Gilgit Baltistan badly suffered in Musharraf’s regime

Gilgit Baltistan leaders congratulated the Pakistani nation on ending the unrest eight years dictatorship of General Musharraf in consequence of un-tired efforts of lawyers, judges, politician, journalists and members of civil society.

Addressing a youths gathering Manzoor Hussain Parwana, chairman Gilgit Baltistan United Movement said that the people of Gilgit Baltistan were badly suffered in the military regime of General Musharaf.
“The Kargil operation and the issue of Curriculum were the two foremost caused to unrest for the people of Gilgit Baltistan. The Kargil misadventure in 1999, by Musharraf as army chief gave unrecoverable troubles for the people of Gilgit Baltistan. As well as sectarian riots erupted after the blood assassination of Shia leader Syed Ziauddin Rizvi in Gilgit in 2005, on demanding undisputed and unbiased curriculum for all school of thoughts caused to refresh the wounds of 1988 lashkar’s aggression.” Parwana said.

“In the colonized history of Gilgit Baltistan the press and media was severely suppressed and the journalists were booked and beaten to force down the voice of people in the regime of Musharraf. A monthly magazine “Kargil International” was banned on demanding to establish a commission to find out the culprits of Kargil conflict and its chief editor indicted in sedition charges. The reporter of Geo TV was badly beaten by an army officer in Skardu.” GBUM leader added.

The people of Gilgit Baltistan also demanded to the new COAS of Pakistan, Mr. Ishfaque Kiani to establish a commission to identify the responsible persons who pulled the NLI soldiers into the furnace of Kargil operation in guise of militants and refused to accept their dead bodies.
