A demonstration has been called for by the Pakistan Hindu Council to be held outside of the High Commission of India in Islamabad on Thursday, September 24. The exact timing of the demonstration has not been announced. Demonstrators are gathering to denounce the deaths of 11 Pakistani Hindus in India and they reportedly believe that the Indian authorities are withholding information surrounding the fatalities.
Localized disruptions and a heightened security presence should be expected in the vicinity of the demonstration. Counter-protests are possible and clashes between protesting groups cannot be ruled out.
Those in Islamabad are advised to monitor the situation for developments, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
