Pakistan condemns India’s domicile law in IoK, calls it ‘reprehensible’
Pakistan rejected the new domicile law in occupied Kashmir and found India’s conduct ‘reprehensible’ saying the neighbor took advantage of the situation when the world is busy battling the coronavirus pandemic.
In a press release issued by the Foreign Office (FO) on Thursday, Pakistan said that India’s so-called Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Order 2020 is yet another illegal step toward settling non-Kashmiris in IoK by modifying domicile legislation.
The press release went on to say that this Indian government act is a continuation of their unconstitutional and unilateral actions against Kashmiris since August 5, 2019.
FO added that the Kashmiris have opposed the law and would never “allow such blatant usurpation of their constitutional rights and attempts to change their demographics and distinct identity.”
Pakistan has called on the international community and the United Nations to take note of its repeated violations of international law and hold India accountable. The statement reiterated that in IoK, Pakistan will continue to stress the terrorism of India.
“No matter what its tactics, India will never be able to break the will of the Kashmiri people. Nor will India succeed in its nefarious designs to subjugate the Kashmiris against their wishes,” statement concluded.
