Condemns blasphemous video
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Sep 16: The Kashmir Economic Alliance today called for a complete shutdown on September 18 to protest the blasphemous and anti-Islamic video made in the US.
The KEA at a meeting here today condemned the video and termed it as a deliberate act to hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims across the world, the KEA in a statement said.
Chairman KEA Yasin Khan presided over the meeting, while representatives of KEA constituent bodies were present.
The meeting said it is a “deliberate war of hate waged by some countries against Muslims. The war of aggression and conquest has not come to an end against us. While we endure these sufferings with patience and dignity, we cannot endure anything disrespectful to our beloved Prophet (SAW).”
The KEA said the video has triggered anti-West protests world over and peace is at stake.
“Producing such videos which spread hate is a heinous crime. It is unfortunate that some vested interests try to project this as freedom of speech, which it is not,” the members said.
“Right to free speech does not mean that anyone is free to cause indignation and agony to 1.5 billion population of the world. Making and screening of such videos and other such acts of blasphemy is bound to cause unrest and destroy world order and peace,” the members said.
The KEA observed that the West has to curb these acts as it claims to be the “champion of peace”.
“While West and the U.S. claim to respect all natural and unnatural rights of people world over, KEA wonders how it can blatantly ignore the religious and emotional rights of 1.5 billion people.”
The meeting said Muslims all over the world revere all prophets of all faiths including Jesus Christ (AS) and Moses (AS).
The KEA has also appealed the OIC to “blacklist countries, corporations and other entities that show disrespect to our faith and boycott their services/products.”
Meanwhile, the KEA has appealed all traders and transporters to make the strike call a success.
