LAHORE – Muslims have always been accused of not being united against the atrocities the Ummah faces time and again. In 1972, the Organization for Islamic cooperation (OIC) was founded to talk on and take a stand on such issues. It is a forum where Head of the States get together in order to address, react and resolve the problems Muslim world faces.
Though this is a conference where only head of the states are invited but seeing the performance, transparency, passion and commitment towards his duties accompanied with his international vision, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif has been specially invited on this mega event of OIC 2017 in Istanbul Turkey.
Leaving for Turkey along with PM Abbasi to attend the OIC Extraordinary Summit on Jerusalem. The Muslim Ummah leaders must take extraordinary decisions to deal with this extraordinary situation which is now even bigger than Palestinian issue …

President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem represents the severest setback to the peace process & opens old wounds. The decision has reinforced the Palestinians’ lack of trust in the honesty of the Trump Administration as a peace broker. We strongly condemn this move of the US!

This invitation is a clear delineation of international powers recognising his vision over the international affairs and how well his prophecies can benefit not only a province but all the 57 Islamic states.
Shehbaz Sharif has got this image from his hard work and portrayal of his illustrious ideas on international conventions like One Belt One Road (OBOR) in Beijing and providing impetus of success through CPEC between Pakistan and China and its Global benefits.
This is a convention where his bold and charismatic personality is expected to talk about the Palestinian issue accompanied by the Kashmir issue, benefiting his recipients with his worthwhile ideas of diplomacy and solutions over peace and harmony in order to make world a better place to live.
How did social media respond?
Well, who can deny this fact that Shehbaz Sharif is a popular figure all over Pakistan because of his exceptional governance, and willingness to perform in toughest situations? However, now it is the international community that is extremely fond of the CM’s visionary thinking, and for this reason, many of international leaders interact to have his opinion on various matters.
شہباز شریف ہی کیوں؟
باقی صوبوں کے وزراء اعلیٰ کیوں نہیں؟؟؟
کیونکہ یہ شہباز شریف ہی تھا جس نے سب سے پہلے امریکہ کے یروشلم کو اسرائیل کا حصہ ماننے پر سخت ردعمل کا اظہار کیا تھا ۔یہ پنجاب کا ہی نہٓیں بلکہ پاکستان کا لیڈر بھی ہے

The CM, this time is participating in the extraordinary summit of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at Istanbul, Turkey, over US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. This indeed is a very sensitive issue as state heads of the 57 Muslim member states are participating for policy formulation on this critical subject.
It really is an honour for Pakistan that among these international leaders, the chief minister is especially invited to have his concrete opinion on this imperative matter. This truly is an admiration by the Muslim world to Shehbaz Sharif’s grip on international issues, and hence, his views will be given special consideration is this significant meeting.
Jaany na Jaany ‘Gul’ hi na jaany
‘Baagh’ to sara jaany hai
It is pertinent to mention that it is the first time in the history that a CM of a province has been invited to attend OIC Meeting.It is no less than an honor that Muslim Ummah is admiring the efforts of @CMShehbaz

The holy city of Jerusalem, without a doubt, has been at the heart of Palestinians’ quest for identity. They have always regarded the city as their future capital. Despite its occupation by Israel, the world has not put its seal of approval on the Israeli action. The 1993 Oslo peace accords spelled out direct negotiation and that too at last stage of peace talks. Trump has upset the apple cart with his reckless action.

Within Pakistan, the people of other provinces now have also become a huge fan of CM Punjab’s incredible approach towards governance. Particularly, through their tweets, they openly appreciate the development steps taken in Punjab under Shehbaz Sharif’s rule as historic initiatives, and urge their respective provincial heads as well to follow his footsteps. It is these amazing skills and great vision of CM Punjab that people from every province are now idealising him as their upcoming national leader, and it would not be wrong to say that he is currently part of the Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s remarkable league as present great Muslim leaders in the world.
Because he has done what others could not. He has delivered, has matchless class in this regard. Majority of the people of his province are happy with his governance. He has good relations with world leaders; with @RT_Erdogan especially (given the current scenario) – best suited!
