akistan’s Prime Minister, Imran Khan on Friday said that it is the voice of the thousands of people across the world that will turn the tide in the Palestinian crisis.
“We now have the power of the social media. The public opinion is shifting [in favour of Palestinians],” he as per Geo News said, in a video message broadcast on television.
“I was at Masjid-e-Nabvi when I found out that when people were praying on the night of the 27th [of Ramadan, at Al-Aqsa mosque], the Israeli police attacked them,” said the prime minister, adding that he also learnt, regrettably, of how Palestinians are being evicted from their homes.
“When I came to Pakistan, I also spoke to King Salman about the oppression Palestinians are facing and about what happened at Al-Aqsa, and how we need to raise our voices for this.
He said that he then spoke to Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and told him the entire Muslim world, and all those countries that advocate for justice, stand with the Palestinians.
“A big reason for this is social media. If the main media censors it, social media is now a force to be reckoned with. And with this I see that the world’s public opinion is shifting,” he said.
