Millions Respond to Imam Khomeini's Call on Quds Day

Millions of people across the world have responded to the founder of Islamic Republic's call by staging rallies and declaring support for the oppressed nation of Palestine on the International Quds Day.

Millions of people in Iran and around the world marked International Quds Day and they called for the liberation of the holy sites. Activists and oppressed people in different parts of the world have marked the International Quds Day, with mass rallies for the liberation of Palestine.

The great Imam called for the one-billion Muslims and oppressed nations to get unite against aggressions of Zionism and colonial powers and throw their weight behind the nation of Palestine.

These rallies have left great positive political impact, raised awareness about the sufferings of Palestinian people, and made the nations aware of the atrocities being committed by the Zionist regime and its backers.

The occasion is observed each year on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan. The day was designated by the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, over three decades ago as the Quds Day.

Back then, the great Imam called on all Muslims and non-Muslims across the world to turn out in a show of solidarity with the Palestinian people and in opposition to the Israeli regime's occupation of Palestinian land. Meanwhile, million-man marches have been held across Iran, as well as other countries. 

In August 1979, the late founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Khomeini declared the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day, calling on Muslims across the world to mark the annual occasion by holding street rallies.

Palestinians are seeking to create an independent state on the territories of the West Bank, East al-Quds (Jerusalem), and the Gaza Strip, and are demanding that Israel withdraw from the Palestinian territories occupied in the 1967 Six-Day War.
