ISLAMABAD—Speakers representing journalist bodies and civil society on Tuesday strongly condemned Israeli terrorism and atrocities against Palestinians and bombing on residential centres and media houses.
The Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) had asked its units to hold protest rallies across the country.
The speakers urged the international community and United Nations to intervene to stop Israeli aggression and terrorism against Palestinians immediately.
Protest rallies were arranged by all the unions of journalists (UJs) in Islamabad, Peshawar, Quetta, Lahore, Faisalabad, Bahawalpur, Sukkur, Abbottabad, Rahim Yar Khan, Gujranwala, and Multan.
Journalists, representatives of civil society, lawyers, and people from different walks of life termed Israeli brutalities as inhuman and act of barbarism and terrorism.
“Condemnation resolutions are not enough and will not serve the purpose. The Muslim world must pressure Israel to stop violence against innocent civilians in Palestine,” PFUJ President Shahzada Zulfiqar said while addressing a rally in Quetta.
He condemned the Israeli bombing and airstrikes on a building housing media outlets in Gaza. “It was shocking that even a building that was housing international and local media outlets was not spared and was demolished,” Zulfiqar said.
Afzal Butt, a former president of PFUJ, President National Press Club Shakeel Anjum, Secretary Anwar Raza, Senior Vice President PFUJ Salim Shahid, and others urged the international community, UN, and human rights activists to play their role in defusing tension in Palestine and occupied Kashmir so that human miseries in these flashpoints could be reduced.
