Bhim Singh welcomes India’s stand on ‘Gilgit-Baltistan’

Prof. Bhim Singh, Chairman, National Panthers Party and Member, NIC today hailed the reaction by the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India on the Pakistan’s attempt to legalize its occupation of Gilgit-Baltistan by treating this part of Indian Territory as 6th Province of Pakistan.

Prof. Bhim Singh expressed satisfaction vis-à-vis India’s commitment on Gilgit-Baltistan, a Territory of Jammu and Kashmir which was occupied by Pakistan in 1947 by kidnapping and illegally detaining the then Governor of Gilgit-Baltistan, Brig. Ghansara Singh who was appointed by Maharaja Hari Singh. Since then this area of Chitral, Gilgit and Baltistan comprising 32,500 sq. miles continues to be under the illegal occupation of Pakistan with India keeping mum on the plight of its habitants who were citizens of Jammu and Kashmir.

Prof. Bhim Singh thanked the Prime Minister of India for accepting his 40 years old demand that India should take up the cause of liberation of Gilgit-Baltistan from Pakistan and restoration of fundamental and human rights to its 1.5 million citizens who continue to remain as slaves of Pakistan’s military rulers sans basic civil, economic and political rights for the past six decades.

Prof. Bhim Singh said that policy of the Government of India under Dr. Manmohan Singh towards Gilgit and Baltistan has strongly focused the attention of the world that, “Entire State of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India by virtue of rejection of 1947. The so-called ‘Gilgit-Baltistan empowerment and Self-government Order-2009 was yet another cosmetic exercise intended to camouflage Pakistan’s illegal occupation”. This is for the first time that India has conveyed its message in clear terms to the world that there shall be no compromise on the issue.

Prof. Bhim Singh has urged on all the groups and political organizations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir everywhere including in Europe, UK, USA, POK to organize a universal, civil and political rights solidarity day with our people in Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral on February 1, 2010. He appealed to APNA, Gilgit-Baltistan Liberation Groups and their leaders to organize protests and demonstrations for the liberation of Gilgit-Baltistan from the illegal occupation of Pakistan.

  1. Recently in last November 2009, Pakistan annexed Gilgit-Baltistan as their 5th province quietly and held elections (rigged) and have installed a puppet regime. One person from Gilgit area has approached Pakistan Supreme Court and lodged a case that declaring the Gilgit-Baltistan as an Autonomous Province is the violation of the UN Resolutions and is against UNICP resolutions. Mr Shafqat Ali Khan, a resident from Tehsil Panyal, District Ghizar challenged the empowerment and self-governance status of Gilgit-Baltistan on Saturday, 06 March 2010.

    Then there was another incidence of malafide posting of the CJ of so called Azad JK held under Pakistan illegally since 1947 October.

    Then there were people from Baloch and Sindh area people demanding Pakistan to be declared as a ‘Terrorist’ state in London. They gathered in front of the BBC office to protest the illegal occupation of Balochistan since March 27, 1948. They observe it as a “Black Day”. Mir Ghulam Hussain, Information Secretary of Baloch Human Rights Council, UK said.

    Lakhu Luhana, Secretary of World Sindhi Congress had this to say, “Basically they are settling Taliban everywhere: they are settling Taliban in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, in Sindh and Balochistan”. Because they are their strateguc extensions. Luhana further said that Sindhis and Balochs are being denied their basic rights.

    Now, Pakistan blames India for all its ills. But UK/US ignores
    Pakistani atrocities deliberately and allows Pak Military to use all oppressive means to suppress their legitimate rights due to their personal vested interests of strategy over Russia, China and the Oil and Mineral reserves of that area.

    That is why I call Pakistan a courtesan state with multiple frugal husbands. They have hardly any regard for their own people too. Forget the regard for Kashmiris and Indians or other nationals. Pathetic and unfortunate.
    Dr. O. P. Sudrania
