Sindhis, Pashtun, Gilgit and Baloch members protest in US on Pakistan Independence Day

Washington: Several members of the oppressed communities in Pakistan demonstrated in front of the Pakistani embassy in Washington DC on Friday.

Pakistan celebrated its Independence Day on Aug 14.

The protesting members belonged to the Sindhis, Pashtun, Gilgit and Baloch communities.

Community members also demonstrated against Pakistan in Houston.

Members of these communities usually gather at Broken Chair in Geneva (the headquarters of United Nations Human Rights Council) to highlight their plight in Pakistan owing to an ethnic cleansing by the state and demand UN investigation into the human rights violations like forced disappearances, killings and sexual violence on women.
