MEA asks Pakistan to immediately vacate the illegal occupations in POK
India had registered a strong protest against Pakistan’s Supreme Court’s order on the ‘Gilgit-Baltistan’ area which is under illegal occupation of Pakistan. Prior to that, the Supreme court of Pakistan had permitted elections in the regions of Gilgit-Baltistan.
The Ministry of External Affairs said that it was clearly conveyed that the entire Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh, including the areas of Gilgit and Baltistan, are an integral part of India by virtue of its fully legal and irrevocable accession. The MEA stated, “Govt of Pakistan or its judiciary has no locus standi on territories illegally and forcibly occupied by it. India completely rejects such actions and continued attempts to bring material changes in Pakistan occupied areas of the Indian territory of Jammu & Kashmir.” The MEA further stated that Pakistan should immediately vacate the parts of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
Pakistan Sponsored Terrorism in Kashmir
Pakistan has always been more inclined towards delivering terrorism on the Indian Soil right from the birth of the Islamic state. Even during the grave health crisis of coronavirus by which Pakistan is grossly affected, the country is not diverting from its prior occupation of terrorism. Reports of ceasefire violations across the border have still being heard that envisages a routine for the Pakistan military.
Last Sunday, five security personnel of Indian Armed forces were martyred in an encounter in Handwara where two terrorists were also eliminated. One of the two terrorists was identified as Haider, a Pakistani terrorist, and a top Lashkar-e-Taiba leader.
