Political activists from Pakistan occupied Kashmir on Friday protested in front of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva against human rights violations & exploitation of water resources by Pakistan. They also demanded Pakistan to dismantle terror infrastructure in PoK

The political activists from the PoK expressed concerns over the growing terror activities in the region. The activists held a protest on the sidelines of the 39th edition of United Nations Human Rights Session.

Chairman of United Kashmir People's National Party, Shaukat Ali Kashmiri, while addressing the media said, "PoK has remained a hub of terrorism for decades. Pakistan's agencies have created terrorists' infrastructure in the area to carry out terrorist activities in other parts of the Kashmir. It has become a launching pad.

He further said, “We have complete information that Pakistan has not changed its policies, it is merely statements by them to mislead the international community, but terrorist camps are running under the patronage of state of Pakistan."

Social Activist Shabir Choudhary told the media, “They have got a license to intimidate and frighten people. If need to be, they kill them. Now, with the new government in Pakistan, the situation is going to be worse because of Imran Khan. He is called as `Taliban Khan’ because a man who can give Rs. 30 crore from the official budget of the KPK (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) to madrasas, which is known as Taliban university, you can see how much he has given unofficially.”
