Pakistan Army's Role in Azad Kashmir


Uploaded on July 12, 2010 by SouthAsiaNews

Muzzafarabad, July 12: Azad Kashmir’s future is as dark and gloomy today as it was in 1947. Pakistan’s army and its intelligence agencies rule `Azad Kashmir’ and control its major establishments. During the 2005 Kashmir Earthquake, in which over 75,000 people were killed, 5 billion dollars in aid arrived from all around the world. For reconstruction and development, the Government of Pakistan formed Earthquake Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Authority (ERRA). But ultimately it became yet another forum to accommodate retired senior military officers. Over the years the authority has been criticized for non-developmental spending on luxury goods and its fake statistics. ERRA claims to have spent 2 billion dollars in earthquake hit areas, but people ask where has the money gone as nothing has been built so far.
