The war of independence is still unfinished on one front, we have yet to achieve freedom for our brothers in the parts of Kashmir illegally occupied by Pakistan. By doing so, they will become a part of independent India, stated the PMO’s Minister of State Jitendra Singh. Moreover, it is definitely our ethical and national responsibility to stand by the people of PoK, he added further. It is time to expose, the sham and the spurious complaints of Pakistan to the whole world, about the supposed atrocities in Jammu and Kashmir. In the near future, the world’s attention will be drawn to the issue of the atrocities being perpetrated by Pakistan and the violation of human rights of the people in Gilgit-Baltistan. said Jitendra Singh. If the Indian flag is hoisted in Pakistan occupied Kashmir the ‘Tiranga Yatra’ will culminate at Kotli, informed Jitendra Singh, while speaking to the media.
The aggressive role adopted by the Central Government, regarding PoK, has started receiving a positive response. Senge Sering, the Chief Director of the USA based organisation, Gilgit-Baltistan National Congress has slammed Pakistan and expressed confidence that if Pakistan withdraws its army from Gilgit-Baltistan in the first place, there will be a solution to the Kashmir issue. He also claimed that since Pakistan had taken forcible possession of Gilgit-Baltistan, India and the neighbouring countries ought to pressure Pakistan with regard to this matter. ‘Gilgit-Baltistan’ is not a part of Pakstan, it is a disputed territory and so representatives of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan must be included in the discussions over the issue demanded Senge Sering.
In the meantime, ever since the Government of India adopted an aggressive stance regarding PoK, the Pakistani analysts have begun attacking it. The Pakistani analysts claim, that India is using the issue like a decoy to divert focus from the atrocities being perpetrated in Jammu & Kashmir. But many Pakstani scholars claim, that the blood spill that occurred before the elections in ‘PoK’ and the fraud that occurred during the elections, will only serve to further disgrace Pakistan. At the same time, these analysts have also warned that Pakistan would end up bearing the brunt of its internal politics and the furore of discontent in ‘ PoK would eventually backfire’
