ISLAMABAD: Chairman of Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir Syed Fakhar Imam Saturday said it was a good decision of the Pakistan government not to attend the meeting of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Talking to the Media he said Pakistan being the founder member of the OIC had a pivotal role for the Muslim Ummah which it should continue playing in future. He said the government should focus on de-escalating the tense situation created by the Indian leadership. Prime Minister Imran Khan already showed statesmanship in the face of Indian aggression and again and again reiterated his offer of peace, which was being lauded by the international community.
Even Indian scholars and writers were writing columns and editorials in the favor of Prime Minister Imran Khan, he added. Fakhar Imam said in the international arena no country could control others. The relations among the countries relations were based on mutual interests, he added. Replying to a question, he said Pakistan had an opportunity in the current situation and should highlight the Kashmir issue more effectively at all international forums through strong diplomacy. He said India become a narrow-minded state and its leadership boasted of it before the international community.
He said India was perpetrating barbarism in the occupied Kashmir. The people of Kashmir had faced Indian brutalities for many decades but after the martyrdom of Burhan Wani, their indigenous independence movement was continuing with full force, he added. He said all political parties of the country were on the same page on the issue of Kashmir as they were united against the Indian aggression. To another query, he said it was unfortunate that the Muslim countries had failed to utilize their resources for developing human resources.
