The local residents confirm that the region is being used as a staging post for Pakistan’s proxy war against India. They further say that they have no sympathy for the terror groups and perhaps hated more in PoK than anywhere else.

According to ANI, “PoK leaders like Arif Shahid exposed the ISI terror nexus in the region and paid for it with their lives. Shahid has been found on record saying that the poor people of Pakistan are being exploited by the ISI to wage a Jihad against India in which only the Pakistan Army is interested.”

“Shahid fought tooth and nail against Pakistan’s oppression in PoK before he was shot outside his residence in Rawalpindi on May 14, 2013. He was 62. The investigation into Shahid’s murder is still inconclusive, and there is no closure to the cold-blooded murder, so far. The ISI is blamed for conspiring and executing Shahid’s murder.”
The local residents of PoK have been demanding the removal of these terror camps for years but the state has always turned a deaf ear.

Upon completion, they will be assigned their missions ranging from research at the International Space Station, launching from American soil on spacecraft by private companies, to flying on deep space missions on NASA’s Orion Spacecraft.

The US Vice-President Mike Pence visited the Johnson Space Centre in Houston to announce and congratulate the new batch. Pence also said that President Trump is “fully committed” to NASA’s missions in space.
