Islamabad, May 21, 2020 (PPI-OT): At a virtual meeting of OIC Ambassadors to the UN, Pakistan has warned that Muslims of India and occupied Jammu and Kashmir are in grave danger. In his remarks, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN, Munir Akram said that the aim of the BJP-RSS government in India is to cleanse the country of all vestiges of its Islamic heritage.
He said that expatriate Hindu extremists actively promoted Islamophobia agenda and even insulted their host countries. The ambassador said that while world’s attention was riveted on the Covid-19 crisis, the Modi Government promulgated arbitrary regulations to allow non-Kashmiris to acquire Kashmiri domicile, opening the door to a demographic flooding designed to change the Muslim majority State into a Hindu majority territory.
Several OIC Ambassadors including Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, Azerbaijan, Qatar, Malaysia and Egypt welcomed Pakistan’s proposal and need for a concerted OIC position on Islamophobia at the United Nations.
