International win: Pakistan made deputy chief of OIC body


News Desk |

Pakistan has had another diplomatic success by winning the slot of deputy Chairman of the general body of the Parliamentary Union of OIC (PUIC). Besides this, Pakistan’s woman representative MNA Naureen Farooq has also been elected vice president of the 8th Muslim Women Parliamentarians Conference.

According to an official announcement, Pakistan has been elected deputy Chairman of PUIC’s general body on the first day (Monday, 11th March) of its four-day conference being held in Rabat, Morocco.

Kashmir Committee chairman Syed Fakkhar Imam is heading a four-member Pakistani delegation to the conference. Other members include Qasim Noon, Ahsan Iqbal, and Naureen Farooq.

India’s Congress Party leader Manish Tewari said the Congress would like to ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Swaraj whether this really was the ‘diplomatic achievement’.

The PUIC conference has already taken up two resolutions presented by Pakistan related to the recent atrocities and inhuman attitude of Indian occupation forces against the innocent people of held Kashmir. The second resolution was about protecting Muslim women and children in areas under occupation and conflict across the globe.

The main agenda of sending the Pakistani delegation to the conference was seizing an opportunity to apprise the forum about the continued Indian violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, which has brought the region to the brink of war and devastation.

The biting resolution by the OIC’s ministerial meeting in Abu Dhabi earlier this month condemning state terrorism in Indian-held Kashmir (IHK) and the word of “Indian Terrorism” brought a huge embarrassment and setback to the anti-Pakistan rhetoric of Narendra Modi’s government, which had already backfired in an attempt to win votes.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government’s ambition of getting into 57-nation body using a backdoor fell flat when the OIC took Sushma Swaraj, the supposed guest of honor at the plenary by surprise.

India’s Congress Party leader Manish Tewari said the Congress would like to ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Swaraj whether this really was the ‘diplomatic achievement’.

The BJP government fell in another quagmire as it had already been facing the mounting criticism over the failure to prove its claims of a surgical strike inside Pakistan and further embarrassment by Pakistan’s befitting military action resulting in the downing of its two aircraft and arrest of a pilot.
