OIC asks India to lift IOK siege, rescind annexation

London, September 26 (KMS): The British opposition Labour Party at its annual conference in Brighton passed a resolution seeking intervention by the international community in Jammu and Kashmir. The resolution asked for the UN led-referendum to resolve the decades old Kashmir dispute.

The resolution submitted by Blackburn, Dudley North, Keighley, Stockport and Wakefield constituency Labour parties condemns the recent actions of the Indian government in the territory.

Members of the Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation’s Contact Group on Kashmir at a meeting held on the sidelines of 74th session of the UN General Assembly in New York, expressed complete solidarity with the suffering Kashmiri people and asked India to lift repressive lockdown in IOK and rescind its illegal annexation. Briefing journalists after the OIC ministerial meeting, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi termed the unanimously adopted communique as a positive development.

Kashmiri representative, Ishtiaq Hameed while addressing the meeting of OIC Contact Group said India is committing massive human rights violations in the Kashmir Valley and hiding its crimes by not giving any access to independent media or observers.

Meanwhile, New York’s iconic Times Square lit up in show of solidarity with people of Occupied Kashmir ahead of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the United Nations General Assembly session. The Pakistani community sponsored a screen advertisement to highlight the grave human rights violations being carried out by Indian security forces in the Muslim majority region.
