Protest held in London against China's expansionist policies

Indian Diaspora and a group of demonstrators led by displaced Muslims of Iranian origin demonstrated outside the Chinese Embassy in London on Sunday demanding their rights.

They were joined by a few activists from Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

The demonstrators demanded that China should free Hong-Kong and stop exploiting resources in Gilgit-Baltistan, the part of erstwhile princely state of Jammu and Kashmir.

They raised slogans 'Down with China' alleging it an occupier.

Dr Amjad Ayub Mirza, a political activist from PoK said, "We are the victim of Chinese aggression as the China Pakistan Economic Corridor passes through Gilgit-Baltistan and over 6,000 Chinese army and engineers are present in PoK with an aim to expand CPEC project".

Anti-China protests have erupted in parts of the world since after face-off between Indian and Chinese forces in Galwan on June 15.

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."

Hong Kong: Anti-China media tycoon Jimmy Lai arrested under contentious law

In a controversial move, Jimmy Lai, a media mogul in Hong Kong was arrested reportedly under a new security law. He is the owner of Next Digital Ltd which runs the flagship newspaper, Apple Daily. Police personnel were seen carrying boxes out of Lai's organisation's office. The news organisation has backed pro-democracy protests rocking the city since last year when Beijing tried to enforce a controversial extradition law which critics said was an assault on Hong Kong's autonomy. Large-scale, and sometimes violent, protests have gripped the territory in opposition to an alleged assault on the 'one country, two systems' principle which has ensured that the former British colony enjoys greater personal freedoms than mainland China. Beijing's critics have also slammed the new security law, calling it a tool to crush dissent and protests. It contains punishment for charges like secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces. Lai has reportedly been accused of the last one. Many countries like the United States of America and the United Kingdom have also unequivocally criticised the security law. However, pro-China voices claim that the legislation will help end unrest and bring 'normalcy' back to the city. Watch the full video for more.

PoK: Higher education remains elusive amid continuous systemic harassment

Fraught with both economic and political hurdles, the education system in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) has proven to be a major disappointment. While on one side, the system run by military generals has deliberately denied youths their share of education through its marginalizing designs, the local administration on the other side has ignored the everyday sufferings of the students. A periodic fee hike is one of their biggest concerns but the authorities have not bothered to pay any heed. The university in the region has not only charged them the entire course fee despite lockdown but has also announced a hike. Students have demanded a rollback saying that hike would render double whammy as the economy of households in the region has already been affected severely. With limited schools and an even dismal enrollment, the primary and secondary level education produces a very low number of potential graduates in PoK... but even they suffer systemic assaults. Students this year were made to pay their fee in the name of alternative methods to be adopted by universities to impart education during pandemic lockdown but the authorities didn't fulfill promise once they received fees in full. Students were made to procure internet connections of their own which was earlier promised otherwise.
