HYDERABAD, July 7: The chairman of the banned Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz, Shafi Burfat, has urged the United Nations, European Union, America, France and other foreign countries to help the JSMM get ‘freedom for Sindh’.

He said in a recorded message played at a JSMM rally held on the Fatima Jinnah road outside the State Bank of Pakistan building late on Saturday night.

“The JSMM wants to reconstitute Sindhi nation on the pattern of civilised nations of the world…After the Abbottabad operation, the state has become a nursery for jihadists and world powers should break chains of slavery that have enslaved oppressed nations,” he added.

He said that free markets could not be established until all forms of slavery in the third world were abolished. The world should avoid wishful thinking that there was democracy in Pakistan, he added.

Sindh’s mineral and other natural resources were being usurped by Punjab which had become a strategic partner with China against America and India, he said.

JSMM senior vice chairman Lala Aslam Pathan urged the Urdu-speaking people to unite under the JSMM’s flag for ‘freedom of Sindh’. “Extremists and other organisations hold Urdu-speaking community hostage but if they follow G.M. Syed’s philosophy no power on earth can dare touch them,” he said.

He condemned murder of Kachhi community people in Karachi and held the banned People’s Amn Committee responsible for it. The PAC was the armed and criminal wing of the PPP which was killing the community people, he said.

The JSMM accepted that the MQM was a political force but it should not hold real heirs of Sindh hostage, he said.

JSMM secretary general Sajjad Shar read out the party’s demands, calling for ‘independence’ of Sindh and removal of diversions on the Indus and international acknowledgement of national ownership and right over all mineral and natural resources of Sindh.

A message from Nawab Khair Bakhsh Mari was also read at the gathering.
