HUNZA: Karakoram National Movement (KNM) leader Comrade Naeemullah Baig has hailed PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s decision to apologize to the people of Balochistan for excesses done with them during the last 60 years, promising to compensate them for the injustices.
However, the KNM leader regretted that nobody has ever expressed remorse over the excesses and injustices meted out to the people of Gilgit-Baltistan since 1947. He said not only we have been living under occupation but also our resources are being looted by outsiders.
He appealed to the international community to pressure Pakistan to end the injustices, and give the people an opportunity to safeguard their identity and achieve basic constitutional, social, economic and political rights.
