BJP leader Ashwani Chrungoo Thursday said the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation has no locus standi on matters related to Kashmir.
He said any sort of intervention by any external force is rejected lock, stock and barrel.
In a statement issued, Chrungoo said that Jammu and Kashmir is a settled issue. "The division of Jammu and Kashmir state into two union territories is a historical step and it paves way of democratic and constitutional institutions in the two UTs to thrive and deliver to the benefit of the people".
He said that the OIC needs to learn lessons from the stand taken by Saudi Arabia, UAE, Indonesia and other important Islamic countries which termed abrogation of Article 370 as an internal matter of India last year. "Raking up the human rights issue of the people in Jammu and Kashmir, the OIC should have instead talked about the human rights violations of the Hindu-Sikh minorities in the UT of J&K perpetrated by the terrorists for the last more than three decades".
Chrungoo appealed to the Government of India to take all necessary steps to translate the will expressed in the Parliamentary Resolution of 1994. "The government should also designate the areas under Chinese illegal occupation as "China occupied Ladakh" like Pakistan occupied Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.
