Washington,[US], July 23 (ANi): The peaceful protest by various minorities of Pakistan against Imran Khan's visit to the US was disrupted by the Pakistan prime minister's supporters outside the White House as they broke into a verbal clash with the protestors.
As a result, the U.S. Secret Service intervened and pacified the crowd.
Ahead of the meet between President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday morning, activists and protestors representing various minorities of Pakistan went above and beyond to show Khan that he was not welcome in the U.S.
Anti-Khan Demonstrations began hours before the Trump-Khan meet on a Monday morning.
The protest named as 'Strength in Unity' saw representatives from the Muhajir, Sindhi, Pashtun, Gilgit and Sariki groups from Balochistan, Gilgit and Karachi.
The protestors carried out a peaceful demonstration and raised slogans seeking justice for minorities of Pakistan. However, despite repeated police warnings Imran khan supporters kept provoking the protestors that further resulted in a series of verbal altercations between the two groups.
Baloch and Muhajir groups also carried out a mobile billboard campaign in Washington DC to seek President Donald Trump's help in ending enforced disappearances in Pakistan and other atrocities against minorities in Pakistan. The campaign was planned around urging President Trump to help ensure an end to human rights abuses and to not provide any financial aid to Pakistan.
