  1. this is great contribution to awake the sleeping minds of the Government officials to take a step fot the betterment of the area

  2. This is also a great effort to awake the sleeping people of Shishkat….where they are? I never saw a person leading or mobilising people.

  3. All,

    I thanks all of you participated in the activity. You are actually our leaders and i have question where the our leader. is they all are sleeping at there home. we happy with our additional seat but no result come for us. specially our wining candidate who had given vote from gojal now he is enjoying there seat in GBLA. But now a good action come to re-solve the issue. in his speech i saw in PT he words are its not issue that only 16 people are died and in Kashmir thousand of people died in EQ. My understanding is that if one people have same value as of many. the main issue is that the people suffering from the lake due to disaster. i again thanks the Gojal committee for their uncountable work.

  4. @ Kiramat i think it is the common issue of whole Gojal and even GB .It seems you dont know the people who are leading the coordination committe in Gilgit. You better read the news carefully.And its the time to awake the sleeping govt not to personalize things and criticise people village wise.

    1. @Mussarat

      Kiramat is right in saying so…. Nobody from Shishket is heading the team in Gilgit… they should come forward and put their political gruadges a side

      1. i don’t understand why you people creating discrimination among community.the whole community of Gojal a struggling day and night to resolve the current situation in shishkat and ayeenaabad.open your minds and try to motivate people despite criticizing ppl. this is not issue of a single village.the 25,000 Population of Gojal are facing different kind of issue.for kind information of you both karamat and karim please read the news with opend eyes you will find Mr. S u Baig.Ghulam Mustafa,Ghulam Uddin, Khusamadin ,Jala Shah and many more contributing their time and resources to resolve this issue.I urge ppl to join hands instead of waiting time on baseless issues and contribute your efforts within your limitations.

  5. Nice move!
    More and more voices should be raised through both political and community forums so as to keep pressure at the state machinery in order to expedite the proccess of rehabilitation of the affectees as well as normalizing the every day life of the Gojal valley through openning of the KKH by releasing the water of the lake.

  6. A campaign should have put in place befor staging such protest to attract the pritnt and electronic media. The involvment of media and civil society would help to raise voice laudly. All other political parties and people from other regions should also join hands with the people of Hunza Gojal in this difficult time.

  7. Respectable convener & the team, thanks for this constructive initiative. The same appreciation must go to the team in Islamabad who also joined their hands in sharing their feelings with authorities. Hope your effort will make a positive difference in near and far future, Insha Ullah.

  8. It is very shamefull for the Govt of GB that a mounth is gonna over till now there is not any action. The leader just had a photo session but didn’t had any work to remove the debris. They didn’t stake with their words.
    Good initiation by the Gilgit wing Gojalis for raising their voices.

    1. ya up i agree with u. over leader are sluggish..obviously the way over govt reponding it is amazing i dont know y they are relucant regards link of gojal to hunza.

  9. This is the time to lead; good job everybody, especially leading in Gilgit. The whole Hunza must come together to join hands. Please do not miss the opportunity to show your solidarity. To “sound our voice” on media is further required, as PT is doing. Let’s join this campaign and move the movement ahead. My tribute to all who are part of this movement.

    “Long live Hunza Gojal”

  12. Good effort keep it moving on, the same need here in Islamabad otherwise no one will give consentration on our problems. wake Gojalis….. your nation is in trouble

  13. Through some media reports I came to know that Federal Government is planning to construct dam at Attaabad. And we don’t know the stance of our representatives on this issue. If this is true and the representatives are supporting this idea of Federal Government. So, we can imagine this is the reward we get by electing both of them from Hunza and especially from Gojal. They want to sink Gojal forever? Wazir Baig’s stance on this matter is questionable for all of us (Gojalis). Please, reps condom this plan and suggest them to construct dams at Kalabagh and Diamir. We fully condemn this proposal.

  14. A great effort from the Leaders / natives of Gojal, God Bless You people and may Help us to come out of this hard time with dignity. Yesterday i was going through a news report, where our Rep (Wazir Baig , Speaker) has an idea of converting this lake into a Dam. i Think he has forget the people of Gojal who lead him in GBLA. We cannot afford any Dam at Our soul by sacrificing our beautiful villages. We totally Condem all such suggestions by govt. authorities. I think we have waited alot to our political leadership to come up with a solution. Hope we would be able to record our protest very soon in the capital city very soon. Thanks once again to the leaders/natives of Gojal in Gilgit.
