Netizens deluged Twitter only a day after a freedom rally in Sann, a small town in the Jamshoro district of Sindh province, where demonstrators were seen appealing for help in their drive to establish a Sindh homeland from various world leaders, including the Indian prime minister Narendra Modi.
Several protesters were seen holding placards of Modi and other world leaders including US President-Elect Joe Biden, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
Shafi Burfat, the founder and current chairman of Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz (JSMM), a political party fighting Sindhudesh Freedom from Pakistan, took to Twitter to urge Prime Minister Modi to support them and posted a video of the protest.
Burfat has been hiding for more than two decades, and JSMM was declared a terrorist organisation by the Pakistan government in 2013.
The video of people raising slogans such as “we want freedom” went viral with netizens either supportive or sarcastic about Modi.
A netizen blasted the anti-Indian government voices in Kashmir, saying that it is in fact Pakistan which is going to pieces.

Some just expressed their support for Prime Minister Modi, saying that India is lucky to have such a leader.
However, some netizens chose to mock Modi over the issue.
Modi ji can't give rights to the people of his own country but always ready to do conspiracies against Pakistan by using you paid agents who loves money and want us to be the slave of them but we love our country and reject JSMM ♥— Komal Aziz (@Komalaziz771) January 17, 2021
Another netizen said Modi will not do anything.
Sry to disappoint u but Modiji will not do anything— Melon Rusk (@MenOfManu) January 17, 2021
Another social media user accused the Pakistani army of giving "a bad name" to Sindh protesters by introducing such placards.
Obviously the Pakistani Government forces/ Army is going all out to give the agitators in Sindh a bad name by deliberately introducing such placards - they will claim it is a RAW attempt to undermine their Nation— Shyam Prasad Rao (@ShyamPrasadRao1) January 18, 2021
