Prime Minister Azad Jammu and Kashmir Raja Muhammad Farooq Haider Khan has said that Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOK) is under complete siege from last three months. Indian actions are crimes against humanity and India should be made accountable for this. Kashmir conflict is not a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan; it is the struggle for right to self determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing to press conference here in Brussels along with Shaffaq Mehmmod MEP, Ali Raza Syed Chairman Kashmir EU Council and Angana P. Chatterji. Raja Farooq Haider Khan said that India is trying to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir. Modi government is working on the Hindutva agenda of RSS. Prime Minister AJK said that India is targeting civilian population at the ceasefire line areas of Azad Kashmir to divert international attention from human rights violations in IOJ&K. Indian army is using cluster bombs.
‘Constitutional changes made by India to abrogate Article 370 and 35-A is the clear violation of UNSC resolution No.122 of 1957 and International humanitarian law’ he added, ‘India is occupier and she had no right to change the status of state and shift her population in this disputed territory’. The Premier said that India and Pakistan should enhance the status of these units rather than relegate as India did in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan had always respected the will and wishes of Kashmiris.
‘Erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir had two hundred years old history as one state, Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh could not be divided but India had divided these two parts and gave them status of union territory without any autonomy and legislative powers.
