Pakistan Calls for UN Meeting amid Kashmir Lockdown

14 Aug 2019 The Killid Group

Pakistan called for an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council, saying India's decision to strip Kashmir of its autonomy threatens international peace and could lead to ethnic cleansing and genocide in the Muslim-majority region, according to report.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi denounced "recent aggressive actions" by India's Hindu nationalist-led government, saying they "willfully undermine the internationally recognized disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir," as Global News quoted.

In a letter to the council Tuesday obtained by The Associated Press, Qureshi also accused India of implementing a "racist ideology" aimed at turning Kashmir from a Muslim-majority into a Hindu-majority territory.
