LAHORE  - Majlis-e-Wahdatul Muslimeen, Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan-Niazi and Sunni Ittehad Council have termed the Saudi Arabia’s attack in Yemen ‘gross violation’ of international law and asked Pakistani government to stay away from the Middle East situation.

Addressing a joint press conference Saturday, the groups’ leaders said the US Awas behind such an intervention. They said the Saudi Arabia was doing the ‘worst kind of human right violation against women and its other citizens within the country and now it was crushing Houthi Movement for rights outside its border’.

“Houthis and Ehle Sunnat men are fighting jointly against Al-Qaida and ISIS in Middle East and crushing them is meant for making strong the terrorists in the region which the Kingdom is doing now,” they held. They appreciated the role of Oman which refused to be part the war against Houthis despite being the member of Gulf Cooperation Council and also demanded of the Pakistani government not to be part the war of others.

They held that any kind of Pakistani cooperation to Saudi Arabia would fan sectarian violence in the country which could not be afford at the time when Pakistani army was focusing at the war against terrorism at its western border.

The scholars of the parties asked for the unity among the Muslims of various school of thoughts in Pakistan.
