Senate Standing Committee on Interior on Thursday condemned illegal and immoral act of altering disputed status of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK by
Indian government and termed it as ‘a sheer violation of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions on Kashmir.
The Committee, chaired by Senator Rehman Malik, passed a resolution which said, India as a member of United Nations was not entitled to bring such a legislation and UN must take a serious notice of this illegal and immoral action of Indian government immediately.
The meeting was also attended by Minister for Interior, Ijaz Ahmed Shah, Senators including Kalsoom Parveen, Muhammad Javed Abbasi, Muhammad Asad Ali Khan Junejo, Rana Maqbool Ahmed,
Sardar Muhammad Shafiq Tareen, Dr. Shahzad Waseem and Bahramand Khan Tangi, Secretary Interior, Inspector General of Police Islamabad, Chairman Capital Development Authority (CDA), Commander Frontier Constabulary (FC), Chairman National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) and representatives of other relevant ministries.
The resolution, read by Rehman Malik urged that the government of Pakistan should go to International Court of Justice, highlighting violations of human rights, brutalities, atrocities and genocide of Muslim population in Kashmir. It is a fit case for Indian Prime Minister Modi to be tried as a War Criminal of mass killing by Indian Army troops duly backed by anti-Kashmiri policies of Indian Prime Minister.
The Jammu & Kashmir Peoples National Party (J&K PNP) on Thursday categorically rejected Indian move of revoking the special status of the disputed Jammu & Kashmir state by repealing Article 370 and 35-A of its constitution. Addressing a news conference here at the Kashmir Press Club, PNP Chairman PNP Raja Zulfiqar Ahmed Advocate said it was a suicidal act as India had invited her own death by scrapping the internationally-acknowledged special status of the occupied Jammu & Kashmir state.
Flanked by his party leaders Ghalib Bostan Advocate and Aslam Watnoof, he said the Indian held Jammu & Kashmir state had been turned into the world’s largest prison ever since the revocation of its special status four days ago.
