JAMMU: Reacting sharply to the uttering of Pakistan’s Law Minister Zahid Hamid accusing India without any substance at UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Prof. Bhim Singh, Executive Chairman, Indian Human Rights Council reminded that it was Pakistan in 1948 who failed to implement the United Nations Security Council Resolutions. He reminded Pakistan that the United Nations Security Council on 13th January, 1948 had directed Pakistan to vacate all occupied territories of J&K which formed part of the State of J&K under Maharaja Hari Singh in 1947 and directed that Pakistan shall not remain on the occupied land of J&K.
In a statement, Bhim said that Krishnamenon in 1957 had brought entire material on record regarding the aggression by Pakistan on the State of J&K as Pakistan defied the resolution of the Security Council and instead occupied several strategically important areas of J&K. After 13th January, 1948 when resolution was passed with direction to the Pakistan to vacate all occupied areas of J&K, Pakistan invaded Gilgit in the month of July, 1948 and captured entire Gilgit region of J&K comprising nearly 33000 sq. miles of territory. Pakistan instead of vacating the occupied areas of J&K as directed by the United Nations on 13th January, 1948 occupied Gilgit and even arrested Brig. Ghansara Singh, the sitting Governor of Gilgit and in 2009 annexed entire Gilgit-Baltistan with Pakistan in total violation of UN Resolution.
Bhim also reminded the world community that Pakistan in 1963 leased out Karakoram Highway (Indian territory) to China in utter violation of the United Nations resolutions and thus has committed grave violation in International Law.
He charged Pakistan for violating International Law and territorial integrity as Jammu and Kashmir was acceded by its ruler, Maharaja Hari Singh to the Union of India on 26thOctober, 1947. He declared that he shall go to the United Nations as a representative from J&K to represent the case as it does exist today where Pakistan has no space except as an aggressor vis-à-vis Jammu and Kashmir.
