to demand the world body declare Pakistan a terrorist state.
Raising anti-Pakistan slogans and displaying banners and placards denouncing the Mumbai terror outrage, Indian-Americans alleged that almost all the major terrorists attacks of the world in recent years have their bases in Pakistan .
As such it was high time the United Nations, the powerful Security Council in particular, take measure to declare it as a terrorist state.
The peaceful demonstration, which lasted for about two hours, was organized by Overseas Friends of BJP (OFBJP).
" Pakistan should immediately be declared as a terrorist State," said Rajesh Shukla of the OFBJP.
In a memorandum submitted to the Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, the OFBJP urged him to take necessary action to ensure that terrorists from Pakistan do not strike again. "We urge the Security Council to immediately pass a resolution in this regard," the memorandum said.
Meanwhile, the NRIs for Secular and Harmonious on Friday welcomed the decision of Security Council to slap ban on Jamaat-ud-Dawa.
"Banning Jamat-ud-Dawa is a good beginning," the organization said. " Pakistan must destroy all the masterminds of these acts of historic infamy which took place on Indian soil on 26/11," it demanded.
