PM Imran further said New Delhi’s attempt to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir was a war crime under the Fourth Geneva Convention. He added that the nearly month-long curfew in the occupied valley and the use of force against Kashmiri civilians were “all part of the ethnic cleansing agenda of the Modi government and its illegal annexation of IOK”.
