Media and Opposition leaders in Pakistan are criticising Nawaz Sharif after facing humiliation at the US-Arab-Islamic Summit.

Media and Opposition leaders in Pakistan are criticising Nawaz Sharif after facing humiliation at the US-Arab-Islamic Summit.

Mortified – that is the word used by The Nation, a major Pakistani newspaper, on how Pakistani delegation, led by its prime minister Nawaz Sharif, looked like at the just concluded US-Arab-Islamic Summit in the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh.

According to another story, published in The News today, “something has gone terribly wrong as the Summit didn’t mention Pakistan’s role against global terrorism and its prime minister Nawaz Sharif was not given chance to put forth the country’s point of view’ whereas Pakistan has lost over 70,000 civilians and 6000 security forces personnel in terrorism related violence.”

The article that defines Pakistan as a ‘frontline state’ and the ‘sole Muslim nuclear power’ rakes up the Kulbhushan Jadhav case and says such a treatment becomes more pinching when you find that US President Donald Trump mentioned India in the list of terror victims but ignored Pakistan that “is trying to convince the world of New Delhi’s role in fanning terror through spy-terrorist Kalbhushan Jadhav’s case at International Court of Justice.”

The article summed up the mood at the summit, “The popular sentiment among the majority of Pakistani media delegation was that of a total humiliation.”

Pakistan’s treatment at the summit has started making headlines in the country with opposition parties targeting Nawaz Sharif. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has taken on Nawaz Sharif for letting Pakistan and other Muslim communities down with his ineffective presence at the global forum. We can feel the heat of the royal snub that Pakistan was given in Khan’s words, “The most important thing is that he [Trump] did not even mention Pakistan, the country that fought America’s war and lost 70,000 people

  1. I wonder anyway what all the Kings and Heads of State were thinking during the whole show. After all they all know that the US has been supporting terrorist groups all along, supplying all sides with arms, ensuring that the war on terror keeps continuing, and thereby ensuring the aim of destabilization and destruction. What is spoken in public is not the same as what is spoken behind closed doors. ‘Forked Tongues’ I think the Native Americans used to call it.

  2. Pakistan is the first country which ignited the flame of terrorism . Even today , a leader like Imran Khan says that a blasphemer deserves death penalty . Is it not terrorism ? It is good that now Pakistan has been exposed .
