Protests erupted today in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir with leaders and people alleging that their life has become “living hell” because of terror camps.
People in Muzaffarabad, Kotli, Chinari, Mirpur, Gilgit, Diamer and Neelum Valley towns claim that terror training camps have severely affected their life.
They say that their region is being used by the ISI to further its proxy war against India.
“Unless these terrorists are not wiped out completely from our soil, unless these terrorists are completely eliminated till the time these terrorists are provided with shelters in our homes till then the problem will not be resolved,” said a protester.
Terror training camps have been thriving in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) for years, according to people living across the area who have shown resentment to the Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI for having made their region a haven for anti-social elements.
PoK leaders like Arif Shahid exposed the ISI terror nexus in the region and paid for it with their lives.
Shahid has been found on record saying that the poor people of Pakistan are being exploited by the ISI to wage a Jihad against India in which only the Pakistan Army is interested.
Shahid fought tooth and nail against Pakistan’s oppression in PoK before he was shot outside his residence in Rawalpindi on May 14, 2013. He was 62. The investigation into Shahid’s murder is still inconclusive, and there is no closure to the cold-blooded murder, so far. The ISI is blamed for conspiring and executing Shahid’s murder.
The people of PoK have been demanding the removal of terror camps for years but the state has always turned a deaf ear.
Lauding the efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for exposing Islamabad’s real face before the world, the Shiv Sena on Thursday urged the BJP-led NDA regime at the Centre to fully support the people of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
“It is a very big thing that the Pakistani Government claims that people in Pakistan occupied Kashmir are very happy in their region and they try to show the same picture again and again in the UN or to our Kashmiri people,” Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said.
