‘Kashmir, Palestine 2 faces of coin of subjugation’, JRL calls for protest

Calling Kashmir and Palestine ‘two faces of same coin of subjugation’, the Joint Resistance Leadership Wednesday called for protests to show solidarity with the ‘solidarity Palestinian brethren’.

“The JRL leaders Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik, have made an appeal to the people of Kashmir to organize peaceful protests in ‘every nook and corner’ after Friday prayers in ‘solidarity with our Palestinian brethren,” a statement issued here said.

The resistance group termed the widespread genocide of the innocent people of Palestine as a brazen attack on humanity and condemned the use of brute force against the helpless people including women and children, it said further.

“Palestine and Kashmir are two faces of a single coin of subjugation, be it Israeli aggression or Indian, we are forced to live in a similar uneven and uncertain political situation,” the statement said.
