New York: Indian Prime Minister Modi participated in the International Day of Yoga in United Nations, Sikhs, Pakistanis, and Kashmiri communities living in the United States staged a protest demonstration in New York, condemning the grave human rights violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).
The protesters blamed that there are serious violations of human rights and restrictions on freedom of expression, as the Modi government has made the lives of Sikhs, Muslims and other minorities miserable through extremist organizations in IOK.
The participants of the protest demonstration in front of the United Nations headquarters continued to raise loud slogans against the Indian government and Narendra Modi. According to the protesters, the Modi government has made India a country of only Hindus under the Hindutva ideology, so the Sikhs want independence from India and demand a separate country, Khalistan. Demonstrators carried the flags of the Khalistan movement.
On this occasion, a Kashmiri leader who attended the the protest said that Modi is violating human rights in India. Atrocities are being rampant in India. Genocide of minorities must stop. Kashmiris should be given the right to vote according to the resolutions of the United Nations.
The protesters said: “Tomorrow we will also hold demonstrate in Washington against the ongoing atrocities in India. The United Nations has failed to give Kashmiris their right to self-determination since 1947.
Another leader who participated in the protest said that Muslims are being massacred in India. So far millions of Kashmiris have been martyred. The voice of minorities in India cannot be suppressed at any cost.
When the Indian Prime Minister was addressing a yoga ceremony under the cover of the United Nations, videos on the screens installed on the trucks highlighted Indian atrocities on the streets of New York.
