Kargil, April 9 (Scoop News) – The protesters under the banner of Awami Khidmat Gar Committee Kargil under the leadership of Councilor LAHDC Kargil Aga Syed Razvi Hardass today protested against the massacre of Shia Muslims in Gilgit Baltistan particularly in Chilas at the hands of ISI-sponsored Jihadi-sectarian outfits.
This may be noted that Kargil (in Indian administered Kashmir) and Gilgit-Baltistan (a Pakistan administered area) are adjacent to each other; both areas have majority Shia population.
Thousands of people in Kargil participated in the agitation and condemned human rights violations in Gilgit Baltistan, massacres of Shia Muslims by the Jihadi-Deobandi terrorists and appealed the Government of Pakistan and Government of Gilgit Baltistan to take strong actions against the terrorist camps in Chilas and elsewhere in Pakistan and to take action against the killers.

While addressing to the gathering the speakers appealed the Government of India and Government of Pakistan to open Kargil Skardu road, visa relaxations and telephonic communication. The speakers also insisted to the people that the carnage in Chilas is not a Shia Sunni issue, while the Pakistan Government, Pakistan army in particular is knowingly diverting it as a sectarian issue to make the peace loving people of GB violent, and to change the demography of the region to make it conducive for cross-border Jihadi-Deobandi terrorism.
Meanwhile the President National Conference Kargil Haji Ghulam Hassan Khan in a statement condemned the killings of Shias in Gilgit Baltistan and appealed the Government of India to take up the issue with the International Community by representing the feelings of the people of Kargil. Like wise teachers of Islamia School Kargil also condemned the killings in Gilgit Baltistan.
