Gilgit, in the words of Lord Curzon, the then British Viceroy of India, “is one of the northern gates of India, through which a would-be invader must advance, if he advances at all.” On account of its unique geographical position, it occupied a place of great strategic importance for the then British Government of India. Even today, Gilgit is a meeting ground of many close neighbours like Afghanistan, China, India, Pakistan and Russia.
