ISLAMABAD, May 6 (AsiaFreePress): Pakistan has rejected the report of so-called Indian Delimitation Commission for Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The Indian Charge d’Affaires was summoned to Foreign Ministry in Islamabad and handed over a demarche, conveying the categorical rejection of the report.
In a statement, the Foreign Office spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmad said the so-called Indian commission is aimed at disenfranchising and disempowering the Muslim majority population of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He said the Indian side was conveyed that this entire exercise is farcical and has already been rejected by the cross-section of political parties in the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The spokesperson said through this effort, India only wants to lend legitimacy to its illegal actions of August 5, 2019.
It was emphasized that the ulterior motive of the Indian government is evident from the fact that, under the garb of so-called delimitation, the representation of Muslims in the re-designated constituencies has been reduced to their disadvantage.
