India responds to OIC resolution, this is what MEA said

After the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) criticised India on the issue of Kashmir and also adopted a resolution to this effect,
India has reiterated that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of nation.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), it need be mentioned, is a grouping of 57 Islamic countries.

The resolution came just a day after Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj OIC as the guest of honour, calling out “states which shelter terrorists”.

In a sharply-worded statement on Saturday, the OIC hit out at what it called “intensified Indian barbarities since July 2016”, “Indian terrorism” and “illegal detentions and disappearances” in Jammu and Kashmir.

This comes after India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had urged the OIC to “act together” to combat global terrorism amid heightened tensions between India and Pakistan triggered by the Pulwama terror attack last month.

She also said terrorism, which was destabilising regions and putting the world at great peril, was not against any religion.

In response, Pakistan’s Foreign Office said that the OIC meeting of foreign ministers had concluded with a resolution that “supported” Pakistan on the Kashmir issue.
