Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is on a visit to the US, on Sunday faced protests as he addressed a meet at Capital One Arena in Washington. As to news agency ANI, Imran’s speech was disrupted by activists from Balochistan, who raised anti-Pakistan slogans as the Pakistan Prime Minister spoke.
A video showing three Baloch activists raising slogans in the middle of Imran Khan’s speech was shared on microblogging site Twitter by ANI.
According to Imran, it was in a ‘Naya Pakistan’ that the politicians were being questioned and held accountable. “These people had never been asked for answers before”.
He said the community was extremely excited over the activity as the summit-level engagement was being held after a hiatus of five years.
Qureshi said that during his journey to the US, the prime minister would take a signal from a dignified Pakistan and call for more trade rather than seeking help.
Imran is coming for Pakistan to present the case, Qureshi said.
According to the Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances, an entity established by the Pakistani government, about 5,000 cases of enforced disappearances have been registered since 2014. Most of them are still unresolved.
