This is indeed very condemn-able that despite a big show of nationalist Sindhi party, ET failed to put a line about huge presence of people in Karachi Jalsa. What a biased Journalism!! One can disagree on one's idealogy, but a fair journalism demands due coverage to every one. In ET, Talibans and extremists get coverage on front page but progressive nationalist forces.

This news item also exposes MQM and their intentions towards Sindh. Nationalists are always peaceful and secular in their nature. During SC hearing on Karachi crisis, all parties were blamed for violence in Karachi but nationalist forces. No JIT report includes any Sindhi Nationalist party. To malign peaceful and progressive struggle of Sindhi nationalist forces, some forces are trying to create propaganda and media management in order to malign their name.
