It is a painful that Muslims are numerous but powerless, despite abundant resources we are divided. Many powerful nations are playing an old game with us, ‘Divide and Rule,’ the old British game has divided us into two sections the Sunni and Shi’ites. It does not augur well for the entire humanity. Enlightened countries of the Muslim world such as Pakistan, Turkey and Egypt, among others, should come forward to pacify the volatile situation in Yemen, where innocent Yemeni people are being killed and maimed. However, like many others, I believe that as long as Muslim’s hate and fear one another, more than they hate their conquerors, they will remain a vanquished community as they stand nowadays.
