Non-implementation of Kashmir resolution….

Non-implementation of Kashmir resolution is UN’s persistent failure: Maleeha Lodhi

United Nations, Oct 8 (IANS) Pakistans Ambassador to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi has said that non-implementation of the Kashmir resolutions is the “most persistent failure” of the UN.

Addressing the General Assembly’s Special Political and Decolonization Committee, Lodhi said on Friday that for over six decades the UN Security Council has failed to implement resolutions promising a plebiscite to allow the Kashmiri people to determine their destiny.

“This is the most persistent failure of the United Nations,” Lodhi said.

Lodhi also said that Jammu and Kashmir “never was and can never be” an integral part of India. “It is disputed territory, the final status of which has yet to be determined in accordance with several resolutions of the UN Security Council,” she said.

Her remark comes after Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said at the UN General Assembly last month that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so, and that Pakistan should cease to covet the state.

Targeting India, Lodhi said: “Generation after generation of Kashmiris has only seen broken promises and brutal oppression.”

“Today the Kashmiri people have risen again in unison against an occupation,” Pakistan Today quoted Lodhi as saying.

She termed the current uprising in the Kashmir valley, in which 90 people have been killed since July 9, as “the worst form of state terrorism, a war crime, which India has perpetrated by its illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir for decades”.

“Uniform, comprehensive and non-selective implementation of United Nations resolutions should be our focus,” she said, adding: “Selective implementation erodes confidence in the system and undermines the credibility of the organisation.”

  1. Maleeha apparently you have not read UN resolution 48, it is just one page. There were requirements set by the UN to have a plebiscite.

    1. Pakistan should vacate Kashmir.
    2. India takes over the occupied land and is allowed to keep their army and police to maintain law and order.
    3. When both UN and India are satisfied with the security arrangements then India will hold a plebiscite.

    Regrettably Pakistan never vacated Kashmir, in fact they donated a large part of Kashmir called Aksai Chin to China, and so the matter has become more complicated with both Pakistan and China occupying Kashmir.

    But Pakistan keeps insisting that Kashmir should be in Pakistan because the people there are Muslims. The irony of this baseless claim is “If Pakistan really cared for Muslims, then they should allow the 300,000 Bihari’s in Bangladesh living in squalid refugee camps in Dhaka refusing Bangladeshi citizenship and insisting on going to Pakistan, but Pakistan does not want to take these Bihari Sunni Muslims to Karachi where they wish to settle.

  2. India raises Kashmir in the UN Security Council, which in Resolution 47 calls for a “referendum” on the status of the territory. The resolution also calls on Pakistan to withdraw its troops and India to cut its military presence to a minimum. A ceasefire comes into force, but Pakistan refuses to evacuate its troops. Kashmir is for practical purposes partitioned.

    The Congress failed in the 50 years after Independence to win over the minds and hearts of the people of the Valley.There is a bold way out. That is to conduct a referendum where all the citizens of J&K have a vote, as would have happened if the maharaja had acceded in good time before the invasion from Pakistan. Ask them if they want to be integrated in the Union or be autonomous. The latter is not the same as independence but what they had between 1947 and 1953, with Article 370 restored effectively.
    Bullets is not the answer.But diplomacy to win the heart. The ruling BJP-PDP is miserably failed. Former RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav deputation as state incharge turned to be political killing field.
    If ULFA,NAGA,BODO,Telengana,Patidars and Jats has the right to protest why Kashmiris not?
    If India is to make J&K love India, this is the only way.

    Jai Hind

  3. India has to make J & K love India??? There is a line in their scripture which in Arabic states “Hubul Watani Min al Iman” translated “Love for your country is part of your faith”…where is it, I can’t see it. The UN resolutions 48 is very clear and Pakistan is in default, and most world leaders support India on the issue.

