Kathmandu, 26 February: A group of Nepali civil society members staged a silent protest in front of Pakistani Embassy in Kathmandu protesting against the terror attack in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on February 14.
The members of the civil society held banners and pamphlets of Lord Buddha, Mahatma Gandhi Mother Teresa and staged silent protest holding placard bearing slogans like “ stop terrorism” “ enough is enough” and “ stop bloodshed”.
