Moslems Trying to Revive Wailing Wall Issue: Shaukat Ali Wants to Call All-moslem Conference in Jeru

An attempt by the Moslem side to revive the controversy about the Wailing Wall (of which the League of Nations Council has just said that it hopes that it has been ended by the decision of its Wailing Wall Commission) seems to be foreshadowed by a report current here to-day that Shaukat Ali, the Indian Moslem leader, who has been spending this week in Jerusalem, wants to call an All-Moslem Conference in Jerusalem for the day commemorating Mohamed’s tethering of his steed Al Buraq (after which the Moslems call the Wailing Wall) at a spot near the Wailing Wall, before his miraculous flight to heaven. Al-Buraq Day, according to the Moslem calendar, occurs on December 7th.

Shaukat Ali left to-day for Port Said, where he will embark to-night on the “Rajputana”, on which Chandi is also sailing, and they will proceed together to London for the Indian Round Table Conference.
