Nawaz League and Sindhi Nationalists

From airport to my hotel I observed some green flags in hands of 18 million of Pakistani nation. Around 10 (million) were with green flags in their hands on motorbikes, 5 (million) on cars and remaining 3 people (million) were waiting for their beloved leader Mr. Nawaz Sharif who is a self imposed leader of his personal party called Nawaz League or Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz). A friend (Sindhi) accompanied with me she told me that you peoples’ or (Punjabi’s leader) (has finished all his tasks in Punjab and now he is here in Sindh to spread his political message in Karachi and Sindh.  [Sorry’ English word million means total men]

I surprised that she used two terms “Sindh and Karachi” separate for Sindh which she did not wanted to say. I picked her words and tried to tease her. “So you are saying that Sindh and Karachi which means Sindh and Karachi are two separate provinces with Sindh”. She wanted to defend herself and her statement and said that Nawaz Sharif did not say so but once Shahbaz Sharif had just put a question that if PPP will try to support Siraikies to bisect Punjab on basis of ethnicity than PPP will have to face a question that why Sindh can not to be divided into two regions likely to be Karachi and Sindh- She repeated that Sharif had just asked a question.

My friend quoted Kawish Newspaper in her hand. Some leaders of mainstream ethno-nationalist parties including Syed Jalal Mehammood Shah (GM Syed’s son who was great national leader), Dr. Qadir Magsi (30th September’s hero), Rasool Bux Palejo’s son Ayaz Latif Palejo (FCS’s CJ restoration movement’s leader from Sindh), Sardar Mumtaz Ali Khan Bhutto  (Patriarch, believes that PPP’s  heirs are Sardars of Bhutto tribe)  and some other leaders.

I reminded about some literature which I have seen on GM Syed’s political life. He had demanded for independent Sindh like Bangladesh. He had some meetings with General Zia also, his party was not part of MRD and alleged to be MQM designer.

I know Palejo little bit he was active in CJ’s restoration movement alongwith FCS in Lahore. He and his Janasheen son Ayaz Latif Palejo had mature understanding with Kalabag dam issue. [Mr. Palejo participation in CJ’s restoration was commendable. After CJ’s restoration I in an article suggested him to file a petition against Kalabag Dam to get favour from his ideal independent CJ but he did not. Qadir Magsi blamed to helping hand in formation of MQM in his young age. Later he was used or motivated for a massive massacre in Hyderabad on 30th September 1988. That action was committed to uphold the general elections in Pakistan and continuation of martial law in Pakistan.

My friend told me that Nawaz Sharif is accompanied by a Rahoo political leader ex-PLM (Q) leader who is son of Mr. Fazal Rahoo Shaheed. Fazal is believed father of Sindhi nation and a martyr during Zia regime because of his incredible struggle for landless people of Sindh. Incidentally at the time his martyr Nawaz Sharif was Zia’s right hand and he was appointed as Chief Minister of Punjab. Mr. Sharif at that time had not demanded for division of Sindh but I think he had known why Fazal Rahoo was killed. Fazal’s son is now Nawaz’s right hand in Sindh. Mr. Rahoo has defended Shahabaz Sharif’s statement or question about Sindh’s division in two provinces.

My Sindhi friend told me that politics is a cruel game! But I again I asked him that why Mr. Nawaz  is holding meetings with Sindhi nationalists?

Does he want Nationalists’ agreement on construction of Kalabag Dam?

Does he want their agreement for separation of Karachi from Sindh?

My friend replied NO!

He wants nationalist’s support to stop Pakistan Census 2011 and he wants to repeat politics of distrust and opposition of census 2011 like as the nationalists had performed to stop Pakistan Census 1991. Nawaz came here to beg from Sindhi nationalists because Mr. Sharif wants to teach lesson who had left him alone in Punjab and migrated to Sindh. He wants help from nationalist as those escaped poor, marginalised and bonded labourers should go back to vote and work for him. He does not want those labourer migrants to be enumerated in Sindh which may increase population (ratio wise) of Sindh.  He came here to remind nationalist that they should not distract from their original manifestos against Muhajirs in Sindh.

