POK & Gilgit-Baltistan are a live example of how Punjabi Dominated Pakistan Army has mistreated different Ethnic groups from different Occupied regions. We have brought to our readers in the past multiple articles on how Punjabi dominated Pakistan Army has committed Genocide of people in Pakistan Occupied Balochistan and Pakistan Occupied Sindh. Here we bring to our readers the hardships faced by people of POK & Gilgit-Baltistan at the hands of Punjabi Dominated Pakistan Government and Pakistan Army. Definitely POK & Gilgit-Baltistan deserve something far better than Pakistan.
Healthcare system in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) which was already in very bad state due to state apathy, is now collapsing under the Chinese Corona Virus outbreak. The region which has already registered 51 corona cases, is struggling to provide treatment to patients suffering from other healthcare-related problems.
In a viral video from Muzaffarabad in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK), a patient with a fractured leg is seen being moved to a hospital on a bed due to lack of ambulances. This reflects the state of the healthcare system in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).
The region, which has a large number of people settled abroad especially in UK, lacks proper laboratories & testing kits for Chinese Corona Virus suspects. The suspected patients are complaining about the absence of doctors and other medical staff at the so-called Chinese Corona Virus (COVID) clinics set by the govt in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).
As the stooge govt has implemented lock down in the wake of Chinese Corona Virus outbreak, the people are suffering because of the unavailability of food and medical supplies.
People are running short on food supplies and are complaining that overpricing of essential commodities.
In Pakistan, there is no coordination among the federal & provincial governments. The opposition as well as the ruling govt, have no understanding of how to deal with the situation so to divert people’s attention they have expedited their anti-India propaganda.
What other work they have instead of condemning & defaming India on the commands of their master Pakistan?
And because Government of India has choked their sources of income through illegal Pakistani channels, they are more frustrated these days & doing anti-India propaganda in leaps & bound.
Keeping a “complete silence” on the brutalities committed by Pakistan and its military’s highhandedness on besieged people living in the illegally occupied territories of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir & Pakistan Occupied Gilgit-Baltistan, so-called Dummy President of POK, Masood Khan urges the world to not forget Kashmir during the crisis. He indirectly pointed of not receiving any assistance from the occupying Pakistan Army.
Giving warning of the catastrophic outcome of the situation rapidly developing in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK), he alleged that Chinese Corona Virus patients in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir are not being given proper care. Pakistan has not supplied Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), Face Masks, Gloves for Medical workers.
Dummy President of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir was talking about Indian Kashmir and its people who are far better in position than the other part of Kashmir occupied by Pakistan where there is no health care facility and doctors are regularly protesting and demanding equipment for their own safety.
People living in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) & Pakistan Occupied Gilgit-Baltistan, who are protesting against tyranny of Pakistan Army and Pakistan Government are denied any medical assistance and testing. Infact the people from other parts of Pakistan who are infected with Chinese Corona Virus are being pushed in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan in quarantine centers so that the virus spread among the revolting local population and in the absence of any medical supplies, a vast majority of Population in these parts die without treatment.
A person said, “the infected patients are being pushed to POK so that they can show high level of infection and can beg foreign aid from International community. Pakistan is using Pakistan occupied Kashmir as a begging bowl in front of the world. We also see large movement of Infected patients being pushed to the Line of Control with India and Pakistan Army is giving them covering fire to infilrate them in India.”
He further said, “Pakistan government is unconcerned that their action is resulting in India retaliating and innocent civilians are dying as a result of Pakistan’s apathy towards Kashmiris. Pakistan’s ultimate aim is to bleed India, Pakistan does not care if in that process Kashmiris from both sides of the Line of Control (LOC) die.”
In fact some the Chinese Virus vacines are sent in some centers to use people in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) and Pakistan Occupied Gilgit-Baltistan as guinea pigs for testing of the Chinese vaccines. Pakistan does not care of large number of Kashmiris die of Chinese Virus. They have cordoned off Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and the residents are not allowed to travel to other parts of Pakistan including to Punjab province.
European Parliament and Organisation of Kashmir Coalition had recently organised ‘Chinese Corona Virus Covid-19 Kashmir Conference’ via video link in which MEPs along with others participated to spew venom against India & prove their friendship to Pakistan by targeting India over Jammu And Kashmir.
However the irony is that the religious minorities especially Hindus & Christians, residents in the illegally occupied territory of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) are facing discrimination at the time of Chinese Corona Virus outbreak as they are denied benefits under Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme launched by Pakistan’s PM, ImranKhan. The paid European MEPs failed to raise the Human Rights issues of Christians and Hindus who are denied ration in Pakistan.
The programme which was launched with an aim to provide monetary help to those in need under which Rs. 12,000 grant is to be provided to around 12 million families across Pakistan including those from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) but Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) is not getting anything.
Just like all other schemes announced by Pakistan, this too has excluded an already discriminated and deprived Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) population of the benefits, as the residents have received nothing but despair after standing in long queues for hours outside the banks.
But on reaching the designated place they are being told that they are not part of the scheme even though they meet the eligibility criteria.
Earlier also, people in Pakistan occupied Gilgit-Baltistan accused Islamabad of not providing monetary aid and required healthcare equipment to deal with Chinese Corona Virus in the region which is already backward.
They said that it’s very unfortunate that Pakistan Occupied Gilgit-Baltistan has not received its share of 200 million in aid received by #Pakistan from the World Bank to deal with the pandemic which supposed to be distributed equally to all provinces and regions in #Pakistan.
