China and Pakistan destroying the Buddhist past of occupied Gilgit-Baltistan View Site

Pakistan has been accused by the local Muslim population of Gilgit Baltistan of destroying the Buddhist relics found in abundance in the occupied region. Gilgit and Baltistan were predominantly Buddhist till foreign invaders came to teh region in 15th century and converted the people. During 1947  Indo-Pak war over Kashmir, Pakistan was able to annex Gilgit-Baltistan region from India. 

Now Pakistan is allowing China to build a dam in the region that would devastate the Buddhist past of the region.
