No difference with govt on PoK, but the way it dealt with 370: Tharoor

IndiaTimes Friday, 20 September 2019
"I don't have any serious difference with the government's stand on the PoK but internally I differ with the government. They have violated spirit of the Constitution. Pakistan has no right on the PoK and they have given the territory to China which does not belong to them," Tharoor said.

Extrajudicial killings in PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan not acceptable: Activist at UNHRC

National Equality Party JKGBL, Chairman Sajjad Raja while speaking at UNHRC's 44th session on July 09 said that the extrajudicial killings taking place in Pakistan occupied so called 'Azad' Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan are not acceptable. He said, "The citizens of Azad Kashmir stand before you today, seeking intervention on the repression and extra judicial killings of our people - 'AZAD' means 'free', but this is a false label that has been attached to our people to hide the truth in a disgusting way. In fact, any dissent towards Pakistan is mercilessly crushed through lent officers, army atrocities and the ISI. Today even the Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir is agitating against the Pakistani bullying for forcing constitutional changes through the 14th amendment in Act 74 down our throats in the name of Islam and brotherhood."
