Pakistan has decided to take the case of occupied Kashmir after its special status ended by the Modi led the Indian government to the international court of justice. Law ministry headed by Farough Naseem will soon issue all the details in this regard.
Foreign Minister on the decision said that Pakistan stance on the Kashmir is a clear, solid and principled adding that Pakistan after considering all the legal perspective has decided to take the matter to the international court of justice.
The decision comes after Pakistan’s recent diplomatic victory at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), which met for the first time in over five decades last week to discuss the critical situation in Indian occupied Kashmir. During the meeting, UNSC members urged parties to the Kashmir dispute to refrain from taking any unilateral action, effectively rejecting India’s stance that Kashmir was an internal issue and not an internationally recognised dispute.
In occupied Kashmir, curfew and other restrictions continue since August 5 when Narendra Modi government announced scraping of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. The entire occupied territory particularly the Kashmir has been turned into a military garrison as Indian troops and police personnel are deployed in every nook and corner.
In Srinagar, thousands of troops and policemen are patrolling the deserted streets, lanes and by lanes to thwart any attempt of people to stage anti-India demonstrations. The authorities also continue to impose information blockade as TV channels and internet links remain snapped and restrictions on media continue since 5th August.
Due to severe blockade, a famine-like situation is emerging as people are facing severe shortage of essential commodities including baby food and life-saving medicines.
