“We also appeal to the individual states within the Organization  of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) who have very strong ties with India to put pressure on New Delhi to stop killings in Kashmir, and to stop occupying the land of the Kashmiris. There is a land grab going on and they are stealing Kashmiris jobs and livelihoods and other rights. So, I think that these key countries in the Gulf Region and the other Middle Eastern parts can play a crucial role in that context.”

STORY:  President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), Sardar Masood Khan, on Friday (July 24)  condemned the latest Indian move to grab the lands of Kashmiri people by amending existing construction and development laws in Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK).
Talking to reporters after addressing a  Seminar entitled “Kashmir Under Siege” organized by Pakistan’s Ministry of information and Broadcasting at a local hotel in Islamabad, Khan condemned new construction laws that India was promulgating in the territory under its occupation, and compared it to Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories.
“India, taking a leaf from Israel’s book, has in fact started replicating this experiment in Kashmir. They are also in the process of constructing illegal settlements , and then legitimizing them. So there is a similarity,” he said. 

Khan said the motive behind the promulgation of such laws in IOK was clearly aimed at turning the majority of Kashmiri Muslims into the minority in their own homeland.
He called upon the Organization of Islamic  Cooperation (OIC) to take notice of the atrocities being committed by Indian troops in the divided valley.
“We also appeal to the individual states within the Organization  of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) who have very strong ties with India to put pressure on New Delhi to stop killings in Kashmir, and to stop occupying the land of the Kashmiris. There is a land grab going on and they are stealing Kashmiris jobs and livelihoods and other rights. So, I think that these key countries in the Gulf Region and the other Middle Eastern parts can play a crucial role in that context.,” the President said.

A separatist movement in IOK has been ongoing for 30 years.
On August 5 last year, the Indian government issued a presidential decree that revoked Article 370 of India's constitution that guaranteed special rights to the Muslim-majority state, including the right to its own constitution and autonomy to make laws on all matters except defence, communications and foreign affairs.
This resulted in revoking the special status accorded to Indian-administered Kashmir in its constitution, giving rise to the most far-reaching political move on the disputed region in nearly 70 years.
The move soured the already frosty relations between nuclear-armed Pakistan and India both of who claim Kashmir in full but rule it in part, and have fought two of their three wars over the disputed territory.
