KANGAR Feb 14 (Bernama) -- Al-Aqsa Mosque Iman Sheikh Dr Ekremah Sai'd Sabri praises Malaysia's role in championing the lot of Palestine on the world stage in his speech at the 'Prihatin Al-Quds 2018' programme at the Tuanku Syed Putra Mosque, here last night.
He said, as a representative of the people of Palestine, he highly lauded the concern shown to his country and appreciated Malaysia's stand in consistently supporting the struggle of the people of Palestine.
He said Palestine was a blessed soil and as such it was the duty of all Muslims to defend it.
He said it was the dream of the Israeli soldiers to conquer the Al-Aqsa Mosque which could accommodate up to half-a-million pilgrims at a time, but due to the fortitude of the people of Palestine in defending it since 1967, they have failed to do so.
Also present at the programme were the Raja Muda of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail and the Raja Puan Muda, Tuanku Hajah Lailatul Shahreen Akashah Khalil.....
