London, August 15 (KMS): The President of London-based Jammu and Kashmir Council for Human Rights (JKCHR), Dr Nazir Gilani, in view of the scrapping of Articles 370 and 35-A of Indian Constitutions, has urged the Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to reiterate Pakistan’s suggestion to the United Nations Security Council for taking steps to ensure deployment of UN forces in occupied Kashmir.

Pakistan had suggested in the 761st meeting of the UN Security Council in January 1957 about the deployment of the UN forces in the occupied territory.

Dr Nazir Gilani in a statement issued in London, referring to the support by the Philippines delegate regarding the Pakistan proposal in the UN in January 1957, said that the Philippines delegate had said that for safe and sure peace UN forces should be deployed in the territory.

He said that the Philippines delegate had further said that the suggestion had no link with the superiority of India or Pakistan if the UN forces were deployed temporary and for a limited period.

Dr Nazir Gilani said that the August 05 Indian decision to make Laddakh and Jammu and Kashmir two separate territories of the Indian union was violation of Jan 30, 1951 UN Security Council resolution. He further said that it was also violation of the October 27, 1947 agreement between Dogra Maharaja and Governor General that the people of Kashmir, after restoration of peace, would themselves decide for their future destination.

Dr Nazir Gilani said that before the August 5 action, India had imposed curfew in the occupied territory and suspended the sources of communication and contacts, which continued till now. He said that Pakistan was an important party in the Kashmir dispute.

Welcoming the seven-member committee constituted by Prime Minister Imran Khan, he said that it should be active and the representatives of Kashmiri people should also be included in it.
