Washington, DC: (7th, April 2012)- The executive committee of Sindhi American Political Action Committee (SAPAC) is shocked and extremely sad at the news of the sudden death of Chairman Bashir Qureshi, leader of Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz.
The timing and sudden nature of this tragic event, shortly after a very successful rally in the heart of Karachi, raises serious questions about the circumstances surrounding his death.
Therefore we demand a public inquiry into his death, by a completely neutral judicial committee, as soon as possible.
We call on the whole Sindhi nation to unite together to carry on his mission.
Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari will become fourth head of state from the neighbouring country to visit the Sufi shrine and seek the saint’s blessings; he joins an elite list that includes Mughal emperors, prime ministers, presidents
From Mughal emperor Akbar who came praying for a son, to a relentless stream of around 12,000 people who throng every day, to Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari who will visit it on Sunday, the pull of the 12th century Sufi shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer remains undiminished. ….
Long live Sindh Long live Sain GM Syed − The heirs of Sindh, My dear sisters and brethren! − I welcome you all cordially who came here from nook and corner for gathering in the capital city Karachi which is not only capital city but the heart of Sindh. − − عمر يست ڪه آواز منصور ڪهن شد − من از سرنو جلوه دهم دارو رسن را − (Time has elapsed that the voice of Mansoor has been obsolete; I want to re-embellish ropes and hang) − Sons of Sindh! − Pakistan has never been a country in any episode of history but the Sindh has remained such a motherland since thousands of years and has been bestowed with bounty of natural resources including fertile agricultural lands, roaring Indus River and coastal belt. Therefore the populace of Sindh has been the custodians of civilization when it was newly evolving elsewhere. − Out of excavation of Moen-Jo-Daro it reveals that the Sindh has traversed the different periods of olden civilizations since the period of Euphrates, Samaritans and Babylons. Comparative it was more civilized and prosperous then the contemporary civilizations of that period.
Benazir Bhutto made five pilgrimages to the Dargah Sharif of Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti, the last being in 2005. She wanted to visit one more time in 2007 but this did not materialise. Instead, she went home to Pakistan to a tumultuous welcome but ultimately to become yet another Bhutto martyr. Her friends had cautioned her that her return to Pakistan could be dangerous for her but Benazir insisted that the country needed her. Quite apparently, there were powerful figures in her country who did not want her alive. So she became the fourth Bhutto to die a violent unnatural death.
