The head of Balawaristan National Front, a political party based in Gilgit Baltistan,, who lives in exile in Brussels, Belgium, Abdul Hamid Khan, said on Tuesday that the terror strike on a Indian Border Security Force camp near Srinagar Airport early this morning has categorically confirmed that Pakistan is using terror as an instrument to not only create instability in neighbouring India, but also to subjugate the people of Gilgit-Baltistan who want nothing less than freedom.
Pakistan wants to intentionally change its demography by providing shelter to terrorists. It is also known to be providing weapons to them. The indigenous people of Gilgit Baltistan have no right to keep arms. And, if they are found carrying any weapon, they are put behind bars under the Terrorist Act. Pakistani citizens on the other hand are allowed to possess any kind of weapon. If any issue erupts, Pakistani citizens, who are working as ISI agents, can commit genocide on the people of Gilgit Baltistan. Our indigenous people are in danger”, claimed Khan.
He squarely blamed Islamabad for using terrorists to create a divide among the people in the name of religion and sect. Khan, claimed that none of the people in the region are happy to live under Pakistan’s control. “If our people will be given a free voice without interference of Pakistan, then you will realize that the people are with Pakistan or not. Today, nobody is happy with Pakistani behavior. Pakistan has kept the people under its worst tyranny. Nobody supports Pakistani rule of law in that area,” said Khan.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan took to Twitter to express his opinion on the matter. He called it a black day for Pakistan’s democracy and remarked that the passage of this bill which allows a disqualified person to head a political party was tantamount to making a mockery of the constitution, simply to rescue Nawaz Sharif politically. He also said that the nation will not allow corrupt mafias to rule. This confirms the divide fracturing the Pakistani politics.
