NEW YORK (92 News) - Thousands of Pakistanis, Kashmiris and Sikhs gathered outside the United Nations (UN) headquarters in New York on Friday to protest against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his anti-Kashmiri policies.

More than 20,000 people coming from US, UK, Canada and Pakistan assembled to raise anti-Modi slogans and expose the cruel face of Indian government in the occupied territory of Kashmir.

The protesters chanted slogans 'Modi terrorist' and Stop genocide in 'Kashmir'.

They said India is man-slaughtering Kashmirsi and minorities in Occupied Kashmir.

The protesters demanded India to stop oppression in Kashmir, lift curfew and empower Kashmirisi with their right to self-determination.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi also joined the protest and said Indians baffled after Pakistan properly highlighted Kashmir issue in the UNGA.

On the other hand, large billboards have been displayed at famous Times Square of Manhattan.
