Gilgit Baltistan United Movement : No liberation for Kashmir on ethical bias

SKARDU: Every year by commemorating the day of independent republic of Kashmir, the people of Kashmir draws the attention of the free and civilized world towards the people of a region who have been subjugated and kept deprived of all basic human rights by two democratic countries for the last over half a century.
This was stated by Manzoor Parwana, Chairman Gilgit-Baltistan United Movement (GBUM), on the occasion of the historic day of October 4. On behalf of two million people of Gilgit-Baltistan, he paid tributes to the people of Kashmir and their political leaders for once again drawing the attention towards the moments in history during which we as a free nation had also carved out an independent state for them.
Parwana added that it is a fact that India and Pakistan have never respected the wishes of the people of Kashmir but turned the valley into a garrison area for achieving their own vested interests, where every Kashmiri sees his brother and sister being killed on other side of the bloody border. Apart from the injustices of the governments of both the countries, the so-called political leadership of Kashmir has also taken undue advantages of the situation at the cost of the people of Kashmir.”
“I believe that the day when each Kashmiri realizes that Kashmir is not a property of its Muslim inhabitants alone but all who live here including Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Pundits have the right to rule and neither they want to accede to Pakistan on the basis of religion nor they want freedom from India due to anti-Hindu sentiment but want to make their region an independent state without consideration of caste, creed and religion, only then the day of independence will dawn in the region.”
