Baloch, Sindhis and Afghan community living in the United States held a peaceful protest and a car rally against Pakistan’s human rights violations against them

Members of the Baloch, Sindhis and Afghan community living in the United States along with several Bangladeshi migrants and Gilgit Baltistan held a peaceful protest and a car rally against Pakistan’s human rights violations against them. “All oppressed communities from Pakistan are protesting against the human rights violations against Pakistan. We demand the international community and the United States to impose sanctions against Pakistan,” Nabi Baksha Baloch from the Baloch National Movement, US, told PTI during the protest held on Saturday.

The protest in front of the Embassy of Pakistan, where they reached in a car rally, was organized by the “Expose-Pakistan Campaign Committee”, of which Baloch National Movement is part of along with Pashtun Tahafuz Movement – the USA, Jiye Sindh Freedom Movement, Human Rights Congress for Bangladeshi Minorities and Kashmir/Gilgit-Baltistan.

“August 14 is not a day of Azadi (freedom) but the day Pakistan forcefully occupied Balochistan and Gilgit-Baltistan. It is the day when cultural genocide and ethnic engineering started in Sindh. It is the day when Islamic terrorism was imposed on Pashtuns and Afghans to destroy their cultural identity,” the organizers said in a statement.

“It is the day when Hindu citizens lost their right to religious freedom and life,” it said, adding that the protest is organized by the direct victims of Pakistan’s brutal domestic and foreign policy.

Participants said that Pakistan is openly funding the Taliban which is on the list of UN-banned terrorist groups.

“This is a clear violation of UN Charter and the international community should place a ban on the sales of weapons and military hardware to Islamabad. Moreover, we demand that FATF should move Pakistan to the Blacklist,” they demanded.

Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is a Paris-based body to combat money laundering terror financing.

“Further, the USA and its allies should impose trade and commerce restrictions on China, Iran, and Pakistan for supporting terrorism and genocide. The United Nations should remove Pakistan and Iran from the Human Rights Council,” they said.
