In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

‘The Islamic world …. Issues and chances of development’ was the caption of the periodical meeting of the Islamic Conference held on 6th and 7th February 2013, in the Egyptian capital Cairo. The heads and distinguished representatives of 56 Islamic countries out of total 57 member countries of this organization participated. The Syrian membership is suspended because of the ongoing situation and was not given the right to participate.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which was previously known as the Organization of Islamic Conference, was established in a historical summit in the Moroccan capital Al-Rabat on 25 September 1969. This organization came into being in the result of the historical brutality of Zionists when they intentionally put the Al-Aqsa Mosque on fire on 21st August 1969 with great barbarism.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation was based on I’man (belief) and Taqwa (piety). Strengthening of Islamic brotherhood, defense of the Muslim nations, unification of the Muslim world, growth of economic relations among the Muslim countries, helping one another in solving the issues and restoration of justice on international level are included in its objectives.

The twelfth summit of this organization was inaugurated on last Wednesday with the opening speech of the Egyptian President, Mr. Mohammad Mursi and its leadership was also transferred to Egypt. As Egypt is an important country on the regional and international level, the hopes of the oppressed Muslim masses will boost up for the future of this organization regarding the emancipative optimistic decisions and they will surely revere this kind of resolutions.

In its history of 44 years, this organization has backed the oppressed nations and besides supporting the crucial issue of the Islamic world (i.e. Palestine issue) has also tried to defend Al-Aqsa Mosque, Babri Mosque and other Islamic sanctities. In eighties, the historical decision of the Islamic Conference is commendable when it firmly stood alongside Afghanistan against the then Soviet Union and persistently supported the Afghan nation until the red forces withdrew from the pious land of Afghanistan. Today it has girded up its loins to assist the distressed people of Syria and is trying to relieve the grief of this Muslim nation.

The Afghan nation is facing a lot of troubles and miseries since 2001 just because of the occupation and has kept warm the fronts of Jihad under the leadership of the Islamic Emirate, hopes that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will support them in repossessing the sovereignty of Afghanistan, establishing an Islamic government and the reconstruction of Afghanistan. It will take urgent and serious measures to solve their intricacies so that the Afghan nation could decide their destiny by themselves after the withdrawal of the occupying assassin forces.
