BJP asks OIC to take note of 'oppression' in PaK

Jehangir accused Pakistan of changing demography in Gilgit and Baltistan and “Islamabad left no stone unturned to settle outsiders there.”

Reacting sharply to Pakistan’s accusation that India was trying to change demography of Jammu and Kashmir, BJP Thursday said the world community should take note of the oppressed people of Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK).

“OIC should take note of the oppressed people of Pakistan administered Kashmir, Gilgit and Baltistan. Pakistan couldn’t hold a single free and fair election in these areas for the past sixty years and imposed rulers on these hapless people,” BJP state spokesman Khalid Jehangir said in a statement here.

Jehangir accused Pakistan of changing demography in Gilgit and Baltistan and “Islamabad left no stone unturned to settle outsiders there.” 

“Kashmiris have full faith in Indian democracy and overwhelming participation of the people in recent assembly polls is an ample proof of it,” he added.

BJP spokesman advised Pakistan to first set its own house in order and then poke its nose into Jammu and Kashmir. “People of Kashmir have realized that Pakistan is not their well wisher and Pakistanis are not their friends,” he added.  

Jehangir said Pakistan “orchestrated bloodshed” in Jammu and Kashmir and fought “proxy war”, and used Kashmiri youth for making its plans work in JK. “Pakistan has failed to keep the pot boiling due to the befitting reply given by the security forces and people of Kashmir foiling their sinister designs. After failing in all the errands, now Pakistan is trying to raise non-issues to ensure that peace and normalcy are not restored in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.
