CHINA ENDORSES BNF STAND ON DIAMAR-BHASHA DAM

CHINA ENDORSES BNF STAND ON DIAMAR-BHASHA DAM

China place conditions including ownership of the mega project. BNF appreciate China’s decision in this regard.

Pakistan Water Resources Secretary Shumail Khawaja said that Pakistan decided to take the dam project off the table, just before the 7th Joint Cooperation Committee (JCC) meeting with China, which was scheduled for November 21st in Islamabad. Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) Chairman Muzamil Hussain said the Chinese conditions were about taking ownership of the project.

It should be noted that BNF had also written letters to World Bank, Asian Development Bank and other world organizations about the Diamar-Bhasha dam, which is the sole property of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan. The administration of Pakistan has no legitimacy over Gilgit-Baltistan neither at international level nor at Pakistan level. Gilgit-Baltistan is UN recognized disputed region and Pakistan’s own constitution as well as its Supreme Court do recognize the disputed nature of this part of the world. It is the success of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan whose land had been snatched by Pakistani occupation regime, by force. The people of Diamer and particularly Chilas must feel happy for this success, because their protests and sacrifices against this dam project gained fruits. Pakistani occupation regime tried to oppress the struggle by firing at the peaceful demonstrators in Chilas and killing them.

BNF had demanded that the ownership of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan must be recognized before the international community, the administrative and financial matters of this Diamer-Bhasha dam must be given to the owners (Diamer and rest Gilgit-Baltistan) and free electricity should be given to Gilgit- Baltistan.

 

The people of Balawaristan (Pakistan occupied Gilgit-Baltistan) should understand that it is only Pakistan which does not recognizes their right of ownership over their lands including the area of Diamar-Basha dam, not any other country. It is Pakistan which snatched their right of self-determination in the UNCIP, by limiting them to vote either to Pakistan or India not for their freedom. As per UNCIP resolutions of 5th January 1949 and 28th April 1949 Gilgit-Baltistan and rest of Jammu & Kashmir can vote either to Pakistan or India.

It must be clear to the people of Gilgit-Baltistan that Pakistan has increased its forces thousand fold after 28th April 1949 instead of fulfilling its UNCIP obligations to withdraw its civilians and forces from Gilgit-Baltistan within 3 months.

It is Pakistan which has abolished the indigenous Rajgi system and replaced it by imposing its own citizens, changed the demography by sending more and more its own citizens besides Chinese and Afghans, by violating State Subject Rule of 1927.

It is good news that the people of PoGB (Pakistan occupied Gilgit-Baltistan) have also realised that Pakistan’s occupation has increased the atrocities and made them irrelevant in their own Fatherland/Motherland. It is Pakistan which demands self-determination for Indian side of J&K by giving reference of UNCIP resolutions, but denied the same to the people of  its own occupied PoGB (Pakistan occupied Gilgit Baltistan) and PoJK (Pakistan occupied Jammu and Kashmir). It is time to rise against the Pakistan’s occupation of the lands of PoGB in the name of CPEC, without giving the right of ownership to the indigenous people of Gilgit-Baltistan.

BNF demands that the lands which had been snatched forcefully by Pakistani forces must be returned to their owners. BNF also demands that Pakistan must refund all the direct and indirect taxes plundered from this land on behalf of this disputed land.  BNF also demands international community and UN to force Pakistan to free the political prisoners  of BNF and others who have been put behind bars by framing them on terrorism and sedition charges. BNF also demands that UNHRC must send its fact-finding mission to UN recognized Pakistan occupied Gilgit-Baltistan(PoGB) where these political leaders are facing prosecution after being severely tortured by Pakistani occupied administration, in the absence of free and impartial Judiciary.  BNF also demands that a Constitutional Assembly must be allowed to establish under the control of the UN after completely withdrawing Pakistani forces and its civilian terrorists, who have entered this region by violating UNCIP resolutions.

Pakistani firm whose chemicals were used to kill US troops seeks subsidy for Indiana plant

By Jennifer Griffin, Justin Fishel
Published March 22, 2013


A Pakistani fertilizer maker whose chemicals have been used in 80 percent of the roadside bombs that have killed and maimed American troops in Afghanistan is now seeking U.S. taxpayer subsidies in order to open a factory in Indiana. 
The request appears to be on hold pending further review, but the situation has stirred outrage in Congress, where some accuse the Pakistani government of halting efforts to clamp down on the bomb-making. 
For the past seven years, the U.S. government has known that the raw material calcium ammonium nitrate, or CAN, is making its way across the border into Afghanistan where the Taliban use it to fuel their most deadly weapons, namely the improvised explosive device. IEDs have long been the number one killer of U.S. and coalition troops. 
The material largely comes from Pakistani fertilizer maker the Fatima Group. But the Pakistani government has stymied attempts by the Pentagon to stop the flow of the…
