Pakistan wants to make Gilgit Baltistan its province to save CPEC project, says activist

Geneva [Switzerland], September 22 (ANI): A political activist from Gilgit Baltistan has said that Pakistan is forced to make occupied Gilgit Baltistan as its fifth province as the multi-billion dollar China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project passing through the region is in the doldrums. Pakistan and China are facing intense pressure since after the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status by India.
"They is so much pressure from the Pakistani public to counter the Indian support which India is receiving on a global level after the abrogation of the Article 370 and Article 35 A of the Indian Constitution that they have to come up with some kind of gimmick, or some kind of announcements that could satisfy the people of Pakistan", said Dr Amjad Mirza, a political activist from Pakistan occupied Kashmir.


Dr Mirza believes that it is not easy for Pakistan to annex Gilgit Baltistan and make it the fifth province simply because Gilgit Baltistan is part of the Kashmir issue, which is lying pending in the United Nations.
"Imran Khan's announcement that they are going to give transitional provincial status to Gilgit Baltistan is just carrot and stick policy because if they are honest in developing Gilgit Baltistan or if they really want Gilgit Baltistan to integrate into Pakistan, the first thing they should do is to release all the political prisoners.


"Pakistan should abolish Schedule IV that deprives all the citizens of Gilgit Baltistan from freedom of speech and finally they should stop all land grabs, they should stop the construction of Diamer-Bhasha Dam and they should take other steps towards restoring human rights in Gilgit Baltistan. Well, that is not the case. So, by announcing that they are going to give Gilgit Baltistan a status of province and making it the fifth province of Pakistan they are trying to influence the electorate of Gilgit Baltistan because in November, elections are being held in Gilgit Baltistan"


The CPEC project enters Pakistan via Gilgit Baltistan from China's Xinjiang province.
The CPEC is the flagship project of Beijing's ambitious multi-billion-dollar Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). India has protested to China over the project as it is being laid through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. (ANI)

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
