OIC to discuss condemnable illegal developments regarding IoK: FO

Islamabad (Agencies): A meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s contact group on Kashmir will discuss the recent move by India to end the occupied valley’s special status.

“Meeting of the OCI contact group on Jammu & Kashmir is being held in Jeddah today, on the recent condemnable illegal developments regarding IoK. FM QureshiPTI will lead the Pakistan delegation to the meeting,” Foreign Office Spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said in a tweet.

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan, in his address to the joint session of the Parliament, feared that there would be ethnic cleansing in Kashmir. He urged the international community to act against the racist politics of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).

"They (BJP) have a racist ideology. In Kashmir, they have acted according to their ideology, against their constitution, Supreme Court verdict and United Nations resolutions," he said and added, “Occupied Kashmir has turned into a graveyard and the movement for freedom can not be crushed by force.”

PM Imran said Pakistan wants better ties with neighbouring countries but the incumbent Indian government was following the RSS’s fascist ideology.

Referring to his earlier olive branch to New Delhi, the prime minister said the country strongly conveyed to India that it was not involved in the Pulwama attack.

“But they used Pakistan as a scapegoat,” he said and added that the Indian pilot was also returned as a goodwill gesture to convey that Islamabad did not have any ill intentions.
