GB Independence Day 2020: The History Behind the November 1st

The recent development in making Gilgit-Baltistan a province is a faint ray of hope for the 2 million population of Gilgit Baltistan. It has been the misfortune of Gilgit-Baltistan that the educated young generation here is still unable to think of the homeland. If the nation’s youth are deprived of the ability to think, and the purpose of education is only part of the employment. It is useless to pin hopes on the future of this nation. But even today, there is no shortage of people in this nation who have pain for the region who can play a savior role in the region’s future deprivations.
