Islamabad, May 24: Pakistan foreign office (FO) has on Thursday warned India against any change to the constitutional status of occupied Kashmir, reminding that India’s high-handed tactics couldn’t suppress freedom movement.

According to Dawn news reports, Pakistan said any of such move by India would violate the United Nations security council (UNSC) resolution on the Kashmir dispute and such moves cannot be meant to be implemented until a UN plebiscite is held in line with the UNSC resolutions.

During a briefing at the weekly media, FO spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal said, “Pakistan opposes any move which violates the United Nations Security Council resolutions on the Jammu & Kashmir dispute. In principle, there cannot be any change in the status of Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir until a UN-administ­ered plebiscite is held in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions.”

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) won the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on May 23 for the second straight term in power.

Earlier, the party had vowed to revoke Article 370 of the Indian constitution which offers a special status to occupied Kashmir.

FO condemned the recent house arrest of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Syed Ali Shah Gilani, leaders of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, as well as, the imposition of a state of emergency in Srinagar on May 21 in order to prevent a protest at Eidgah towards the Martyrs’ Graveyard.ja

“We also condemn the illegal detention of APHC leader, Masarrat Aalam Bhatt, under the draconian Public Safety Act, which is the worst example of lawlessness and human rights violations in IOK,” he added.

The spokesperson said such imposition of curbs, restrictions and caging the Kashmiri leadership can neither kill the reality of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute and the ideology that runs deep in the heart of every single citizen of IOK, nor will it wash away memories of the martyrdom of great leaders and all the martyrs of the Kashmir struggle from the minds of Kashmiris.
