“Gilgit Baltistan cannot end rights abuses without the help of the international community,” the group said.

Washington: Asserting that Pakistan is an occupier of Gilgit-Baltistan, a group representing people from the area in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) has sought help from US lawmakers over the deteriorating human rights conditions there.

“Gilgit Baltistan cannot end rights abuses without the help of the international community. The US must continue to be a beacon of light for the democratic spirit, to demand an end to colonial rule and support Gilgit-Baltistan in its struggle for a free nation,” Senge Sering of the Washington-based Institute of Gilgit-Baltistan told lawmakers during a recent event at the Capitol Hill.

At an event organised by Senator Tim Kaine to mark Vietnam Human Rights Day last week, Sering said the UN Security Council resolution 47 declares Pakistan an occupier and aggressor in Gilgit Baltistan and calls for its withdrawal.

The event was addressed by several top American lawmakers including Senators John Cornyn, John McCain, Kaine and Mark Warner and House of Representative members Barbara Comstock.
