PoK has witnessed a series of protests by residents in the past against the Pakistan government for the atrocities and human rights violation by Pakistani forces.
About 100 individuals owing allegiance to Jammu and Kashmir National Students Federation (JKNSF), along with some members of Jammu and Kashmir National Awami Party (JKNAP), carried out a demonstration rally in Muzaffarabad area of PoK, condemning the oppressive rule by Pakistani authorities and the local PoK government.
The protesters carried placards which read “Kashmir Bachanay Nikley Hain, Aao Hamaray Saath Chalo”.
Earlier there have been massive protests in Gilgit Baltistan over Pakistan Government’s efforts to acquire huge piece of land in the garb of development through CPEC. Even Prime Minister of POK has expressed the desire to secede from Pakistan. However his voice was immediately silenced on directions from Pak Army.
