Thousands of people in the Indian-controlled Kashmir took to the streets in support of the Palestinian people marking the Quds International Day.
People marched in different parts of the region holding banners expressing solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian and denouncing Israel’s occupation.
People gathered in mosques for congregation prayers and took to the streets immediately after prayers to mark the occasion initiated by the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran Imam Khomeini in 1979.
The International Quds Day is an annual event during which demonstrators express their solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposition to the occupation of the Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime of Israel.
The day is seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who officially declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day back in 1979. It falls on Friday, April 29, this year.
