The employer of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Thursday said the Jammu and Kashmir issue “is near our hearts” and “linking it with terrorism is a violation of international regulation”.
“The Jammu and Kashmir crises are close to our hearts and are one of the most crucial issues on the time table of the company of Islamic Cooperation, and therefore our commitment to the Jammu and Kashmir cause has been and could remain firm,” said OIC Secretary-General Dr. Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen.
He said Kashmir movement is a “valid conflict” of the people for the belief of their rights and independence and fully in conformity with the resolution of the United Nations and international regulation.
“Attempts to suppress or degrade it by means of linking it to terrorism are, consequently, futile and in violation of United Nations resolutions and International regulation,” he stated during his speech to the Ministerial Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir at the sidelines of the 14th Islamic Summit within the holy town of Mecca.
Batting for a speak to solve the difficulty, the OIC Secretary General said: “I desire that a proper speak between Pakistan and India will resume, that allows you to be the high-quality framework for addressing all fantastic problems, specifically the Jammu and Kashmir dispute,” he stated.
Calling Kashmir as a vital time table of the OIC, Dr. Yousef also asked India to “stop” the usage of pressure in opposition to unarmed Kashmiri humans.
“The OIC General Secretariat has persisted to focus on in all its engagements inside the international forums that it is vital to make certain that India ceases to apply force towards innocent and defenseless civilians in Kashmir and forestall its disregard for human rights laws,” he stated.
The General Secretary said that OIC will continue to work toward a nonviolent approach to the Kashmir conflict.
“The OIC Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission can even maintain to monitor extreme violations of human rights in Kashmir and could preserve to elevate it with different worldwide human rights our bodies.”
He stated that they may be following with deep concern the bloody events in opposition to the safety of the people of the Jammu and Kashmir, the developments within the Nagorno-Karabakh region, the conditions of the Rohingya, the Muslim peoples in Turkish Cyprus, Bosnia and Kosovo and the state of affairs of Muslim societies inside the relaxation of the world.
India has within the beyond asked the OIC no longer to make references to Kashmir, pronouncing it becomes an internal rely. To date, traditional international law does not consider human environmental rights to a clean and healthy environment to be a jus cogens human right. Jus cogens (“compelling law”) refers to preemptory legal principles and norms that are binding on all international States, regardless of their consent. They are not-derogable in the sense that States cannot make a reservation to a treaty or make domestic or international laws that are in conflict with any international agreement that they have ratified and thus to which they are a party. They “prevail over and invalidate international agreements and other rules of international law in conflict with them… [and are] subject to modification only by a subsequent norm… having the same character.” (1) Thus, they are the axiomatic and universally accepted legal norms that bind all nations under jus gentium (law of nations). For example, some U.N. Charter provisions and conventions against slavery or torture are considered jus cogens rules of international law that are nonderogable by parties to any international convention.
While the international legal system has evolved to embrace and even codify basic, non-derogable human rights (2), the evolution of environmental legal regimes has not advanced as far. While the former have found a place at the highest level of universally recognized legal rights, the latter have only recently and over much opposition reached a modest level of recognition as a legally regulated activity within the economics and politics of sustainable development.
