New York: People protest outside Pakistan Consulate over forceful abductions

| @indiablooms | 02 Sep 2020, 12:30 pm

New York: A large number of people on Sunday gathered outside the Pakistan consulate in New York to demonstrate against the forceful abductions of people from the minority communities in Pakistan by its Army and Intelligence wing. 

The demonstration took place on the International Day of Victims of Enforced Disappearances.

"Today, we are here to protest against all those disappearances which the Pakistani army has enforced and the Pakistani intelligence has been carrying out for a long time. There are thousands of people including politicians, political workers and journalists who have been forcefully disappeared," Najeeb Khan, a Pashtun who lives in Balochistan, told ANI.

"We are here at the Pakistan consulate to raise our voice. We want the world to know that Pakistan has become a huge prison for minority religions today," he added during the protest on Sunday.
