The Ulama Forum in Nigeria has condemned the recent brutal massacre of innocent lives in Palestine by the Zionist state of Israel.
The Forum, based in Kano, expressed outrage at the ongoing illegal occupation and usurpation of Palestinian lands, calling on global institutions including the United Nations, the Organisation of Islamic Conference, and the World Islamic League to intervene and put a permanent halt to the barbaric attacks on defenceless civilians.
The Ulama Forum highlighted the hypocrisy of powerful nations that condemned certain conflicts while endorsing Israeli atrocities.
It noted the urgent need for Arab and Middle Eastern countries to unite against Zionist brutality, cautioning against any form of appeasement with Israel, which it deemed to be sacrificing the Palestinian cause.
The Forum urged Muslim countries to impose economic sanctions on Israel and rally international support for the victims of Israeli attacks.
Commending countries like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Jordan, and Kuwait for their stern condemnations of Israel’s actions, the Ulama Forum called on Muslims and peace-loving people worldwide to unite in condemning the Zionist provocations and cruelty against the oppressed people of Palestine.
It emphasised the importance of working towards a just, peaceful, and progressive world order.
