A senior Baloch lawyer and author from the Iranian province of Seistan-o-Balochistan, along with the local leaders of the Balochistan National Party USA, have planned to lead a protest rally in front of the White House Wednesday morning when Pakistan prime minister Mian Nawaz Sharif meets President Barack Obama.
The protest has been organized by the Baloch Community USA to protest Islamabad’s injustices on Balochistan, one of the organizers said Tuesday..
The protest will be led by M. Hossein Bor, who holds double PhD degrees, one from the American University and the second from George Washington University. Mr. Bor works as a lawyer with Entwistle & Cappucci law firm. Mr. Bor publicly supports the die-hard wahabi Jondullah organization in Iran, which was declared a terrorist outfit by the U.S.
According to the organizers, Mr. Bor will be joined in the protest by two local leaders of the Balochistan National Party, Razzaq Baloch, general secretary of the Balochistan National Party U.S. Chapter and Akram Baloch, who contested for a provincial assembly seat in the 2008 elections.
The B.N.P. is led by "Baloch Nelson Mandela" Sardar Akhtar Mengal, who is a former chief minister of Balochistan.
Hakim Said, who is also from Seistan-o-Balochistan (Iran) and is chief executive officer of the non-profit Pen Foundation, has also helped in organizing the protest.
Leaders of the Christian community, who eke out a slavish existence in Pakistan because of the blasphemy law and face killings and lynching by Muslim fanatic mobs, were also planning to hold a protest Wednesday but called it off on the hope of meeting Mr. Sharif in person.
However, the Pakistan embassy told the Christian leaders that Pakistani premier was hard-pressed for time and did not even meet his party delegation.
The protest in front of the White House will begin at 9 am.
