A protest is scheduled to be held by Baloch and Pashtun activists in front of the United Nations Office at Geneva, near the Broken Chair, against the involvement of the Pakistani military establishment in breeding terror outfits.

Since 9/11 Mumbai terror attack, Pakistan has been the epicentre of international terrorism, and the region of North Waziristan, which borders Afghanistan, used to be a hub of local and international terrorists linked to groups such as Al-Qaeda and Taliban. The Pakistani government has been actively involved in terrorist activities within the region and beyond by sponsoring terrorist groups.

The unregulated financial structure of Pakistan paves the way for the irregular transfer of money while feeding terrorism in the country. According to reports, terrorists in Pakistan are able to organise, plan, raise funds, and operate easily in the country because of lack of governance and political will to address the problem.

The government is not willing to tackle this issue due to its engagement with illegal activities. Therefore, the activists are demanding that the UN should reprimand Pakistan, take immediate action to stop this and establish the rule of law in the region.
