KARACHI: After Benazir Bhutto was assassinated, fires broke out across Sindh. The rumours were that the land ownership records were burnt for the entire province. The truth is, however, that only those of 887 dehs out of 6,000 were burned, according to Zulfiqar Shah of Larmis. “It was mainly arson but is also suspected that the record was only partially damaged and they made it disappear,” he told The Express Tribune. Arson completely burned the records of Naushahro-Feroze, taluka Mehrabpur. Thatta also suffered as did Jamshoro. The good news is that the records are being reconstructed. Nearly 600 dehs have been done. A committee is working under a retired member of the Board of Revenue, Nazar Mohammad Leghari, who Shah says is a man of “well known integrity”. Village Forms 7A and B are being summoned from people and other sources and they are being checked and cross checked. Open katchehries are being held in every deh as well.
