People living in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) have shown resentment to Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI for having made their region a haven for anti-social elements. They say that terror training camps have been thriving in PoK for years. Residents of Muzaffarabad, Kotli, Chinari, Mirpur , Gilgit ,Diamer and various parts of the Neelum Valley say their lives have been made a living hell by the terror training camps as the lawless men, who train here, plunder local villages and molest the women of the area.
People and leaders in the region spoke about the daily extortion and harassment caused by the terror groups who are located near the Line of Control (LoC).”Banned organisations, terror camps are provided food & ration here, we condemn it,”: a local leader in Muzaffarabad, PoK said. “If management doesn’t end Taliban’s terror camps and ‘no-go’ areas in Diamer, Gilgit, Baseen & others, then we’ll take action,” a local person from Gilgit area said. Residents confirm that the region is being used as nothing more than a staging post for Pakistan’s proxy war against India. They say they have no sympathy for the terror groups who are perhaps hated more in PoK than anywhere else.

The people of PoK have been demanding the removal of terror camps for years but the state has always turned a deaf ear. Earlier, PoK witnessed a series of protests by residents against rigged polls that saw Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s party, the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), coming to power.
