RAWALPINDI: Chief of Military Workers (COAS) Normal Qamar Javed Bajwa is chairing a Corps Commanders Convention on Tuesday to debate the scenario alongside the Line of Management (LOC).
The convention comes a day after the Indian authorities abolished Article 370 of the structure which granted particular standing to Indian-occupied Kashmir.
India rushed by a presidential decree on Monday to abolish Article 370, which revoked the particular standing granted to occupied Kashmir and made the state a Union Territory with the legislature. The announcement sparked chaotic scenes within the Indian parliament, with opposition politicians shouting protests, and the Congress describing the choice as a “catastrophic step”.
The unprecedented transfer adopted days of uncertainty within the area that started on Friday when New Delhi ordered vacationers and Hindu pilgrims to go away “instantly”.
Article 370 of the Indian structure gave particular standing to occupied Kashmir. It restricted the ability of the Indian parliament to impose legal guidelines within the state, other than issues of defence, international affairs and communications.
A joint session of Parliament summoned by President Dr Arif Alvi will even meet at Parliament Home in Islamabad at the moment to debate the scenario in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
Pakistan’s Ministry of Overseas Affairs strongly condemned and rejected the Indian authorities’s transfer. In a press launch, the ministry acknowledged that Indian-occupied Kashmir was an internationally recognised disputed territory.
“No unilateral step by the Authorities of India can change this disputed standing, as enshrined within the United Nations Safety Council (UNSC) resolutions. Nor will this ever be acceptable to the folks of Jammu & Kashmir and Pakistan,” stated the press launch.
“Because the occasion to this worldwide dispute, Pakistan will train all attainable choices to counter the unlawful steps,” it added.
