Watch: Sindhi Congress & PoK activist expose Pakistan brutality at UNHRC

Pakistan’s brutality in territories it has occupied has been exposed at the United Nations Human Rights Council. World Sindhi Congress Secretary General, Lakhu Luhano highlighted the issues of enforced disappearances and extra judicially killings of Sindhi people by Pakistan. ‘The Pakistani agencies are using enforced disappearances as a tool to spread terror to ruthlessly silence their voice. Sindhi people have been raising voice through hundreds of rallies, hunger strikes, protests and petitions but sadly judicial system of Pakistan provided no remedy,’ Luhano said. Luhano requested the council to fulfil its responsibility to save Sindhi people from enforced disappearances by Pakistan state agencies. The Pakistan’s brutal strategies were also exposed by PoK activist Mohd Sajjad Raja. He said that Pakistan has taken away all civil, political and constitutional rights of people in PoK. He said that they are treated like traitors in their own homeland and said that Pakistan has been brainwashing youth on both sides of the border. He also called on the UN body to act against Pakistan’s brutalities. Watch the full video for all the details.
