Earlier on February 5, as part of Pakistan’s sustained diplomatic outreach, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had approached the president of the Security Council and UN Secretary General to apprise them of India’s continuing gross and systematic violations of human rights in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

In his letter, he had underscored that all unilateral and illegal measures taken by India in the occupied territory of Jammu and Kashmir in violation of international law, including relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council and the 4th Geneva Convention, such as changes in the demographic structure, usurpation of land and farcical “elections”, were null and void.
