Two years after the Government of India stripped Jammu and Kashmir of its semi-autonomous status, and divided the erstwhile state into two Union Territories on August 5, 2019, the General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) reiterated its call to revoke all these steps.

In a statement, the General Secretariat refers to the decisions and resolutions of the Islamic Summit and OIC Council of Foreign Ministers and reiterates its solidarity with the people of Jammu and Kashmir in their quest for the right of self-determination.

It urged to refrain from changing the demographic composition of the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir and to respect the basic human rights of its inhabitants.
