Pakistan rejects Indian statement on OIC’s Kashmir resolution

Pakistan on Monday rejected the untenable statement by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Resolution on Jammu and Kashmir dispute. 

The Resolution was unanimously adopted at the 47th Session of OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM), held in Niamey, Niger, on November 28. The OIC is collective voice of the Muslim world and the second largest international organisation after the United Nations with 57 members and five observer states.

Jammu & Kashmir is one of the oldest internationally recognized disputes on the agenda of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), which remains unresolved because of India’s intransigence and unwillingness to implement relevant UNSC resolutions and its own solemn commitments made to Pakistan, the Kashmiris, and the international community.

The latest OIC Resolution is another forceful repudiation of India’s completely flimsy and legally untenable contention that Jammu and Kashmir is its ‘internal’ matter. The OIC Resolution is further proof that India can neither hide its gross and systemic violations of human rights of the Kashmiri people and the denial of their inalienable right to self-determination nor can it escape international censure of its egregious behaviour.

Rather than dismissing the international community’s concerns as reflected in the OIC Resolution, India would be well-advised to heed and stop its state-terrorism in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK); end its illegal and forcible occupation of IIOJK; and take concrete steps towards resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people.
