Walid Abu Ali, Palestinian ambassador to Pakistan, said that Muslims cannot get their independence unless they are united and sort out their disputes. He said that Islam taught us about unity and faith but Muslims follow infidels’ ideology and the infidels are united following Islamic ideology for vested interests.
“The Nakba day reminds us that Zionists stormed into Palestine and occupied the sacred land. Zionist Israelis forced millions of Muslims to leave their beloved country and they are still waiting to return to their homes,” he said. He appreciated Pakistan’s efforts on every international forum for Palestinian Cause and Mission.
