Reader Comments:

OIC FMs Conference was an utter failure.

OIC remains out of reach to the think tanks and in absence of democracy in Muslim countries the democratic countries have little importance for the OIC itself. Arabs are in disarray and the Middle East lies wide open for ambitious forces to penetrate there. The OIC is an utterly useless body and is located in a backwater city. The Conference in Pakistan was no more than a festive event. Pakistan is itself has become a laughing stock both at home and abroad. The real fault line lies in the absence of nurseries to produce leadership and diplomacy. The Foreign Minister, Mr. Kasuri has no roots with the public or media. He has nothing whatever to show except wearing three piece suits at all occasions.
