The issue of Kashmir is an issue of humanity: Ayatollah Khamenei

Look how everywhere in the world where there is a Muslim community, they receive a much harsher treatment compared with others. Kashmir is a contemporary example for this. Muslims there speak out their rights. Anyone who is informed of what Kashmir has gone through, knows what Muslims of Kashmir express is nothing but truth and justice. Those who silence them have an unjust cause. Those who attack them are the ones who are doing the wrong action. Sadly the world watches all this in cold blood. 

~Ayatollah Khamenei, May 25, 1990

 

For the Islamic Republic of Iran, the issue of Kashmir is an issue of humanity and Islam since the Muslim people of this region are clearly subject to oppression and tyranny and we have always expressed to the government of India our abhorance towards what is being done to the Muslim people of Kashmir and we will continue to express the same feelings in various circles.

~Ayatollah Khamenei, September 11, 1994

 

We hope that the issue of Kashmir will also be solved in the best way which guarantees the rights and interests of the people living in this region so that they will be provided with peace and comfort.

~Ayatollah Khamenei, April 12, 2001

    It was good to see Mr Khamenei have had some opinion on Kashmir. I have to ask something to him; does he have any feeling for Kashmiri Hindu Pundits, who were the first ever target of this ongoing violence. Does Kashmir belongs only to Muslims and not to hindus who are ancient inhabitants of this land? Who, in late 1980s and early 90s, were targated for being non-muslim. Whose Women were raped in thousands in numbers, who were killed in thousands in numbers......and finally were forced to leave muslim majority state. About 600000 hindu pundits decided to leave their ancestors land in kashmir after facing harsh treatment by muslims of kashmir. Were these hindus not human beings ? Would he speak a single word for them ? if not, he has no right to speak on human rights.

    I am from kashmir & i know the situation of kashmir at some length. The kashmiri muslim especially sunni community fight against india beacuse they want to dominate the muslims [shia] & want to spread the terrorism in kashmir. If they will be free from india obivously they will adopt the govt.of pakistan. Now if are students beacuse of india , we will alter the tool of terrorism beacuse of pakistan. It is right that we are in oppression at the hands of india , but they are not as brutal as pakistan.,

    I am kashmiri as for your kind information kashmiri pandits were kicked out by no one they them selves left kashmir on the virdict of indian governor mr jagmohan das to make open killing and blood shed in kashmir . And kashmiri pandits are opressed by indian govt they put them in camps ! Is this possible 600000 pandits cant be rehibilitated in one billion hindu contry !!!
  • 2016-04-18 13:13
    Bro imtiyaz when you think small and make big issue just sectrian issue out come would be as you said . First kashmiri issue has nothing to do shia sunni issue its well know shia and sunni of kashmir dont fight they live side by side as brothers . Second what you call terror its your way of seen . Its indian agencies who are killing shia in pakistan ,and when indian army open fire they dont see is the person shia or sunni . Both shia and sunni gave blood for freedom cause .
  • 2016-04-18 15:11
    shia should understand the situation on Kashmir it is not fact they say Indian don't kill them but it is matter of concern we Muslims need to Unite to self determine that why is freedom been separated from us
  • 2016-04-18 16:58

  • 2016-04-19 03:43

  • 2016-04-24 13:23

  • 2016-05-24 10:01
    After reading all of these...one thing came into my mind...if Khumaini speak or spoken abt kashmir or palestine only on the basis of that any mightier authority is gonna to oppress the muslims of there or occupied it...Why dont he speak about Balochistan or ugyurs in China? Nd what has been done for Parsis who left Iran after atrocities against them!!! Pls broaden your views becoz we should encourage coexistence and not bais statement!!!
  • 2016-07-02 11:11
    @imtiyaz ... U r r8t to some extend .... Most of the people of Kashmir want to accede with Pakistan even some shias who were born before 1989 but the truth is that Kashmir is at the brink of intellectual rev. Now educated peoples have figure out that Pakistan is worst country among saarc countries......and one thing more if Kashmir will get freedom Pakistan will show no interest then it's now causing trouble to India...........I have seen 12 years boy from nishat was shot dead without any reason.... #can't forget everything.

