SAN JOSE, CA: Various San Francisco, Bay Area NRI organizations’ representatives, came together in front of San Jose City Hall on Friday September 30 under the coordination of OFBJP Northern California, to protest and express their outrage at the recent terrorist attack killing Indian soldiers at Uri, in Kashmir and the recent blasts in New York and New Jersey.
Protestors carried placards displaying slogans highlighting recent terrorist acts. The citizens of San Jose supported this rally by honking horns and joined the rally to show their outrage.
The protesters were encouraged by the presence of San Jose City Council Member Ash Kalra, who joined in spite of his busy schedule. In a brief impromptu Interview to INO-TV, he supported the protest by condemning the terrorist attacks and appreciated the efforts of the community volunteers for organizing the protest.
Chandru Bhambhra, Coordinator of Overseas Friends of BJP- Northern California, when asked by the INO-TV group to highlight the purpose of the protest, said the protest was arranged to appeal to United Nations and the United States to identify the countries nurturing and sponsoring terrorism throughout the world and isolate them by declaring them terrorist states.
Dr Romesh Japra, renowned Cardiologist, India Post Publisher and Community leader condemned these attacks and told INO-TV that since there is enough proof against Pakistan, UN should immediately declare Pakistan a terrorist State!
Gaurang Desai, President, Friends of India Society International-CA (FISI), reminded that Indians have been working towards declaring Pakistan a terrorist nation for over a decade as it has been epicenter of terror for a long time.
Mrs. Ashwini Surpur, indicated that UN has failed to even come together to define what is terror. If the recent attacks are not terror attacks then what are they?
From OFBJP, Lalji Goswami, Shivu Vibhuti, Gaurav Patwardhan, Mahadev K., Bhriguraj Singh, Sunil Ganu and Prabhu Patel and Community leaders Rajesh Verma, Jeevan Zutshi, Pandit Krishna K Pandey, Anil Surpur, Praveen Ohir, Nilesh Pathak, Suresh Patel (Palo Alto), Mahesh Patel, Basu Ullagaddi, Upendra Giri, Vinod Kumar and several others, also urged that since all these terrorists are either sponsored or supported by Pakistan, the UN should declare Pakistan a terrorist State immediately.
