The announcement was made by President of the General Assembly of the 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference, Rebeca AlitwalaKadaga, in Ugandan Capital Kampala on September 28.
The decision was taken after Pakistan’s delegates, led by Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Dr. Fehmida Mirza drew attention of House towards India’s illegal actions in occupied Kashmir.
The association asked Pakistan to submit a written application for an investigation in this matter.
Dr. Fehmida said people of Indian Occupied Kashmir have been under siege since August 5 and all local elected representatives are under detention and deprived of any voice.
Delegates of the member states joined Pakistan delegation, yelling a loud “No” as an Indian delegate tried to call the issue an internal matter of India.
