As Prime Minister Modi landed in the Houston ahead of his state visit, several representatives of Sindhis, Baloch and Pashto groups gathered in Houston to seek the help of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump to gain freedom from Pakistan.
Baloch, Sindhi, Pashto, who are the minority groups in the terrorist state of Pakistan have been suffering decades of persecution at the hands of Pakistani military establishment for seeking greater autonomy and now, are seeking help from PM Modi and President Donald Trump.
Reportedly, the representatives of these minority groups will hold a demonstration in front of the NRG Stadium on Sunday, where the much-awaited ‘Howdy, Modi’ event will be held. In a first-of-its-kind demonstration, the Sindhis, Balochs and Pashto groups will collectively urge the leaders of India and the United States to help them get freedom from Pakistan.
On Saturday, the members of these minority groups alleged that the Pakistani establishment was carrying out the gross violation of human rights against their communities.
“We demand freedom from Pakistan. India and the US should help us in the same way as India had helped the people of Bangladesh in 1971,” Nabi Baksha Baloch, the US representative of the Baloch National Movement.
He added that they came to Houston to request Prime Minister Modi and President Trump to support their cause. “There has been a gross violation of human rights against the Baloch people by the Pakistani government,” he said.
Reportedly, more than 100 Sindhi Americans arrived in Houston on Saturday and are planning to gather outside the NRG stadium, where the “Howdy Modi” event is scheduled to be held on Sunday, with the hope that their posters and banners of freedom will catch the attention of Modi and Trump.
“This is a historic rally by the leaders of the free world — the largest and oldest democracies. We the people of Sindh want freedom from Pakistan. Just like India supported for the freedom of Bangladesh in 1971, we want a separate nation for the people of Sindh. Pakistan is a theocratic country,” Zafar Sahito, from the Jeay Sindh Mutahida Muhaz, said.
