Israel attack on Palestine : India must summon Israeli ambassador to convey feelings of millions of Indians  


By Special Correspondent

New Delhi:  As Israel’s brutal aggression continued  against unarmed Palestinians in occupied Gaza strip and Jerusalem, about 100 Indian civil society groups and prominent individuals including MPs, journalists and activists on Wednesday said India and the world must not remain silent spectators. They called upon the government of India to summon the Israeli envoy and convey the feelings of millions of peace and justice loving citizens of this country. They also demanded immediate halt to inhuman and uncivilised actions of the Zionist entity.  They have issued a declaration, expressing solidarity with the Palestinian people’s resistance against Israel’s annexation plan and crimes against humanity.


They have demanded from the government of India to summon the Israeli envoy and convey the feelings of millions of citizens. They have also urged the government to use its good offices in pressurizing the Israeli government to immediately halt its violent and outrageous actions against the Palestinians.

Jointly undersigned by civil society organizations and individuals of India


  • This declaration is intended to express the mind-numbing pain currently being felt by all the justice and peace loving people of India, due to the outrageous, inhuman and uncivilized actions of the Israeli regime against the Palestinians. The enforced displacement of the Palestinians from their homes in Sheikh Jarrahneighborhood and other localities to enable settler colonialism and the storming of Al Aqsa mosque by the Israeli police during the auspicious month of Ramadan and the resultant injuries to the scores of peaceful worshippers has sent waves of shock and trauma in the Muslim communities and the whole civilized world.
  • The signatories of this declaration believe that the actions of Israeli regime constitute racism and apartheid. Such actions find backing neither from the international laws nor the universal values of a civilized society. Except for the racist laws which the Israeli regime takes pride in, no human society can condone such barbaric and inhuman deeds. Especially, the provocation by armed forces leading to violence, chaos and repression of the occupied population, during the times of a pandemic is a serious crime against humanity. Hence, it is incumbent upon the United Nations, International Court of Justice, Justice loving countries of the world, Human Rights Organizations, NGOs, media houses, activists etc to take cognizance of the situation and exert maximum pressure to make the Israeli regime mend its ways.
  • The sanctity of Masjid Al Aqsa, the third holiest mosque in Islam, knows no bounds in the hearts of the believers. Any irresponsible action violating the sanctity of the site shall have a global repercussion. Hence, the government of Israel must be well cautious to not attempt any such mis-adventure.
  • The signatories of this declaration call upon the government of India to summon the Israeli envoy and convey the feelings of millions of peace and justice loving citizens of this country. The government of India is requested to use its good offices in pressurizing the Israeli government to immediately halt its violent and outrageous actions against the Palestinians.
  • The signatories of this declaration call upon the Israeli government to immediately halt its inhuman and racist policies by restoring the sanctity of Masjid Al Aqsa and ordering to stop the evictions of Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah and elsewhere.
  • This declaration calls for immediate ceasefire and restoration of peace.

  1. We condemn killing of any innocent human being. But we can’t blame only Israel for recent violence because Hamas has first started it & launched rockets. In such cases Israel has full rights of self defense. Hence, there is no need to summon Israel ambassador. Instead OIC should appeal Hamas to stop such violence.

  2. all are usual suspects….Muslims and anti nationals like Apporvanand and John Dayal, Arundhati type. We reject their protest with disdain that they all deserve.
