Qureshi highlights India's human rights violations in IIOJK, asks OIC to facilitate resolution

A statement posted on OIC's Twitter handle said that "The participants expressed their commitment to continue supporting the Kashmiri people to reach a lasting solution that preserves their dignity & rights. The ministers also prayed for mercy on the soul of the Kashmiri leader, Mr. Ali Gilani."

The Contact Group called for the issue to be highlighted in international forums, especially at the United Nations, as well as to call for immediate action to improve the human rights situation in Illegally Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
