New Delhi, Oct 26 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) General Secretary Ram Madhav said that it is important for India as well as the world to understand how Pakistan which has illegally occupied Gilgit-Baltistan area has been committing human rights violation in the region. While speaking at the launch of the book- Gilgit-Baltistan & its saga of unending human rights violations, Madhav said, “Gilgit-Baltistan is of a great significance for us. Today Belt & Road initiative and CPEC passes through that region. It is the link between Pakistan and China but please remember that it is a crucial link for India with Afghanistan and Central Asia. It's important we understand what's happening there; how Pakistan took over the strategically important geographical unit, illegally; how they're indulging in human rights violation there, how Shia population there has been subjected to innumerable atrocities.”
