Iran's Khamenei tells Iran judiciary to pursue Kashmir issue

In such issues, Ayatollah Khamenei said, the Judiciary should “decisively declare its supportive position or opposition so it is reflected across the world.”

Iran’s supreme leader and Shia Muslim’s spirtual head Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has called upon the Judiciary of his country to pursue issues like Kashmir legally and adopt official position on such international issues.

 

The Leader made the remarks on Monday in a meeting with Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani and other officials of the government branch.

 

“The Judiciary should intervene from a legal position in such issues as sanctions, US confiscations and terrorism or [come out] in support of downtrodden personalities in the world such as Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky or the Muslims of Myanmar and Kashmir,” Press TV quoting Khamenei as saying. 

 

In such issues, Ayatollah Khamenei said, the Judiciary should “decisively declare its supportive position or opposition so it is reflected across the world.”

 

The report said Myanmar has been accused of leading a systematic deadly campaign of suppression against its Muslim community while Kashmir has also been witnessing chronic ethnic violence and a New Delhi-ordered witch hunt in its India-controlled half.

 

Khamenei urged the Judiciary to act as the flag-bearer of defending the public rights in the society.

He said the branch should authoritatively guard the people’s rights, and confront felony and lawlessness.

 

This is the second time that Iran’s Supreme leader has referred to Kashmir in last ten days.

 

Earlier, Ayatollah Khamenei, during his Eid-al-Fitr sermon urged the Muslims worldwide to support the people of Kashmir who faced oppression even during the fasting month of Ramadan.
