The Pakistani community in the United States has highlighted the alleged human rights violations being carried out by Indian security forces in Indian-occupied Kashmir by sponsoring a screen advertisement at the iconic Times Squares in New York.
According to reports circulating on the social media, the Pakistanis have also camped outside the United Nations Headquarters to raise their voice against Indian aggression in the occupied valley.
The advertisement was part on a public outreach campaign on indian-administered Kashmir.
The protesters camped out in front of the United Nations are expected to raise their voice against the alleged Indian atrocities when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses the UN later this week.
Last week, a group of activists also protested outside the “Howdy Modi” event in Houston.
Yesterday the official Twitter account of the Pakistan government also tweeted out a picture of Times Square lit up with signs in support of the people of Indian-administered Kashmir, highlighting lines such as “Stand with Kashmir” and “Free Kashmir”.
“The voice of people of Indian-occupied Kashmir is once again being heard in the highest diplomatic forums. ‘Stand With Kashmir’ has been highlighted on Times Square today,” the official Twitter handle of the Pakistan government said.
