Gilgit Baltistan:No more Ghansara Singh acceptable: GBUM

GILGIT: Chairman Gilgit-Baltistan United Movement (GBUM) Manzoor Hussain Parwana has said that February 14 would be remembered as another black day since August 1, 1947,when Ghansara Singh resumed his powers as the governor of Gilgit-Baltistan. He said the induction of Birjees Tahir as the governor from Punjab can be taken as another robbery on the rights of the people of the region. He stated these views on the appointment of Birjees Tahir as the governor of Gilgit-Baltistan. He said making a member of Pakistan's National Assembly and sitting federal minister as the governor of the disputed territory of Gilgit-Baltistan was another unique example of Pakistani democracy. He said even the constitution of Pakistan does not allow a sitting MNA and minister to become as the governor of any province because it was an administrative post. He said the civil society and lawyers following the constitution of the country should raise voice against this extra-judicial step of the federal government. The GBUM chief said that if the people of Gilgit-Baltistan were to keep slaves of outsiders, there was no need to get rid of people like Ghansara Singh by waging the liberation struggle. Also there would have been no justification for keeping the people of the region deprived of their basic rights for the last over six decades. Today our new generation would have to decide once for all that who were wrong: those who fought and kicked out the Dogra rulers including Ghansara Singh or the people who welcomed the new Ghansara at Chinar Bagh carrying bouquets in their hands when he arrived from Punjab to take over as the governor of Gilgit-Baltistan. The GBUM chief also said that those who never tired of claiming credits for the hollow self-rule and autonomy package were now repenting after losing their chance to rule the area. If the people of eh region did not stop dancing to the tune of the federalist political parties in Gilgit-Baltistan, the future of the two million people would be at stake, he added.

“Military courts not acceptable in Gilgit-Baltistan”, says Manzoor Parwana

 National leader Manzoor Parwana has said that since the constitution of Pakistan does not apply on Gilgit-Baltistan, the establishment of the military courts in the region is illegal. In a press statement, the leader of the Gilgit-Baltistan National Movement has said that establishment of military courts is part of a strategy to cripple indigenous struggle for constitutional and political rights.
Parwana has also said that efforts should be made to strengthen the existing judicial system instead of introducing new courts in Gilgit-Baltistan.
He has not opposed establishment of military courts in mainland Pakistan citing the prevailing law and order situation and the spread of terrorism.
“The method used for establishment of courts in Gilgit-Baltisan is illegal and highly unnecessary”, Parwana, who has been imprisoned a number of times in the past, has said, fearing that indigenous political activists might be persecuted in these courts.
