PoJK, PoGB diaspora demonstrate outside Pakistan consulate, demand release of arrested activists

The diaspora belonging to Pakistan-occupied Jammu Kashmir (PoJK) and Pakistan-occupied Gilgit Baltistan (PoGB) living overseas recently demonstrated outside the Pakistani consulate in England to demand the release of leaders and social activists of the region.

The protest was organized, demanding the immediate release of the social activists and leaders arrested by the law enforcement agencies of PoGB and PoJK, ANI news agency reported.

A local member of England’s POJK and POGB diaspora during the protest told the news agency, “We have been sitting on a protest here for the rights of our brethren back home. Activists and local leaders of POGB and POJK have been arrested by law enforcement agencies and have been put in Mirpur Jail."

“We demand that these activists be released effectively immediately. Our people have been peacefully demanding their rights inflicting brutalities upon us. We have lost some of our people during these protests, those people were innocent. We demand that the people responsible for these atrocities be brought to justice.” he added.

Highlighting the issue of power cuts, he said huge amounts of electricity are produced by the use of resources available in that area.