    The world has seen the height of ungratefulness and ingratitude by the way the people of J & K have treated their motherland:
    1. For over 6 decades the government of India has enacted laws that are pro J & K, that no other states in India enjoy.
    2. Kashmir gets the maximum subsidy on food in J & K. Rice is the cheapest in Kashmir, than in the rest of India.
    3. Kashmiri’s can purchase property all over India, but Indians cannot purchase property in Kashmir.
    4.No other state in India has been loved in that way, but the love was reciprocated by violence and mayhem. Our security forces were the ones who had to face their bullets.
    5. In the growing violence and lawlessness what else can the security forces do than to shoot back at those who shoot and kill them.
    6. The Kashmiri Hindu pundits have been raped, killed and driven out of their ancestral homes where there have lived for hundreds of years and they are living in refugee camps not allowed to return to their homes. The few that are there live under government protection in constant fear of being killed. But sadly not a word about them.

    So when India and the Indian masses has done all what it takes to love the people of Kashmir, did we ever get loved back. A great statesman once remarked “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what, you can do for your country.

    Wonder if we could ever hear even that fake “Jai Hind” from the people Kashmir, leave alone joining the rest of Indians in saying “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”

  4. Let me first congratulate PM Modi and former RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav and present state in charge J&K for successfully implementing ‘Skill India’ for 100 days shutdown in Kashmir valley. Gujarat Model is so effective that 92 of Indian citizens are killed,400 permanently blinded and another 6000 are injured. In “Mera Desh Badal Raha Hai, Agey Badh Raha Hai” economic losses mounted nearly Rs 30,000 crores with no tourism footprint for this season.

    Rather than saying world,I would emphasis on my argument of British raj ‘Divide and rule policy’ debunking the claims.
    1.Jammu and Kashmir has a separate flag and constitution. Unlike Jammu and Kashmir which enjoys a special status of autonomy under Article 370, Nagaland is presently governed under Article 371 A of the Constitution, which gives the right over land and resources to the Nagas.
    In the backdrop of some reports saying that the Centre have reportedly agreed to allow Nagaland residents to have a separate passport and flag, sources within the MHA have denied the possibility of such a development.
    The demand for a separate passport and flag are in accordance with the peace accord signed by the NSCN-IM(terrorist organisation), the state government and the Government of India as then reported by the media.

    2.Food subsidy-The National Food Security Act, 2013 (also Right to Food Act) is an Act of the Parliament of India which aims to provide subsidized food grains to approximately two thirds of India’s 1.2 billion people.It was signed into law on 12 September 2013, retroactive to 5 July 2013. There is different methodology for estimation of subsidies in India. It is not only J&K but reaching aim reach improvised states of India (Another blatant lie is exposed)
    3.Indians can’t buy land in Kashmir because of Article 370-There is nothing new in the law that restricts Indians from buying land in Jammu and Kashmir. In fact, the provision is rooted in the state’s history. Just like there are laws that restrict Indians from buying land in Himachal Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Kashmir too, since its days of Dogra king, has such laws called the State Subject Laws.
    6.True that Kashmiri Pandits left the valley out of fear as the armed revolt began against the Indian rule. But before blaming the Muslims, a majority in the valley, we need to take a holistic view of the circumstances at that time. There was no civil society, government machinery had collapsed and the state was under President’s rule, represented by governor Jagmohan.
    “While most of these killings happened after January of 1990, there has been no plausible reason given to why most of the Pandits fled on the night of 19 January 1990. The only coincidences close to this date are joining of Jagmohan as governor of J&K one day prior and the repeated massacres by Indian forces right after 19 January. Sadly many facts in India have been twisted to create a demonic image of every Kashmir Muslim, blaming them for every crime of this conflict.
    It was not only Pandits who migrated from Kashmir, yet India recognizes migrants as ‘Pandits exclusive’. Of a total of 142424 migrants from Kashmir, 124381 were Pandits, 10930 Muslims and 7113 Sikhs (source Indian government data of migrants). But not only was the figure of migration used and falsified in India for political ends (claims of migrant numbers fluctuating between 2 lac, 3 lac to 7 lac), much help extended by the Indian government to migrants was also decided by a religious identity, being exclusive to Pandits.
    To quote a 10 August 1948 report in The Times, London: “2,37,000 Muslims were systematically exterminated – unless they escaped to Pakistan along the border – by the forces of the Dogra State headed by the Maharaja in person and aided by Hindus and Sikhs. This happened in October 1947, five days before the Pathan invasion and nine days before the Maharaja’s accession to India.” Reportedly, as a result of the massacre/migration, Muslims who were a majority (61 per cent) in the Jammu region became a minority

