Human rights group from Kashmir asks UN to probe mass graves in Gilgit, Balochistan

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], February 16 (ANI): In a bid to highlight the plight of minority communities in Pakistan, a human rights group from Kashmir has issued a memorandum calling on United Nations to look into the humanitarian crisis in Pakistan occupied Kashmir and probe the mass graves in Gilgit and Balochistan.
"We 'Voice for Peace and Justice' also demand Human Rights Council (HRC) and urge the United Nation's team to send a high powered fact-finding mission to probe the presence of mass graves in Gilgit and Balochistan, particularly in Khuzdar district and HRC use its efforts to pressurise Pakistan government to stop human rights violation in Gilgit, Balochistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (Pok)," the Voice for Peace and Justice (VPJ) said in a memorandum.
The rights group also asked the world body "to force Pakistan to stop the killing of innocent people of Pakistan occupied Kashmir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan."
"HRC must ask Pakistan for the immediate withdrawal of forces from so-called Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan part of the Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir forcibly occupied by Pakistan in 1947," VPJ said in the memo.
It further asked the Human Rights Council to put pressure on Pakistan to stop human rights violations in all parts of Jammu and Kashmir, especially in Gilgit-Baltistan and POK.
HRC must ask Pakistan immediately to stop sending terrorists, weapons, and anti-India propaganda on social media in Jammu and Kashmir and close terror base camp in Pakistan, VJP said.
"The Voice Peace and Justice - a platform of young and vibrant youths of Jammu and Kashmiri (UT) demand intervention of the HRC to ask Pakistan to withdraw its troops from Pakistan occupied Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, which it has illegally occupied by Pakistan in 1947 and stop sending terrorists to Jammu and Kashmir for its interests in the name of so-called Jihad," the rights group said.
It further said that during the COVID-19 pandemic, reports emerged that rations were being denied to minority Hindus and Christians in the coastal areas of Karachi. The Saylani Welfare Trust, carrying out the relief work, said: "that the aid was reserved for Muslims alone."
Gilgit-Baltistan is economically rich in minerals, forests, water, and tourism. Historically it was part of Jammu and Kashmir and two famous rulers of the state were belonging to the Gilgit-Baltistan region.
Religious discrimination in Pakistan is a serious issue for the human rights situation in modern-day Pakistan. Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Shias and Ahmadis among other religious minorities often face discrimination and at times are even subjected to violence. In some cases, Christian churches and Ahmadi mosques and the worshippers themselves have been attacked. (ANI)

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
