The Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Shiites has directed members to observe this year’s Quds Day expected to hold today by embarking on a peaceful procession across all states in the country.

According to the group, the celebration is open to both Muslims and non Muslims and was expected to be a rallying point of condemning the Israelis atrocities against the Palestine.

Spokesman of the Shiites, Mallam Ibrahim Musa in a statement yesterday, said: “The IMN hereby calls on all people of conscience to join in commemorating this annual event by lending a voice to the oppressed people of Palestine, while condemning the Israeli atrocities on them.’’

“The Quds Day is scheduled to take place in over 24 cities across the country, it is commemorated based on conscience and not only on religious consideration as victims of Zionism and illegal occupation of Palestine include Muslims and Christians alike.”

“Moreover pro-Palestinian protest marches such as this are organized in all parts of the world including Europe and America to mark the International Quds Day.

“We will also like to seize this opportunity to call on the Nigerian government to immediately and unconditionally release the revered leader of the IMN, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, who has been most active in this course of struggle for humanity and who in the past lost his children in the cause of this struggle for Palestinian freedom.”
