ISLAMABAD: After India’s illegal move on August 5, Pakistan aggressively raised diplomacy and raised the issue of Kashmir in all international forums.
On August 5, 2019, another black chapter was added to Indian blackmail when its own constitution was trampled to end the special status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan’s aggressive diplomacy exposed Indian atrocities on seven continents, including the United Nations, the OIC and the World Economic Forum.
Pakistan deported the Indian High Commissioner in protest, ended trade, and barred its High Commissioner from leaving. Prime Minister Imran Khan contacted the heads of every country, including China, Germany, and the United States, and informed them of India’s unconstitutional move.
At the direction of the Prime Minister, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi not only made telephone calls but also wrote letters. The President of the Security Council was requested to review the Indian initiatives in occupied Kashmir.
Decades later, the Kashmir dispute came on the agenda of the Security Council. Five months later, at the second meeting of the Security Council, the situation in Kashmir was again considered.
On September 27, 2019, Prime Minister Imran Khan fought the case of Kashmiris in full force in the UN General Assembly. Due to Pakistan’s tireless efforts, US President Donald Trump reiterated his offer to mediate on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly and the World Economic Forum in January.
At the request of Pakistan, several OIC meetings were convened and the Kashmir issue was discussed. The OIC supported the internationally recognized status of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and the resolutions of the Security Council.
Kashmir Day was celebrated every Friday inside the country as well as outside. A highway from Islamabad to Muzaffarabad was named “Srinagar Highway”. In the new political map, Pakistan declared Occupied Kashmir as part of Pakistan while the UN Secretary-General raised the issue of Kashmir in full during his visit to Pakistan.
