New Delhi: In more trouble for Prime Minister Imran Khan and the Pakistan Army,huge protests were witnessed against the Pakistani establishment in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) on Thursday.
The protests come at a time when the Imran Khan-led government and Pakistan Army are facing a severe attack from the opposition parties, including Pakistani Muslim League-(N) which is headed by Nawaz Sharif.
It may be noted that the Gilgit Baltistan area, which is illegally occupied by Pakistan, has been witnessing protests for the past few weeks. The protesters are demanding the release of political prisoners, including prominent local activist Baba Jan. The demonstrators are regularly seen raising slogans against Pakistan government and demanding the immediate release of the political prisoners.
Last month, the Indian reiterated that the entire Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, including the areas of so-called Gilgit and Baltistan are an integral part of India by virtue of its accession in 1947 and the Pakistan government has no locus standi on territories illegally and forcibly occupied by it.
New Delhi’s reaction came after Pakistan announced to hold election for the legislative assembly of Gilgit-Baltistan on November 15.
