Pakistan has rejected India’s” unwarranted” expostulation to inviting Kashmiri leaders to share in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) peak being held coming week in Islamabad.
In a statement on Thursday, the Foreign Office said Pakistan explosively rejected the statement by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) prophet expostulating to the assignation, adding that India has”no locus standi”to claim that engaged Kashmir is its” internal matter”.
The meeting of OIC’s Council of Foreign Ministers is being held on March 22-23 in Islamabad. Foreign ministers of 48 countries have verified their participation in the event.
A day before, prophet for India’s Ministry of External Affairs, Arindam Bagchi, said he’d seen reports in the original media that the OIC clerk general had invited All Parties Hurriyat Conference president Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to the meeting.
The Indian government takes a” veritably serious view of similar conduct which are aimed directly at cankering India’s concinnity and violating our sovereignty and territorial integrity,”The Hindustan Times quoted Bagchi as saying.
“We’ve constantly called upon the OIC to refrain from allowing vested interests to exploit its platform for commentary on India’s internal affairs,”he added.
Responding to the Indian MEA prophet’s statement, the Foreign Office noted that several United Nations Security Council (UNSC) judgments stated that the final decision of the Kashmir disagreement would be made in agreement with the wishes of the people of the home through a plebiscite.
“India’s repeated assertions to the negative can not befog the reality of its illegal occupation and suppression in ( enthralled Kashmir),”the FO added.
It further said that both the UNSC as well as the OIC recognised Kashmiris’ right to tone- determination.” Consequently, OIC has constantly supported the just struggle of the Kashmiri people for their right to tone- determination and has traditionally invited the Kashmiri leadership to attend the OIC meetings.”
In its statement, the FO also called on India to”not produce hurdles in the participation of true representatives of the Kashmiri people”in the OIC peak.
” Rather of questioning OIC’s principled station for the quality and liberty of the tyrannized Kashmiri people, India should reflect inwards and end its suppression and wide violations of mortal rights and transnational philanthropic law in Indian Immorally Enthralled Jammu and Kashmir, and let the Kashmiri people exercise their right to tone- determination in agreement with the applicable judgments of the UN Security Council,”the FO said.
