OIC has no locus standi to comment on Kashmir

India Pak

Scroll.in has not been able to independently to confirm Pakistan's comments on behalf of the OIC.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation is the global body consisting of 57-nations representing the religion on behalf of the world.

"The OIC in its statement+ contains factually incorrect and misleading references to the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir". Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inseparable part of India, it added. Pakistan is a member of the group.

With Pakistan mulling to raise the Kashmir issue at the United Nations General Assembly in NY, a top Indian diplomat on Sunday said while Islamabad is fixated on the same matter, India is focusing on a progressive approach, adding that raising the issue would be like "Miyan ki daud masjid Tak" for them, a reference to a Hindi idiom.

Sumit Seth delivered his response using the "right of reply", after Pakistan on behalf of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation made a statement. India absolutely rejects all such references.

India supported the discussion in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on the "Responsibility to Protect" and the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity as the world body takes up the issue after 12 years in the backdrop of a looming crisis in South Asia over the Rohingya issue, among others.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said the highlight of Swaraj's trip to NY would be her speech at the UNGA.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj represent India at the annual UNGA session at United Nations. "We strongly advise the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation to refrain from making such references in future".
