In yet another embarrassment for Pakistan in the United States, trucks and taxis were spotted on the streets of New York on Friday, exposing Pakistan over the atrocities against minorities in the country. From yellow taxis to mini trucks, vehicles carried advertisements protesting against the atrocities minorities are facing in Pakistan. This development came ahead of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's address to the 74th session of United Nations General Assembly(UNGA) in New York on Friday.
Speaking against the brutalities against the minorities, Sindh activist Asad Chandio said that Sindh province in Pakistan is in danger, calling for independence from Pakistan. He appealed the international community to help in the freedom of Sindh for the benefit of Sindhis. Adding that Sindhis have been abandoned in the country. He further alleged that if Sindh falls down, then the world will suffer Pakistan's "Talbanisation".
"It's my appeal to the world to help in Sindh's freedom, which will be beneficial for Sindhis. They have been abandoned in the name of the community. They have been abandoned due to its culture and heritage. It will benefit the whole world if Sindh attains freedom. If Sindh perishes, the world will have to become victim of Pakistan's Talibanisation," the Sindh activist said.
Earlier ahead of PM Modi's 'Howdy Modi' event in Houston, another Sindh activist, Zafar Sahito of the Jeay Sindh Mutahida Muhaz spoke to Republic TV, detailing the atrocities faced by Sindhis in the area. He called for the demand of 'Sindhudesh', saying that the community wishes to retain its identity. He also asked for Balochistan's freedom from Pakistani harassment.
"We request 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 said.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan is going to address the UNGA, after PM Modi's speech. PM Modi is scheduled to speak at the 74th UNGA on September 27 at 10:00 am (7:30 pm IST).
