Durban: Several mobile banners rolled out to protest against human rights abuses in Pakistan
Durban: Ahead of the 12th anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack, several mobile banners have been rolled out in Durban city of South Africa to protest against human rights abuses in Pakistan.
One of the posters read: "#Free Balochistan from Human Rights Abuses by Pakistan."
"Save Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Other Religious Minorities in Pakistan,” read another poster.
Attacks and atrocities against minorities have become regular events in Pakistan.
The 2008 Mumbai attacks were twelve coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai by members of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
Ajmal Kasab, the only attacker who was captured alive, later confessed upon interrogation that the attacks were conducted with the support of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). Kasab was hanged on Nov 21, 2012 at Yerwada Jail in Pune.
The attacks, which drew widespread global condemnation, began on Wednesday, Nov 26, 2008 and lasted until Saturday, Nov 29, 2008, killing 166 people and wounding at least 308.
