Gilgit Baltistan, POK and Balochistan: All are different cases

Letter From

Balochistan is a province of Pakistan legally or illegally. The province has seats in Pakistani parliament and constitutional part of it. But Gilgit Baltistan is not part of Pakistan and it’s not part of PoK, it’s a part of J&K, which is constitutional part of India. Pakistan has deprived its from all kind of rights including fundamental rights, right to access to Justice and right of our own resources and land, because of religious differences with Pakistan and PoK has no such discriminations.

PoK consists 7000 Sq Km area, while Gilgit Baltistan is 72000 Sq Km area. PoK has no importance, it was either part of Jammu or Kashmir in the past, while Gilgit was full province of J&K state. PoK has no importance while Gilgit Baltistan is the most important part of J&K for all aspects including resources and strategically.

Gilgit Baltistan issue should not be diluted by mixing it either with PoK or Balochistan. There is only one  common thing between Gilgit Baltistan and Balochistan, that is CPEC. CPEC starts from Gilgit and ends in Balochistan and for that purpose we both should cooperate each other. We have only one reason which link us with PoK that is its disputed nature. Both the areas are under the control of Pakistan. Gilgit Baltistan is totally different from PoK culturally, historically, linguistically and geographically.
