Dr. Misfar Hassan Khan, President, Jammu Kashmir Liberation League Europe, has raised his voice against the loot and exploitation by political parties of Pakistan in PoK and Gilgit-Baltistan and said, "I want to convey my message to Pakistan’s political parties who have opened their shops in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, they need to be closed down. The exploitation of the region should be stopped now."
Misfar emphasised on the matter at a recent conference organised by Kashmiri leaders belonging to Jammu Kashmir National Independence Alliance in Leeds.
PoK Prime Minister Farooq Haider has also stated against Pakistani occupation during the conference and the Kashmiri leaders and another politician like Sajjad Raja has supported the same.
"It pains me that from day one Pakistan has been indulging in illegal, immoral and unconstitutional activities," Sajjad Raja, General Secretary, United Kashmir National Party Europe was quoted while addressing the conference.
"Pakistan has always considered Pakistani Kashmir as its property. Through media, I wish to make it clear to the Pakistani establishment that, Kashmiri people are not their slaves," Sajjad added further.
Pakistan Occupied Kashmir which is also known as Azad Jammu and Kashmir, AJK or Azad Kashmir, is an illegally occupied self-governing administrative division of Pakistan. The territory lies west of the Indian-administered state of Jammu and Kashmir and was previously part of the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir, which ceased to exist as a result of the first Kashmir war fought between India and Pakistan in 1947.
