Pakistan Day: JSQM leader demands freedom for Sindh and Balochistan

KARACHI: As the people across the country celebrated Pakistan Day, hundreds of thousand people from Sindh gathered in Karachi on Friday and demanded freedom for Sindh and an independent status for Balochistan. 

This demand came in a ‘Freedom March’ rally organised by the Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (JSQM), a Sindhi nationalist party, led by Bashir Qureshi.

While it was not possible to give an exact estimate of participants of the rally, both the lanes of MA Jinnah Road from Tibet Centre to Mazar-e-Quaid were filled with people holding flags of JSQM and wearing traditional Sindhi caps.

Most of the participants had though come from interior Sindh, a sizeable number of people from city’s localities of Lyari, Ibrahim, Gulshan-e-Hadeed, Malir, Gadap, Keamari and Baloch Colony were also present.

Recalling that Sindh had joined Pakistan under the resolution of March 23, 1940 voluntarily, JSQM chief Bashir Qureshi said that this resolution has lost its value as it failed to give autonomy to the federating units.

“It is therefore not logical and moral to remain with Pakistan. We now say goodbye to this country,” Qureshi said adding that Sindh contributes 80 per cent to federal budget and produces 69 per cent gas and 75 per cent oil. But people of Sindh are deprived of all opportunities.

Referring to Urdu-speaking people, he said that “they are our berths and part of Sindhi nation. But “they should give up their obsession with two-nation theory and start supporting genuine issues of Sindh.” The anthem of Jeay Sindh was also played at the rally.

Qureshi in his address not only demanded independence for Sindh, but said that Balochistan should also be recognised as a separate homeland and the Baloch as a distinct nation.

He said that Pakistan’s territorial boundaries were not sacred and it was always possible change and alter it. Criticising ‘Punjabis,’ Qureshi said “people of Sindh have always fought against the invaders and will not let any one loot and plunder the resources of the soil.”

He also criticised the extremist religious groups who, according to him, were forcing Hindu girls to convert to Islam. JSQM leader called it yet another conspiracy against Hindus of Sindh, who are masters of this land.

“At the time of partition, communal riots were designed to compel 1.3 million Hindu to migrate. In the meantime, settlers were allotted 2.5 million acre land of Sindh under bogus claims.”

The participants of the rally who came via national and super highways first gathered at Gulshan-e-Hadeed before reaching Numaish Chowrangi from where from they marched to Tibet Centre.

They were chanting slogans “Na Khapi na khapi, Pakistan Na Khapi” (We don’t want Pakistan). Other slogans they chanted included: “Tuhinjo Desh, muhinjo Desh, Sindhu Desh, Sindhu Desh” (Your country, my country is the country of Sindhu Desh) and “Tuhinjo Rahbar, muhinjo Rahbar, GM Syed, GM Syed” (Your leader, my leader is GM Syed). Many families along with children were present in March, which had come from different districts of Sindh.  Activists of other nationalist parties were also present on the occasion.

    @ ET , ‘Your Correspondence ” covering this , seems to be partial to the rally .

    “Sindh generates 80% of the revenue ” lolzzzz. Bashir Qureshi should have the moral courage to spill the truth that Karachi generates 80% revenue .Interior Sindh is like Moenjodaro .Nothing has been done for the development of Interior Sindh for the last 60 yrs .And PPP and Sindhi waderas have been in the pwer corridot almost all the time .

    And he must stop preaching Urdu speaking people what they should do .He should be thanking his lucky stars he is conduting these “separatist ” rallies in the areas dominated by the Muhajirs without any hassle .

    It is ridiculous to blame Punjab for all ills .Rather silly .Why dont you ask Mirza, Almani ,the Pirs of Sindh Assembly , what they have done for your development and well being for the last 60 yrs ?

And one of the so called Political party claims to be all over Sindh not in just Karachi so why they haven’t done anything for the rest of cities of Sindh since they have been in the Sindh Government in the previous government’s and current government as well. .

    @ Qadir Nawaz Karachi generates the revenue , the rest of Sindh produces What ????
    What a logic ……….the Party donot get elected from Interior Sindh , you always prefer to elect the offpsring of Waderas who are almost all are FORIEGN educated , unlike the PARTY’s elected represenatatives who are educated in the same schools as their voters do .
    ( Just one example , Mr.Sabzwari of MQM was in the same Chatered Accountancy firm , I was ) .

    The for the Marvi Memons , Sharjeel Memons , Bilawal Bhuttos et al ………….
    poor Sindhi students can only dream of attending those Universities and Colleges .

    These elected Wadres enjoy the quality and filthy rich life to the fullest in Karachi and always point the finger to Punjab or to the Muhajirs for ” all the deprivation ” of Sindhi people .
    Wake up if you are brave enough and if you donot , go ahead belive in the “Opressing tales ” as much as you people want to .

    As to my knowledge muslim league convened 2 working committee meetings & 2 central committe meetings were helds in lahore & karachi accordingly, rest of meetings & rallies were held in other parts of India from 1940 to 1947, so there were no mass movements & political activities for Pakistan in rural areas of Sind, Balochistan, KP except some meetings with landlords in few urban centres so therefore we didn’t produce good politicians from the begining, secondly elites of punjab were already serving in Army and who migrated were very well educated, they were bureaucrats,eterpreneurs,artists etc. Unfortunately i think they are two 2 main reasons thats why there is no ownership and feeling of patriotism in country although there is love for motherland, but everyone has its own. So the predictions of abu kalam azad became true & what Ahmed Rashid says in his latest book scares me.

