OIC’s HR body condemns India’s anti-Kashmir domicile law

Jeddah, April 04 (KMS): The Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC) has slammed the new domicile law introduced by India in

occupied Kashmir with the intention to effect a change in the demographic composition of the territory. The new law paves the way for the Indian citizens to get permanently settled and get jobs in the occupied territory. The OIC’s IPHRC in a tweet said, “The agency condemns the promulgation of illegal ‘Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Order 2020’ by India which is an attempt to alter demographic and geographic status of Indian occupied Kashmir.”
It stressed that the latest Indian action was a violation of international human rights and humanitarian laws, including the Fourth Geneva Convention, OIC and UN Security Council resolutions. It demanded of India to stop human rights violations in occupied Kashmir, abolish draconian laws and give the Kashmiris their right to self-determination.
