Jammu, Aug 14 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) leader Harsh Dev Singh today said the protest in Balochistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) is a clear indication that they are sick of the Pakistani rule and have rejected them.

Singh said the protest in Balochistan and other parts of the Pakistan occupied Kashmir should be an eye opener for the supporters of Islamabad in Jammu and Kashmir.

"They must realize that the people leaving in these places, they are also sick of the Pakistani rule and they have rejected Pakistan," Singh told ANI here.

"The human rights that are going on in Pakistan and the violation of their fundamental rights and all these incidents must be an eye opener for these people, who are raking up pro-independence slogans on our side of the borders and definitely they should take cues from their counterpart in Balochistan and Baltistan and other parts of PoK," he added.

Raising 'anti-Pakistan' slogans, the protesters took to the streets in Gilgit town of PoK against human rights abuses and crackdown by the Pakistani security forces.

Over 500 youth, including Gilgit's top political activist Baba Jan, have been taken into custody by the Pakistani security forces. (ANI)
