New Delhi: Indian and Baloch activists protested outside the Pakistani Embassy in Washington DC on Monday.

While India-American protesters were protesting Islamabad's ill-treatment of jailed Indian National Kulbhushan Jhadav, the Baloch exiles were protesting the mistreatment of the ethnic Baloch population in Balochistan, Pakistan's largest province in terms of area.

Protesters united under the slogan "Chappal Chor Pakistan" (She-thief Pakistan) and deposited footwear outside the Pakistani Embassy in Washington DC.

"When they stole the chappal of a woman (Kulbhushan Jhadav's wife, who went to Pakistan to visit him) who was in distress, I hope they use these also. I want to say one thing- Pakistan ka matlab kya? Amreeka (America) se dollar la, Hindustan ke joote kha. (What does Pakistan stand for? Getting American dollars and incurring India's wrath)," one protester told ANI.

"Pakistan's narrow-mindedness was exposed with how they treated Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife. What policy makers and people here need to understand is that Pakistan as a whole is also being run with the same narrow-minded mentality," said another protester.

This comes at a time when Islamabad is facing increasing international pressure, particularly from the United States, which had recently asked Pakistan to do more in the fight against terrorism and stop providing safe haven to terrorists. The US, after a terse tweet from its President Donald Trump, had decided to stop further aid to Pakistan.