    The government of Pakistan must hold genuine referendum with regards to freedom in balochistan and sindh simultaneously. If they vote for Pakistan, the issue is closed otherwise give them their freedom. Pakistan was supposed to a nation of sovereign states with huge autonomy unlike India, where it was clearly stated that the rule will be highly centralized. If some of my Pakistani brothers are upset and mention to a referendum for Kashmir then please remember, Pakistan has to remove its army from azad Kashmir and get back a part of Kashmir ceded to China by Pakistan first for this issue to be settled. Independent windy and balochistan would be good for Pakistan. Sat Sri akal, take care, cheerio. Bless you all. Have a great day.

On one point they are standing against Waderas and Jagedaran on the other hand they are in sitting Government with them.. And why are u not accepting Karachi as a part of Sindh ? And those people who point there fingers at Mohajirs because they are not getting there rights in Karachi and that’s why they are pointing out them. Karachi is the Capital of Sindh and by saying that SINDH generates 80% revenue it means that it is a part of SINDH

    Mr Salman,
    Bashir khan qureshi has rightly said that fate of karachi and urdu speaking people is with sindh. Secondly, karachi was built and developed by sindhi hindus and some parsis.. Harchandrai Vishwandas is the father of karachi who built modern karachi. Go and read history. Long before ur forefathers occupied this land. Sindh was a peacful and prosperous land with no or a few waderaas. And karachi was prosperous and peaceful city before ur forefathers occupied this city.
    “He should be thanking his lucky stars he is conduting these “separatist ” rallies in the areas dominated by the Muhajirs without any hassle .” this statement shows your mentality & ur training. I dont want to write more on this statment.
    Secondly, if say Pakistan generates rice. It means few districts of Pakistan. Similarly, If i say sindh generates 80% revenue, means karachi and the rest of sindh.
    We sindhis are peaceful people, we accepted ur forefathers and gave them place in our hearts. We accept u as our brothers. So live peacefully, accept the rights of majority. Accept sindh, accept sindhis. Dont spread hater. Fight and hater is dangerous for the both muhajirs (udru sindhis) and sindhis.

    Gosh…why are these Sindhi’s so obsessed with Punjab? Punjab has scacrificed it’s langauge and culture for the unity of Pakistan and this is what we get?

    In 1947, 89% of the migrants to the newly created nation of Pakistan were Punjabis from East Punjab who were uprooted from their homes in one night. But since the creation of Pakistan, all we hear is how the so-called Urdu-speaking muhajirs created Pakistan. Our land got divided, our people migrated, our langauge and culture is being ridiculed everyday in favor of Urdu, our province is being divided again, we contribute the highest percentage of revenue from agriculture and industry and this is what we get? Hatred?

    I am strongly in favor of autonomy for Punjab. Since Punjab is the breadbasket of Pakistan, by getting independence, we will have all our food, cotton, water, education and manpower to ourself. We should also expel the Afghan refugees from our land. Independence of Punjab will get rid of the Urdu hegemony and the degradation of Punjabi language and culture.

    Oh, and maybe the Sindhi’s will have to find someone else to blame their problems on ;)

Please don”t forget that minority cannot rule over majority. I will suggest Mohajir Bhais to give up this “mischief” approach. Please go through the history starting from Arghun, Turkhan, Mughal and even Biritish era.

    well since it seems as if my last comment was apparently censored i guess i have to do this again…

    @sindhi

    u definitely are a naive fool if u think everything will be alright once sindh separates. u say that what u need is awareness and education and that this will improve ur leadership. let me ask u this: if u arent already aware that ur leadership is corrupt after all this time, then what makes u think that u will suddenly become aware after independence? and do u actually think ur leaders will suddenly start giving u better education? if they’re not doing it now what makes u think they will do this after separation? in fact if they were giving u good education right now i wouldnt even be discussing this with u. u wont get better education until u change ur leaders but then again u dont need independence for that do u?

    u also say that like 100 countries out there, balochistan and sindh will in peace. u believe that u will be able to live freely without pakistan like bangladesh has. please..let me bring u back to reality. first of all those 100 countries dont have any strategic importance, whether its location or resources. sindh and balochistan on the other hand have both. this is why u wont be left in peace. and as for bangladesh, like them no one with a brain believes u will be attacked by india. india isnt dumb enough to do that and frankly has no reason to. all that will happen is that since pakistan will break up, the economies of the separate territories will also be that much weaker. this will allow india to spread its hegemony over us and b/c now theres no pakistan, to the rest of the region. and the last time i checked this is what happened to bangladesh. ur leaders will now not only be corrupt but sold out to india as well. so what would be the point of separation?

    btw for the record u lost a ton of credibility when u told me to read the ny and london times and of all things bbc. why would i read such biased newspapers who are always anti-pakistan and are constantly caught lying to spread their anti pakistan propaganda?

    imo u have swallowed so much propaganda and disinfo that ure in denial. u want to blame others for what u have done to urself. its not the punjabi’s fault that u are uneducated or dont have jobs. all of ur problems lie at the feet of ur leaders, who u urself have elected. but u wont admit that to urself will u, b/c its like admitting that its ur own fault.

    i will give u this piece of advice: stop denying the truth to urself b/c no matter what u try u wont be able to fix ur problems without adressing the root cause which is ur leadership.emphasized text
