Call for the formation of a permanent commission for Israel and Palestine regions
Recently, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation – OIC has demanded the United Nations Human Rights Council – UNHRC to establish a permanent commission. This commission can report human rights violations throughout Israel, Gaza and the West Bank.
What is a Permanent Commission?
- The proposed permanent commission is an independent international commission of inquiry. It will be appointed by the President of the United Nations Human Rights Council. The commission will investigate human atrocities and violations of human rights law in Israel and Palestine. This proposed commission can often investigate all the underlying causes of tension and instability in the region.
Organization of Islamic Cooperation – OCI
- OCI is the second largest intergovernmental organization after the United Nations, comprising 57 countries. It is headquartered in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It serves as “the collective voice of the Muslim world”. It is involved in protecting the interests of Muslims to promote international peace and harmony around the world. It was founded in 1969 during a summit in Rabat, Morocco.
Is India a member of the OIC?
- It is a matter of great surprise that, compared to all the countries of the world, more Muslims live in India, yet India has not been made a member of the OIC. But in the year 2019, India was invited as a distinguished guest to attend the 46th session of the Council of Foreign Ministers.
United Nations Human Rights Council – UNHCR
The United Nations Human Rights Council is an inter-governmental body of the United Nations. It consists of 47 member countries of the United Nations. It was established in 2006 by the United Nations General Assembly. It is working towards strengthening the promotion, protection and protection of human rights worldwide.
