Gilgit

Did India Just Strike Back or It’s Just a Glitchy Website?

A day after GB Hackers – an Anonymous hacker group from Gilgit-Baltistan, defaced the website of All India SC & ST Railway Employees Association, the official website of Gilgit-Batlistan’s tourism department has started showing some glitches. It is unknown whether the website is under some kind of attack or it’s just some bad code from the developer’s end.

Gilgit-Baltistan tourism department website

A day after GB Hackers – an Anonymous hacker group from Gilgit-Baltistan, defaced the website of All India SC & ST Railway Employees Association, the official website of Gilgit-Baltistan’s tourism department has started showing some glitches. It is unknown whether the website is under some kind of attack or it’s just some bad code from the developer’s end.

Seems like the website, which is officially responsible for taking care of travel and tourism related matters, itself needs to be taken care of.

Almost all pages on the website are facing this issue and error messages are shown all over the pages.

This is not the first time an official website of Gilgit-Baltistan government has gotten to its name a glitchy website. Many official websites, including the official website of Gilgit-Baltistan government, use outdated design and development practices hence exposing them to security attacks.

It appears from the credits link that the website was developed by a company called dzignet.

Kohistan Landslide
Kohistan Times

Nearly 400 passengers traveling between Gilgit and Rawalpindi have been stranded in Kohistan following a landslide that blocked Karakoram Highway (KKH). A landslide has blocked currently the only land access route between Gilgit and Rawalpindi near Sumar Nulla in Kohistan’s Dasu region. Passengers traveling on the route have been stranded for nearly 12 hours now.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police have made arrangements for the safety and security of the passengers in the harsh cold weather. Meanwhile, Kohistan district administration has asked for a bulldozer and other necessary machinery to open the route for traffic.

The district administration has said that the landslide area will be cleared for traffic before Tuesday evening so that the passengers on both sides could proceed to their destinations.

The stranded passengers include women and children as well. Luckily, there are small hotels and shops nearby that will offer some relief of basic necessities in the hard times.

The northern region of Pakistan is facing an on-going spell of heavy snowfall. Karakoram Highway is prone to landslides during rainfall and snowfall. Lack of even the most basic facilities put passengers in a very difficult position in such times.

The two other routes that connect Gilgit to Rawalpindi, i.e. Shandur Pass and Babusar Pass, remain closed during winters due to heavy snowfall.

Introducing #GBCProspers - Stories from Gilgit, Baltistan and Chitral

Every day when we wake up, we struggle hard to make a name for ourselves, our families and our country. We see a handful of names in the limelight while hundreds and thousands of names remain in an obscurity no matter how big or small that person’s contribution to the society is.

At GBee, we believe that a society cannot prosper without the small yet meaningful contributions of its members.

This is why, we are announcing the launch of an on-going campaign which we are now officially calling #GBCProspers. This campaign aims to celebrate the contributions, small and big, by the common citizens that collectively reflect in the social, cultural, religious, musical and economic prosperity of the mountain communities.

How to access the stories?

The stories published under #GBCProspers campaign can be found on a dedicated topic section. Each story will also be published in its relevant district page on Facebook and GBee’s Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Alternatively, you can search for the hashtag #GBCProspers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to get the latest as well as the stories published in the past.

How to submit a story?

Stories can be submitted at our email editor[at]gbee.pk with #GBCProspers in the subject, on our WhatsApp number +923555075849 or directly at your relevant district page on Facebook.
