Islamabad, November 29 (KMS): The Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir, Shehryar Khan Afridi has warned India against transfer of Kashmiris’ lands to Indian Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), which is a part of making demographic change in the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
Shehryar Khan Afridi addressing participants of the Kashmir Committee meeting held at the Parliament House in Islamabad, today, said the Modi-led fascist Indian regime is hell bent to the demographic status of the occupied territory by accelerating transfer of land to Indian forces under the garb of turning them ‘strategic areas’ which is war crime and crime of aggression under international law.
He said that the world community should put India under scrutiny for extra-judicial killings of the Kashmiri people. He added that the silence of the world over India’s war crimes in IIOJK is encouraging Modi regime to exacerbate its crimes against helpless Kashmiris.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on the occasion said that there is no back channel working between Pakistan and India over Kashmir dispute and neither there would be any dialogue until India creates enabling environment for a dialogue on Kashmir.
“The onus lies with India as they vitiated the environment and they need to create enabling environment for any dialogue. Pakistan will not show leniency towards India,” he said.
Foreign Minister said that Pakistan has been raising Kashmir at all available forums since PTI government took over the reigns of the government. He said Pakistan took the Kashmir dispute at the United Nations Security Council which dented the Indian narrative that Kashmir was an integral part of India.
Qureshi said that Pakistan also raised Kashmir at the human rights council of the UN, European Union and other international parliamentary forums. He said that Kashmiris were the principal party to Kashmir dispute along with Pakistan and India and they would be included in any dialogue on Kashmir.
He said that the measures taken by India on Aug 5, 2019 have violated the bilateral agreements and United Nations conventions and United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions. He said that the post Aug 5, 2019 events have proved that Kahsmiri freedom movement is an indigenous struggle and India has failed in its propaganda to blame Pakistan for the freedom movement.
He said that due to extensive lobbying of Pakistan, today the world stands concerned on Kashmir and the voices within India are also rising. He said that Pakistani missions have been working vigorously to raise awareness on Kashmir dispute and events are being held to spread awareness over the Indian oppressive tactics of India in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). He said he had written 25 letters to the UN secretary general over the issue.
He said due to these efforts, India is subject to more scrutiny to the world community on developments taking place in the IIOJK.
