Every summit of the OIC concludes stating “any threat to security of any member state is a threat to world peace and security and requires action within the framework of the OIC”.

Currently the role of the OIC is obscure regarding the ongoing Israeli heinous attacks on Palestinians. Why is the Muslim Ummah dormant? There are 57 Islamic countries but all these are under the hegemony of big powers. All these seem to be silent spectators. The OIC should take measures to prevent Israel’s further aggression on the innocent people of Gaza.

In addition to that, the international community, particularly human rights organisations, should intervene in this conflict and resolve it.

The UN should implement its objective to maintain peace in the world by preventing and stopping wars.
