Gilgit Baltistan : GB to stage a bloody uprising.

Gilgit Baltistan : GB to stage a bloody uprising.

March 26, 2011

Corruption, joblessness and lack of funds are forcing the natives of GB to stage a bloody uprising. Government's policy to continue Islamabad's colonial system is causing irreparable damage to the people of GB. These views were expressed Manzoor Hussain Parwana Chief of Gilgit Baltistan United Movement addressing a press conference at Skardu.
Parwana said Pakistan's autonomy package has failed to produce results as terrorism, targeted killing and corruption have made GB a hostage. The ad-hoc presidential ordinance is not the solution, as people want genuine autonomy. A Tunisian style uprising is in the offing as the regime has failed to pay attention to the genuine needs of the people. Although currently, poverty, ban on political activity, lack of freedom of expression, and fear is holding the people back but educated youth are more aware and ready to regain control over their land. They know that they are dealing with one of the most ruthless regimes and militaries in the world, which is not shy of killing their own people for paltry amounts of compensation and ransom.
"This regime does not work for their own citizens but rather work for money. What autonomy can we expect from such a regime. Main reason of target killing is denial of basic human rights. In the name of autonomy, thousands of security forces have arrived in the region, which oppress the natives with impunity. Instead of confronting the terrorists, they torture and harass nationalist political workers. The only solution acceptable to these issues is respect to the wishes of locals and withdrawal of Pakistani colonial masters from the region." Parwana added
