KARACHI: Nationalist party Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (JSQM) has announced a province-wide shutter-down strike on Wednesday.

JSQM workers along with the medical officers who had done the initial post-mortem on party chief Bashir Qureshi in Larkana arrived at Aga Khan Hospital with samples today, but were asked by the administration to come with a letter from the Secretary of Health.

The secretary instead of issuing a letter for Aga Khan Hospital referred the case to Government Chemical Lab near Civil Hospital. JSQM workers alleged that the samples had been changed at the lab and termed it a conspiracy.

The party has been demanding that the examination of post-mortem samples be carried out at a 'reputable' hospital like Aga Khan.

Talking to The Express Tribune, JSQM General Secretary Asif Baladi said they were followers of GM Syed’s philosophy and teachings based on non-violence, therefore the party would be observing a peaceful strike.

He said that the charge of acting chairman had been given to Dr Niaz Khalani, vice-chariman of the party.

The party will meet on April 13 to make some important decisions.

Larkana, Hyderabad and Sukkur boards have announced the postponement of Matric exams as a result of the shutter-down strike.

Leader of Sindhi nationalist party JSQM Bashir Qureshi had passed away in the early hours of Saturday in Sakrand after complaining of chest pains. The exact cause of death is yet to be determined.

Qureshi, a follower of iconic nationalist GM Syed, was en route from Sakrand to Larkana and reportedly complained of chest pains after dinner. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

I will suggest you to go and trace the history, hope you will hit upon only Hind and Sindh in this subcontinent. The books of uncontroversial writers of international repute i.e. Abul Kamal Azad and Mahatma Ghandi are advent of it. These guys were not Sindhi nationalists, but belonged to patriotic Muslim and Hindu families of Hindustan (historically known as Hind). Mahatma Ghandi in his autobiography has referred to historical sankrit books (historical Indo-Aryan language) where Sindhi people and this valley were called civilized and thriving communities.

1843: Before this tenure Sindh was ruled by Talpurs’ who fought against British raid. The Miani War is one of famous battlefields between local and invaders. I am not short-tempered like you, but respect Kashmirs, whose heroic role has been really fascinating character for me.

If you are really devil hunter, I will suggest you to please escape in a narrow lane otherwise you can not cut the net of this web!!
