Islamabad: 09 April, 2012: Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has expressed shock over the occurrence of a devastating avalanche engulfing an entire camp of the Pakistan army in Sakardu on Saturday. It was a sad day for Pakistan as the army lost about 124 soldiers deployed at remote northern border with India since 2 decades.

The battalion headquarter of the Northern Light Infantry (NLI),an operational regiment based in Gilgit-Baltistan, was situated at the urban region of the Gayari. Eleven were civilians among the casualties suffered in this remote area billed as the world’s highest battleground near Siachen.

The victims belonged to the NLI operational sub-division of Northern Scouts, Gilgit Scouts, and Karakorum Scouts. The 11 civilians were reported to be Ministry of Defense (MOD) official. The intense rescue efforts were under- way on Sunday, and the soldiers were braving inclement weather without any headway.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani lauded the sacrifices of the soldiers, paid glowing tribute to their courage and expressed sympathies with their families and prayed to Allah for eternal blessings of the avalanche-buried warriors.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said that the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions substantiated Kashmiris’ views on draconian laws in vogue in the state for over 2 decades. He said  “ India should have  abolished these harsh and inhuman laws since, but now India must heed to the UN expert’s advice urging it “to repeal a law that gives its military sweeping powers to act in troubled areas like Himalayan Kashmir region and parts of the insurgency wracked northeast.” Read more…
