UAE Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan has told Pakistan that Kashmir is not an issue of the Muslim Ummah and is a dispute between India and Pakistan, Pakistani media has reported. He added that it is a bilateral issue that should be resolved through dialogue between the two countries.
The Pakistani establishment was under the impression that the UAE Minister as travelling to Pakistan to express solidarity with its stance on Kashmir. However, it has been left again with eggs on its faces as the UAE again refused to intervene on the matter.
Journalist Hamid Mir, anchor of the Geo News ‘Capital Talk’ said that Pakistan must convince the world that Narendra Modi’s ‘atrocities’ against Muslims is not limited to Kashmir alone but he wants to convert all of India’s Muslims to Hindus through a reign of terror. According to him, in this context, Kashmir is an issue that concerns the Muslim world and this is what Pakistan ought to tell the world.
Meanwhile, Arab countries don’t appear to take Pakistanis seriously. Narendra Modi was conferred with the Order of Zayed, the highest Civilian honour of UAE after the abrogation of Article 370 in August. Bahrain, another Islamic country, awarded Narendra Modi The King Hamad Order of the Renaissance the same month.