    4&5 The third area of conflict is the North East. This is a part of India that was not under Mughal rule. The British made the tribes submit and these areas were brought into India fairly recently. Some of these tribes resisted the integration even before 1947. They have continued their violence. And for decades this resistance has been pacified by the Indian Army which has a strong presence there. But the rebels of the North East do not fight their war in Bangalore and Hyderabad. No attacks are made against our airports and no hostages are taken in our schools.
    While Kashmir valley is returning to tourism during UPA,Travel to the seven sister states of North East India by foreigners or Indians can be limited and requires the use of permits in some states. Ethnic issues as well as the sensitive nature and proximity to the borders of China, Bhutan, and Myanmar deems this necessary. A similar permit is needed for travel along the eastern border of Himachal Pradesh and Tibet, however, with fewer limitations.

    Jammu and Kashmir is no longer the hotbed of militancy and separatist violence in the country as the conflict-ridden northeastern states have surpassed it in respect of insurgency-related violence and civilian casualties. The northeastern states recorded 1,489 incidents of insurgency-related violence in 2007 while Jammu and Kashmir recorded about 900 incidents, according to the latest report titled, Status Paper on Naxal Activities, prepared by the ministry of home affairs.

    “Hubbul wathan minal iman”(Loving one’s homeland is part of Iman) Who else can be better example than param vir chakra Abdul Hamid and brigadier Usman which Shivraj chouhan govt. ‘forgets’ in the India’s first war memorial which PM Modi inaugurated.The book,” WHO IS WHO OF INDIAN MARTYRS” is so important one that it contains all the details of martyrs who laid their lives for the sake our India. There are several Muslims names, the age being tender from 8 and beyond who sacrificed lives in bullet shots, death sentences, and life sentence, sent to Andaman Island prison to die there unattended and uncared for.

    ‘Jai Hind’ simply means “Hail India”, was coined by Maj. Abid Hasan, who was an officer in Subhas Chandra Bose’s Azad Hind Fauj. The phrase Jai Hind is used in various contexts, from salutation in the Army and government offices, to warcry.

    From a Muslim point of view Bharat is the country which deserves one’s utmost love, respect and loyalty but it cannot be hailed as a deity as Allah is the only God for Muslims.

    Muslims have no objection to saying ‘Jai Hind’ because Hind or Hindustan signifies the country and not a deity.
    In light of above reasons no secular, logical and constitution respecting Indian can have objection to a Muslim’s refusal to recite ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’

    India has never been a nation in the classical sense of the word as used in the West. The nations in the West were founded on the basis of one language and one culture. But India was never mono-religious, mono-cultural and mono-lingual. Pluralism of all kinds — religious, linguistic and cultural — has been its hallmark. When Indians began to challenge the British Raj, their leaders realised the importance of unity of the people, especially of Hindus and Muslims. One of the slogans of the activists was “Deen dharam hamara mazhab, yeh isai (meaning the British) kahan se aye (Islam and Hinduism are our religions, where these British came from?).
    But someone do inherited traces of policy of ‘divide rule’ which ‘East India company’.

    There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.-Proverbs 6:16-19

  5. The topic was “Pakistan keeps blaming India for the non implementation of the US resolution”, and if there is anyone to blame for the non implementation of the UN resolutions it is Pakistan who refused to withdraw their troops from Kashmir, and continue to illegally occupy Indian Land.

