Speaking to participants of a long march off the National Highway, they said that although the government adopted anti-Sindh polices and failed to solve basic issues of people, the AT would not anyone to topple its government AT leader Rasool Bux Palijo, president Ayaz Latif Palijo and Sindhiani Tehrik leader Zahida Shaikh were addressing participants of the long march off the National Highway on Saturday. Hundreds of people joined them to express solidarity. Participants raised slogans and staged a sit-in. Songs were also sung in solidarity with the People’s Party.
… President Awami Tehreek and human rights lawyer Ayaz Latif Palijo, expressed these views in an interview with The Nation on Saturday. He said all the rulers of the past including Pakistan Muslim Leagues and People’s Party and their feudal cronies have always caused loss to Pakistanis in general and the Sindhis in particular and that the last two years have been no different.
On 22nd November, Quomi Awami Long March led by Rasool Bux Palijo has reached Karachi, and thousands of Man, women and children marched from Mazar-e-Quid to Imprest Market, the historical place from where Sindh played his role in 1857 war against British. Main leadership of Muslim League (N), Jamait-e-Islami, Sindh Taraqi Pasand Party, Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf, Muslim League (Q) and civil society showed absolute solidarity and participated in this Grand Peaceful Public Gathering of more than two hundred thousand Sindhis including about fifty thousand women. Participation and unanimous support of leaders of various political parties indicates that they are united over the issues and all called this event as most exceptional, mammoth, unique and longest protest march in Indo-Pak history and congratulated Awami Tahreek and Rasool Bux Palijo for this heart-awakening march. First time a march of a Sindhi Nationalist political party was the big head line evening news for all English, Urdu and Sindhi TV channels and named as a remarkable and unprecedented massive show of strength of indigenous local people.
Pushed to the wall, the people in Sindh seem to be coming together. First JSQM’s mammoth rally of November 7 and now AT’s big public meeting at the culmination of its 46-day, 900-kilometer “Long March” in Karachi today. Another party, STP is to hold a grand rally in Karachi in January.
Congratulations to Jeeaey Sindh Qaumi Muhaz and Awami Tahreek for their peaceful and highly successful rallies and best wishes to Sindh Taraqi Pasand Party for their upcoming event.
It is auspicious to see major political parties and groups in Sindh coming together to work for the rights of the people. Hope their cooperation with each other will help end injustices and bring peace and prosperity to the people and the land who have suffered heavily during last 62 years under various democratic as well as undemocratic regimes.
The next step should be sitting together of the leadership of these parties and groups and chalking out a plan to take Sindh back. Holding big rallies is good but should be considered only a beginning of a thorny and complex journey.
Rasool Bux Palijo’s Quomi Awami Long March is on its way to Karachi and will reach at Ghaghar Phattak, the outskirt of Karachi on 18th November and will march four days in Karachi. On 22 November as its last 46th day it will be turned in Grand Peaceful Public Gathering from Mazar-e-Quid to Press Club Karachi, Sindh.
Long March of Awami Tehrik from Kashmore to Karachi designed for multiple agendas is in way with vigor and enthusiasm towards its destinations. We can’t resist the temptation of paying glowing tribute to the marchers, walking in scorching sun, especially to daughters of this soil.
Awami Tehrik enjoys a large amount of proportion in contribution towards nationalist politics of Sindh. Some of the most significant aspects of politics of Awami Tehrik can be summed up thus: To evaluate and the analyze the issues in very scientific manner in light of local and international changing realities and to formulate its policies accordingly ;to highlight and create role of women in politics;to explode the myth that nationalist politics of Sindh is only confined to the parties and groups affiliated with ideology of Saeen G.M Sayed and to discard the impression that the from and manifestation of nationalist politics determined by G.M Sayed’s affiliated groups is final an determintal ; to integrate art with politics where by producing it vigiour,enthususiasm,spirit and charm;to create a reasonable and balanced blending of various existing political trends in Sindh viz, democratic, leftist and nationalist into its slogan of Qomi, Awami, Jamhoori, Tabqati Inqalab; and to promote trend of ideological orientation and training into politics.
We support the spirit and purpose of the long march. I welcome and appreciate your efforts against terrorism, autocracy, discrimination, corruption, jirga and sardari system. We support you in condemning the practice of karo kari (honor killings); asking for provincial autonomy, educational and health facilities and demanding the ownership of natural resources and opportunities for employment.
These are worthy causes. Until today, the struggle has not yielded the desired results. However, we cannot and should not give up these worthy causes. God works in own ways. May be the time is NOW and your and our efforts will make it happen.
Regardless of our party affiliation or personal misgivings or personal preferences, I urge all freedom loving people to keep working for these worthy causes..
This is to introduce to you a patriotic socio-political organization Awami Tahreek (Peoples Movement) based in Sindh, (Pakistan) with its Headquarters at Hyderabad, Sindh.
People connected with Awami Tahreek have been in the fore front of every democratic and patriotic movement and struggle in Pakistan in general and Sindh province in particular since the mid-sixties.
Awami Tahreek is an organization with a broad world out-look and believes in all around and all-embracing change for the better in all fields in Sindh and Pakistan, in South Asia, Asia and the third world and in our entire global village which is also called the space-ship earth.
“This is a stronghold of Bijarani, Somroo, Jhakhrani, Oghai and Taighani sardars,” answered a handsome Sindhi villager who was sitting next to me on a charpai at a roadside restaurant on the Super Indus Highway, where we had stopped to have tea. My peculiar appearance (white beard, moustache and a ponytail) and interest in their issues caught the attention of others, who wanted to share their thoughts. In order to trigger a debate, I asked about the role of these tribal sardars in local development and their well being. No one had anything good to say about the sardars and the successive governments in which the former have played a major role. Almost everyone complained about their tyranny, and the lack of educational and health facilities. Among them was a teacher who said that it had been many years since a school was opened or upgraded in his taluka. In fact, most schools had become non-functional despite the swelling population.
