50 nations support Pakistan on Kashmir issue
Published: 04:09 PM, 11 September 2019
Pakistan got support from more than 50 countries across the world on Kashmir issue. They have endorsed Pakistan's position on the Kashmir issue. In a joint statement on Tuesday, the countries called on India to stop human rights violations in Kashmir.
Pakistan recently complained about the human rights situation in Kashmir at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland. Soon afterwards the countries called the Indian government.
In this regard, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said in a tweet on Wednesday that Pakistan has made a historic joint statement on behalf of more than fifty countries to the UN Human Rights Council on the Kashmir issue.
He described it as Pakistan's biggest achievement at the UN Human Rights Council. In a joint statement, more than 50 countries of the United Nations and the OIC have urged India to end human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Central Government, led by the BJP-led nation, took away the rights and privileges of Kashmir's autonomy by repealing Article 370 of the Indian Constitution on August 05. The bill was passed in Parliament to convert Ladakh and Kashmir into two separate union territories. A large number of additional troops have been deployed across Kashmir in the wake of this move. The restrictions were issued. Hundreds of activists were arrested there.
This step has been taken for development and it is claimed by India on the country's' entire internal affairs', but Pakistan says Kashmiris' human rights are being violated there.
Pakistan appealed to the UN to protest the move after Delhi's amendment. But it did not work, but Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi wrote a letter to the Security Council. Later, China, called for a meeting of the Security Council. However, the council member states denied the official statement on this issue. They later complained of human rights abuses to the UN Human Rights Council.
The United Nations said in a joint statement: "Human rights and humanitarian situation in the Indian-administered Kashmir have been deteriorating, especially since taking action on August 5. Now there needs to be urgent attention of the Human Rights Council and other human rights organizations. '
The statement added, "The international community should call for the protection of basic human rights and respect for the people of India-ruled Jammu and Kashmir in agreement with the UN Charter, Security Council Resolution, human rights standards and international law." Especially about their right to life, liberty and security. '
The statement also called for immediate withdrawal of curbs and curfew on Kashmir contact and release of political leaders. In addition, there have been calls for the ban of excessive force and gun use and unrestricted access to international media and human rights organizations.
"We support the peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir crisis through implementation of the UN Security Council resolution," the statement said.
