Exposing Pakistan's atrocities against minorities, activists from Baloch National movement and Jeay Sindh Mutahida Muhaz, have spoken to Republic TV on Saturday at Houston, US. Nabi Baksh Baloch from the Baloch National movement has said that he plans to stand outside the NRG stadium where PM Modi is scheduled to address and request his intervention. He added that Pakistan does not care for Balochis and continues to do genocide of the community. Requesting both PM Modi and President Trump, he plans to ask them to 'Free Balochistan'.
"We have a request to the Prime Minister who has reached Houston. Our basic demand is to remove the hold of Pakistan on Balochistan, where human rights violation is being done. Cultural genocide, mass killings, and mass grabbing is occurring. We demand President Donald Trump and PM Modi to intervene. They are the world's top two leaders and we demand them to help us in the freedom of Balochistan. The CPEG project in Balochistan is a genocide project because Pakistan has never cared for Balochi people, only their land, property. Hence we are here and will be standing outside the venue with banners - Free Balochistan. We want free Balochistan from Pakistan," he said.
Talking about a similar atrocity faced by Sindhis in the area, Zafar Sahito of the Jeay Sindh Mutahida Muhaz spoke to Republic TV. He too shared the community's state requesting the two leaders intervention. Demanding for Sindhudesh, he said that they wished to retain their identity. He also asked for Balochistan's freedom from Pakistani harassment.
"We have come here with hope as we welcome PM Modi and President Trump. We will request him to free Sindh. Sindhudesh is our civilization. We wish to keep our identity. But in Pakistan, our community is facing genocide. Whether they are Sindhis, Hindus, Balochis, Christians all minorities - they (Pakistan) do not want them. So we want to request via international media - that we want freedom. They should help us to stop the genocide of all oppressed nationals," he added. According to PTI, more than 100 Sindhi Americans arrived in Houston on Saturday to protest at the NRG stadium demanding freedom.
On September 22, Prime Minister Narendra Modi embarked on a visit to the United States of America. In his six-day long visit, the Prime Minister is scheduled to address the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). Houston-based Texas India Forum will host a community summit in honour of PM Modi at the NRG Stadium on September 22. The NRG stadium is one of America's largest professional football stadiums and is home to the Houston Texans franchise. The Texas India Forum, a not-for-profit organisation, confirmed that they expect 50,000 people to attend the mega event billed as "Howdy, Modi!"
