Responding to media queries, the Spokesperson said Pakistan rejects the irresponsible remarks by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s tweet condemning the recent Indian steps to illegally change the demographic structure of the Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K).
The latest Indian action, aimed at further usurping the fundamental rights of the Kashmiri people through changing the domicile law at a time when the world is busy fighting COVID-19 pandemic, once again betrays the BJP leadership’s rank political opportunism and moral bankruptcy.
India’s incessant regurgitation of the claim that Occupied Jammu and Kashmir is an “internal affair” will neither turn this falsehood into truth, nor make this illegality legally valid. The IOJ&K is an internationally recognized “disputed” territory, as enshrined in the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions. These Resolutions stipulate that the final disposition of the State of Jammu & Kashmir will be decided through the democratic method of a free and impartial plebiscite under the UN auspices.
No amount of Indian sophistry could obfuscate India’s state-terrorism in IOJ&K and the RSS-inspired “Hindutva” agenda being imposed by the BJP Government. Nor would India’s use of brutal force ever succeed in breaking the will of the Kashmiri people fighting for their inalienable right to self-determination.
It should also be clear to India that, for their part, Pakistan and its leadership will never flinch in their support for the just and legitimate cause of the Kashmiri people.
