World Sindhi Congress (WSC) held a large protest in front of the UNHRC in Geneva on 22nd September 2022. The protest was joined by the exile leaders of Balochistan and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and human rights defenders from various countries of Europe.
The speakers reiterated that Pakistan continues to commit heinous crimes against Sindhi, Baloch, Kashmiri and Pashtun people through enforced disappearances, extrajudicial killings, persecution of religious minorities, loot and occupation of their resources.
WSC representatives said Sindh is witnessing the worst devastation in its thousands of years of history, impacting more than 20 million people, and making more than 10 million homeless. While Pakistan is spreading this narrative that it is caused by climate change, the evidence clearly suggests it was preventable, the continuing mismanagement of the water resources and ways and systematic criminal acts in the current catastrophe have resulted in this huge human tragedy. Pakistan is trying to use our tragedy to extort money from the world and eliminate us. The Pakistani government is completely out of providing meaningful help to millions of Sindhi people.
In the end, a memorandum was presented to the UN Secretary-General requesting the UN and the International Community to set up a committee to investigate the floods and how to stop the genocide of Sindhi people using floods and support their relief and rehabilitation.
