Jammu, November 28 | The Indo-Palestine Friendship Society in cooperation with National Panthers Party and other revolutionary organizations held a Solidarity Day with the people of Palestine and congratulated them on their National Day which was observed on November 15, 2019, in several places in India under the auspices of Indo-Palestine Friendship Society and National Panthers Party.
Addressing a meeting of lawyers, media persons, ex-servicemen and political workers, Prof. Bhim Singh, Chairman of Indo-Palestine Friendship Society expressed full solidarity and support with the struggling people of Palestine who have been fighting/struggling since 1948 against the United Nations Resolution no.181 which proposed division of Palestine in 1948 thus creating a State of Israel which cannot be defined as a State even today for it has neither defined territory, nor geography and even its population is scattered all over the world.
Prof. Bhim Singh congratulated Pt. Nehru, Nasser and President Titto who created Non-Alignment Movement in 1956 and disagreed with the division of Palestine and refused to recognize the so-called State of Israel. It was India which has been supporting the Palestinian Movement PLO under the leadership of Yasir Arafat from the beginning to implement Resolutions 242, 338 and others passed by United Nations asking Israel to withdraw from the Palestinian Territory and from other Arab territories.
The State Legal Aid Committee, Executive Chairman who is also Chief Patron of National Panthers Party wrote a book which was published by the State of Kuwait in 1970 on the subject ‘Legality of State of Israel’, which clearly supported the cause of the Palestinian and emphasized for the implementation of UN Resolutions by the Big Powers. Prof. Bhim Singh criticized Anglo-American Bloc which has floated the State of Israel by fraud on International Law and tried to demolish the State of Palestine.
Prof. Bhim Singh expressed gratitude on behalf of the people of the world supporting the State of Palestine and demanding UNO to implement United Nations Resolutions of 1967 & 1968 for complete statehood to Palestine. He congratulated Govt. of India and its leadership, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru and all others who supported Palestine for mobilizing entire NAM movement in support of State of Palestine.
Addressing distinguished gathering at Jammu (J&K) this afternoon, Prof. Bhim Singh reminded the world about the failure of the Security Council of the United Nations to implement its own decision vis-à-vis Palestine. He also regretted that the Govt. of India at present has failed to carry on India’s mission on Palestine in support of the people of Palestine. It was the BJP government, unfortunately, which got missiles purchased from Israel for India and it was first Prime Minister of India who visited Israel ignoring India’s oldest friend, Palestine.
