OIC Secretary General Hissein Brahim Taha was on a three-day visit to PoK from December 10-12

India on Tuesday slammed Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Secretary General Hissein Brahim Taha for visiting Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and making comments on Jammu and Kashmir during his visit to Pakistan.

"We strongly condemn the visit of OIC Secretary General to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) and his comments on J&K during his visit to Pakistan,” Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said in response to media queries on the visit of OIC Secretary General to POK.

Putting the record straight, the MEA Spokesperson said, “Let me reiterate that OIC has no locus standi in matters related to J&K, which is an integral and inalienable part of India. Any attempt of interference and meddling in India’s internal affairs by OIC and its Secretary General is completely unacceptable.”

“OIC has already lost its credibility by taking a blatantly communal, partisan, and factually incorrect approach to issues,” Bagchi said.

The MEA Spokesperson said unfortunately, the OIC Secretary General has “become a mouth-piece of Pakistan.”

However, he hoped that the OIC Secretary General would “refrain from becoming a partner in carrying out the nefarious agenda of Pakistan of promoting cross border terrorism into India, especially in J&K.”
