India calls for boycott of Malaysia over Occupied Kashmir conflict favouring Pakistan

ISLAMABAD - Indian media and nationalists have called for boycott of Malaysia over Occupied Kashmir conflict favouring Pakistan at the UN General Assembly.

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s speech at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) called Jammu and Kashmir “invaded and occupied” territory.

Malaysian PM statement has led to social media outrage, with people calling for the boycott of trade and tourism with Malaysia.

Echoing Turkey and China, Malaysia accused India of invading and occupying Jammu and Kashmir and asked India and Pakistani to “resolve the problem by peaceful means”. "Now, despite the UN resolution on Jammu and Kashmir, the country has been invaded and occupied."

"There may be reasons for this action but it is still wrong. The problem must be solved by peaceful means. India should work with Pakistan to resolve this problem. Ignoring the UN would lead to other forms of disregard for the UN and the Rule of Law," said the Malaysian prime minister.

Mohamad also tweeted that ignoring the UN is tantamount to disregard for the organisation and the rule of law link .
