The General Secretariat of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (ICO) reaffirmed on Saturday the internationally recognized status of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, contradicting the Indian government's claim that the matter was a bilateral problem between him and Pakistan, a press release issued by the Islamic. said the block.
According to the statement, the ICO General Secretariat has "followed with concern" the events in occupied Kashmir since India's unilateral decision to revoke Article 370 of its constitution, which granted special autonomy to occupied Kashmir, on 5 of August.
"The General Secretariat reaffirms the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council on the internationally recognized status of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute and its final disposition through a referendum supervised by the UN," he said.
The OIC reiterated its solidarity with the people of occupied Kashmir, recalling the decisions taken at the ICO Summit and the resolutions adopted by the meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers.
He called for the "immediate lifting of the curfew, the restoration of communication and respect for the fundamental rights of cashmere."
Recognizing the need to find a lasting solution to the Kashmir problem in accordance with the resolutions of the UN Security Council, the OIC General Secretariat emphasized the need to resume the process of dialogue between Pakistan and India, which qualified as a "prerequisite for development, peace and stability in South Asia."
On August 5, the Indian nationalist government of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi stripped the cashmere of the special autonomy they had for seven decades through a hasty presidential order. An indefinite curfew was imposed on occupied Kashmir and elected leaders were placed under house arrest. The repression is now on its 27th day.
The ICO statement on Kashmir comes amid criticism in Pakistan about Muslim countries and the ICO's lukewarm response to the Indian movement to annex occupied Kashmir. Former Senate President Mian Raza Rabbani suggested Friday that it was time for Pakistan to withdraw from the ICO.
Participating in a discussion on Kashmir in the upper house, he said that the "bubble of an Islamic Ummah has burst" and that Pakistan should reassess its relationship with the Muslim world.
