HYDERABAD: The Sindh Hari Committee (SHC) here on Wednesday adopted a resolution for the recovery of missing persons of Sindh and Balochistan and demanded that those who had murdered nationalist workers like Maqsood Qureshi and Salman Wadho be exposed and arrested.

The resolution was adopted at the 44th birth anniversary programme of hari leader Comrade Hyder Bux Jatoi in Kalhoro Colony where speakers paid tribute to him.

A wreath was also laid on his grave.

The gathering adopted several resolutions, including the one for withdrawal of the Protection of Pakistan Ordinance (PPO).

It demanded an inquiry into assets of MPAs and MNAs, and recovery of ill-gotten money from them.

It also said that state land should be got vacated from land grabbers and landowners and distributed among landless peasants; karo-kari should be put to an end; all religious minorities should be protected; human rights violations in Sindh should be controlled and women should be given property and other rights.

SHC leader Azhar Jatoi said Sindhi people were lucky that they had leaders like the late Jatoi who had always wanted to see prosperous haris.

He called for boycott of waderas, adding that the message of Jatoi should be spread across the province.

He said Jatoi always stood for the just cause of the poor.
