“Mr President-elect, we have been suffering for the past 73 years under the Pakistan colonialism.
And now since, China’s Belt and Road initiative has encroached into our land of Gilgit Baltistan we face double colonisation of Pakistan and China.
And the uncanny military and economic relation between Pakistan and China make this issue more pressing,” said Mirza, who is from Mirpur in PoK and is living in exile in the UK.
The activist listed Pakistan’s atrocities on the people living in the PoK.
The China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), as it is referred to, is a project that has brought our occupied territory under the double colonial rule of Pakistan and China,” he noted.
