The organisation of Islamic Cooperation ( OIC ) ;
It is an International organisation founded in 1969, and consisting of 57 member countries, with a collective population of over 1.7 billion as of 2015 with 53 countries being Muslim-majority countries. But the main question arises, Why Pakistan wants to set up its own Islamic bloc rather than keeping membership in this Organisation. This has been created a big controversy among the Islamic countries because Pakistan is the only country in OIC, which has nuclear power.
The objective of OIC ;
Its main objective is to uplift the Islamic country’s views and work on it, and also it works to maintain peace and harmony among the Islamic countries.

This is the most befitting reply to OIC in advance since it’s inception in 1969.
I am so proud of this stance.

| A Big Controversy | – Why Pakistan wants to set up its own Islamic bloc ???
After the abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan got frustrated from this decision of Modi govt. And that is why Pakistan has raised its voice in Organisation of Islamic Cooperation against India on Kashmir issue. But OIC rejected because according to OIC, they can not do as per the recommendation of Pakistan, if they will initiate, then India and United nation will point out us and that would be quite risky for Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.
By the rejection of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, now Pakistan has organised an immediate meeting with OIC and will clear every parameter.
|Statement of Shah Mehmood Qureshi ;|
Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Mr Shah Mehmood Qureshi was quoted by Dawn as saying, ” I am once again respectfully telling OIC that a meeting of the council of foreign Ministers is our expectation. If you cannot convene it, then I’ll be compelled to ask Prime Minister Imran Khan to call a meeting of the Islamic countries that are ready to stand with us on the issue of Kashmir and support the oppressed Kashmiris. ”
In March 2019, Shah Mehmood Qureshi boycotted a meeting of OIC Foreign Ministers after India’s then External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was guest of honour at the organisation’s summit in Abu Dhabi.

The organisation of Islamic Cooperation used to deal with only Geo-political issues of Islam, but now it has also initiated its development in terms of science and technology. Recently in 2017, it launched its first science and technology summit at the level of state and government in Astana, Republic of Kazakhstan.
India-OIC Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Indus;
The Government is keen to double its exports by 2013-2024 to $500 billion. To achieve this target, Indian exporters need to gear up to face the changed situation in the world scenario. We have to diversify into new markets and newer markets in OIC nations, Asia, African and Latin America. India has to become a major player in World Trade by 2020 and has to assume a role of leadership in International Trade Organisation Organisations which will commensurate with India’s growing importance.
Exports are increasingly becoming important to the Indian economy. IICCI is actively engaged with the Indian government to adopt an ideal mix of policy instruments including fiscal incentives, institutional changes, procedural rationalization, obtaining enhanced market access across the world.
Countries which can Join Pakistan for Kashmir Issue;
There are some both Islamic and non-Islamic countries which would join Pakistan for Kashmir Issue against India. Instead of rejection from OIC on Kashmir issue, these countries would collaborate with Pakistan.
- Sudan ( Possibility )
- Tajikistan ( Possibility )
Why Turkey and Azerbaijan can join Pakistan?
Turkey is having good relationships with Azerbaijan, and both these countries are having some conflicts with Armenia, which lies middle to these countries. Pakistan supports these two countries ( Turkey and Azerbaijan ). That is why it is estimated that Turkey and Azerbaijan can join Pakistan.
Why Iran and Malaysia can join Pakistan?
Recently a meeting was hosted by Malaysia for Islamic integration excluding OIC, then Iran was the part of that meeting, which was hosted by Malaysia. There is a possibility for Iran to join Pakistan to raise the voice against India on the issue of Kashmir.
Why Qatar can join Pakistan?
The relations of South Arabia and Qatar are not too much good because South Arabia strongly supports India in terms of trade and commerce. That is why according to Qatar, South Arabia give more importance to non-Islamic countries. This conflict will initiate good relations between Pakistan and Qatar.
According to our research, Pakistan has fully planned and ready to set up its own Islamic bloc in collaboration with the above possibly mentioned countries. But the problem of Pakistan will not be solved because it is interfering in another country’s matter. Kashmir had been declared as the part of India by Maharaja Hari Singh by signing Treaty of Annexation with India. So, this is the internal matter of India, where Pakistan cannot interfere in it.
