Islamabad, (ZNN TV) : President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry has said that over the past 70 years India has been remorselessly violating the UN resolutions on Kashmir and denying Kashmiris of their inalienable right the right to self-determination.
Addressing a special meeting of the Kashmir Contact Group of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at Parliament House Islamabad here today, the president said that owing to India’s continual denial to grant Kashmiris their birth right, the issue of Kashmir has been hanging over for the past seven decades.“Dozens of the UN resolutions have been passed in this regard but India has been consistently violating these resolutions and denying Kashmiris of their right to self-determination”, he said adding that in brazen violation of the UN resolution the Indian government had changed the special status of the occupied Kashmir on August 5, 2019. Since then, he said, “Indian authorities have issued fake domiciles to 4.2 million non-state Hindus to change the proportion of population there”.Granting state subject rights to non-Kashmiris and nefarious designs to change the region’s demography, he said, was a flagrant violation of the UN resolutions.He said that the UN Commission on Human Rights had submitted a report on human rights violations in 2018, which mentioned widespread human rights violations committed by India forces. He lamented that the human rights violations were still rampant in occupied territory. He said that the OIC should play its role for the release of political leaders and youth who have been arrested before and after 5th August 2019 and left to rot in jails far away from their homes.He urged the OIC countries to stop oppression and barbarism in occupied Kashmir and impose economic sanctions on India. “Islamic countries should boycott unlawful meat and commodities”, he said and suggested that the Muslim body should set up a Humanitarian aid for Kashmiris.On the occasion, the APHC representative Syed Faiz Naqshbandi and Ghulam Muhammad Safi briefed the OIC delegations about the prevailing political and human rights situation in the occupied Kashmir.
