Pakistan has welcomed reaffirmation of principled stance of OIC Human Rights Commission in support of self-determination of Kashmiris and call for end to the ongoing human rights violations in Indian occupied Kashmir.
A statement issued by Foreign Office Spokesperson on Friday said that Pakistan welcomes the holding of OIC’s Human Rights Commission’s first-ever “Open Discussion” on the worsening human situation in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, as part of its 16th Regular Session held in Jeddah on 25th to 28th of this month.
The Open Discussion session, held under IPHRC’s “Standing Mechanism to Monitor Human Rights Situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir”, was attended by all the Commission Members and a large number of the representatives of the OIC Member and Observer States.
Addressing the situation in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir in all its dimensions, the Commission strongly condemned the blatant violation of human rights in Indian occupied Kashmir. There are credible reports of inflicting collective punishment.
“The systematic and systemic human rights violations have a well-defined pattern tantamount to ethnic cleansing and genocide of Kashmiris.” The Commission reaffirmed the right of self-determination of the people of occupied valley under the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions. It reiterated that India’s steps of 5th August were illegal and void.
