Slamming Islamabad's human rights violations in Pakistan occupied Kashmir(POK), European Parliament's rapporteur Baroness Emma Nicholson said PoK was actually in "chains" and Gilgit and Baltistan were actually "black hole" in today's world.

Nicholson, whose report "Kashmir: Present situation and Future Prospects" was passed by European Parliament with an overwhelming majority said, "Very few people have seen the interim constitution of PoK which clearly show that it is not free at all. It is in chains."

She said the worst sufferers were the poor people of Gilgit and Baltistan and equated the situation of that region similar to the "black hole," a region that is cut off from the rest of universe.

The rapporteur said her report on Kashmir, which was not well received by the officials in Pakistan, had been welcomed in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir.

"I am receiving so many messages from people from that region (PoK), thanking me for bringing out the report about human rights and fundamental rights of people in this region and in Gilgit and Baltistan."
