India rejects OIC`s comments on J&K

New Delhi: India on Friday rejected comments
by the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) on Jammu
and Kashmir, asserting that the grouping has no locus standi
on matters related to its internal affairs.
"We note with regret that the OIC has once again
chosen to comment on Jammu and Kashmir and India`s internal
affairs in the Resolutions adopted, during the 38th Session of
the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers held in Astana,
Kazakhstan from June 28-30, 2011," External Affairs Ministry
spokesperson Vishnu Prakash said here.

"We reject all such references/resolutions," he said.
He asserted that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part
of India and "the OIC has no locus standi in matters
concerning internal affairs of India, which is the largest
democracy and home to the second largest Muslim population in
the world."

Prakash was reacting to OIC`s comments that it
extended "total support for the Kashmiri people and their
legitimate struggle for legitimate right to
self-determination."
