Pakistan Fears Genocide In Kashmir After India Revokes Article 370

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Monday said there was a threat of genocide and ethnic cleansing in Jammu and Kashmir after India revoked Article 370.

Qureshi said Pakistan would request and appeal to the United Nations, OIC, friendly countries and human rights organisations not to remain silent on this issue.

According to Qureshi, the situation in Jammu and Kashmir was more serious than before.

“We will consult our legal experts and I believe the freedom movement in Kashmir will gain momentum,” he added.

“There are several resolutions of the United Nations Security Council on this and they have accepted this as a disputed territory…Indian PM Vajpayee had accepted this as a disputed territory,” said the foreign minister.

Qureshi said the move by India showed they no longer had any hope from Kashmiris. “Those Kashmiris who had voted for them in the past have also announced their separation from them.”

Qureshi also stressed that Pakistan like before would continue to support the Kashmiri people and history would prove India’s decision wrong.  Taking to Twitter later, Qureshi stated that the country’s stance on the Kashmir issue would be highlighted in meetings with the US delegation and international community at large.

“Pakistan reaffirms it’s abiding commitment to the Kashmir cause and its political, diplomatic and moral support to the people of Jammu and Kashmir for the realization of their inalienable right to self-determination.”
