FORMER Leader of Pakistan's Jamaat-e-Islami Party Qazi Hussain Ahmad called on all the world Muslims to support Iran against the newly approved UN Security Council sanctions resolution on Tehran's peaceful nuclear program.
"All Muslims in the world should voice their loud support for Iran against the anti-Iranian sanctions approved by the UN Security Council," Hussein Ahmad told FNA on Wednesday.
The UN last week imposed a fourth set of sanctions against Tehran in violation of the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) which entitle every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment.
The UN measure was adopted after Tehran dismissed West's demands for a suspension of its uranium enrichment activities as politically tainted and illogical. Tehran says that sanctions and pressures merely consolidate Iranians' national resolve to continue nuclear progress.
Elsewhere, Hussain Ahmad condemned the Zionist regime for its crimes against Muslims, specially the regime's recent attack on an aid convoy sailing towards Gaza and the massacre of 20 human rights activists in international waters.
Tel Aviv on Monday approved an internal inquiry into the legal aspects of Israel's deadly May 31 onslaught on Gaza Freedom Flotilla.
Despite international demands for impartiality, the Israeli investigation panel includes no more than two foreign observers, who have no say on the proceedings and conclusions of the commission.
The former leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami party questioned the necessity for the formation of such a fact-finding committee, and asked, "What is the reason behind forming a probe committee while it is obvious that the convoy was carrying humanitarian aids and was in international waters when it was attacked?"
Palestinians have also dismissed Israel's probe of its own attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla as "misleading" and aimed at evading an international investigation.
Israel is seeking to "mislead and deceive the world public opinion by avoiding international demands for an independent commission," Palestine's democratically elected Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said on Tuesday.
"The terrorist cannot investigate himself," he added.
