A new force has arisen on the Sindh’ political arena. This new force is demanding a new province for Mohajir. Their activities stated with small rallies and chalkings. Yesterday, they carried out a big rally and marched towards the press club. The question is: Who is providing support to this new force?
A lot of people have started blaming MQM for this. However, PPP’s Nishar Khuro said that he did not know who was behind these people. He said that people are supporting them should tell their names. He said this was not the first time that people were talking about a provinces. He added that Sindhi groups too demanded for a separate homeland. It is the peopel who decide by their votes whether they like the ideologies of these people. Elections can decide. I agree with him.
MQM’s Waseem Akhtar clariied in Jasmeen’s Program that MQM was not supporting them. However, said that people in power talk to them what are their demands. In response to a Jasmeen’s question, he said points raised by the groups should be given due attention. He said not only this group whole Sind is talking about the Injustices. He added that Sindh not only produces revenue but also gas and oil too.
Shehzed. a representaive of the Mohajir Tehreek tried to explain his views.
