Muslim Scholars call for worldwide protests for Aleppo

September 28, 2016

The Qatar-based International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) has called on Muslim and Arab nations and on all the “free peoples” to launch a worldwide day of protests on Friday under the slogan #BeAngryForAleppo.

Secretary-General Sheikh Ali Qaradaghi said yesterday that the aim of this campaign is to support the city of Aleppo, which is being “wiped off at the hands of the fascist Syrian regime and its allies in front of the world”, as UN meetings yield no results.

Qaradaghi also called on scholars, preachers and imams to devote Friday’s sermon to addressing Aleppo and its struggle and resolve, and the role that the world should play to support the war-torn city.

He stressed that scholars have to be at the frontline of the angry masses and put pressure to end the injustice and tyranny in Syria and other war-torn countries.

Qaradaghi called on the international community to stop their double standards, stop backing President Bashar Al-Assad, his regime and his allies and to support the Syrian people in their struggle for liberation.
