After years of denial, Pakistan admits that Kashmir is India’s in a grand Freudian slip at Geneva

It is very rare for Pakistani leaders to acknowledge that Jammu and Kashmir is a state of India, and the Pakistan foreign minister did so in front of international media

While Pakistan always insists that Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory and refers to the area under Indian administration as India Occupied Kashmir, its foreign minister termed it as Indian state at an international forum.

While talking to media in Geneva, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said, ‘if life has returned to normalcy, why India does not allow international media, international NGOs and civil society organisations to go into the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir and see for themselves what the reality is. They’re lying through their teeth, and once the curfew is lifted, the reality comes out, the world will wake up to the catastrophe that is underway right now.’ It is very rare for Pakistani leaders to acknowledge that Jammu and Kashmir is a state of India, and the Pakistan foreign minister did so in front of international media while trying to internationalise India’s decision to abrogate 370.

Qureshi is in Geneva to attend a session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC). Addressing the session, he alleged human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir by India, and called for the formation of a joint investigation committee to study the situation in the state. “The basic rights of people of India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir are being trampled with impunity by India. The people of this occupied land are suffering systematic and serial violations of their fundamental rights”, he said.
