Palestinian President Abbas asks Modi to help bring peace to Middle East



Palestinian President Abbas asks Modi to help bring peace to Middle East

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]By Abu Turab

Visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has sought India’s help in resolving the Palestinian dispute with Israel.

Speaking at the India Islamic Cultural Centre on Monday, he said, “We know very well that India has very good relations with Palestine and Israel, so India can play a very important role in bringing peace in the region.” He said that during his meeting with President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he will ask them to use their good offices to bring peace between the two countries.

In his first public event during his ongoing four-day India visit, Abbas said that a solution to Palestine’s dispute with Israel is essential for fighting terrorism in the region and added that he will seek Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s help in this regard.

The Palestinian president’s remark comes ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Israel in July. President Abbas, while describing his recent diplomatic moves, said he had a very successful meeting with US President Donald Trump last month and his German and Russian counterparts Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Vladimir Putin, respectively and discussed the issue. Abbas arrived in New Delhi from Moscow.

He said that he was working for the two-state solution to the problem. “What we are trying to is to implement the two-state solution based on the border of June 1967; to establish a sovereign, independent state of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital living in security and peace side by side with the state of Israel.”

“So, achieving justice is the basis for the success in fighting terrorism being practiced by terrorist groups such as ISIS and other extremist groups in the region,” Abbas said. He said that Palestine was ready to make peace and hoped for a response from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Earlier, while welcoming the Palestinian president, Sirajuddin Qureshi, president of India Islamic Cultural Centre, recalled Mahatma Gandhi’s words “Palestine belongs to Arabs, in the same sense that England belongs to English or France to the French.” He said it was evident that our “principled” support to the Palestinian cause is rooted in our freedom struggle.

While reminding the gathering of his association with the Palestinian cause throughout his political career, especially as cabinet minister in several Congress governments, Ghulam Nabi Azad, now Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, reiterated his party’s support to the Palestinian cause.  Janata Dal United president Sharad Yadav said Indians would always stand in support with the Palestinian people.

Manipur Governor Najma Heptullah fondly recalled her memories of late Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) leader Yasser Arafat. She disclosed that she played an instrumental role in convincing the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to invite the PLO chief. She said she had also addressed the Israeli Knesset and the Palestinian Parliament when she headed the Inter Parliamentary Union.

President Abbas arrived in India on Sunday on a four-day visit to India, his fifth to India and the third state visit after assuming the presidency in 2005.  On Tuesday, apart from his talks with PM Modi, he will call on President Pranab Mukherjee.  He will meet Vice President Hamid Ansari and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

A suicide bombing at a mosque in Pakistan’s Peshawar city on Monday left at least 28 people dead and left another150 wounded, reports said.



suicide bombing at a mosque in Pakistan

A suicide bombing at a mosque in Pakistan’s Peshawar city on Monday left at least 46 people dead and left another 147 wounded, reports said.

As per reports, the attack took place when worshippers gathered inside were offering afternoon prayers in the mosque in the northwestern city, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, bordered by Afghanistan.

Police officials said a suicide bomber walked into the mosque where over 260 people were offering afternoon prayers and detonated his explosive vest causing a massive explosion. They said the roof of the mosque collapsed due to the blast and caved in burying many people underneath the debris.

Eyewitnesses said they saw blood-soaked survivors limping away from the blast site.

Reports quoted a police officer, Meena Gul, who survived the blast, as saying that he was inside the mosque when the blast occurred but could not provide details on the number of injured and dead in the attack.

Gul said he was disoriented and all he could hear was cries and screams after the bombing.

Officials said the wounded are being rushed to local medical facilities where many are stated to be in critical condition, raising fears that the death toll may rise.

No terrorist group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack; however, officials suspect this has all the markings of being the handiwork of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), a close ally of the Afghan Taliban, who seized power in neighboring Afghanistan in August 2021 as U.S. and NATO troops were in the final stages of their pullout from the country after 20 years of war.

In March 2022, an Islamic State suicide bombing left 64 people dead at a minority Shiite mosque in Peshawar, the country’s deadliest terror attack since 2018.
