Jeddah, 20th May: Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) strongly rejects India’s new domicile law in Occupied Kashmir.
According to details, the OIC’s Permanent Independent Human Rights Commission has rejected India’s domicile law in occupied Kashmir. A statement issued by the OIC said that India’s new domicile law is in violation of the council’s resolutions. The United Nations and the international community should put pressure on India to withdraw the domicile law.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has demanded that the international community ensure implementation of UN resolutions on Occupied Kashmir. Earlier in the day, Foreign Office spokesperson Ayesha Farooqi said that Pakistan rejects the Jammu and Kashmir Grant Domicile Certificate Procedure 2020, adding that the new domicile law is illegal and against the UN Security Council resolutions.
It may be recalled that after the abolition of the special status of Occupied Kashmir by India on August 5, 2019, the Civil Services Act has been implemented in Jammu and Kashmir, according to which a person residing in Jammu and Kashmir for 15 years can claim the Occupied Territory in his domicile will be able to declare the homeland.
The Act clarifies that a person declaring the occupied area in the domicile as his native area must have resided in the central region of Jammu and Kashmir for 15 years or studied for a period of 7 years or attended class 10 or 12 at an educational institution located in the area and took the exam.
