Pakistan was one of the first countries with which Malaysian Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Muhammad had shared his plans of conducting a summit.

‘Division in Ummah’:

However, earlier this week Pakistan decided not to participate in Kuala Lumpur Summit at any level. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Saudi Arabia and UAE had concerns over the Summit that the event could cause “Division in the Ummah”

However, Saudi Arabia has concerns about the new organization parallel to the Saudi controlled OIC.

Meanwhile, the President of Turkey while talking to the media said that this is not the first time Saudi Arabia and UAE pressurize a country to do things according to their interests.

He said, “Unfortunately, we see that Saudi Arabia pressures Pakistan. Now, there are promises that the country has given to Pakistan regarding the central bank. However, more than that, four million Pakistanis are working in Saudi Arabia. Moreover, they [threaten by saying that they] would send [Pakistanis] back and re-employ Bangladeshis instead”.

Saudi Arabia denies pressuring and threatening Pakistan:

In response to the statement of the Turkish President, the Saudi embassy in Pakistan denied the accusations of pressurizing and threatening Pakistan from participating in the Kuala Lumpur Summit.

The embassy further released a statement, “We strive always to stand with Pakistan to be a successful and stable country,”

However, Pakistan’s foreign office not directly addressing the statement of Turkish’s President said, “Pakistan did not participate in the summit to address the concerns of major Muslim countries regarding possible division in the Ummah”.
