Pakistani protesters in NY demand strong action against Altaf Hussain
NEW YORK (APP): A number of Pakistani-Americans -- many of them originally from Karachi -- Friday staged a demonstration in front of the British Consulate in New York demanding a decisive action against Altaf Hussain that would put an end to his anti-Pakistan activities from his base in London.
The demonstrators carried Pakistan's national flags, with some of them wrapped up in the green-crescent-and-star.
Speakers at the event drew British government's attention to Altaf Hussain's criminal activities and asked it not to allow terrorists and money launderers to operate on its territory to disturb peace in Pakistan's largest city. They particularly voiced their outrage against the disgraced leader for chanting anti-Pakistan slogans.
A number of Pakistani and Kashmiri organizations, including the Pakistan-USA Freedom Forum (PUFF), organized the demonstration. Among them were PUFF's Comrade Shahid, Dr. Mouhammad Shafiq and Sardar Sawar Khan, a former member of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Council.
