New Delhi trying to alter Kashmir demography: Pakistan


Pakistan has accused India of trying to alter the demography of Jammu and Kashmir in an attempt to drive Muslims into a minority in the region.
“The Indian policy of killing innocent Kashmiris is part of a strategy to break the spirit of Kashmiris; alter the demography in Jammu & Kashmir; and convert it into a Muslim minority from an overwhelming Muslim majority state,” Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakria told reporters at the weekly news briefing.
“To that end, besides killing Kashmiris in scores, other measures that India has taken are settling non-Kashmiris, accommodating Indian forces personnel, who have been committing crimes against humanity, exclusive colonies for political manipulation, etc.,” Zakria alleged.
The spokesperson said Kashmiris had been promised the right to self-determination through a free, fair and transparent plebiscite under the UN auspices in line with the relevant UNSC resolutions.
He recalled that former adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz had written a letter to the UNSG, underscoring the Indian attempts. “We expect the international community to take practical steps to halt Indian violation of the UNSC resolutions on Kashmir and its international obligations.” AGENCIES
