Sudan began celebrating the ousting of their President, Omar al-Bashir last year as the military council and opposition groups agreed on a three-year transition to democracy, aimed at handing power to the people.
However, talks of that broke down in May, and ever since the Sudanese are on the streets, demanding the authorities to keep their word.
Due to this, protesters are being subjected to extreme violence by the police authorities, and the situation is so terrifying that there is currently a blackout in Sudan with the following civilian calamities:
- 500 killed
- 723 injured
- 650 arrested
- 48 girls and women raped
- 6 boys and men raped
- 1000 missing
No western media is reporting on the massacre, so human rights activists have taken it upon themselves to talk about it, raise awareness, and stop it from being suppressed at such a large scale.
Pakistani celebrities have also joined the movement and are taking to their social media accounts to bring attention to the inhumane Sudan Massacre.
Mahira Khan expressed how heartbreaking she finds it.

Mawra expressed her grief, calling it an inhumane and ugly display of power.
My heart is in pieces.
Humanity seems to be an emotion of ancient times.
What is this world we live in?
Inhumane & ugly display of power.
I stand in solidarity with #Sudan like we must for such massacres across the globe.
