SAVE SINDH, SAVE KARACHI

by Dr Ali Akbar Dhakan, Karachi

Sindh has suffered more and more due to migration of uncontrolled, unorganized, and unplanned population influx from all over the World. It is all because of the ignorance of the leaders of the Political Parties and ruling class of the time. The result is vary harmful for the indigenous people who are mentally and financially disturbed as all doors of their prosperity, education, commerce, employment etc have been closed. Only the people in power are enjoying and living without any trouble and difficulty but others are very much perplexed and dejected for the future coming time. It is therefore advisable to control over the migration and also establish industrial units not only in the urban areas but in the rural areas throughout the Sindh. All the roads in the Sindh may be selected for industrial units at every tenth Kilometers distance and establish more towns and urban cities at the both sides of all roads throughout the Sindh province so that people should not make abode and create social and economic problems for the local people living in a city. Other suggestions will be gathered from gentry of  Sindh.

During his last days it was said that he had lost a lot of memories, but never lost a touch of humor. I was honored to visit him in 2007, at his home in Hyderabad. He was very frail, and weak, but resented the idea that people think he was a weaker Haleem Brohi now. …
