Last week, the Foreign Office additionally categorically rejected the grant of domicile certificates of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&Okay) by the Indian authorities to reportedly 25,000 Indian nationals.
The Foreign Office spokesperson in a press release stated: “The certificates issued to non-Kashmiris including, among others, the Indian government officials under ‘Jammu and Kashmir Grant of Domicile Certificate (Procedure), 2020’ are illegal, void and in complete violation of the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions, and International law including the 4th Geneva Convention.”

“This has long been part of the RSS-BJP’s ‘Hindutva’ agenda. By changing the demographic structure of IOJ&K, the Indian Government intends to undermine the exercise by the Kashmiri people of their right to self-determination through a free and impartial plebiscite under the auspices of the United Nation as per the relevant UNSC Resolutions,” the spokesperson remarked.
