  • Flag of India India - has the third largest (Behind Indonesia and Pakistan, respectively) Muslim population in the world and had shown its interest in joining the OIC, as an observer nation. While India's candidacy is supported by several OIC members including Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Iran and Egypt,[1] some influential OIC members like Pakistan have blocked India's inclusion into the OIC. They argue that though India is home to more than 135 million Muslims, they form just over 13% of India's total population. Another major factor affecting India's induction into the OIC is the Kashmir dispute. Some prominent members of the OIC support the Pakistani claim over the entire region of Kashmir.[2] Also, India established full diplomatic relations with Israel in 1992 and reduced its support for the Palestinian cause. Relations between India and OIC severed in 2001 when the latter criticised India for not doing enough to stop the alleged human rights violations against Muslims in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. India rejected the charge saying the OIC did not have "locus standi" on matters relating to India's internal affairs.[3]
  • Flag of the Philippines Philippines - The Philippine government has made attempts to join the OIC, but was opposed by its Muslim minority of the state. Muslims make up only 5% (4.5 million) of the 90 million population in this predominately Christian country (this estimate is disputed by the BangsaMoro people that put the Muslim population at 15 million) [4]
