Dr. Moeed Pirzada Participated in a Round-table Discussion on “Syrian Refugees Crisis : Responsibilities of International Community Organized by Muslim Institute, Islamabad at National Library of Pakistan, Islamabad on September 15, 2015.

Dr Moeed discussed Key points related to Middle East Politics and ongoing conflict.


  1. This was a good discussion. I also attended from my university and was pleased to see the diversity and depth of the speakers arranged by the Muslim Institute. I was not expecting that Muslim Institute will be able to collect so many relevant diplomats from the International community in Islamabad. Almost everyone relevant to the subject was present. Representatives of European Union, United Nations, Germany, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia were present. Dr Moeed Pirzada offered a very cogent analysis of the developing situation and he was right that the first and the foremost challenge of International community is to find a Political solution that can end the lingering civil war within Syria. He pointed out that more than 14 Million people in a country of merely 22 million population are displaced from their homes. About 8 Million are internally displaced and about 5 Million are lying outside the borders in the neighboring countries like Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey.
    Another 1 Million are enroute towards Europe struggling to enter via Greece and Italy. Under the circumstances finding a political solution takes precedence over any plans to overthrow Bashar ul Asad. The sooner this reality sinks in the better it will be for everybody in the region and in the World.

  2. I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very comfortable that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing regarding this.
