Human Rights Activists from Balochistan, Sindh, Pashtunistan, Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK), Gilgit-Baltistan and Bangladesh will organize a car rally at Pakistan Embassy in Washington DC on August 14 to protest the inhuman atrocities by Pakistani regime. This rally will have trucks with giant screens wherein photographs and videos of the savagery and brutalities committed by Pakistani security forces will be broadcast to enable the world to see the actual ground realities in Pakistan.
The Baloch National Movement (BNM), Jeay Sindh Freedom Movement (JSFM), Pashtun Tahafuz Movement US Chapter (PTM- USA), Kashmiri, Gilgit Baltistan and Bangladesh human rights activists have joined hands for this car rally and protest at the Pakistan Embassy in Washington DC.
“We have chosen August 14 as the day for our car rally because the Pakistani regime celebrates this day as Yaum-e-Azadi, but we want the world to see for themselves the brutal atrocities committed by Pakistani soldiers on occupied Balochistan and other regions under their forceful occupation,” said Nabi Baksh Baloch, member foreign committee BNM.
“Since it’s creation on August 14, 1947 Pakistan has become a headache for the neighboring countries, region and the whole world because ISI started nurseries of radical Islamist elements. By sheltering international terrorist groups/ organizations and sending them across the world to terrorize innocent people, Pakistan has become the state sponsors of terrorism,” said Zafar Sahito, founder and central chief organizer Jeay Sindh Freedom Movement ( JSFM).
Except the Punjab province of Pakistan all other regions continue to be forcefully occupied by Pakistani regime. Balochistan, Sindh, Pashtunistan, parts of Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan have been kept under illegal Pakistani occupation through the barrel of a gun. Even East Pakistan that attained its independence in 1971 (now, Bangladesh) has seen overt interference in its domestic affairs by the Pakistan Army and ISI. It is for this reason that Bangladeshi human rights activists have also joined hands for the August 14 car rally in Washington DC.
“August 14 is a Black Day for all historical nations. Sindhi, Baloch, Pashtun and Kashmir/ Gilgit Baltistan are enchained in the slavery of Pakistan. Our car rally is being organized by oppressed nations of the region to protest Pakistan’s use of terrorism as an instrument of statecraft and aggression,” explained Zafar Sahito.
