Tehran:Prominent Iranian Sunni Clerif and a Sunni member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts condemned the recent killings of Muslims in the Indian-administered part of Kashmir and said Islamic nations have a duty to support Muslims in the restive region.

Speaking to the Tasnim News Molavi Ahmad Salami pointed to the systematic killing of Muslims at the hands of Indian troops in Kashmir, saying it is an old issue that resembles the issue of Palestine.

“Muslims have a shared responsibility and duty regarding Kashmir and other issues of the Muslim world,” he stated.

He further emphasized that while interference in other countries’ internal affairs is not correct, all countries, Islamic ones in particular, share a duty to politically support Kashmiri Muslims.
