Situation in IIOJK, Palestine is huge injustice of history: Prime Minister 

Islamabad, August 05, 2021 (PPI-OT):Prime Minister Imran Khan says the situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and Palestine is a huge injustice of history and it is important for the OIC and the world to take steps to correct it. Talking to a delegation of the OIC Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission led by its Chair Dr Saeed Al-Ghufli in Islamabad today (Thursday), he expressed grave concern on the egregious violations of human rights in the valley which have assumed alarming proportions during the last two years.

He said the Kashmiri Muslims risked losing their majority and distinct identity due to the demographic changes being effected in the occupied territory, which was in violation of the 4th Geneva Convention and tantamount to war crimes. Appreciating the work of IPHRC in highlighting India’s gross, systematic and widespread human rights abuses in IIOJK, he said that the people of IIOJK were thankful to the Commission for understanding their plight and bringing it to the attention of OIC and the international community.

Imran Khan reiterated the urgent need for the reversal of all illegal and unilateral steps taken by India on and after 5th August 2019 along with an immediate end to the human rights violations in IIOJK. The Prime Minister also spoke about rising Islamophobia and stressed the need for the Muslim Ummah to make collective endeavours to counter this scourge.

The IPHRC delegation is on a visit to Islamabad and Azad Jammu and Kashmir in compliance with the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers’ mandate to assess the deteriorating human rights situation in IIOJK. The Commission has established a Standing Mechanism for that purpose, which regularly monitors and reports on the dire state of human rights in IIOJK.
