Pak accuses India of changing Kashmir’s demography


Islamabad: Pakistan accused India of deliberately altering the demography of India by bringing in residents from outside to reside in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chawdhury accused the Indian Government of turning Muslim Majority Kashmir into a minority by dividing the population on the grounds of ethnicity and communal grounds.

He said, “No elections in Indian-held Kashmir could be a substitute to the plebiscite under the auspices of the UN.” He was speaking to the ambassadors of countries under Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) who are posted in Pakistan.

He referred to the actions taken by the Indian Forces to suppress his so called ‘Indigenous Kashmiri’ movement against Indian Rule. He said that the OIC, a body of 57 countries with the world’s one-fifth population, could influence India to de-militarize Kashmir.
