Social Democratic Party of India-SDPI organized a massive protest match at the UN Headquarters situated here at Lodhi Estates at 11AM to condemn the Israel’s unjust attacks on innocent civilians in Gaza, Palestine. The Party activists also met and submitted a memorandum with the UN officials at their headquarter.
Party vice president Hafiz Manzoor Ali Khan expressed his grave concern regarding the US support to the Israel in its aggression.
General Secretary Afsar Pasha said Israel has been practicing apartheid against Palestinians. Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality. It has systematically incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians, contrary to the rules of international law. It has, in particular, waged a war against a civilian population, in particular children and women.
Delhi Pradesh President Advocate Aslam said, United Nations cannot remain silent and act simply at a stooge of powers that supply arms and ammunition to Israel to kill Palestinians. All justice and peace loving people globally are deeply pained and concerned by news reports of atrocities on Palestinninas. We have noted with horror and shock, the repressive activities of the Israeli Defence Forces. We do not understand why, the United Nations, chooses to remain a mute spectator in the targeting of defenceless civilians?
