London (United Kingdom), Oct 28 (ANI): On its 30th Annual Conference, the World Sindhi Congress raised the issue of construction of mega dams by Pakistan and abduction of activists who were raising voice against these projects. At the conference, the activists requested the international community to help save the cultural identity of the Sindhi people. Lakhu Luhana, General Secretary of World Sindhi Congress said, “Sindh is in the face of unprecedented abuses of human rights which include enforced disappearances, the violence against religious minorities, to pursue the construction of mega dams which Sindhi people have always refused and struggled against which will basically suffocate the life of Sindhi people the construction of CPEC is anti-people and anti-environment and without any consultations of Sindhi people and their rights. That’s the situation putting Sindhi people in great disadvantage, pushing them into perpetual poverty, suffering, pain.”
