Sindhis in Washington demands US to impose sanctions on Pakistan

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 17 Aug 2021, 09:22 pm

Washington: Sindhis in Washington gathered on Aug 14 and demanded the USA to impose sanctions on Pakistan for the country's treatment towards the community.

Aug 14 marked the Independence Day of Pakistan.

To reclaim the day as an opportunity to take action and raise awareness for the silenced plight of Sindhis in Pakistan, which include state-sponsored murder and abductions, Sindhis and supporters gathered for a vehicular rally across the capital city of the United States, EIN Newsdesk reports.

“The Pakistani government and its military steals land, abducts civilians, bombs innocent children, and tortures prisoners. They suppress media reporting and journalism,” Surya Naga, a human rights activist, was quoted as saying by the news portal.

“We envision a world where Sindhis are free to return to their homes and explore their careers and revive their folk art, without children having to fear humiliation by an army seeking to expel them from their own land. A Sindh where Sindhis can live.”

Munawar “Sufi” Laghari ended the rally with closing remarks, saying “We want free Sindh, justice and peace. US and UN must support the Sindhis. That is why we are here.”
