“Sikhs & Hindus in Germany condemn attacks on their holy sites in Pakistan”.
“Stop killing Hindus, Sikhs and Christians in Pakistan”.
“Stop killing minorities in Pakistan”.
“Terrorismus unterstützende Staaten Boykottieren” which means, boycott states that support terrorism.
“Sikhs & Hindus in Germany protest the destruction of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s statute in Pakistan”.
“Shame on Pakistan, shame on Imran Khan, stop vandalism – Hindus & Sikhs condemn attacks on their holy sites in Pakistan”.
The protest was planned form 1 PM till 3 PM, largely attended by Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, and Indian Diaspora, residing in Germany.
On a poster shared for the protest, it was noted that it is a matter of great concern that the Pakistani authorities have chosen to look the other way against violence erupting towards minorities in Pakistan.
