Aziz Narejo and others who played role in the confirmation that Justice Rana Bhagwandas will address the upcoming SANA Convention as a keynote speaker deserve congratulations and our gratitude.
Indeed, this great Sindhi jodho has been brave and served the cause of justice and principles very well. In a country, where non-Muslims face so many constraints and discrimination simply because they follow another religion, the acts of Justice Rana Bhagwandas will always be remembered as bold and courageous. The resumption of democracy in Pakistan has been only a partial victory as dictator continues to be at the helm of affairs, still manipulating his control/influence through his proxies. The risk that this partial victory could be snatched from the people of Pakistan at any time cannot be minimized.
I am disappointed that SANA leadership continues to court discredited political leaders and representatives from various political parties. I urge SANA leaders to detach SANA from the intensity of Pakistani politics and truly become an organization for promoting Sindhi rights, which is the fundamental mission chartered in SANA charter.
