"I am grateful to them", Modi said, referring to his comments last week on excesses in Pakistan's largest province and in the part of Kashmir it holds. Describing the Baloch issue as one very close to Afghanistan too, Karzai said allowing people to have peace and human rights is an important matter to Kabul as well.

The Agenda for Alliance had been forumlated after lengthy talks between RSS ideologue and BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and PDP leader Haseeb Drabu. The crimes being perpetrated in Indian-occupied Kashmir have become too blatant for the United Nations to ignore altogether so it is trying to distract from that by pretending the issue is one of India-Pakistan rivalry or can be compared to what is happening in AJK. "The brutal use of force has killed at least 80 people and at least 100 have been blinded by use of pellet guns", he alleged.

Sartaj thanked the OIC for consistently supporting Pakistan's stance over the issue. He said the OIC will continue monitoring the human rights situation in held Kashmir.


"SG OIC reaffirmed strong support to the Kashmiris in securing their right to self determination", Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Mohammed Nafees Zakaria said in a tweet.

"We have made a decision to seek time from the President to apprise him about the real ground situation in Kashmir". They are also based on the assurance given by President Musharraf in January 2004 that he will not permit any territory under Pakistan's control to be used to support terrorism in any manner. "We both stressed the need of intensifying cooperation among the OIC countries and constructive exchange of ideas to address the increasing trends of Islamophobia and defamation of religions".

Apart from this, the FS has added that he would like to get an update on action taken by Pakistan on the 26/11 Mumbai terror case and Pathankot airbase attack.


"If organisations working for freedom of press, freedom of expression and freedom of media still keep silent on such criminal acts of Pakistan, journalism in Kashmir will vanish and the voice the people of the occupied-Kashmir can not reach to the world community", he added.

India also said the Foreign Secretary looked forward to discussing with his Pakistani counterpart "the earliest possible vacation of Islamabad's illegal occupation" of J&K.

Media reports from Pakistan confirm this, as Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is expected to forcefully bring up Kashmir at the upcoming session of UN General Assembly in NY next month.


Madani to a query replied that Muslim countries were sovereign and could take their individual decisions. It " s a complicated issue", he said.
