Washington, United States, November 27 : Indian Americans, as well as other South Asian nations, staged demonstrations around the US, including outside the Pakistan embassy in Washington, calling on the world powers to bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks to justice.In 2008, ten Pakistan-sponsored Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists (LeT) carried out 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks, killing at least 166 people and wounding 300 others.Two terrorists took over Nariman House, a Chabad Lubavitch Jewish center in Mumbai, and ten others were held hostage, and protests took place outside the Pakistan Consulate in Houston, Chicago, and the Pakistan Community Center in New Jersey.More than a dozen people gathered to express their displeasure with Pakistan's political and nationalist ideology.The demonstrator, Mohinder Gulati, urged the international community to stand up to Pakistan.2611 is a sad reminder to the international community to make a decision.Will it take steps against the terrorists and their associates to re-establish the trust of people in its moral compass, or will it continue to operate as a cynical sport of burying a looming global threat to our future generations, Gulati said.These two days will be remembered for the brutality and cruelty of a violent sect, as well as for the sacrifice and zeal of heroes.Gulati, in particular, said that India has requested Pakistan to take steps against the terrorist organisations operating on its territory. Khalida Nawabi, an Afghan woman protester, stood with them in solidarity with their Indian counterparts.Pakistan has played a vital role in a string of terrorist attacks aimed at India and Afghanistan.Pakistan has extended its support to many terrorist organizations; currently, there are 35 active groups that have the full assistance of the Pakistani intelligence department.The international community must condemn this tyrant state that created the Taliban and invaded Afghanistan.Khalida Nawabi said earlier today that the Indian American group also displayed digital vans carrying pictures from the 2611 attack, including photos of the iconic Taj Hotel in Mumbai that was attacked by terrorists from Pakistan-based LeT. Uniyal praised Pakistan for creating safe havens for terrorists, saying it is a world in which terrorists can plan, raise funds, communicate, recruit, train, transit, and operate in relative safety.She said that the world has many pressing problems to tackle, such as the economic crisis, the health crisis, hunger, and malnutrition.A few demonstrators were seen holding a banner that read: Wounds heal, but the scars don't fade.On November 26, the demonstration outside the Pakistan Consulate in New York started around 12 noon (local time) and lasted for two hours. Protesters shouted slogans such as Pakistan-Terrorist State, We want Justice, Pakistan a failed nation, removal from the FATF Grey List a blunder, etc.Protesters also chastised China for misuse of its veto power to thwart UN Resolutions at the behest of Pakistan to shield terrorists.LED vans were seen at many prominent locations, displaying clips and photos of the victims of the 2611 attacks, highlighting Pakistan's role in supporting terror organizations.
