In the following interview with Faisal Qureshi, Rashid Sami speaks on Gilgit Baltistan crisis in the aftermath of the Kohistan and Chilas tragedies. The interview shows that the current sectarian violence, which is in the main, Shia genocide, is sponsored and manufactured by Pakistan’s military sate and civilian government. Rashid said that there is sectarian harmony among Shias and Sunnis in GB, however, sectarian violence was imported and implanted by Pakistan army for certain strategic gains when it tried to change the demographic and sectarian composition of the area by importing Jihadi-Deobandi militants of the SIpah-e-Sahaba and affiliates. Pakistani media and people are fooled in the name of a pseudo-provincial setup. He is of the opinion that both Pakistan army and civilian government have their hand colored with blood of the innocent people of Gilgit Baltistan.
