Pakistan's religious party urges nation to remember Palestinians in Ramadan prayers
( MENAFN )According to chief Siraj-ul-Haq, Pakistan's religious party Jamaat-e-Islami is going to detect the next two Fridays as Palestine Solidarity Day.
Haq called the nation and religious scholars to remember Palestinians in their prayers in the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
He added that "I appeal to Pakistani clerics to highlight Zionist brutalities against the innocent Palestinian Muslims in Friday sermons in mosques and create awareness among the people about the first Qibla of Islam."
Every year the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan is known as "Jerusalem Day" in a number of countries, including Pakistan, to condemn Israel's 1968 occupation of Jerusalem. This year it will occur on May 7.
