Condemning the February 14 Pulwama attack that claimed lives of 40 CRPF troopers in Jammu and Kashmir by a Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist, members of the Indian community staged protests outside the Pakistani consulates in New York and Chicago recently.
Police stopped 400 protesters from approaching the consulate building and cordoned them off next to Central Park, across the avenue, in New York on Friday.
For next two hours, they protested peacefully saying
“Vande Mataram” and “God Bless America” along with slogans denouncing Pakistan’s support for terrorism.
A delegation visited the consulate to handover an MoU seeking “credible and visible” action against the perpetrators of the Pulwama carnage that was claimed by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) and the 2008 Mumbai terror attack that claimed 163 lives.

The diplomats at the consulate, refused to accept the memorandum, which also asked for freedom for Kulbhushan Jadav, who has been sentenced by a Pakistani military court as a spy, and for handing over JeM chief Masood Azhar and Dawood Ibrahim, who is wanted for 1993 terrorist bombings in Mumbai, to India.
