From calling Pakistan a thief in Gilgit-Baltistan to saying that Pakistan is helping Taliban in killing US soldiers, Senge Hasnan Sering, Director of the Gilgit-Baltistan National Congress whipped Mushahid Hussain Syed, the senator on a Pakistan Muslim League platform. In a video, which is doing rounds on Twitter, Sering accuses Pakistan of taking money from the US and giving it to Taliban for killing the US soldiers. He even discusses Kashmir in the video. Sering says, “I am from Gilgit-Baltistan, I see you as a proxy of Pakistani Military and not representing Kashmir. Pakistan is not good for any country and it has done no good to the United States. It is not good for the people of Kashmir. You occupy one-third of Kashmir and an occupier cannot be a friend of Kashmir on the other side. You have been exploiting resources in Gilgit-Baltistan.” Here’s the full text of what he said:
You talked about US failures in Pakistan and repeatedly said that Pakistan has done much better than the US. Maybe, one of the reasons is that Pakistan is helping the Taliban which is killing the US soldiers. Next time, since you are on the defence committee, maybe you want to sit with the mothers and wives who have lost their sons and husbands’ and explain to them that why you take money from the US and then give to Taliban to kill the US soldiers.
Now coming to Kashmir since I am from Gilgit-Baltistan, I see you as a proxy of Pakistani Military and not representing Kashmir. Pakistan has proxies in Jammu and Kashmir. They have weapons and explosives. You come here as a proxy with sweet talk. Everytime the money dries up, you show up here with blackmail, Russia talk, China talk, Iran. I request the US to get out of this vicious cycle. Pakistan is not good for any country and it has done no good to the United States. It is not good for the people of Kashmir. You occupy one-third of Kashmir and an occupier cannot be a friend of Kashmir on the other side. You have been exploiting resources in Gilgit-Baltistan.
Without paying royalty or compensation, a single penny for the last 70 years, I call you a thief in Gilgit-Baltistan. And a thief in Gilgit-Baltistan cannot be a friend in Jammu and Kashmir.

The only thing that is good is that Pakistani Army wants to maintain a status quo because that is a money making machine. UN resolution wants you to withdraw, that’s the first prerequisite. It’s a one-page document. The first prerequisite is, you get out of Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Kashmir and then the people of Kashmir, United Nation and the Indian Government will sit down to form a mechanism to hold the plebiscite and this double talk that you have been doing in Afghanistan, Kashmir and US, it needs to be exposed and I tell you wherever you go, there would be someone from Gilgit-Baltistan exposing Pakistan.
