New Delhi: Categorically rejecting the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) resolution adopted against it, India on Sunday asked them to refrain from making such references in future.
In a statement, the ministry of external affairs said, “We strongly and categorically reject the factually incorrect, gratuitous and unwarranted references to India in resolutions adopted by the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) at the 47th CFM Session in Niamey, Republic of Niger, held on 27-28 November 2020.”
“We have always maintained that OIC has no locus standi in matters strictly internal to India, including that of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral and inalienable part of India,” it said.
It is regrettable that OIC continues to allow itself to be used by a certain country, which has an abominable record on religious tolerance, radicalism and persecution of minorities, to indulge in anti-India propaganda, it added.
“We strongly advise the OIC to refrain from making such references in future,” the ministry added.