    Salam brother's.bro @sumit imam khamanie had talked about kashmir Muslims becoz now a days Muslims r been killed in the whole world... that's y he has stressed only about Muslim's, if u vil study all over lectures of Imam khamanai he always toks abt whole humanity specially about the oppressed ppl of the world whether Muslim or non Muslims,n the pundit brother's r always welcome bk by their kashmiri brother's.@imtiyaz bro. Shias n sunnis are two branches of same tree. The difference we r making among shia or sunnis is just lack of islamic teachings n real meaning if Islam.

    Every one want Freedom but no one want piece . I know Kashmir I have spent my half of the life with Kashmiri, every one knows who does what . both India and Pakistan want kasmir for their strategic benift. No one borther about the people of kasmir . Tell me except forcing young youth of kasmir to this kind of activity which country has come forward to encourage the kasmir yourh to for their higher studies or doing great for kasmir rather then putting in such situations,how much benift or fecility you give to kasmir.it just nothing but all benefit game it's kasmir and his people suffers ........,.

    @Sumit As i know, Ayatollah Khamenei does support any oppressed...and will stand in front of any oppressor... like supporting Palestinians-and most of them are not Shia- and criticizing America because of bombing Hiroshima- while they are not Muslem...

    practically,iran never supported the kashmiri struggle for self determination,foreign policy of iran is more in sync with that of india.

    Dear brothers' When I am writing on the issue of Kashmir,Kashmir is once again boiling, near about 60 persons have lost their lives and the government of India is behaving as such nothing has happened. They have banned all the sources by which we can raise our voice. They are doing all what they can do to suppress the people of Kashmir. Dear brothers all the inhabitants of Kashmir suffer whether it is shia , Sunni, sikh or pandith. And according to my opinion we all should unite so that we familiarise the commen people of india and other countries about the real ground situation of Kashmir.

  • Thanks syed ali great leader of humanity i love u from bottom of the heart

    Unfortunately, majority of the people out there are head down lovers of Pakistan. As soon as the Kashmiri flag replaces Pakistani flag and Isis flags, I will be the first person marching down the roads of freedom. At this point in time, I feel more free out of Kashmir.

    These comments are from 1990s, I doubt Agha will speak same words today because Pakistan and Hurriyat has been exposed to the whole world now.

    Kashmir want independence from India...
  • 2016-09-15 19:40
    @ Sumit I am sure if that had happened ayatollah Khamenei would have addressed it. Can you provide evidence to substantiate your claims? I too have never heard of the Hindu population being subjected to any violence on a scale as you describe it by the kashmiri muslims
  • 2017-02-21 12:59
    This is not good to see that some people saying shia of Kashmir support India ....I am a Kashmiri shia and we support Freedom , we fight for Freedom and by God's will we'll achieve Freedom. Shia-Sunni stand united in Kashmir and the elements trying to divide kashmiri muslims are the agents of India and Pakistan .Trying to flare kashmiris and make them fight with each other . My sunni brothers in kashmir stand aside us everytime We may debate religous issues but we dont fight each other ...we stand united on the political issue of Freedom of Kashmir
  • 2017-04-15 17:17
    I only know that is freedom our right and what we have to do now in our kashmir.according to stution we have to achieve freedom from India and the kashmiri people says that (shia muslim) is sporting the indiary no it is wrong we are also fight for freedom and I believe one day we will seccoused in our goal. I pray for that thanks
  • 2017-04-18 21:56
    Dont make us divide we the dhai and sunnis are the two arms of islam Plz for god sake dont divide us We are fighting fir our right
  • 2017-04-20 09:05
    Yes brothers these r agencies whome make us divide in the Shia Sunni but they don't know we are the two arms of Islam so we have to b careful in this situation because if they create this Situation then we should our tehreekh will b destroyed be carefull
