ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Munir Akram has expressed the hope that world will respond critically to the steps taken by the Indian government in occupied Kashmir and over controversial citizenship law.
“Pakistan through effective policy has exposed Hindu ideology being pursued by the Modi government,” he said talking to a local news channel on Tuesday.
Munir Akram said United Nations Security Council had discussed Kashmir issue twice and now Pakistan was making the efforts to bring policy shift of member states besides highlighting the sentiments of people in the occupied Kashmir.
The European Parliament is set to debate and vote on a scathing resolution against annexation of occupied Kashmir by India in clear violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions.
Out of more than 700 members of the EU Parliament, more than 600 have moved six resolutions on both the issues.
The diplomatic offensive by the EU against India came ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Brussels for India-EU summit in March.
The resolution which will be put up for voting on Jan 30, also condemns enforcement of new citizenship laws by New Delhi that discriminate against Muslims.
On Jan 9, the ambassadors of the European countries had refused to visit the occupied Kashmir arranged by the Indian government for the envoys based in New Delhi.
According to the diplomatic sources, the envoys from European countries had said they did not want a guided tour of Kashmir, rather they wanted to meet people freely of their own choosing.
Indian newspaper The Hindu had reported that the EU diplomats had told the Indian government that they wanted to travel in the occupied valley more freely and unescorted.
