ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Sunday rejected the “irresponsible” remarks by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs regarding the tweets made by Prime Minister Imran Khan, wherein he condemned the attempts to change the demography of occupied Kashmir.
“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,” the Foreign Office spokesperson said in a statement.
She said that India’s incessant regurgitation of the claim that Occupied Jammu and Kashmir was an “internal affair” would neither turn this falsehood into truth nor make this illegality valid.
The spokesperson said the Kashmir was 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 and 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 IoK and the RSS-inspired Hindutva agenda being imposed by the BJP government,” the statement added.
It should also be clear to India that, for their part, Pakistan and its leadership would never flinch in their support for the just and legitimate cause of the Kashmiri people, she added
