Independent Assembly for Gilgit Baltistan demanded

Karachi: An "Independent Gilgit Baltistan" is the altimate solution to current dissatisfaction of the people of Gilgit Baltistan, said speakers at a seminar organized by Gilgit Baltistan Students Alliance here on Sunday at Liaquat Memorial Hall in Karachi.
Seminar was chaired by Rashid Sami, president Baltistan Students Organization. Speaking to the seminar, Qari Abdul Jabbar Nasir, a prominent political analyst and senior journalist said granting a provincial status to Gilgit Baltistan is beyond the limits of constitutional jurisdiction of Pakistani Parliament because of the disputed status of the region. Pakistan is signatory of the United Nations' resolutions which clearely mention that Gilgit Baltistan is a disputed territory and the issue will be resolved in a plebiscite according to the will of the people. Instead of implementing UN resolutions, Pakistan continued not only contepting the UN resolutions but also defaming the people to Gilgit Baltistan. He said the reformes package is an eye-wash which is aimed at facilitating the PPP candidates in forth coming elections of Gilgit Baltistan Legislative Assembly. Nasir said it was PPP founding leader Zulfiqar Ali Bhotto who first deprived the people of Gilgit Baltistan of their identity, naming the region as Northern Areas.  He suggested that people should demand for a independent constitutional assembly instead of a legislative assembly. The current legistative assembly can only make legislation regarding traffic rules but not policy matters. Speaking to the seminar, cheif guest Rashid Sami said we salute the great leaders of Gilgit Baltistan who led the nation in getting rid of Dogra rule and established an independent state namely "Jamhooria Gilgit". Unfortunately, this great achievement could not be sustained due the poking behavior of the later generation which resulted in a long lasting slavery of the people. He condemned the arrest of the leaders of Gilgit Baltistan Democratic Alliance in Gilgit and demanded there release in the shortest possible time.
The seminar was followed by musical show.

  2. OUR PROTEST AND DEMANDS
    On the basis of historical,legal and constitutional facts we out-rightly rejected Pakistani constitutional colonial aggression on Gilgit Baltistan via Empowerment and Self-governance Order, 2009.
    Stop crating a new fifth Pakistani province which is an act of occupation against the state and the people of Jammu Kashmir.
    Jammu Kashmir National Independence Alliance United Kingdom (JKNIA UK) believe that Gigit Baltistan is an integral part of Jammu Kashmir.Pakistan withdraw its military and civilian setup from all parts of Jammu Kashmir (POK,POGB) and stop exploiting our wealth,natural, water resources and stop building of new dams in the area because of its disputed nature.We also demand for the return of our billions of dollars owing by Kashmiries and handed over by the control of Mangla Dam to us.
    The people of Jammu Kashmir won`t accept anymore forcibly geographical division of the state.Only Unified Independent Kashmir is a way forward for the millions of the peoples of South East Asia, those are looking for the development,regional peace,security and progress.
    Please sign the petition with these demands and circulate this petition to all of your contacts all over the world.
