Whether people not only from Muslim world, rest of the world and especially in its arch rival (rather enemy) India like it or not, the providence has given to Pakistan the key for not only solving the Palestine problem peacefully but also to bring a fundamental change in global political order. There is no harm in Saudi Arabia presently keeping the leadership of ‘Organization of Islamic cooperation’ (OIC of 57 Muslim countries) but Saudis can’t be allowed to keep it exclusively because armed conflict (war) has been and is going on between Palestinians (Hamas) and Israel which inextricably brings Pakistan into the picture as explained below:-

(1)- Saudis & OIC are completely confused and paralyzed in the given situation between Israel & Palestine which is evident from the OIC resolution of Sunday May 16 (https://www.oic-oci.org/topic/?t_id=26153&t_ref=16389&lan=en ) the relevant parts of which are given below:-

(i)- All these acts (of Israel) constitute gross violation of international law, attaining the level of war crimes and crimes against humanity for which the occupation must be held accountable and the colonial system BOYCOTTED AND SANCTIONED.

(ii)- UN Security Council resolution 2334 (2016) which reads as -”[Stressing that the status quo is not sustainable and that significant steps, consistent with the transition contemplated by prior agreements, are urgently needed in order to stabilize the situation and to reverse negative trends on the ground, WHICH ARE STEADILY ERODING THE TWO-STATE-SOLUTION AND ENTRENCHING A ONE-STATE REALITY.

(iii)- United Nations General Assembly Resolution 194 (III) of 11 December 1948

Which reads as -”[ Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors SHOULD BE PERMITTED TO DO SO at the earliest practicable date]”

(iv)- INVITES MEMBER STATES TO make concerted and individual efforts, to rally round and defend Al-Quds and its holy sites, FACE UP TO ISRAEL’S CRIMES, provide the Palestinian people with support and the wherewithal for steadfastness to confront the Israeli barbaric attacks

(v)- DECIDES TO MOVE URGENTLY  and carry out the necessary contacts to implement this resolution and convey its contents to all relevant bodies, at INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS to act urgently to convey the contents of this resolution to the states and organizations of their accreditation.

(2)- The OIC is not serious is evident from the fact that despite mention of ‘the occupation must be held accountable and the colonial system boycotted and sanctioned’ which is the only measure with teeth BUT the OIC / Saudis have not taken any effective and urgent measure in this regard.

(3)- The unethical & mischievous mindset of the Muslim world can be gauged by the attitude of Indian Muslims too where during a webinar on Monday May 17 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNej66u7Eak ) the Muslim leaders asked Palestinians to continue to offer martyrdom for Al-Aqsa and motherland which is ludicrous given the fact that Indian Muslims (WHO ALSO MERELY READ QURAN WITOUT PRACTICING ITS BASIC PRINCIPLES) have been showing un-Islamic cowardice in not filing petitions in Supreme Court for legally expected restoration of status-quo-ante of Babri-Masjid, for repealing discriminatory reservation laws which give reservation to even those castes of Hindus (so-called backwards) which once ruled in India, for repealing discriminatory cow-slaughter laws which has created violent vigilantes of Hindutva forces against Muslims, for repealing anti-conversion (‘Love-Jihad’) laws which has caused violence against Muslims, for plebiscite in J&K as mandated by ‘Instrument of Accession’ which has caused huge loss of human rights especially of Kashmiris, for repealing ‘Citizen Amendment Act’ by demanding dual citizenship to about 160 million descendants of displaced who illegally forced out of their motherland during partition (illegal because there was no provision of population transfer in ‘Indian Independence Act’).

(4)- It is a settled law that martial (armed) remedy should be taken only when remedy under criminal law is exhausted. Hence when remedy under criminal law through the UN can be taken by a peaceful march in the interest of rehabilitating the Palestinians in one State of Israel-Palestine as was rightly accepted by UNSC resolution 2334 (2016) (as mentioned at https://chauthiduniya.com/us-muslims-can-easily-solve-palestinians-problem-by-secular-non-violent-march-for-their-rehabilitation-through-one-state-solution/  or https://www.pakistanchristianpost.com/opinion-details/3823 ), then it is unethical on the part of Indian Muslims and other Muslims to expect the continuation of martial remedy which is unnecessarily resulting in huge loss of lives, blood, properties and even alleged dishonoring of women for Palestinians.

(5)- Only Pakistan (having ~ 220 million population, strong military with nukes and which is even now providing security to Mecca, Median, palaces and other important assets of Saudi Arabia) will be able to provide leadership for martial approach  (the details of which need not be explained at present) in case of failure of said non-violent approach of peaceful march to Israel-Palestine (Turkey is a member of NATO hence practically can’t do any any thing and Iran being Shia country its leadership will not be acceptable to Sunni majority OIC). Hence Pakistan should take de-facto lead (while leaving de-jure leadership of OIC with Saudis) for this peaceful approach under criminal laws through the UN. But Pakistan will be able to do it only when first of all it clears its confusion about forcefully displaced people, as given below:-

(i)- What Israel did to Palestinians (with the complexity of Britain, to some extent of European countries and mainly by the USA) was done by Muslims in united- India when Muslims (under the leadership of Jinnah) first illegally got territory (West & East Pakistan) from irresponsible Britishers (with the complicity of the leaders Gandhi, Nehru, Patel etc) and  then expelled by force about 20 % Hindu population from both Pakistan and present day Bangladesh. Hence the expulsion of both needs to be reversed. Of Palestinians through said ‘one-State-solution’ and for Hindus (Punjabis, Bengalis and Sindhis) similarly for Muslims by said dual citizenship.

(ii)- Territories are always decided by military power, that is why the South was not given territory during the US-civil war of 1861 by Prez Lincoln. Though pre-partition Indians were demanding independence & territories when remedy under criminal law was exhausted in pre-partition India but neither Hindus nor Muslims took martial approach by raising the guns for it. Gandhi even resorted to an absurd and unethical call of ‘Quit India’ during World War II in 1942 about which US Prez FDR said ‘do you want Hitler to win’. It was this confusion of martial & criminal remedies which resulted in about 1 million killed and about 15 million illegally displaced during partition in most gory situations.

(iii)- Jinnah (having sufficient exposure to Western world) knew that in the modern world only those can become powerful with justice who practice secular democracy hence he wanted a separate country because he believed that in Hindu majority India under leadership of Gandhi, Nehru, Patel etc secularism can’t be practiced in India. Therefore he said during his August 11, 1947 speech to Pakistan Constituent Assembly that “Hindus would cease to be Hindus, and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the State”.

(iv)- In order to realize Pakistan ‘DURING HIS LIFETIME” Jinnah compromised with Muslim communal forces and the result is for everyone to see which has brought theological State of Pakistan and even Bangladesh (with milder version) and has thoroughly communalized India (where ruling BJP led by Modi openly says that we don’t need votes of Muslims in elections to rule India) and Indian subcontinent.

Therefore in view of lack of interest among US-Muslims for getting relief to Palestinians (despite their drama of sympathy towards Palestinians through demonstrations in many cities in the USA), the  Pakistanis should take the lead for a peaceful march of over 10 million people (about 5 million refugees + about 5 million volunteers) on a nonviolent secular basis for one-State-solution in order to get relief by rehabilitating about 14 million Palestinians in one State of Israel.
