Six months have now gone by since Nigerian Islamic Liberationist hero Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky’s residence was savagely raided and hundreds (possibly thousands) of his followers were slaughtered in the Zaria Massacre by the US-Zionist-Saudi-backed Nigerian army, all before he was illegally detained on nonsensical charges and thrown into one of Imperialist-stooge Muhammadu Buhari’s dark dungeons where he remains up until this moment. It’s been 180 days and all the usual “defenders of humanity”, the very same liberals and “leftists” who are SO quick to line up behind NATO’S “regime change” wars in Libya, Syria and Ukraine, i.e. the NGO-Human-Rights-Industrial-Complex and the increasingly cowardly and Judaized “Palestine Solidarity Movement”, remain incognito on Zakzaky, Africa’s greatest champion of the Palestinian cause and among the leading revolutionaries in the world.
One group who is not silent however is the beautiful and militant people of occupied Kashmir, who held a huge rally for the Sheikh this past Jummah.
The Kashmiris, bless their hearts and souls, truly are the sweetest, humblest, sincerest people, who, as bonafide Moustazafeen, have ALWAYS stood with Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Bahrain in the face of World Zionism, not to mention Ayatollah Nimr al-Nimr (R.A.) before and after his martyrdom. Indeed, even as they live under a barbaric military occupation at the hands of the ‘Israeli’-aligned, ‘Israeli’-armed, ‘Israeli’-trained Hindutvadi military, enduring horrors that nobody on Earth but the Palestinian people themselves have to deal with, and even as their friends and family are brutally targeted by RSS-VHP-BJP thugs in India while they’re studying at university, they still marched through the streets of Srinagar with ferocity for Zakzaky as if he was one of their own. And spiritually speaking, he indubitably is.
Because like the Sheikh, the Shi’a of occupied Kashmir as well as many Sunnis and Sufis are the sons of Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.), and their Anti-Zionism bonds them together with a Husseini glue that transcends ethnic and national boundaries. The world may have abandoned Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, but the Kashmiris have not. And during a time of so much apathy in the Muslim world thanks to Saudi petrodollars and Takfiri sympathizing, the People of the Vale are once again giving us a lesson in TRUE solidarity, TRUE steadfastness, TRUE resistance and TRUE Islam, masha’ALLAH. May the Sheikh be freed from his hell soon and may the Kashmiris achieve Azadi from their Hindu supremacist tormentors in our lifetime. #FreeZakzaky #LongLiveZakzaky #FreeKashmir #LongLiveTheKashmiriPeople
