I watched the entire proceedings of #OICMakkahSummit for about 8 hrs, and live tweeted at @Office_AQPk interesting tidbits & observations. Here's some observations on PM #ImranKhan's speech. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
PM #Pakistan #ImranKhan was well received at #OICMakkahSummit. #MBS, King of #Bahrain, Pres of #Iraq, PM #Bangladesh, informally interacted with him. #Saudi hosts opened doors at holy sites for only two leaders this time: President Al-Sisi of #Egypt & PM Khan of Pakistan. /2
PM #ImranKhan speech was among the long ones at #OICMakkahSummit. It was extempore. Many Muslim leaders didn't get to speak due to paucity of time. Immediately after PM's speech, Secretariat asked leaders to keep remarks short. PM's speech was among the well delivered speeches./3

Pakistan welcomes the re-election of India PM Narendra Modi to a second term. He makes Indian history. In this #thread, I explain why Islamabad is pleased to see #Modi win & how a historic opportunity emerges to resolve #Kashmir, make peace./1

During the dogfight over #Kashmir skies in Feb 2019, when a #Pakistan-#India nuclear war became a possibility, unprecedented international diplomatic intervention diffused tensions & averted war. But unlike previous crises, many things changed this time. One: world listened to
#Pakistan this time instead of just listening to #India. The 6-times smaller country was always smothered under the attention that India received globally. This time, #NewDelhi overreached, crossed int'l borders to conduct airstrike inside Pak. Strike failed, pilot captured.

Top opposition politicians in #Pakistan from multiple parties, led by #NawazSharif's #PMLN & #Zardari's #PPP, held iftar dinner of #Ramadan, in a message that they're united to topple Prime Minister #ImranKhan of #PTI just 8months after election. /1 #Thread
#ابو_بچاؤ_افطار_پارٹی
The meeting celebrated dynastic politics through the presence of #NawazSharif's daughter & #Zardari's son. Corruption cases & scandals is another thing that has united the Pakistani opposition. They're all facing two options: return corruption money or face jail time.
PM #ImranKhan remains popular despite trouble in his economic team (now resolved). The wealthy opposition is pumping huge money into psychological & disinformation wars against the govt & military to sow confusion. They partially succeeded thanks to weak govt counter strategy.

PM #ImranKhan conducts effective+innovative visit of 'Religious Diplomacy' to #Iran. #Tehran's role in #India's policy of containing #Pakistan & role of groups using Pak soil agst Iran, loom large. My observations in this #Thread./1 #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
Four main questions emerge from #Pakistan PM #ImranKhan's #Iran visit:
1. Are #Pakistani groups committing terror in #Iran?

2. Will #IRGC stop terrorism inside Pakistan?

3. Are Pakistan & Iran equally responsible?

4.Was PM's visit helpful?

/2

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
Fact: There are no #Pakistani groups committing terrorism in #Iran. All #Iranian groups run by Iranian citizens who move across Ir/Pk/Af border triangle. No state effectively controls this area. Main hideouts of Iranian grps are inside Iran, supported by Iranian citizens /3

#Thread | PM #ImranKhan did the right thing by owning #PTM. This one move destroys the designs of regional actors hoping to exploit legitimate grievances of a segment of #Pakistanis. Here's why it's good. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
Misguided or not, #PTM consists of young & educated #Pakistanis. The grievances are real, result of decades of political failures of #Peshawar & #Islamabad, and parties like #ANP #PPP #PMLN. /2
@AQpk
#Pakistani politicians failed to build on successful anti-terror military operations in #FATA. #PakMilitry had to enlist help of #UAE #EU #Japan #KSA to build schools & roads. Precious time was wasted in political squabbles. /3

#Pakistan should de-link #Palestine & #Kashmir, and #Israel/#India, in its foreign policy dictionary.

The foreign policy overhaul should cover this subject smartly, rationally, and with focus on maximizing #Islamabad's gains and limiting losses. /1

#AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
We in #Pakistan have grown used to casually mentioning #Palestine/#Kashmir & #Israel/#India in a way that hurts our position, limits our options, and leads us to inaccurate conclusions and policy positions. It's more emotion and less logic. /2

@AQpk
#Palestine & #Kashmir are two different conflicts/disputes legally & politically, with separate trajectories, solutions & end results. Pal/Isr reached peace agreement & recognized each other in 1994; differ now on implementation. Kashmir is invasion/occupation/annexation./3

Are you aware of the rabid anti-Hindu rhetoric peddled by SEVERAL of #ImranKhan's ministers post Pulwama?

It's all about threatening "cow urine drinkers" and "idol-worshipers" with "jihad" and "ghazwa-e-Hind" and more

@madhur_mrt and I report

swarajyamag.com/world/peace-ge…
Here is Fayaz ul Hasan ‘Chohan’, information and culture minister, in a speech ten days after Pulwama attack
