George Floyd, a black man, was killed last Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota, by a white police officer for "abuse of power."

Violent protests have been taking place in various US cities since the incident. While citizens have taken to the streets to protest, there is a constant campaign on social media and various hashtags are trending.

But the biggest social media campaign on police violence against black people in the United States has been the hashtag 'Black Lives Meter'.

Pakistanis and Indians living in the United States are also participating in the debate, but the hashtag Black Lives Meter has now crossed borders and is trending in other countries outside the United States.

In this trend, while people are expressing solidarity with black people in the United States, such people are also being criticized for their "hypocritical attitude" towards the atrocities committed against minorities in their countries.

User Asad Sultan criticized the attitudes of Pakistani Twitter users, accusing Pakistani Muslim Twitter users of expressing solidarity with black Americans, but of killing Ahmadi community and Shiites in Pakistan and forcibly converting Hindu girls. Offers different justifications.

He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture and that his confession had been obtained through torture, but that his confession had been obtained through torture. Yes, they are either silent or happy about it.

An Indian user tweeted, "It's an embarrassment to be an Indian when Americans and some Indians add their voices to the Black Lives Meter campaign." India has failed in the matter of its minorities. We saw in the riots in Delhi that the Establishment and the media continued to fan the flames of prejudice and hatred. Compared to the United States, we are just a little better than Pakistan.

Ayesha Mohammad writes that black live meter is trending in India but the life of Kashmiris is not important. The irony of fate

The lives of Muslims are never significant in India, the lives of Dalits are never significant in India, the lives of ladies are never significant in India, the lives of evacuees are never significant in India," composes Amotha Jayadeep from India. In any case, Black Lives Meter is slanting in India. Bad faith is your name, India.

Using the Black Lives meter, Asif Khan said in his tweet that if people in the United States are joining the protests for George Floyd, then why don't we do the same for missing persons and extrajudicial killings in Karachi and Balochistan in Pakistan.

A user named Zaidi wrote in his tweet, "Whether it is the United States or Pakistan, we have seen people die because of their caste, color and religion." No democratic country in the world allows it, but it still happens in every so-called democratic state.

"You can tweet about the Black Lives meter and it will not affect what is happening to minorities, women and homosexuals in Pakistan," said Saba Malik. You can do both, have you got the problem? Follow me. '

What happened to George Floyd?

In Minneapolis, on Monday evening, May 25, police received a call from a nearby grocery store alleging that a man, George Floyd, had paid with a counterfeit ڈالر 20 note.

Police arrived at the scene and tried to get him into a police vehicle, which caused him to fall to the ground, and he told police that he was suffocated and nervous because of the confinement because he was a claustrophobic.

According to police, he resisted physically but was handcuffed. The video of the incident does not reveal how the clash started.

However, his neck was seen below the knee of police officer Derek Chavan, from where George Floyd could be heard saying, "Please, I can't breathe" and "Don't hit me."

An initial autopsy report from a county medical examiner found that a police officer had injected George Floyd's knee into his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds, after which Floyd became paralyzed about three minutes later.

About two minutes before police officer Chavan removed his knee, other officers checked George Floyd's right wrist for a pulse, but could not find it.

A lawyer for George Floyd has accused Derek Chavan of premeditated murder.
