“This is a solemn moment, solemn in the history of the world, in the history of this great — let us hope, at least — great Organisation. The United Nations is today on trial. The world is watching and will see how it acquits itself — again, perhaps, not so much from the point of view of whether partition is approved or not approved, but from the point of view of whether any room is to be left for the exercise of honest judgment and conscience in decisions taken upon important questions.”
-Sir Zafarullah Khan’s Address to UN Security Council on the issue of Palestine. (October 7, 1947)The Gaza death toll is nearing a bloody 1000 as Israeli barbarities continue.
Since the atrocious bombing began, torrents of sympathy and solidarity with Gaza have been released from all quarters all over Pakistan.
And with them, there has been a caustic expression lamenting and bemoaning Pakistan and the Muslim world’s sickly response to the barbarities in Palestine.
However, what has been rendered unknown today is that Pakistan once played a significant role on the international stage.
