Karachi is the inseparable Capital of Sindh

BHRC (Canada) Press release : Toronto , January 13 – Baloch Human Rights Council ( Canada ) has declared the recent killings of the indigenous Baloch populace in Karachi as a wider plan of the ethnic group to assert its administrative control over the city. The hegemonic and expansionist designs of ethnic group supported by the state policies are the root cause to all ethnic and sectarian strife and violence in Karachi, Sindh. The goals sanctioned by the ethnic group’s reign of terror against lawyers in the past, looting and burning of two thousand shops, target killing of indigenous social activists who resisted land grabbing, and the indiscriminate killings of innocent Baloch and Sindhis in Karachi, Sindh – is to decapitate Sindh’s capital from its historical and cultural roots and run it mafia-like as the Hong Kong of South Asia.

BHRC strongly condemns the PPP-MQM Sindh Government policies of discrimination and use of force against the innocent Baloch under the disguise of ‘operation-clean-up’ to rein in gangs and criminal elements. Ironically, in 1983, military operation against the Sindhis in the rural areas originally meant to crush the strong opposition to military rule was conducted under the similar pretext of “killing dacoits” in which thousands of innocent people lost their lives or were imprisoned.
