MIRPUR (AJK) - The Mirpur District Bar Association has taken the reports, with grave concern, about the alleged under-hand move to materialise the formal annexation of the areas of Gilgit/Baltistan to Pakistan through getting a resolution of accession passed by the G/B Legislative Assembly.

Addressing  a meeting of the sitting and former DBA office bearers here the other day, speakers including MDBA President Arshad Mahmood Mallick, General Secretary Syed Fizan Haider, Senior Vice President Abdul Wahid Amer, Vice Presidents including Hafiz Fazalur Rehman Dar and Majeed Farhet, Joint Sectary Amer Iqbal and Finance Secretary Haleem Azam warned the government of Pakistan to desist from taking any decision to this effect in haste - in view of the sensitivity and the historic status of the Gilgit/Baltistan as the historic and inalienable parts of the internationally-acknowledged disputed Himalayan State of Jammu & Kashmir, said a press release issued by the DBA here.

"Any decision to this effect on the part of the government of Pakistan will be tantamount to stabbing the Kashmir freedom movement", speakers observed.

The lawyers leaders categorically observed that Gilgit Baltistan had a legislative assembly, under the specified circumstances, but not the constitutional assembly. "Any Endeavour to get the resolution of accession of GB-Pakistan would amount to bury the Kashmir issue forever", they feared.

The legal fraternity's elders said that it would be betrayal from the justice principled, historic, moral and political stance over Kashmir issue by the government of Pakistan which she (the government) had been keeping firmly since the very emergence of the dispute.

The DBA leaders pointed out that the Jammu & Kashmir dispute was available in the list of the global issues, legally, morally and constitutionally on the agenda of the UNO, which (issues) were yet to be resolved.

The DBA officials maintained that Gilgit/Baltistan were the major part of Jammu & Kashmir State - where (GB) plebiscite is also to be held under the legitimate UN resolutions on Kashmir.
