Further adding that, “Pakistan will continue to highlight Indian atrocities and the illegality of their actions at UNGA74 and apprise every nation of the plight of Kashmiris. It is our hope and our endeavor to shake the world into action.”
Talking about Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, he also told, “Kashmir: the world is listening. Yesterday, Erdogan in his address at UNGA74 said a resolution to the Kashmir conflict was essential for the peace & stability of South Asia. Today he told the world that IOJK has turned into an open prison & he fears for bloodshed there.”
The OIC has consistently shared our concerns over the gross violations in IOK & the world’s organisations on Human Rights, Civil Society & multi faith groups have unequivocally condemned the ongoing brutality in IOK & called for lifting of the curfew which is 51 days old today.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi added, “Yesterday, first ever conference on Kashmir as ‘oldest conflict in the world’ was held in the French @AssembleeNat by @Sempastoushp where reps from think tanks and orgs discussed the Kashmir dispute from historical perspective, current developments & the future of Kashmir.”
