ISLAMABAD: The OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) on Tuesday condemned India’s state terrorism in held Kashmir and demanded of it to implement the UN Security Council resolutions on the disputed valley.

The demand and condemnation came during the 44th session of the CFM held in Abidjan, Republic of Cote d’Ivoire. The two-day session concluded on Tuesday.

The 56-member council – through a unanimous resolution – also called upon the United Nations and the international community to play their due role in stopping the continuing bloodshed in the Indian-Occupied Kashmir (IOK).

The resolution noted that Kashmir remains a core dispute between India and Pakistan, and its early resolution is imperative for bringing peace in South Asia.

The council expressed its support to the widespread indigenous movement of the Kashmiris for their promised right to self-determination and observed that the just struggle cannot be equated with terrorism.

It also deplored the continued use of live ammunition and pellet guns by Indian forces causing mass blindness and killings of innocent Kashmiris.

The foreign ministers condemned India for illegal detention of Kashmiris and incarceration of Hurriyat leaders. They also paid rich tributes to the Kashmiris for their heroic struggle for realising their inalienable right to self-determination.

They also noted with deep concern that the Indian attempts to bring demographic changes in IOK is in violation of its obligations under the UN resolutions and the international law.

The foreign ministers of the Muslim countries urged India to immediately stop the human rights violations in IOK and resolve the longstanding dispute by implementing the UN Security Council resolutions.

    Indian army has been trying to suppress the Kashmiris’ demand for independence, for more than half a century. India must know, Kasmiri’s protests may not continue for ever. Kashmiris may think of armed resistance; as in Afghanistan. Such resistance may not be confined to Kashmir. It may spread widely, in different shapes.Recommend
