The Israeli Security Forces’ attack on innocent Palestinian worshippers in the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem has created an uproar on social media. The holy city is home to sacred sites for Jews, Muslims and Christians and has been engulfed in violence over the last three days.
Unseen, raw footage of the bone-chilling violence being carried out on the Palestinians has garnered attention from people all over the world, however the major news channels around the globe choose to call the attack a conflict instead of what it truly is, terrorism. Firing with armed weapons at harmless people in their place of worship is highly unacceptable on humanitarian grounds above all.
The Israeli Police attacked the protestors rallying against the forced explusion of many Palestinian families from the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrar. The Palestinians had gathered at the holy mosque, Al-Aqsa to protest over the Sheikh Jarrah expulsions going on.
Pakistani celebrities have also taken to various social media handles and raised their voice for the people of Palestine, using the #freePalestine for those who are facing an unimaginable amount of violence in their own homes and places of worship. Ahsan Khan, Rabia Butt, Mashal Khan, Jenaan Hussain, Feroze Khan and Anam Tanveer are some of our stars who have spoken up on their social media handles.
Here’s what Pakistani Celebrities have to say about the ongoing attacks on Palestine:
