Senate Passes Resolution On Kashmir : Urges Int’l Community To Review Engagement With India

The Senate unanimously passed a resolution urging the international community to review its engagement with India which is disregarding international humanitarian laws and resolutions on Kashmir dispute.

The resolution moved by Leader of House Azam Nazeer Tarar recommended the government to expedite its diplomatic efforts to continue to highlight the Kashmir dispute at the UN Human Rights Council.

The resolution strongly rejected India’s illegal and unilateral actions of 5th August 2019 saying these are in direct violations of the UN Security Council resolutions and are aimed at changing the demographic structure of IIOJK, suppressing the realization of the inalienable right to self-determination of Kashmiris as well as violating their civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.

Condemning Indian atrocities including extra judicial killings and demolition of homes and private properties as a form of collective punishment in the occupied valley, the resolution deplored change in the status of Urdu language associated with Kashmiri Muslims and their identity.

It demanded resolution of Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people and the UNSC resolutions.
