LAHORE: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Siraj-ul -Haq, has expressed deep concern over US President Trump’s designs to accept Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and has warned that the move could plunge the entire world into flames of war.
In a statement here on Wednesday, he said that the US was playing with fire. He said that in the eyes of the Muslims, Jerusalem was the most sacred place next to Makkah and Madina and they had deep love and respect for the ancient city. He said that any US step in this direction would have serious consequences.
JI chief appreciated announcements by Turkish President Recep Tayyep Erodgan and Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas rejecting the US decision and said that none of the Muslim rulers could support Trumps’ plan.
He urged the world community and justice loving western and European states to condemn Trump’s plan giving him a clear message that such a decision could not be supported. He called upon the Muslim world, especially the Pakistan government to strongly condemn Trump’s designs at official level and take all possible measures at international level to foil such a move.
