If the Haramin (Makkah & Madina) were threatened than my Faith (Eemaan) DEMANDS that I don’t sit here and chit-chat with you but grab my weapon and depart top defend the Holy Lands of Islam. I will not sit here and engage in idle discussions with you as my heart and soul won’t allow for it.
But the question is are the Haramin (Makkah & Madina) really threatened? America has (subtly) withdrawn Its military operations from Yemen to the point that even drone attacks are not being conducted so Saudi Arabia (which has been an old friend and ally of America) has been panicking! So in their panic they have reacted next door. The question is that as the strongest Muslim country (militarily not economically) what should be our responsibility in Pakistan? Should we commit our armed forces head long into a conflict?
Friendship doesn’t mean that we involve ourselves in a quagmire which results in flowing of Muslim blood with no end in sight. We have a role to play and our role should be to change crisis into opportunity. The opportunity here is to mend ties between and to end the Shia-Sunni (divide) or Arab-(Non)Arab (divide) and we should (actively) play our part in ending divisions in the Ummah.
The method of that SHOULD have been to invite a meeting of OIC and if there are complaints against Iran than Iran should have been asked to attend (and explain its action), instead Arabs had their own separate Arab league meeting and the divide has been widened (even further). OIC is a wider representative body compared to the Arab league. Pakistan should have asked for OIC and insisted on us (all) sitting together, leading from the front stressing that we are all Brothers so let’s sit together and resolve our differences.
