Gilgit-Baltistan: Government is Treating GB as a Colony, GB Bar Council

Posted on

GILGIT (Dawn): The Gilgit-Baltistan Bar Council has accused the federal ministry of Kashmir affairs of treating the region as a colony and ruling it through remote control.

The bar council has written a letter to the Senate’s Standing Committee on Human Rights, highlighting the deprivation of the people and asking it to press the federal government to give GB its constitutional status. The letter has been sent to the committee chairman Afrasiab Khattak.

The letter states as the status of GB remained unclear due to unresolved Kashmir dispute, saying that GB people didn’t have the constitutional and political rights enjoyed by the people of Jammu and Kashmi
