Karakorum – the region of insurgencies

From K. N. Pandita of the Kashmir Herald (India)

This reminds one of the demographic changes affected by General Musharraf in Gilgit and Baltistan during 1980s when he was the Corps Commander of Northern Areas. The Shia population of Gilgit and Baltistan was reduced to minority level by settling Sunni Wahhabi tribesman from other parts of NWFP in the area.