    But here we have this fine gentleman staying Happily in India but does not want to even verbally rebuke Pakistan for illegally occupying Indian land, instead he says that Kashmir has been partitioned for all practical purposes. He constantly dances around the whole topic, and talks about every other separatist groups in India and blah, blah, blah …… concludes with – Proverbs.

    Why is it so, so hard to come to the point? Why is it so, so hard to condemn the Islamic republic of Pakistan for the atrocities they have done and continue to do ????

  6. UN resolution also calls for referendum in J&K. If democracy can be restored why not ballot on ‘azadi’?
    If there are peace treaty with NorthEast terror groups why the same policy can be implemented?

    If central government consider separate states on the basis on language,caste and ethnicity why Kashmiris should be sidelined?

    Only people who don’t understand the argument will pose question for question.Argument without authenticity doesn’t stand.

    “But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips” (Colossians 3:8).

    James 4:11 tells it straight: “Brothers, do not slander one another.”

      Ya man! They don’t! They ONLY happen to drop bombs on their OWN bros and do ‘boom-boom’ because of certain ‘rewards UP THERE’.

  7. Sir, Seriously, have you ever, ever read the UN resolution on Kashmir? Does it just say “have a plebiscite in Kashmir” ? Aren’t there conditions before and after that? Please do yourself a favour and read that one page resolution, and stop continuing to make a fool of yourself. As always, coming out with half truths (Taqqiya, more taqqiya) showing your bias by quoting only the last part/condition of the UN resolution.

    Since Pakistan did not pull back their troops which was the first part of the UN resolution, they were in direct violation of the very same UN resolution. So, if there is anyone to blame it is the Pakistani leadership.

    Hence, if there is anyone, and I repeat anyone (hint, hint, wink, wink, nudge, nudge) who is not happy in India and wants “Azadi”, then we have one last Indian hospitality and privilege. We show them the door to take advantage of this last Indian hospitality, one last time. ALL who want to move to Pakistan or any other country that is willing to accept them, may do so. The partition of India was complete, and the Muslims of India got their pound of flesh, the rest of ALL Indian communities chose to live within the union and so the Indian government will negotiate with them differently and accordingly.

    Lastly, don’t quote from Colossians or James the caps fits you perfectly, so you wear it with pride. Lastly, if you are a true Indian you should proudly say ‘BHARAT MATHA KI JAI”. Don’t try to fool us by saying “Jai Hind”

  8. India’s borders would be drastically different if Nehru was not at the helm of Indian representation for the Independence Act of ’47. He made many strategic changes to the map of India which was being drawn up by Radcliffe because of his cordial relationship with Mountbatten. For example, the town of Gurdaspur was included in India though it had a Muslim majority population because of Nehru.

    If not for this town, logistics to supply weapons to Kashmir War would be non-existent. See the many highways passing through? We would have lost the ’48 war flat out if not for Nehru. The reason why Nehru went to UN was simple. The Kingdom of Kathiawar had a Muslim ruler for a Hindu majority region. They voted via plebiscite to join India and the area was integrated into Bombay state. Pakistan still lays a claim to the area, but it has no legal standing. Nehru wanted to repeat that in Kashmir as soon as possible and finish the deal. Actually if things had gone as per his plan, the Kashmir issue would have been solved a long time ago.

    I had answered all your misconception and one side story on this matter and related subjects you mix to suit your barbarism. Gentleman,I had grown old passing through the days which you read as an history. I would rather request you to read the clause in UN resolution which you try to misinterpreted.

    The partition of India is one of black dot in the Indian history which ‘British Raj’ passed to us as parting gift.The valley be Switzerland of India if divisive politics rested long back.

    Well cherry picking the words will not live any impact on me. It only shows the attitude and mindset towards other religion.

    Finally ‘Jai Hind’ is small token of respect to my motherland which I born and wish to die. I don’t believe in sexual discrimination of my motherland. I would rather chant ‘Hindustan Zindabad’ which has not discrimination at all.

    Jai Hind
