Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz has urged the international community to take due cognizance of Indian atrocities against innocent Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and hold India accountable under international law and relevant human rights conventions.

He said this in a special message for the online conference titled: "Kashmir: Regional and International Dimensions" organized by Istanbul University, Turkey.

The Information Minister said United Nations and the international community must take immediate action to stop India from changing the demography and distinct identity of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

He said that the recent promulgation of "Jammu and Kashmir Grant of Domicile Certificate (Procedure), 2020" by Indian rulers  is clearly aimed at changing the demographic structure of Kashmir and undermining the exercise by the Kashmiri people of their right to self-determination through free and impartial plebiscite as per the relevant UNSC Resolutions.

The Information Minister said Pakistan, under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, will continue highlighting the plight of Kashmiri people at all international fora till the realization of their inalienable right to self-determination in accordance with the UNSC Resolutions.

He said India continues to pursue its expansionist designs under the cover of coronavirus pandemic.
