OIC commission condemns new Indian law in Indian occupied Kashmir

The Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC) of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemned a new Indian law presented in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK). The Indian government presented the ‘Jammu and Kashmir Grant of Domicile Certificate (Procedure)’ rules recently. The IPHRC members said that their previous concerns had been proven right in recent times.

The OIC officials said that the Indian government was trying to make Muslims minority on their own lands in IOK. India wants to demolish the self-determination right of Muslims in the disputed area. India is allegedly taking steps to enforce the change in population in the region to achieve its goals. They said, “It is an extreme violation of the human rights of the residents of the OIK.”

The international human rights organization ensured the protection of human rights in the disputed territory through several agreements. The OIC officials said, “Article 27 and 49 of the Geneva Convention ensure the protection of human rights in Indian Occupied Kashmir.” The Commission said, “The issue has been getting more complex. It has already taken the lives of thousands of innocent Kashmiris.”

The Commission said that Kashmiris were facing the political, economic, and communication barriers through a planned lockdown. The international community also condemned the behavior of the authorities in India since August 5, 2020. The Commission added that the Indian officials could not suppress the self-determination right of Kashmiris even after the deployment of over 5 million security personnel.

The IOK officials issued a notification two days ago in which they clarified important terms for getting a domicile certificate. Domicile certificate is an important and mandatory document for getting jobs at the federal level. According to the new law, the permanent residents of the IOK can acquire domicile certificate from respective authorities.
