Addresses the Inaugural Plenary of World People’s Consultative Assembly Forum in Indonesia with Representation by Parliaments of the Islamic World
All the enemies of Islam successfully target us individually and collectively. Despite the fact that Islam bears the message of tolerance and peace, yet the myths and misconceptions, often with hidden geopolitical agendas, continue to dominate the media because we have repeatedly failed to act as a unit. Chairman Senate Muhammad Saqid Sanjrani said this while addressing the inaugural plenary of World People’s Consultative Assembly Forum in Indonesia. He emphasized that the rising Islamophobia that continues to display dire consequence for Muslims, needs urgent attention. The Pakistan Senate’s Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani accentuated on the atrocities being committed against Muslims in Palestine and Kashmir in particular, and urged to loudly present solving the Rohingya refugees’, crisis and the Afghan rehabilitation. “We must, in close liaison with the UN Security Council, converge this mission with the help of Forums such as this” he added.

Sadiq Sanjrani while addressing the parliaments of the Islamic world lamented that some Muslim countries are in conflict with others and questioned why should Muslims be fighting Muslims? And why do we continue to act like puppets in the hands of more powerful nations who may not be acting in our best interests?” he maintained. Sanjrani said that Pakistan knows the cost of conflicts as we have suffered heavily during the Pakistan’s War against Terrorism in which 83,000 innocent Pakistani lost their lives and the War cost us around US$ 126 billion.

He emphasized that Pakistan’s Armed Forces are one of the most Professional Armed Forces in the world, who are always willing to accept any challenges in the world. Sanjrani said that the Pakistan Armed Forces roles in UN peacekeeping missions, during war and peace time, are a clear testimony to it.
