‘Try Pakistan for war crimes in Gilgit-Baltistan’: Activist’s appeal to UN
PoK activist Amjad Ayub Mirza has demanded that Pakistan be tried for war crimes in Gilgit-Baltistan. He said that history is proof that Pakistan has committed many crimes in PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan and urged the Indian government to take up the issue at the United Nations. Mirza also said that Pakistan has also committed crimes against humanity in PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan. He added that the Pakistan Army’s brutalities in Balochistan also qualify as war crimes. Mirza said that Pakistan’s move to declare Gilgit-Baltistan its fifth province is directly connected to the China-Pakistan economic corridor. Mirza said that Pakistan is trying to hold election and get a legislature elected which would then pass a resolution declaring Gilgit-Baltistan as a province of Pakistan. He added that locals have not even been consulted about the CPEC and said that China wants the region to be fully under Chinese control via Pakistan. Mirza also urged India to approach the United Nations to ensure that these projects are halted till the Kashmir issue is resolved. Watch the full video for all the details.
