PACE Statement on the martydom of Ubaidah Alqudsi, alumni of International islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM)

Assalamualaikum and Greetings.

PACE Malaysia extends our deepest condolence to the family of Ubaidah Alqudsi, a young promising man who's life was cut short by the barbaric zionist soldiers (news of his murder attached). Ubaidah Alqudsi an alumni of the International Islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM) was scheduled to have his wedding reception right after the Islamic festive Eid-ul-fitr. Ubaidah Alqudsi, is but one of the many thousands of Palestinians, young and old who paid the ultimate price for the freedom and liberation of their homeland. The tragic death of Ubaidah Alqudsi is a reminder to the whole world that in occupied Palestine, as long as you are a Palestinian you are a legitimate target of the zionist.

PACE called upon the international community to condemn the wanton killings of the Palestinian people and countless other violations of human rights and crimes against humanity inflicted upon the Palestinians almost on a daily basis.After 62 years of being dispossessed of a homeland and 42 years of occupation.

PACE and the people of Malaysia prays for the soul of Ubaidah AlQudsi and for his family and every Palestinian families who have lost their dear ones at the hands of the zionist. PACE Malaysia will continue to support the Palestinian cause and strengthen our solidarity to end the persecutions of Palestinian people.

(The event of the murder and a synopsis of the martyr Ubaidah Alqudsi has been related by Abdullah Mujahid Hassanuddin, a Fellow Researcher of PACE, and a fellow student at IIUM)
Ubaidah Alqudsi, a Palestinain artist, known among his friends for his beautiful voice and lovely character. 2 days ago, Ubaidah passed away in an Israeli hospital, after being held as an injured prisoner. On 26th August, Obaidah was heading to the Abraham Mosque in the Old City of Hebron. While walking to the mosque, Israeli soldiers shot him 4 explosive bullets; two in the abdomen and two in his legs.

Ubaidah, the peaceful soul was murdered in the street in cold blood. Ambulance vehicles were prevented from attending to his bleeding body for 30 minutes. Seeing him bleeding didn’t satisfy their evil lust for blood, hence, they beat his body mecilessly. After a while, he was arrested and sent to an Israeli hospital in occupied Jerusalem. Ever since Ubaidah was under their custody, he was in the state of comma. Ubaidah spent about 3 weeks in the Israeli hospital; and his family was not allowed to visit him till the last day of his life!

On the morning of the 13th of September, Ubaidah’s soul departed to meet his creator seeking his ultimate justice. Hasbunallahu wa ne’mal wakeel (Suffice that Allah be our sustainer)

Ubaidah will always be remembered among his family and friends for his sweet voice and lovely smile. His poetry and Nasheed will always be celebrated by Palestinians, Muslims and all the free people of the world as true words of wisdom and honor.
