KARACHI: 

The Awami Tehreek and banned Peoples Amn Committee (PAC) are jointly organising a rally against the proposed Mohajir province today. The rally will start from Ibrahim aka Cheel Chowk, Lyari and end at the Karachi Press Club.

The Awami National Party (ANP) and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) have also announced their support for the rally.  Before the event, Ayaz Latif Palijo, along with some activists of PAC, visited different Sindhi- and Baloch-dominated areas in order to invite people to participate in the rally.

“This rally will be a public referendum against the Mohajir province,” Palijo said. The Sindh president of the ANP, Shahi Syed, said that they will not let the province be divided and foil all conspiracies against it.

The president of the Sindh division of the PML-N, Ghous Ali Shah, has asked workers from his party to make the event successful and added that the Pakistan Peoples Party wanted to disintegrate Sindh under their reconciliation policy.

“The ANP will not accept the division of Sindh,” said Senator Shahi Syed while speaking at a press conference at Mardan House on Monday. “We will create obstacle for anyone who wants to break the province.”

Awami Tehreek’s Anwar Soomro invited ANP’s provincial chief to participate in the rally. He said that his party had also invited Jamaat-e-Islami, Tehreek-e-Insaf, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Sindh United Party, Sindh Taraqi Pasand Party, Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz, Sindh National Party, Sindh National Movement to join them.

    Now it is time to ban weapons in Karachi, all political parties should be given one week to completely give up their weapons or else their leader should face death penalty, we don’t want to face such misery every day
