National Conference president Farooq Abdullah on Monday said Article 35A was a "non-negotiable article of faith" for the people of Jammu and Kashmir and that his party was ready to fight every battle to safeguard the state's special status.

"We have sent a request to the United Nations along with evidence to look into this matter", Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said at a seminar in Islamabad.

He says Pakistani forces returned the fire.

Zakaria further said human rights organisations could play an important role in highlighting the "human rights violations taking place in Indian-held Kashmir".

The participants called on the government of India to allow United Nations investigations into the human rights situation, "to establish responsibility and determine appropriate punishment for the perpetrators of such crimes that are against worldwide humanitarian law and global human rights laws". Kashmir is split between nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistan.

Asking United Nations to assume its responsibility of holding plebiscite in J&K, it urged the world body and other relevant global fora to investigate "all massacres, gang-rapes, fake-encounters, forced disappearances, wilful blinding using pellet guns, etc. committed by the Indian forces and Hindu terrorist organizations RSS, etc. and bring the perpetrators to justice".
