Zariya (IP) — Muhammad Isa Ahmad, a prominent Nigerian human rights activist, Islamic scholar, and academic hailing from Zariya town in Kaduna State, has issued a compelling call for Africans and global citizens to join this year's annual Quds Day protests.

Iran PressAfrica: The purpose is to demonstrate solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine and advocate for the liberation of the Al Aqsa holy mosque from the Zionist regime.

In an exclusive interview with Iran Press, Muhammad Isa Ahmad, who also serves as a senior lecturer at Nigeria's Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, underscored the significance of Quds Day. He emphasized that the tradition of marches and conferences on this day was initiated by the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini, in 1979. His call for humanity to unite in support of the Palestinian cause has resonated globally.

"The activities on this particular day, including rallies and symposiums, have raised awareness about the injustices inflicted by the Zionists and their allies who seek to displace the Palestinian people from their homeland—a fate that, by the grace of God, will never come to pass," Muhammad Isa Ahmad stated.

Moreover, the Islamic scholar lauded Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the leader of the Islamic Revolution, for steadfastly following Ayatollah Khomeini's path toward achieving Palestinian liberation.

"Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has continued along this crucial path, reiterating his call for people to rally in support of the Palestinian cause. This unwavering commitment has played a pivotal role in advancing the Palestinian struggle, as evidenced by rallies held across different nations worldwide," he added.

With this year's Quds Day coinciding with the last Friday of Ramadan, Muhammad Isa Ahmad issued a fervent appeal to the people of Africa and all corners of the globe to unite and demonstrate their solidarity with Palestine.

"The daily atrocities endured by the Palestinian people demand our collective action. Rarely does a day pass without bloodshed among Palestinians. We urge everyone to join in rallying for the Palestinian cause," Muhammad Isa Ahmad concluded passionately.
