Srinagar: Strongly condemning the blast inside a mosque in Pakistan yesterday and killing of Gaza residents in Palestine, chairman of the breakaway faction of Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Shah Geelani today asked Muslims across the globe to leave their differences and unite against state terrorism. 'The killings of Muslims in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan and Kashmir is going on at the hands of enemy powers, the same is being done in Pakistan with the help of enemies of Islam, Geelani, who is also a member of international contact group of Islamic countries,' he said in a statement here today. Reacting to the bomb blast inside a mosque in Pakistan yesterday, Geelani said those who call themselves as Muslims and indulge in violence threatening the life and property of fellow Muslims cannot be the well wishers of Muslim Ummah. These people are not only harming Islam but their activities has also threatened the sovereignty of Pakistan..., he said adding Muslims across the world had set up their eyes towards Pakistan and therefore there should be no scope for sectarian, linguistic, land and communal bias in the country. The hardline leader said time has come when the Muslims across the globe should leave their differences and get united against the state terrorism unleashed by enemy powers. (PTI)
