Pakistan
is facing embarrassment continuously in international forum in Kashmir issue.
Pakistan Occupied Kashmir’s Gilgit-Baltistan activist Senge H Sering’s recent
statement adds to the list of embrassment faced by Pakistan in recent times. He
called the Pakistan occupied Kashmir’s northern region Gilgit-Baltistan a part
of India.


While
talking at the recently happened United Nations Human Rights Council meet, he
said that "Gilgit-Baltistan is a
part of India. Members of the United Nations need to realise that Pakistan has
become a big stumbling block for last 70 years,".
He also leveled
accusations on Pakistan regarding the change in demography of the Gilgit-Baltistan
region in the past few decades after the abolishment of State Subject Rule in
1984.


"You will be surprised that while Pakistan is trying
to be the attorney of Kashmiri people, it has changed the demography in a huge
manner,
" he said.


Gilgit-Baltistan is currently a portion of the disputed Pakistan
occupied Kashmir. It borders Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province to the west, and Jammu
and Kashmir to the south. Gilgit-Baltistan region is not having the state of
either a province or a state but is given a semi-provincial status. He also
praised the Indian government’s move to grant union territory status to Ladakh
and added that he hopes to have such a model in his area Gilgit-Baltistan.
