MUHAMMADIYAH.OR.ID, YOGYAKARTA – Chairman of Muhammadiyah Syafiq Mughni stated Muhammadiyah supports independence and sovereignty of the State of Palestine.
Being colonized for hundreds of years leads Indonesian people to grasp what happens in Palestine.
“Muhammadiyah is against colonialism and injustice. This movement regrets the U.S. vetoed the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions critical of Israel,” asserted Syafiq on Monday (24/5).
As solidarity with Palestine, Muhammadiyah mobilizes humanitarian aids and moral support and alerts people about views which discredit the Palestinian struggle for independence and justify Israeli political and humanitarian crimes.
“Muhammadiyah urges international community to be responsive to crimes against humanity and human rights violations to create a civilized world,” affirmed Syafiq.
Besides, he requested people, particularly Muhammadiyah people, to pray, donate and engage social media war arguing the Palestine issue all the time until they overlook real and productive actions for people, this nation, and humanity.
