Islamabad: Pakistan Ulema Council Chairman, Hafiz Muhammad Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi, has emphasized that unity among Islamic countries was the key to addressing issues such as Palestine, Kashmir, Islamophobia and other challenging concerns.

According to Kashmir Media Service, speaking to the media, he said leaders of Turkey, Qatar, and Iran raised their voices against the desecration of the Holy Quran during the United Nations General Assembly, highlighting the need to protect global peace, considering the emotions of over two billion Muslims worldwide.

He stated that the leaders of these three Islamic nations – Turkey, Qatar, and Iran – had criticized the West strongly for attempting to desecrate copies of the Holy Quran, pointing out that Islamophobia, including racism, was spreading like a plague in Western countries.

Ashrafi said Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s recent interview had made it clear that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had not been oblivious to the Palestine issue in the past, and it remained committed to playing a role in resolving both the Kashmir and Palestine issues as the head of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

In response to a question, he said Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in his recent interview had categorically stressed the importance of resolving the Palestine issue and improving the lives of Palestinians. He also mentioned that Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan had expressed his principled stance on Kashmir issue at the United Nations. The Saudi foreign minister made it clear to the international community that the Kingdom stood with Muslim nations, including the Kashmir issue and wanted to get it resolved in accordance with international agreements, treaties, and laws, he maintained.