He wishes that the nationalist Qadri Magsi should revise 30th Sept event and other nationalists should say again that people who migrated in Sindh after 1954 should not be enumerated. And Mumtaz Bhutto should say that PPP is of tribal Bhutto’s not of Zardaris,.

My Sindhi friend agreed that nothing new but nationalist always hate PPP because PPP has never allowed them to fool people of Sindh. So nationalists like Mumtaz Ali Bhutto and others are here to oppose each PPP’s political stance. The nationalists of Sindh had always blamed people of Sindh that people who vote for PPP are fool and illiterate and they are there to chose pathways for them.

So today Topi, Ajrak and Kashmiri Pagri will be exchanged in each others honour between Nawaz League and the nationalists of Sindh.

  • Excellent piece. The Sindhi “nationalists” are like FCS; they are fake nationalists. Supporting racist Punjabis like Nawaz Sharif and ISI stooge CJ Iftikhar is a sign of their lack of sincerity to Sindhu Desh.

  • Nawaz said in his press statement that he is invited for Khana [ again trouble for Sindhi nationalist they have to arrange extraordinary food like Phajay kay Paaya, karri, English pork or halaal burger] by some nationalists and he is not going to tie with Sindhi nationalist for next election.

    Sorry in my script i mentioned 18 crore awam but he told press that 17 crore awam is with him or want something or any thing else.

  • Dear folks very sorry. Nationalist leader (hero of 30th sept) today rewarded Nawaz Sharif as only great leader of Pakistan after Muhatarma Benazir Bhutto. He agreed my figure and said that 18 corore awam and disagreed 17 caror as said Nawaz Sharif. Rasool Bux Palejo’s son said that he has requested Nawaz to solve Sindh’s issue. surprise to know that Mir Jaffars are still alive in Sindh. Today i am convinced that Nawaz Sharif is saviour of Sindh and Sindhi nationalist. Sharif promised that Cj will suo moto against Kala Bag and MQM’s act on 12th May soon. GM Syed’s son was waiting for Sharif but he did not meet him so his is annoyed. Mumtaz Bhutto was waiting in Larkarna but ignored.

