Ayatollah Khamenei Urges Muslims to Slam 'Oppressors' Who Invade Kashmiris

    New Delhi: Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has marked Eid-ul-Fitr prayers by urging the global Islamic community to slam “oppressors who invade” innocent people, including Kashmiris, Yemenis and Bahrainians.

    Leading the prayers in Tehran Great Musalla (Prayer Ground) to mark the end of holy month of Ramzan, Khamenei said Islamic intellectuals across the world should announce their stance on issues like Kashmir in a crystal-clear way, like Iran does.

    The leader of Islamic Revolution was hosting thousands who were observing Fitr prayer when he made these remarks, according to AhlulBayt news agency.

    This is not the first time Khamenei has spoken in support of ‘Independent Kashmir’, but the timing of his latest remarks is both significant and controversial. First, it comes at a time when Kashmir is witnessing a resurgence in violent protests. Second, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is meeting US President Donald Trump in Washington DC on Monday. The US President has been a vocal critic of Iran, and has reversed many of his predecessor’s decisions to bring the Shia nation back from international sanctions slapped over its nuclear plans and support to militant outfits like Hezbollah.

    India-Iran bilateral relationship is supposed to be on a strong footing with trade expanding at a rapid pace and Khamenei’s remarks could act as a dampener.

    The Ayatollah who replaced Ruhollah Khomeini as the supreme leader of Iran reiterated his stand through Twitter.

    “Muslim world should openly support people of #Bahrain, #Kashmir, #Yemen, etc and repudiate oppressors & tyrants who attacked people during #Ramadan,” Khameini said in one of his two tweets.

    “Issues surrounding #Bahrain, #Yemen and various issues in other Muslim countries wound the Islamic body as a whole,” his second tweet said.

    In April 2001, Khamenei said, “We hope that the issue of Kashmir will also be solved in the best way which guarantees the rights and interests of the people living in this region so that they will be provided with peace and comfort.”

    “For the Islamic Republic of Iran, the issue of Kashmir is an issue of humanity and Islam since the Muslim people of this region are clearly subject to oppression and tyranny and we have always expressed to the government of India our abhorrence towards what is being done to the Muslim people of Kashmir and we will continue to express the same feelings in various circles,” he said in September 1994, according his website.

    In 1990, when the Kashmiri insurgency was escalating, Khamenei came out in its support and said, “Look how everywhere in the world where there is a Muslim community, they receive a much harsher treatment compared with others. Kashmir is a contemporary example for this. Muslims there speak out their rights. Anyone who is informed of what Kashmir has gone through, knows what Muslims of Kashmir express is nothing but truth and justice. Those who silence them have an unjust cause. Those who attack them are the ones who are doing the wrong action. Sadly the world watches all this in cold blood.”

    Iran should think twice before they try to provoke us .
    They need us more than the vice versa. All we need to do is to increase the relation with Arabs and Israel.
    Their Persian pride wont work here.

    Wonder if he knows that the shias of J&K support India?

    Well. He is right then. Oppressed muslims should be freed. Starting with the Baloch, Kurds and Arabs of Iran hopefully.

    Iran will lose their handful of friends they have in the World, if they keep doing this.

    The Iranians are suicidal fools who can't tell friend from foe. Guess this is why we have Chabahar on a slow burner, can't truly rely on these crazy bastards.

    That is a great difference between Iranians and Arabs . Arabs wont cheat and backstab you .You can understand their nature at first glance .
    But Persians ,you cant trust them.
    They will backstab and even Pakistanis suffered a lots about it .
    They also have this superiority complex

    This is the problem when you've mullacracy in a country. Khamenei has to make these statements to appease his support base of Islamic hardliners. I doubt ordinary Iranians give a damn about Kashmir. Sometimes GCC states too make statements about Kashmir that ruffle our feathers but we still deal with them based on our own interests. Our dealings with Iran is based on economic with some strategic interests thrown in. It will continue that way, we don't want those brotherly relations nonsense with either Iranians or Arabs. And keeping Iran in check we can count on the Israelis.


    Now cue the monkey dance those idiots across the border will do after they read Khamenei's statement.

    an extremely stupid statement. We have to talk to the Khomeini and re-establish our good relationship with them. Iran and Saudi have always been great allies of India. On one thing they both agree- whenever kicking pakistan in the nuts for taking a stand against India is concerned they always work together. Some random statements every now and then have been made against India but on ground they, along with UAE have been rock solid friends of India. It's not Iran, it's you who can't tell friend from foe.

    None of this is borne out by fact, stick to trolling, it seems to be the only thing you're any good at.
