The move has been hailed as significant, as currently India is trying to corner Pakistan, after the Pulwama attack that claimed lives of more than 40 CRPF jawans.

Invitation to India to speak in the congregation of Islamic countries, cannot have come at a better time when it is launching several diplomatic offensives against the state of Pakistan for its continued backing to Islamic terrorist who perpetrates terror attacks like Pulwama attack in India.

India’s first International win against Islamic terrorism has already come in the form of condemnation by UN Security Council. The UNSC in its statement condemned the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir while naming Jaish-e-Mohammad, the Pakistan based terror group. It also urged other countries to comply with India and other relevant authorities in the investigation into the dastardly terror attack.
