Meanwhile, Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Senator Sirajul Haq has expressed his strong reaction to the diplomatic agreement reached between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel.

In his statement, Siraj-ul-Haq said that the government should convene an OIC meeting and the UAE should be pressed not to divide the Muslim Ummah.

The JI chief said that the UAE should review the agreement with Israel. US President Donald Trump has brokered the deal between the UAE and Israel to win election, he claimed.

He said that the diplomatic relations between Israel and the UAE were a great tragedy for the Muslim world.
