New Delhi: People in large numbers in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) are protesting against the Pakistani establishment and demanding freedom, in a video available with a leading news channel.
The video which is exclusively available with CNN-IBN shows people protesting in several areas including Muzaffarabad, Gilgit and Kotli, with the protesters shouting pro-india slogans.
Some protestors have also said on camera that Pakistan has no right to use force on them and even that India is better place to live. In the video, they are also heard demanding jobs and other rights.
The video shows that anti-Pakistan protests are on the rise in PoK and the Pakistani force is using brutal force to shut their voices.
The report said that the protest can’t be called sporadic, as the swelling crowd, and the police and Army presence to reign them in is a clear indicator that these agitations are not a one-off but a force to reckon with.
