Dialogue to continue to solve Hazara issue


Express April 29, 2010

PESHAWAR: A meeting between lawmakers from the Hazara division and provincial ministers of Khyber- Pakhtunkhwa on the renaming of the NWFP remained inconclusive and the two sides agreed to continue dialogue to resolve the issue.

The meeting was also attended by provincial information minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain and health minister Syed Zahir Ali Shah. The meeting of the 20 legislators from the five districts in Hazara was called to discuss the prevailing situation in the division which witnessed a wave of violence following the renaming of the NWFP as Khyber- Pakhtunkhawa in the 18th amendment. The Abbottabad district saw the worst on April 12, when around seven people were killed in clashes with police during protests. Tehrik Suba Hazara led by the Sardar Haider Zaman is demanding a separate province and announced a shutter- down and wheel-jam strike in the division on May 2. Meanwhile, other political parties and assembly members from Battagram, Kohistan and parts of Mansehra district have raised their voices for an Abaseen division.

The meeting discussed the situation of the Hazara division and decided to discuss the issue of making Hazara a separate province and Abaseen division in the provincial assembly. The meeting said that all the stakeholders would jointly strive to improve the law and order situation in Hazara. The meeting will continue today and will be joined by Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti.

Khalid Khan Jadoon | 11 years ago | Reply Actually the agitators are fulfilling the hidden rather open agendas of the seen and unforseen countries to destabilize Pakistan and God Forbids to break into peaces. Those fake dummies actually have been rejected by the communities in the last elections and now are on the road to materialize and cash the renaming of NWFP. Their fathers and forefathers contribution is not unknown from the common masses on the street.They have made Plazas,acquired all of the Petrol pumps and cordon off all of the public land with barbed wires and have demarkated the areas after their names.Now on the blood of the common poor masses they want to earn more by dividing the people on Linguistic bais i.e.Hindko and Pashto and in return under the carpet they strengthen their relations by getting married in each other families.This is thier dual policy in their day to day life. So It is our humble submission to all of the peace lovers to come forward and discourage these rejected poilitical lot. The miscreants are abusing the pakhtoon community as a whole in their hunger strike camps and spreading prejudice and bias among the common people on the streets on the ethnic and linguistic basis. Through our popular media compaigners we demand that the illegal assests of all these rejected politicians should be checked and reviewed and their actual incomes should be sorted out which they have made by sucking the blood of the poor common masses and also how little they are returning back to the Government in the Income tax avenue. Dr AJ Khan and Dr Azhar Jadoon should be asked by the parents of the Pakthoon Medical student who are studying in their Medical colleges that at one hand they are sqeezing the pockets of them and on the other hand they are spreading bias and abusing Pakhtoon communities in their daily processions and through local dailies.this dual attitude by these doctors should be checked. Long Live Pakistan.Long Live Islam.long Live all Pakistanis especially Peace lovers of all the provinces of any cast creed and area.Ameen
Khalid Khan Jadoon | 11 years ago | Reply No Hazara should not be isolated from the Khyber PakhtoonKhwa and it should remain as integral strategic arm of the exisrting Province.The miscreants from PML(Q) should be dealt with irony lawmakers who want to spoil the peace and tranquility of the region.It is very sad to observe that Dr Azhar Jaddon and Dr A J Khan who are earning large amount of Finances from the parents of Pakhtoon Medical students and are running Medical colleges as Women medical college Abbottabad and frontier medical college are blamming and abousing all of the Pakhtoon Community.Moreover the linguistic Extremists have abbondoned the ATV khyber for the last 01 Month in Hazara divisionIt is cry of the day to show harmony in the country and agitation should be avoided and immediately Provincial Government should start taking confidence building measures of the common communities of hazara especially Abbottabad rather to entertain the previously Election losers of the area.
