    Wakhan corridor was created to separate the Russian Empire form the British Indian Empire towards the end of the Great Game. It is part of Afghanistan. It was not created by China to keep India away.

    While assimilating Gilgit and Baltistan is of utmost importance to India's strategic security and future energy security, we probably are better off letting Pakistanis keep the Mirpuris. Mirpuris are more Punjabis than Kashmiris and are only of nuisance value to the country they reside in.


    To add on to pmaitra's points above, Wakhan corridor is the gateway for Afghanistan into China and probably part of the ancient Silk route. To call this as useless would be equivalent to the Nehruvian blunder of considering a part of J&K as useless. And we think Nehru was myopic!

    Northern Areas is a Pakistani term. We call these areas as Gilgit and Baltistan!

    There were many false narratives propagated in India and real issues were covered up. If a Kashmiri is beaten in some part of India, whole Indian media covers it for weeks but even today, you can not ring a bell in Kashmir in temple nor do a procession to celebrate ram Navami. Nobody will cover this because it is politically incorrect to talk about temple and human rights of Hindus. Same way to be politically correct, you should always talk innocent Kashmirs and rights of Kashmiris etc. It will be politically incorrect to talk about the POK. I

    Ya sirji but none of our media is even little bit interested in finding news let alone making documentaries on Gilgit Baltistan.
    It's like invisible wall. NO documentary by any india media house.
    I really want my himalayan to roll down in Gilgit Baltistan areas one day freely.
