GILGIT BALTISTAN: NATIONALIST LEADER chargedin sedition case FOR DEMANDING BASIC RIGHTS
GILGIT: A local court indicted the nationalist leader and chairman of Gilgit Balitstan United movement, Manzoor Hussain Parwana for activities and conspiracy. He was indicted due to his protest against the injustice ad against the powerless government in GB. He is accused according section 123a, 124a, 153a. He appeared in the court on 10th August 2015 along with his lawyer Ahsan Ali Adovcate and Jahangir Shah.
Mr. Parwana was indicted in the FIR Number 211/11.
He is accused for his demand to open the Kargil-Skardu ancient trade route and for his help to meet the divided family across the LoC. He demands that the people of the region have the right to rule and govern the area according to the United National resolution on Kashmir.
He claims that Gilgit Baltistan is a disputed territory and not the constitutional part of Pakistan, therefore the question of treachery or trustiness is before time.
He said the use of state power against helpless people is a kind or suppression and the violation of basic human rights.
Mr. Parwana claims that the Pakistan Government threatened him to kill him and he is indicted in fabricated cases just to stop him for his struggle for the basic rights of the people of Gilgit and Balitistan.
He said if his demand to open the Kargil – Sakardu road is illegal, a treachery and the violation of the law, then the members of the Gilgit Baltistan Assembly should also be indicted as they also demanded the opening of Kargil – Sakardu Road and passed a resolution on the floor of the house.
