Jeddah: The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has been closely following the recent developments affecting the Muslim minority in India.

In a statement released on Sunday, the OIC expressed its concern over the recent developments pertaining to both the issue of citizenship rights and the Babri Masjid case.

OIC is an organisation consisting of 57 member states, with a collective population of over 1.8 billion as of 2015 with 53 countries being Muslim-majority countries.

The OIC statement came amidst widespread protests against Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 (CAA) all across India. The law enacted on December 12 has also received condemnation from international forums.

At the backdrop of the Ayodhya Verdict wherein the Supreme Court granted the right of the Babri Masjid land to a trust for building a temple, OIC reiterated its call to ensure the safety of the Muslim minority and the protection of Islamic holy places in India.

Also in the statement, the OIC General Secretariat reaffirmed the crucial importance of upholding the principles and obligations enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations and relevant international covenants that guarantee the rights of minorities without any discrimination.

"In this regard, any action, contrary to these principles and obligations, may lead to further tensions and may have serious implications on peace and security across the region", the OIC said.
