The above statement by the Prime Minister of Pakistan who is going to be the Chairman of the the most powerfull political body of Gilgit-Baltistan, the Gilgit-Baltistan Council, has a lot of weight and enough for bowing the heads of those who support PPP in Giglit-Baltistan. If a statement like this had come in pre-elections environment of Gilgit-Baltistan, PPP might not have been able to won a single seat. For sure the above statement of Primi Minister Gilani is very shamefull for the National Assembly of Pakistan because non of the real democratic institution could try to murder so brutally the independence and wishes of the people as it happened on the floor of National Assembly of Pakistan by its Prime Minister. The same way it will be more shamefull for supporters and elected members of PPP from Gilgit-Baltistan because their political masters of the time are throughing into dustbin in a very ruthless manner the sacrifices of the their brave a proud ancestors for the independence of all the people of Giglit-Baltistan.
Gilgit-Baltistan is Part of Kashmir, the consequence of this statement by the Prime Minister of Pakistan for sure will further strengthen the views of Nationalist and it will play a major role of booster for heightening their initiative both regionally and international, as they have the same opinion. Nationalists of Gilgit-Baltistan today seems to be true more than any one else on their stand that Gilgit-Baltistan is not part of Pakistan and Pakistan is an occupying force in the region so that Pakistan should draw its forces and administrative setup from Gilgit-Baltistan and let install and neutral setup under the supervision of UN. Nationalists seems to be much more mature than the Prime Minister of Pakistan as he came to undestood just recently that Giglit-Baltistan is not part of Pakistan rather it belongs to some third party and it may be Kashmir. But people of Gilgit-Baltistan know very well their history of freedom and libration from the occupation of Dogra Raj of Kashmir for which they struggled with both sword and pen. Could people of Gilgit-Baltistan do see such a histroy turning struggle once more and may be this time it will need more pen than sword and the force they may need to fight will not beDogras of Kashmir rahter someone else.
