Reportedly more than 100 taxis are running in New York with the slogan "#FreeBalochistan from human rights abuses in Pakistan."
The spokesperson for the World Baloch Organisation, Bhawal Mengal said: "Balochistan was annexed by Pakistan against the people's will in 1948 and has been under military occupation ever since, with mass kidnappings, torture, and executions by the Pakistan army. Pakistan wants to keep this hidden. We are doing this campaign to expose these abuses," ANI reported.
Bhawal Mengal urged the US to hold Pakistan accountable for its crimes and cut off all the military aid to Pakistan.
The campaign has been receiving support from around the world on social media.
