Re: Will India react militarily if Pak cedes Gilgit Baltistan to China ^^ Yes, many people are not aware of the distinction between PoK and "Gilgit-Baltistan". Personally, I couldn't care less if the Pakis keep PoK. They have converted PoK into a Jihadi cesspool anyway - it is a snakepit of mad Mullahs out there. But Gilgit-Baltistan is something we really do need. It is our gateway to Central Asia. It is the most strategic piece of land that India can ever gain. PoK is more of a liability than any gain to us. In fact, I would want all these Azaadi-wallahs on the Indian side to cross over to PoK too.
