The 44th session of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation Council of foreign ministers held in Abidjan, Republic of Cote d’Ivoire, on July 10-11, condemned the state terrorism in Held Kashmir and called upon India to implement the United Nations Security Council resolutions on IHK.
The Council also called upon the United Nations and the international community to play their role in stopping the continuing bloodshed in IHK and for the implementation of the UN Security Council’s resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir, which guarantee Kashmiris’ right to self-determination through a UN supervised plebiscite, a press release issued in Islamabad on Tuesday said.
The resolution, adopted unanimously by the 56-member Council, noted that Jammu and Kashmir remains the core dispute between India and Pakistan, and its early resolution is imperative for bringing peace to South Asia.
The Council expressed its support to the widespread indigenous movement of the people of Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir for their promised right to self-determination and observed that the just struggle of Kashmiris cannot be equated with terrorism.
It deplored the continued use of live ammunition and pellet guns by Indian forces causing mass blinding and killings of innocent Kashmiris. The foreign ministers condemned India for illegal detention of Kashmiris and imprisonment of Hurriyat leaders.
They paid rich tributes to the Kashmiris for the heroic struggle for the realisation of their inalienable right to self-determination. Meanwhile, AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan has demanded the OIC to raise voice against massive human rights violations in the Valley at United Nations and other international forums.
He was addressing Coordination Group of OIC at Ivory Coast Tuesday. He said occupant forces are oppressing peaceful independence movement through state terrorism. However, India will never succeed in its nefarious designs because every child of the Valley is ready to sacrifice his life for success of freedom movement. He thanked OIC for sending its human rights commission for witnessing the situation in Held Kashmir and condemned India for not allowing the Commission to visit IHK.
