Baloch observe 'down with Pakistan' day in US

Washington, Aug 28 (PTI) The small Baloch community in and around Washington has observed the third death anniversary of their leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti as "Down with Pakistan" day.

Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti (79), the former governor and chief minister of Balochistan, was killed on August 26, 2006, in a military operation ordered by the then President General Pervez Musharraf.

The protest here was organised by the pro-liberation American Friends of Balochistan. Its activists began their protest in front of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, where Muslim Lakhani, who had heaped praise on the military regime of Musharraf, is a council member.
