Organization of Islamic Cooperation has called for the immediate lifting of the curfew, restoration of communication and respect for fundamental rights of people in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
In a statement, the OIC has reaffirmed the internationally recognized status of Jammu and Kashmir dispute. “The General Secretariat reaffirms the United Nations Security Council Resolutions on the internationally recognized status of Jammu and Kashmir dispute and its final disposition through a UN-supervised plebiscite,” it said and called for the “immediate lifting of the curfew, restoration of communication and the respect for the fundamental rights of Kashmiris.”
The OIC General Secretariat stressed the need for resumption of dialogue process between Pakistan and India, which is a prerequisite for development, peace and stability in South Asia.
While reacting on OIC’s statement, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has welcomed the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) statement regarding people of occupied Kashmir. Taking to Twitter, Firdous said: “We welcome OIC’s statement on occupied Kashmir, solution of the conflict lies in the resolutions of the United Nations (UN).” In another tweet, she said: “OIC’s statement is Pakistan’s success and the defeat of India.”
The curfew and communication blackout continue in the Kashmir valley, where people are facing acute shortage of essential commodities including baby food and life-saving medicines. The valley remains cut off from the rest of the world since August 05 due to continued blockade and suspension of internet, mobile and landline services and closing of TV channels. The printing of local newspapers remains suspended while schools shut.
