India violates int’l law by repealing articles in IIOJK: FM Qureshi

ANKARA: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that India has violated the UN Security Council resolutions, international law and the 4th Geneva Convention by repealing the articles in its constitution that ensure the protection of the demographic structure and special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

In an interview with the Turkish news agency, Qureshi said Pakistan considers the Indian act as unilateral and illegal.

Highlighting that the removal of article 35A is related to the protection of the demographic structure in the region, he said we feel that there is a design for demographic restructuring to convert the Muslim majority in this state into a minority.

In 2019, India ended minimal autonomy of Jammu and Kashmir under Articles 370 and 35A of its constitution after putting the region of around 12 million people under military siege and cutting communications with the outer world.
