Gilgit Baltistan: Italian Party takes BNF Chief into its Fold
The Radical Party in the Italian parliament has given membership to Balawaristan National Front (BNF) Chairman Abdul Hamid Khan in recognition of his services for highlighting the plight of the people of his region at the international level and suffering exile for it.
The representation was given to Mr Khan for highlighting the injustices being meted out to the masses of GB, human rights violations, especially eviction of local people from their land and lack of representation to the locals at the annual general meeting of the UNPO.
Recently, Abdul Hamid Khan told the UNPO meeting in Italy that in order to perpetuate its control in the region Pakistan was not only evicting the local people from their land but was also issuing leases of precious mineral resources in the region to Chinese and other companies in complete disregard to the opposition by the residents.
He told the participants that this act of Pakistan would not only deprive the locals of their rights on the natural resources but would also pave the way for snatching their political rights of deciding about their future as an independent nation.
