Kashmiri diaspora protests in Los Angles

Los Angles, Feb 28, : Kashmiri diaspora and other communities living in Los Angeles came together to protest ‘atrocities’ against Kashmiris and minorities in India.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

“A peaceful protest rally was organized on Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles. Participants used their first amendment right of US Constitution which allows them freedom of speech to express their views and opinions,” an official press release said.

“Hundreds of people including – Kashmiris, Sikhs, Americans and Pakistani-Americans staged a demonstration against the atrocities being meted out to the minorities in India and against Human Rights violations in Kashmir,” the statement said.

The community in a press release said that during the rally, protesters were seen carrying banners and posters that called out these atrocities. Some of which said – “India Stop Human Rights Violations In Kashmir” and “India Stop Atrocities against minorities”.

“The protesters were also seen carrying signs against the scrapping of Article 35-A. Several large size banners were seen hanging on the sidewalk that showed gross human rights violations in Kashmir,” the press release said.

The community in a press release said that during the rally, “Hum Kya Chahtey Azadi”, “Kashmir Zindabad” and “Khalistan Zindabad” slogans echoed the streets of Santa Monica Boulevard.

“The participants distributed several articles and shared statistics to highlight the continued atrocities against minorities in India, including the recent incident of harassment and intimidation against Kashmiri students, businessmen and travelers, outside of Kashmir,” the community in a press release said.
