British Viceroy Lord Curson said about Gilgit, “Gilgit is one of the northern gates of India, through which a would-be invader must advance if he advances at all.” It was for the British Government and of course, it is in Pakistan now, strategically a very important region because of its unique geographical position, bordering with Afghanistan, China, India, and Russia.
