    Human rights issues in Gilgit-Baltistan, AJK raised at UN

    At the ongoing 29th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, the exiled Kashmiri leaders sought the Council’s attention towards deteriorating human rights situation in the region.

    Nasir Aziz Khan, the spokesperson of United Kashmir People’s National Party (UKPNP), during his intervention said that the people of Pakistan administrated Kashmir still live in a pathetic condition and don’t have any freedom to exercise their fundamental rights.

    “Exploitation of natural resources in Gilgit-Baltistan and so-called Azad Kashmir has deprived the natives of the region from their own natural wealth. Pakistan is involved in plundering of natural resources of region without the consultation of local population. Islamabad is constructing mega dams, proposed China Pakistan Economic Corridor project which runs across our region before it enters Pakistan. Mega projects in a disputed territory of Kashmir are a clear violation of international laws and UNCIP resolutions on Kashmir,” he added.

    Nasir also raised the issue of arrest of nationalist leaders during the elections in Gilgit Baltistan.

    He said that recently Nadir Hasan Khan and other nationalist leaders have been arrested in Gilgit Baltistan for peacefully protesting and leading a rally to submit a memo to UN sub office against farce elections in Gilgit Baltistan and for release of Baba Jan, Iftikhar Hussain and other political activists, who were charged under the anti terrorist act and facing 40 years life imprisonment.

    “A renowned Kashmiri historian Saeed Asad has been sacked by the so called Azad Kashmir Government under the instructions of Pakistani Lent officer for publishing a map which shows Gilgit Baltistan as part of the undivided Jammu and Kashmir. Sacking an academician from the government job is a clear violation of freedom of expression and fundamental rights of the citizen,” Nasir informed the United Nations.

    The nationalist leaders from Pakistan administered Kashmir allege that Islamabad has been exploiting vast resources from the region whereas the indigenous people are living a miserable life.

    “In 1960s, Pakistan constructed Mangla Dam in Mirpur, Kashmir. Pakistan had agreed to provide free electricity to natives and pay royalty to the AJK (Azad Jammu and Kashmir) for the use of the water and electricity generated by the dam. But this commitment never saw the light of the day,” said Nasir.

    “Kashmiris are denied royalty because Islamabad says Kashmir is not a province of Pakistan and royalty is only paid to provinces. Mangla Dam produces 1300 mega watts and our daily need is only 330 mega watts. But the region has been facing electricity shortage or load shedding for over 18-20 hours a day,” he added.

    Oh please SHUT-UP! We are treated better than other parts of Pakistan. Is there no load shedding in other parts of Pakistan? Is there no infrastructure problems in others parts of Pakistan? If so, then how are we discriminated? Just because you find ONE dog barking, does not reflect on all of us!

    We are Muslims and holding onto the rope of Allah and not separating with the land of the pure. This idiot probably sitting in Christendom thinks we'll allow our country to break-up he better think again.

    This is a month of fasting and I better cool off! Really, made me angry :astagh: with his lies and propaganda!

    In fact GB and Kashmir are doing great in some fields compared to other parts of the country, such as education. I believe CPEC will further improve our economic situation, which comparatively is better than rest of the country. Better connectivity to remote areas, better infrastructure is always welcome. CPEC will also encourage tourism, due to the security situation tourism industry suffered a lot, let's not forget that tourism is a main source of earning for many in those parts. Good times ahead. Such futile efforts to stop CPEC or any other development work is unacceptable. Funny how such people think they represent views of these regions and in reality we all know what the real case is. Anyway, such efforts all expected.

    Thank you for your concern. I live and breath the air of FREE Kashmir. I get out in the morning with a smile on my face that Allah blessed than I'm Muslim love of my Muslim country without ANY prejudice! I live in total freedom and my views are a reflection of those who live here.

    Not some sell-out who wants to make a name of himself. Is he waiting for an asylum application to go through?

    My advice to you is don't think that Nadir's views reflect ours. As Pakistanis we're always moaning about one thing or another like the rest of the country. Why? Because we can!

    I have no reason to lie. Lying is an Indian trait, not ours!
