“These efforts are being made to try to convert the Muslim majority in Jammu and Kashmir into a minority to preempt the results of the (proposed) UN administered plebiscite,” said the statement.

Aziz has stressed that the non-implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions is leading to a grave human tragedy in the Valley, added the statement.

“It is on¬ly by the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions that we will be able to end the immense sufferings of millio¬ns of Kashmiris in Jammu and Kashmir and bring pe¬ace and stability to South Asia,” the report quoted the letter.
