Both India and Pakistan have joint Strategy to blackout Human Rights Violation of PoGB (Pakistan Occupied Gilgit Baltistan)
I am sorry to say that the world Media either ignorant or intentionally neglect the grave Human Rights issue of PoGB (Pakistan Occupied Gilgit Baltistan). BNF leaders and workers who demand for freedom and opposed CPEC were arrested and tortured by JIT (Joint Investigation Team for 20 days and then imposed terrorism charges. Pakistan media and Media in PoGB and PoK are totally under the control of ISI and have no courage to utter a single words without its permission. The only media Kargil International and Daily Baangeshar were banned and Banagesahar Chief Editor is in the Jail framing him terrorist, because he dare to write the grave human rights situation of PoGB, which is terrorism in the unwritten books of occupation regime of Pakistan. Indian media only mentions PoK and Balochistan but not PoGB (Pakistan occupied Gilgit Baltistan) in its rare news. When it mentions Gilgit Baltistan it does not say Pakistan occupied Gilgit Baltistan. The people of PoGB, PoK and even Pakistan does not consider PoK as PoGB. PoGB is the most important area of the dispute, its 7 times bigger than PoK in size, its strategic most important (it’s the only area which provides physical link between China and Pakistan, it has borders with Afghanistan and Tajikistan) in the whole J&K issu.It has huge resources including water, Gold and uranium. Its the area which provides lion share of water by Indus river to make green Punjab and Sindh besides KPK. The people of PoGB think, that it’s the strategy of both India and Pakistan to blackout PoGB Human Rights issue and keep the 2 million indigenous people of this UN disputed land slave as long as possible.
It’s the area where CPEC pollution will be inhaled and no share in the CPEC business. It’s the area where Pakistan and China are benefiting by ignoring the demands and rights of its inhabitants. This is the most deprived part of the world, where people have no right to vote to elect their representative, people have no right to access to Justice and people have no right over their own lands and resources.