Pakistan has always been indifferent to ppl of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) & Pakistan Occupied Gilgit-Baltistan even at this time when they are suffering from Chinese Corona Virus, Pakistan Govt is neither providing ’em essential food items nor giving them any sort of financial aid, pushing the lives of beleaguered ppl into complete darkness.
ImranKhan and the military establishment in #Pakistan who selected him as a ‘puppet PM of Pakistan’ are best advised to get rid of their #Kashmir obsession and devote their energies for the betterment of the people of Pakistan. Earlier they do it, the better it will be!
Amjad Ayub Mirza, a political activist from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) has alleged that #Pakistan has been regularly violating ceasefire at the #LOC these days to infiltrate terrorists into #Kashmir amid Chinese Corona Virus spread.
He said, “It’s #Pakistan which is responsible for ceasefire violation and we the people of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) are very much aware of this fact that its always #Pakistan who initiates a ceasefire violation to which #India retaliates”.
A 20 kg of flour sold for 700 Pakistani rupees is now being sold for more than 1200 Pakistani rupees. 23 constituencies in Pakistan occupied Kashmir are badly affected by food shortage.
Earlier Chief Minister of Gilgit Baltistan Hafiz Hafeezur Rehman had lambasted Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan’s Government for its lack of financial and medical support at the time of Chinese Corona Virus pandemic and had demanded Rs 1.75 billion for managing the crisis.
A few days back, the Traders Association in Pakistan occupied Kashmir had announced that they will keep their businesses open for locals from from April 18 onwards from 10 am to 4 pm and extend it throughout Ramadan festivities. The association has asked for a waiver of current fiscal year’s taxes, compensation for losses resulting from lock down, issuance of interest-free loans, exemption from payment of utility bills in view of the hardships faced by the small businessmen due to the indifference of the Government.
One of the principal opposition parties in Pakistan, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has also blamed Pakistan PM Imran Khan Government’s response in handling Chinese Corona Virus outbreak. PPP’s Gilgit Baltistan President Amjad Hussain had accused Imran Khan Government of holding back Rs 2.5 Billion which could have been effectively used to tackle the Chinese Corona Virus outbreak.
Many other NGOs in Hunza area of Gilgit Baltistan have also alleged negligence in the distribution of relief materials to the needy.
Last month, many exiled Pakistan Occupied leaders had praised the Indian Government for its fight against the Chinese Corona Virus Pandemic. One of the exiled leaders, Dr Amjad Ayub Mirza living in Glasgow, England said, “It is a highly commendable act that PM Modi has announced a ‘janta curfew’ on March 22 to combat Chinese Corona Virus.”
Mirza said the situation in Pakistan is dire and blamed the Pakistani leadership for its inept handling of outbreak and added that there is a shortage of quarantine facilities and test kits. “The border between China and Pakistan should be closed as the spread of the deadly virus in the region is exploding.”
“Hospitals where Chinese Corona Virus patients are kept lack running water and proper toilets. Under the current situation, the border between Kargil and Gilgit-Baltistan should be opened and a team of Indian Doctors and medical experts should be sent to help Pakistan Occupied Kashmir residents,” he said.
Senge Hasnan Sering, another exiled politician activist also praised Indian PM Narendra Modi and called Pakistani leadership reckless. He said, “Indian PM Modi is playing a constructive and supportive role as is expected of the world’s fourth-largest economy.”
His Policy of “sabka sath, sabka vikas” (No citizen left behind) has earned him recognition and appreciation from the opposition parties. Although Gilgit Baltistan is a direct neighbor of China’s Xinjiang, its inhabitants are getting Chinese Corona Virus infection from a completely unexpected location like Iran. When compared to other Pakistani provinces, Gilgit-Baltistan has the highest number of Positive Chinise Corona virus cases in proportion to the population size and a very high recovery rate of 47%.
Divulging further on the heinous activities conducted by Pakistan, he said there can be 3 reasons for them to do so.
1st, due to the outbreak, the establishment has been exposed over the mishandling of the pandemic. So they initiated violation to divert the minds of its people.
2nd reason is that they want to “infiltrate jihadi terrorists” adding that the ceasefire violations provide these terrorists cover fire & facilitates infiltration. And now Pakistan decided to infiltrate corona positive terrorists so that they can travel Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir & spread the virus.
Citing the 3rd reason, he added Pakistan Army is planning to have “a massive deployment of its troops in Pakistan Occupied Gilgit-Baltistan. Another reason of the deployment could be the planning to open a new front on the border of Indian Kargil & Pakistan Occupied Gilgit-Baltistan so that Jihadis can be infiltrated from there in future.
In a press conference, Pakistan’s DG-ISPR was rejecting India’s claim that Islamabad is involved in ceasefire violation and is purposefully infiltrating terrorist in India especially in Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, now his own people are busting their lies and exposing Pakistan’s real face of terrorism.
Pakistan Army should be ashamed of itself that even at this time when the world is standing united to fight against the deadly contagion, the military establishment continues to commit atrocities on innocent people!
It is happening for decades, they have to keep a low intensity war going, even if civilians die.
Points to Ponder
It looks as if Pakistan is punishing Pakistan Occupied Kashmir for not having much success in terror infiltration into India. While the treatment of Shia in POK and Gilgit-Baltistan is understandable, nothing explains the attitude of Pakistan towards the Kashmir territory it holds.
A question being asked is “Does Pakistan deserve possession of Gilgit-Baltistan or Pakistan Occupied Kashmir? Should People of Gilgit-Baltistan and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) not join back Indian Union and be a part of Rich, culturally diverse and a prosperous nation?
