UNHRC: PoK activists raised slogans against Islamabad
Activists from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) recently raised slogans against Islamabad and asked authorities to vacate Kashmir and allow them to live a peaceful life.
They participated in a demonstration organised by United Kashmir People’s National Party (UKPNP) at the Broken Chair during the 54th Session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on Monday, ANI reported.
Speaking to ANI, Nasir Aziz Khan, UKPNP spokesperson said people in Gilgit Baltistan have been on the streets protesting inflation and terrorism for many months.
He said, “United Kashmir People’s National Party has organised this protest in front of United Nations on 54th session of the UNHRC to highlight the issue we are facing in PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan. People are on the streets against the hefty charges on electricity bills, inflation, terrorism.”
Pashtuns, Sindhi, Baloch and activists from Bangladesh also participated in the event and they jointly condemned extremism and terrorism.
Meanwhile, UKPNP chairperson Shaukat Ali Kashmiri said, “Actually, people under occupied Pakistan have been protesting for over 6 months. Jammu and Kashmir was a historical nation which was divided forcefully by Pakistan.”
