ore than 100 trucks and taxies with similar slogans will drive down the 1st Avenue outside the United Nations Headquarters in New York, exposing Pakistan state atrocities.
Minorities from Pakistan have joined hands in New York and pooled in money to expose Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and Pakistan Army ahead of Khan’s address at the United Nations General Assembly on Friday.
“Pakistan is focusing on the wrong K. Pakistan is raising the Kashmir issue only to divert attention from Pakistan Army atrocities on its minorities from Mohajirs to Balochs, Pashtuns, Hindus and Christians,” Nadeem Nusrat, chairman voice of Karachi, told Mail Today in New York.
“We have documented facts about the condition of minorities in Pakistan. More than seven decades after the Independence, Mohajirs (Muslims who moved to Pakistan after Independence) have still not been integrated. Our youth have been abducted, tortured and killed by Pakistan ISI and Rangers as intimidation tactics,” said Wasay Jalil, former Mayor of Gulshan Iqbal in Karachi who was forced to flee Islamabad facing Pakistan Army atrocities.
There are hundreds of stories of Pakistan’s Punjabi Muslim majority ill-treating the minorities.
In 2018, Syed Ali Raza Abdi, a member of Pakistan National Assembly, was killed at the behest of the Pakistan Army. The Mohajirs are joined by the Baloch and Pashtuns activists at the UN.
“We have pictures and videos of Pakistan Army killing our people in cold blood. But neither activists are serious to raise the issue of minorities in Pakistan,” Wasay Jalil added.
The Pakistani minorities are reaching out to the US Congressmen and senators seeking their help to put pressure on Pakistan to stop ill-treating their minorities.
“The stories Pakistani minorities, especially the Baloch, Mohajir and Pashtuns narrate are gut-wrenching. We will take them to lawmakers and think tanks in the U.S. and tell them to ensure Pakistan does not ill-treat its minorities,” said Puneet Ahluwalia, executive director of South Asia Minority Alliance.
