The fascist terrorists want violence because their survival lies in it

By: Zulfi

We live in our Urdu speaking brothers dominated areas of Hyderabad for centuries and have very good connections and social relations with people of other linguistics and ethnic groups, especially with our urdu speaking brothers and sister – for the last couple of months I have been noticing a debate on the issue of new province in Sindh and an expected Sindhi-Urdu Speaking conflict. Most of the reports are coming from MQM related circles.

MQM has asked its people to get ready for any unexpected (which in fact is already planned by the fascist terrorists of MQM) fight with Sindhis, Balochs, Pakhtuns and other communities of Sindh.

Political parties working for Sindh interests should give as head to it issue.

Sindhis are expressing concerns over mass migration to Sindh but are not against any particular ethnic group

The developments after 1947 partition have put Sindhis in such a precarious situation that with each change, we further get squeezed between the expanding rick and the hard place!

One thing does appear clear that MQM is definitely manipulating the situation to put Pakhtuns and Sindhis into a direct conflict. Any serious conflict between Sindhis and Pashtuns would only benefit MQM and yet we must express concerns on any mass migration from any other country or province. Failure to do so would mean that we are OK with a situation where we loose out the population advantage in our own province. The prudent way would be to make it clear that our concern against any mass migrations to Sindh are not against any particular ethnic group but rather we are against a situation that dilutes our majority.

Ethnic violence in Karachi-MQM’s broken moral compass

I was thrilled to see a joint press conference held by Pakistan People’s Party home minister Dr Zulfiqar Mirza, Muttahida Qaumi Movement leader Dr Farooq Sattar and Awami National Party leader Amin Khattak in which they declared not to side with the perpetrators of ethnic violence in Karachi. I should have known it was too good to be true. Within a few hours another press conference called by MQM demanded a selective enforcement of the law.

In neglecting to protect the Pakhtuns and establishing law and order, the Pakistani state failed Pakhtuns miserably. It is this failure of the state that has led to the violation of its sovereignty, first by the Taliban and now by the US.
