OIC statement against ‘illegal, unilateral measures’ in IIOJK frustrates India

Geneva, September 14 (KMS): The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has called upon India to implement the applicable UN Security Resolutions on the Kashmir dispute as well as recommendations addressed to the world body in the two reports compiled by Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on Kashmir.

The OIC in a statement delivered to UN Human Rights Council on the occasion of its ongoing 51st session in Geneva said, “The human rights situation in occupied Jammu and Kashmir remains a matter of deep anguish for us”.

“We reiterate our strong demand for reversal of all illegal and unilateral measures taken on or after 5 August 2019, including reversal of illegal demographic changes in the occupied territory,” it said.

The OIC urged the OHCHR to continue monitoring the human rights situation in occupied Jammu and Kashmir and to produce an updated report.

The statement was delivered by Pakistani envoy on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Frustrated by the fresh OIC statement, India tried to hide its embarrassment by terming it “factually incorrect and unwarranted references” to Jammu and Kashmir. New Delhi also accused Pakistan of “peddling malicious propaganda”.

India said it rejects “factually incorrect and unwarranted references to India in the statement by OIC.
