    China has allegedly detained dozens of Muslim women in Xinjiang region who are married to men in Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B), according to Voice of America.

    The issue was addressed in a unanimously passed resolution of the legislative assembly of G-B, lawmakers said on Sunday.

    The resolution demands the federal government take urgent steps to secure the release of more than 50 Chinese wives, who it says were taken into custody last year while they were visiting relatives in their native towns in Xinjiang.




    China could grant concessions to Pakistan

    The deputy speaker of the assembly was quoted as saying the women were rounded up during a Chinese anti-terrorism crackdown in Xinjiang.

    The detainees are married to G-B men who are mostly associated with trading activity through the Khunjerab Pass, the only land route linking Pakistan and China, about 4,500 metres above sea level.

    Regional lawmakers insisted the history of intermarriages between G-B and Xinjiang is decades old, and both the border regions share deep cultural ties. They asserted the detained Chinese women were innocent and had no links to any radical elements.

    Pakistan’s development by-product of China’s global integration

    Chinese and Pakistani federal officials have not immediately offered any reaction to the allegations leveled in the resolution.

    Chinese officials accuse the outlawed East Turkestan Islamic Movement, or ETIM, of plotting terrorist attacks in and beyond the province.

    The separatist group was founded by militant Uighurs apparently in response to alleged government restrictions on religious and cultural expression, charges Beijing denies as baseless.

    The Gilgit-Baltistan region is the gateway to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

    The project is a combination of building roads, rails, economic free zones and power plants in the country with an estimated $62 billion Chinese investment. Thousands of Chinese are currently in Pakistan, working on CPEC-related projects.

    The corridor aims to link the Arabian Sea to Xinjiang through Khunjerab Pass, giving Beijing a secure and shortest trade access to international markets.

    The most important thing to note is that how the news bypassed all Pakistan news channels and newspaper even the anti-CPEC lobby like Dawn, Tribune etc and got reported by VOA.

    Anything happens to muslims in India, the world will break loose in Pakistan, even if it's Indians. If China & Muslim atrocities, cat will catch Pakistanis tongue even if Pakistani involved, that's no issues. Justification will start.

    Internal matters, It's not true, blah blah

    VOA reported when a Pakistani journalist reported the resolution passed by a Pakistani legislative assembly in Pakistan by Pakistanis in occupied gilgit Balistan

    Call for release of Chinese wives of GB men in Xinjiang

    GILGIT: The Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly (GBLA) through a unanimous resolution has called for the federal government to take urgent steps for the release of over 50 Chinese wives of GB men detained in neighbouring Xinjiang province of China.

    Over 50 citizens of GB, most of them affiliated with import and export businesses between Pakistan and China, are married to Muslim women in Xinjiang province. The Chinese police have arrested these women.

    The resolution was tabled by lawmaker Bibi Salima during the ongoing GBLA session on Friday.

    It says that the citizens of the two countries frequently visit each other’s countries via the Khunjerab Pass. There are also many cases of intermarriages between the people of GB and Xinjiang province in which rules and laws of the two countries were followed.

    But, the resolution says, last year the Chinese police had started arresting those Chinese citizens who are married to foreigners and among those who have been taken into custody are the women who have married to Pakistani men.

    It says many children belonging to GB families have been suffering because their Chinese mothers are under detention in Xinjiang province.

    The resolution has demanded that the federal government take up this issue with the Chinese authorities.

    Speaking on the resolution, Pakistan Peoples Party member Javed Hussain said that the history of intermarriages between the people of GB and Xinjiang province was decades-old. He said in many cases women under detention in Xinjiang province had travelled to China with their children who were now in China without any help from their families because their fathers were in Pakistan.

    He urged the federal government to urgently take up the issue with the China government.

    GBLA Deputy Speaker Jaffarullah Khan said that many of these women were arrested on suspicion of their links to religious extremist groups when the Chinese government launched a crackdown on elements involved in religiously-motivated acts of terrorism in Xinjiang province.

    But, he added, no one from these women had been found involved in acts of terrorism in China.

    The resolution says that the GB is the gateway to Pakistan-China friendship and its people have historical, traditional and cultural relationship with the people of Xinjiang province.

    It says the GB people have always respected and provided hospitality to Chinese guests during their stay in the region. They have also played an important role in joint projects launched by the two countries in GB, including Karakoram Highway which has now been declared a route of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

    It claims that Chinese workers and engineers working in the region have never complained about local people and no untoward incident with Chinese citizens in GB has ever been reported.

    The resolution says that the Pakistan-China relationship has become strong due to border trade between the two countries through GB.

    But it makes no difference in PDF. No one will complain if China robs steals kills as many Pakistanis as they like. Its Pakistan's strategic imperative to stay silent and point fingers at whomsoever is the current traitor/enemy.
    Good luck

    Actually you are an idiot. If anything happens to Muslims in India, we Pakistanis say it is India's internal affairs.

    Stop spouting lies here.
