New Delhi categorically maintains that OIC has no locus standi in matters strictly integral to India

India has strongly and categorically rejected “the factually incorrect, gratuitous and unwarranted references to India in resolutions adopted by Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) at the 47th CFM Session in Niamey, Republic of Niger, held on November 27-28.”

“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,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.

“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. We strongly advise OIC to refrain from making such references in future,” the MEA added.
