For the First Time in Seven Years, Ayatollah Khamenei Rakes Up Kashmir

SHARE:

For the first time in seven years, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, has reportedly mentioned Kashmir, equating the situation in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir with that of Yemen and Bahrain as requiring the support of “all Muslim nations”.

On one of Khamenei’s official websites, a news item was posted on June 26 with the headline, “Everyone should openly support people of Yemen, Bahrain and Kashmir: Ayatollah Khamenei”.

A similar message was posted on a Twitter account that is believed to be the Iranian supreme leader’s even though it has not been officially verified by the popular social media site.




The post on his official website was a report on the speech of the supreme leader on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.

It quoted Ayatollah Khamenei as saying that Islamic nations are covered in “wounds”, which should require a clear stance from the Muslim world.

“The World of Islam should explicitly support the people of Yemen, and express their disdain against the oppressors who’ve attacked the people in such horrible ways during the month of Ramadan,” Khamenei stated.

His website then said that just like Yemen, other conflicts of “oppressed nations” should get open support. “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.

In Yemen and Bahrain, Iran has been accused of direct involvement by backing the Houthis and the Shia majority activists, respectively, against the government in both countries..

For the past seven years, Iranian establishment figures have not made direct public references to Kashmir in this manner.

Last year, Khamenei mentioned Kashmir in a conversation with the visiting Slovenian president, Borut Pahor, but only in the context of showing the West’s interest in keeping ‘wounds’ open: “On the basis of the first viewpoint, the Americans do not have a plan for uprooting Daesh. Like the English who have kept the wound of Kashmir open since the era of colonialism in the Indian subcontinent and which has resulted in two neighbouring countries, India and Pakistan, to have discord on this matter until the present time, the Americans too want to act on the issue of Daesh in a way that this problem continues to exist in Iraq without ever being resolved,” he said on Nov 22, 2016.
