Opinion: Is it a new development OR an old fashioned move against govt…any role by establishment?

by: Saifullah Shaikh

News are emerging from Sindh that Sindhi Nationalist Parties (under leadership of Awami Tahreek) has decided in a meeting at QASIMABAD that they are willing to take part in General elections in greater benefit of Sindh/national rights because present PPP Govt: is not successful in achieving such rights!!??—-they are also of the opinion that if present Govt: would collapse than Prime-minister have option to announce mid-term elections!and they will participate in such election process?. Well as a student of politics, I have few Questions to ask about this kind of Nationalism.

1. At the end of AwamiTehreeks Long-march in Karachi, Why their leadership allowed pro-Musharaf anti-democratic/anti-Sindh elements like Tahreek i insaf and Jamaat i Islami to use their stage for speeches —– what was their purpose?

2. A lot of Sindhis would question the timings of such pro-active role of Sindhi nationalists When PPP is preparing a case for Sindh in terms of NFC AWARD and for Balouchis in terms of Balouchistan Package (as a new initiative for Balouch Rights). Keep in mind the on-going war, PPP is fighting with Taliban, and other forces in this regard. PPP is also facing Media Propaganda and attacks against Sindhi culture as well.

3.Could it be the same old tactics of Sindhi Nationalists which reminds us their opposition to MRD Movement during 1980’s!? or Can we consider this move (BY ESTABLISHMENT as their long-awaited planning) to dilute PPP majority in Sindh in order to benefit MQM and Nawaz-League and their Chauvanism in long-term fashion. I think these are legitimate Questions which need satisfactory explanation— other people may disagree on this analysis also.

  1. one ethnic group sindhi logon ke qatil h puri dunya ko pata h phir PPP ne ethnic group k sath Ethad kyon kya? Sindh Assembly men aur b Sindhi log jo abhe opposition men bethe hen us k sath ethad kyon neahen kya? PPP sirf NFC ka kamzor case pesh ker rahe h, PPP ke Govt: men Benazir k Qatil Girftar kyon nahen hote? Tahreek e Insaf ya Jamait e Islami agar qomparston k stage use karte hen to is ka matlab ye to nahen hua k in parties k sab log Sindh dushman hen. Qomparst to kam se kam Sindh dushman logon k sath ethad to nahen karte, PPP ne MQM k sath ethad kya, NRO k zarye case maaf karwe, PPP qomparton k ethad se khof zada h, kyon k wo election men muqabla karen ge. ye wqt ke zarurat h. PPP ka koi be banda ek muzbut Sindh case nahen bana saka.

  2. With Respects,
    I think this type of alignment among the political parties has become the regular feature of Pakistani politics. Why PPP should afraid of these alliances in sindh? It is supposed to be known as a democratic champion, therefore, tolerate it democratically. It is the democratic right of Nationalists to participate in the General Elections and show their strength. PPP should be proud to see the Nationalits in the mainstream politics, rather it should develop working relationship with them to make them future partner in the game of power. Certainly they would be proved more reliable power sharing partners for them. PPP must also review its behavior towards the Nationalists of Sindh in the greater interest of the Province and the country. PPP leadership should also move to the middle class cadre which can be proved as a very effective tool against its opponents in the battle field of politics in the interiors of Sindh. PPP should not wholly depend on the Waderas, Sardars and Lords, because the time has been changed completely.
    I will also request my fellow Nationalists to study the ground realities properly, do home work, make a thorough analysis of sindhi society and make proper use of political wisdom to win the hearts of people. Please do not be the tool of Punjabi Establishment. Do not allow the Agencies directly or indirectly to make use of your plateforms. We have observed during the protest rallies, agencies have make a use of your stages through their Sindhi Agents. Make your independent policies purely under the democratic ethics not for the sake of PPP opposition. Take only issues before the people of Sindh with logic. Be loyal and do with honesty. I am sure you will have good experiece during this race of power and will get your strength mesured.
    You should also not forget that this is only one of the factors towards the achievement of ultimate political objective i-e Freedom of Sindh.
