The Pakistani politician said the Israeli regime, with the support of the United States and the West, has committed horrific crimes against the oppressed people of Palestine and everyone was silent about these crimes, but it was the Islamic Republic of Iran that, always, rushed to the aid of the oppressed Palestinians.
Mohammad Afzal Haidri Secretary General of Association of Shiite Seminaries of Pakistan also described Imam Khomeini as a high-ranking Islamic and revolutionary figure and said his thoughts and ideas are the source of revival of Islam and religious and political awakening of Muslims.

He added Imam Khomeini declared last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as International Day of Quds to mobilize the entire Islamic world to support the Palestinian people because the issue of Palestine and Quds is not limited to one region or religion or race.
He added the occupying regime of Quds considered itself invincible, but now it is no longer able to fight due to internal problems, and this shows that the liberation of Quds and the destruction of the Zionists is imminent.

They said Imam Khomeini, with his tireless efforts, led the unique Islamic revolution and raised not only the Iranian nation but all Muslims in the world.
