‘OIC has no locus standi to comment on J&K, misused by Pakistan’: India rejects OIC’s statement at UNHRC

-

- Advertisment -

India, on Tuesday rejected the statement of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Jammu and Kashmir, saying that the body had no locus standi to comment on the issue. India also criticised Pakistan for “misusing the august forum”.

“We reject the reference to union territory of Jammu and Kashmir in the OIC statement. It has no locus standi to comment on matters related to J&K, which is an integral and inalienable part of India,” Pawankumar Badhe, First Secretary, Permanent Mission of India to UN, said at the UNHRC, as quoted by ANI.

“Pakistan’s deliberate misuse of this august forum for its malicious propaganda against India, aimed at diverting Council’s attention from its own serious violations of human rights, has remained a constant,” India said at the UN.

Badhe said that the OIC continues to allow itself to be exploited by Pakistan to indulge in anti-India propaganda. He called it an “regrettable” act.

Badhe also criticised Pakistan for “state-sponsored cross-border terrorism and end institutionalised violation of human rights of its minority and other communities.”
