(EDITORIAL) While the achievement of the Muslim national goal of Pakistan has unleashed a wave of great national rejoicing and there is enthusiasm in every Muslim heart, a handful of people who were kept at bay by the Muslim masses for their disruptive activities have chosen this time to appear on the scene again with shibboleths which they think might capture the imagination of the masses. In Sind, where a fairly large number of persons from outside are proceeding in connection with the services, industry and agriculture, the idea is being seditiously fostered among Sindhi Muslims that the outsiders are coming with the ambition of dominating every aspect of their life and exploiting the province’s resources to their exclusive advantage.

… That Sind’s leadership has fully realised the danger to national solidarity inherent in the challenge of provincialism and has promptly warned the people against it, is gratifying. …Mr. G.M. Sayed and the sparse band of his followers are obviously labouring under the delusion that whereas they could not cause the slightest harm to the Muslim national movement when they attacked it frontally they would be able to sow the seeds of disruption by these clandestine operations. …It is necessary for the Muslims to warn such enemies in disguise and ask them to desist from this path.
