    by SouthAsiaNews

    Pakistan, September 12: Pakistan’s continuing repression of Gilgit Baltistan is leading to a change in religious, ethnic and cultural demography. The region has abundant natural resources but people here lead a miserable life as Pakistanis ruthlessly exploit its assets and control the region. To address the violation of human rights and other issues concerning Gilgit Baltistan, experts came together at the Henry Stimson Center in Washington DC in an event titled “Resources on the Roof of the World: International Politics and Sustainable Development in the Greater Himalayan Region”. They expressed their support for people of Gilgit-Baltistan, who want self-rule.
