Several Pakistani people protested outside the Pakistan Consulate in New York, United States of America on the International Day of Victims of Enforced Disappearances.

The protest was conducted against the Imran Khan government to throw light on the atrocities committed on the minority communities of Pakistan. The demonstrators raised their voice against the forceful abductions of the suppressed groups by the Asian country’s army and intelligence.

Many political workers, journalists and activists have disappeared under the nose of the security forces in the Islamic nation. With their abduction, their families remain clueless as the government refuses to disclose the whereabouts of those detained. Balochistan is one of the most controversial areas in Pakistan, with its population subjected to killings for decades together. The region has incessantly demanded for its separation from the republic.

The United Nations observes the International Day of Victims of Enforced Disappearances every year on August 30 to raise the awareness that enforced disappearance is a crime and a wrong tool to deal with situations of conflict. Many survivors openly share their stories with the public on this day.
