India’s claim on Kashmir, saying that it belongs to them was rejected by Pakistan on Friday.
“Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally recognised disputed state as per UN Security Council resolutions,” a Foreign Office statement said. “India has denied the oppressed people of Indian Occupied Kashmir their right to self-determination that its founding fathers had pledged at the august forum of the UNSC and is enshrined in its resolutions.”
“India claims to be a democracy, but has blocked all public speech, mobile phones, internet, cable TV and print and social media in IOK. Strict curfew remains in place in most parts of IOK
Kashmiris in IOK are facing the worst form of state terrorism at the hands of Indian occupation forces. Innocent civilians including women, children and elderly are facing terrible atrocities, but are standing up to this reprehensible repression,” the Foreign Office said.
It further said that India must allow the holding of a free, fair and impartial plebiscite to determine the will of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
