Today with a chance I saw documentary aired on Sindh Tv written by Manzoor Solangi to slam Awami Tehrik with special reference to Palijo Saheb on account of hereditary political nature of AT.
You are right to highlight hereditary political trends in politics of Sindh but wrong to prove this only through Awami Tehrik. You have done well to criticize this trend but done worst to criticizes only through AT. It mainesfetly shows, your words are watered with partiality, bias, some vested interest and personnel vendetta.
None can deny importance of constructive political criticism which helps to identify grey areas and put forth ways to correct the directions and offer intelleuatls ideas to materialize. But the matter of serious concern is that, the way you have taken critical account is totally biased, void of honesty, partial and directed.
I support your freedom of making critical view of AT, but strongly condemn irresponsible use of freedom. We support freedom but coupled with responsibility. It is not only AT submerged into hereditary politics as to you but most of political parties of Sindh are confronted with same trend. Why didn’t you bring all those into critical account? Why after all only AT to be slammed to be proved that politics of Sindh is submerged into Hereditary politics.
You are giving wrong lesions to new generation and offering totally flawed and destructive way and methods of political criticism. Already Sindh is lacking in political literature and constructive criticism. You are adding, but wrongly.
You could have made it marvelous and winning our support and applause if you have honestly criticized hereditary trends in overall politics of Sindh with special reference to Pakistan and South Asia by giving examples of Awami league, Bangladesh nationalist Party, SLF, Congress, ANP,PML-N and so on .
We do demand that parties working for democracy should be ideally democratic in their overall structure and operation. But it is ideal demand. In practice parties working in south Asia can’t be entirely free of clutches of hereditary politics owing to particular social structure.
