently ordered the Secretary of State to prepare the ground for shifting the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Quds. Many nations, Muslim or Non-Muslim, have objected to the decision as a violation of international laws.

In 1980, the United Nations Security Council Resolution 478 reaffirmed the inadmissibility of the Zionist regime’s gaining territory by force and prohibited any kind of change in character and status of holy city of Quds (Jerusalem).

However, in 1967, Israel occupied Quds and called it 'Eternal capital of Israel', but international community did not recognize the move and Palestinians consider it as their own capital. Muslims worldwide see occupation of Palestine as the root cause of all regional crises.

They say that US recognition of Beit ul-Moqaddas as the capital of the Israeli regime amounts to efforts to legitimize occupation.

Indian Muslims have jointed ranks to unanimously protest the decision by staging numerous rallies and gatherings across the country.
