Iranís Supreme Leader Calls For Support For Kashmiris


This might appear like one huge jolt out of the blue. While India has been constantly working at increasing its proximity to Iran through various political and economic gestures, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei raked up the Kashmir issue.

Speaking after the conclusion of Eid ul-Fitr prayers in Tehran, Supreme Leader Khamenei reportedly said that the Islamic world must condemn the atrocities on Muslims by “oppressors”.

He added that the Islamic nations must help “oppressed nations” such as “Bahrain and Kashmir”.

“The same is true for the people of Bahrain and Kashmir: Our people can back this great movement within the World of Islam,” he said

{ Muslim world should openly support people of ,, etc and repudiate oppressors& tyrants who attacked ppl in .}


While the Ayatollah’s statement has rattled the media back home in India, the Indian government is silent on it.

The Iranian Supreme Leader has enough influence over the people and the government of Iran. So not only was his raising the Kashmir issue on such an occasion concerning in itself, calling the Indian territory an “oppressed nation” might give the Separatists in Kashmir the fodder they need.

Khamenei had visited Kashmir between late 1980 and early 1981, couple of years after the Iranian Revolution. According to one account, Khamenei delivered a speech in a Sunni mosque which ended the discord between Shias and Sunnis in Kashmir.
