PoK has suffered under Pakistan rule for 73 years: activist urges Biden's intervention
Asserting that Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) has been suffering for the past 73 years under Pakistan colonialism, human rights activist Amjad Ayub Mirza has urged the US President-elect Joe Biden to "heal" the "wounded people and divide people" of PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan (GB).
While talking about his problems as a representative of Gilgit-Baltistan, he said that given the US President-elect position, Biden is best suited to intervene in their matter and help resolve the issues.
This video message came a day after Mirza wrote to Biden on Monday urging him to "forcefully ask" Islamabad to withdraw its troops and non-state actors from the region.
In a letter to Biden, Mirza had said that Pakistan has turned the PoK into a training ground dotted with camps where young people and aliens (foreign nationals) are trained to become terrorists, who are then frequently infiltrated across the border into Indian union territory of Kashmir to cause havoc.
Mirza has requested Biden to grant him an audience at the White House so that he can present the case of illegal occupation by Pakistan in person.
