Secretary General, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Iyad Ameen Madani addressing a joint press conference with Adviser to PM on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz expressed serious concerns over human rights violations in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) and supported Pakistan’s stance on the issue. 

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) was founded in 1969 consisting of 57 member states. Its work was to safeguard and protect the interests of the Muslim world in the spirit of promoting international peace and harmony. Unfortunately, the OIC is not playing its vital role in this regard. 

Human rights have been violated in Kashmir by India for many decades. The OIC just issued statements of condemnation and has never taken the issue seriously. The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) should convene its emergency meeting to discuss the Kashmir issue and highlight the brutalities of Indian forces in the valley. The OIC has permanent delegations to the United Nations and the European Union. I request to Iyad Ameen Madani, Secretary General OIC to come forward and put the pressure on UNO for peaceful solution according to its resolutions to give the right of self-determination to Kashmiris.
