'Freedom March' in Karachi... By M. Khan

26 March, 2012

On March 23, the 'freedom march' was conducted by Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz, headed by Bashir Qureshi, and it was attended by a large number of people from all over Sindh. As per media reports, they demanded independence from Pakistan. This is not the first time that such a march has been launched. Last week, another political party, Jeay Sindh Tehreek, headed by Safdar Sarki, also brought out a 'million march' with the same purpose. The important thing is that the number of participants in such events is increasing exponentially.

All patriotic people must be worried because of such activities. In the past, when the people of East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) raised protests against their exploitation by West Pakistan (now Pakistan), our rulers and Karachi media both furiously reacted and labelled them 'anti-Pakistan', 'anti Islam', 'Indian agents, 'etc. Our rulers and people shed crocodile tears on the independence of Bangladesh, but, obviously, they are not ready to learn any lesson from the past.

Without supporting the intention of such a 'freedom march', I would like to draw the attention of our government and all members of parliament, irrespective of their political affiliations, to set up a commission to look into the genuine problems of the people of Sindh. As in the case of Balochistan, it is imperative to look into it before it is too late.
