Islamabad, Pakistan today accused India of settling non-Kashmiris in Jammu in an attempt to change the demographic composition of the region.
Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria made the allegations at the weekly press briefing here.
“Reportedly, PDP-BJP regime… In violation of UNSC Resolutions, has started issuing domicile certificates to non-Kashmiri Hindus in Jammu region. The move is part of the regime’s nefarious designs to change the demographic composition of the territory,” he said.
“This act of bringing material change in the disputed territory of Jammu & Kashmir is a blatant violation of UNSC Resolutions on Kashmir. Kashmiris have hopes that international community and relevant international organizations will call India to the account,” he alleged.
He said that at an International European Kashmir Conference in Denmark last month, representatives of 500 political and social organisations and NGOs adopted a declaration, inter alia, seeking release of arrested people.
Zakaria alleged that India has been violating UNSC
resolutions on Kashmir by calling the Valley its integral part.
He said, “Indian interference in Pakistan is a clear violation of the provisions of UN charter pertaining to the respect for the sovereignty of its members.”
He also said Pakistan strongly opposes the construction of Jewish settlements on Palestinian land, and condemns all illegal activities of Israeli government, including settlements, separation wall, excavations beneath the Al Aqsa mosque and forceful eviction of Palestinians from their homes.