  • پيپلز پارٽي ۽ سنڌ جي قومپرستن ۾ فاصلا ڇو نٿا گهٽجي سگهن؟
    ذوالفقار قادري
    سياست ۾ لاها چاڙها ايندا رهن ٿا، صدر آصف علي زرداري ڪالهه جنهن پارٽي کي قاتل ليگ پئي ڪوٺيو اڄ اها پارٽي سندس اقتدار ۾ شراڪت دار آهي. سنڌ جا اڪثر قومپرست سنڌ جي مڙني سورن جو ذميوار فوج، پنجاب ۽ پنجابي بيورو ڪريسي کي قرار ڏيندا رهيا آهن، پر ساڳئي وقت سنڌ جي قومپرستن ۽ پي پي پي درميان هميشه دوريون رهيون آهن. جڏهن ته ساڳئي وقت سنڌ جي قومپرستن جي دعا سلام نواز شريف ۽ ٻين پنجابي اڳواڻن سان چڱي رهي آهي. ڪجهه قومپرستن جو متحده لاءِ به همدردي وارو رويو رهيو آهي. نواز شريف جي هميشه ڪوشش رهي آهي ته پ پ بجاءِ سنڌ ۾ قومپرستن سان عليڪ سليڪ وڌائجي. سياسي دڳ ۽ راهون الڳ ئي سهي پر پ پ پنهنجي باني شهيد ذوالفقار علي ڀٽي جي وقت کان قومپرستن ڏانهن بي رخي سان گڏ مفاهمت جو هٿ به وڌائيندي رهي آهي. لاڙڪاڻي ۾ هاڻي وڪالت ڪندڙ ماضي ۾ قومپرست سياست ڪندڙ سيد مظفر شاهه ۽ ستار موريو پارن کي اڄ به اهي ڏينهن ياد آهن، جڏهن 1977ع ۾ ذوالفقار علي ڀٽو شهيد جي حڪمراني جي پڇاڙڪن ڏينهن ۾ مخالف ڌر جي اتحاد پاڪستان قومي اتحاد پاران هلايل تحريڪ پنهنجي اوج تي هئي، تڏهن سنڌ جي مختلف جيلن ۾ قيد سنڌ جي قومپرست اڳواڻن عبدالواحد آريسر، فاضل راهو، نظير عباسي، مولا بخش لغاري، شاهه محمد شاهه، حبيب الله، منظور خشڪ، ساجن ڏاهري علي حيدر شاهه، ابراهيم منشي، طارق اشرف، اسماعيل سوهو، غوث بخش خاصخيلي کي ڪراچي سينٽرل جيل آڻي گڏ ڪيو ويو. بعد ۾ وزير اعظم ذوالفقار علي ڀٽي جي هدايتن تي سنڌ جي تڏهوڪي وڏي وزير رئيس غلام مصطفيٰ جتوئي ۽ هوم سيڪريٽري محمد خان جوڻيجي سڀني قيدي قومپرستن کي چيف منسٽر هائوس ۾ گڏ ڪيو، جتي ذوالفقار علي ڀٽي کانئن پنهنجي دور حڪومت ۾ ٿيندڙ زيادتين تي معذرت به ڪئي هئي ۽ قومپرستن ڏانهن تعاون ۽ دوستي جو هٿ به وڌايو هو. اها ٻي ڳالهه آهي ته ذوالفقار علي ڀٽي طرفان آڇيل وڏين وڏين نوڪرين کي انهن قبول نه ڪيو پر چيف منسٽر هائوس ۾ لنچ بعد نوجوان سينٽرل جيل روانا ٿي ويا.
    سائين جي ايم سيد به انهي رواداري واري روايت کي برقرار رکيو هو. سائين جي ايم سيد جڏهن لاڙڪاڻي ۾ ميڊم حميده کهڙو جي والد خانبهادر محمد ايوب کهڙي جي دعوت تي لاڙڪاڻي آيو ته خانبهادر محمد ايوب کهڙي جو کهڙو هائوس ۽ المرتضيٰ هائوس هڪ ٻئي جي سامهون آهن. جڏهن سائين جي ايم سيد جي نظر المرتضيٰ هائوس جي در تي سونهري نالي وارين پليٽن تي پئي، جنهن مان هڪ تي لکيل هو ته، ”سر شاهنواز ڀٽو“ ۽ ٻي پليٽ تي لکيل هو ”ذوالفقار علي ڀٽو بار ايٽ لا“. سائين جي ايم سيد ان وقت ايوب کهڙي جي ماني به نه کاڌي هئي، سيد المرتضيٰ هائوس اچي پهتو. جيتوڻيڪ سائين جي ايم سيد ذوالفقار علي ڀٽي جي دور ۾ اڪثر نظر بند رهيو، پوءِ به اچي المرتضيٰ هائوس ۾ بيگم نصرت ڀٽو ۽ محترمه بينظير ڀٽو صاحبه سان ذوالفقار علي ڀٽي جي ڦاهي تي رضاءِ خدا ڪندي تڏي تي ويٺو هو. اها روايت بينظير ڀٽو صاحبه به نڀائيندي آئي جڏهن سائين جي ايم سيد وفات ڪئي ته انهن ڏينهن ۾ محترمه بينظير ڀٽو وزير اعظم هئي. بينظير صاحبه سائين جي ايم سيد جي فرزندن امير حيدر شاهه ۽ امداد شاهه سان تعزيت جو پروگرام رٿيو، خفيه ادارن ۽ ٻين حلقن بينظير صاحبه کي منع ڪئي ته سائين جي ايم سيد جي جيئي سنڌ ۽ عليحدگي پسند واري نظرئي سبب پاڪستان جي وزير اعظم جو سن وڃڻ صحيح نه ٿيندو. پر شهيد راڻي بينظير ڀٽو اهڙين رپورٽن کي رد ڪندي بيگم نصرت ڀٽو کي ساڻ ڪري اچي سن پهتي. بينظير ڀٽو صاحبه اها روايت بلوچ قومپرستن سان به روا رکي. جڏهن نواب خير بخش مري جي فرزند مير بالاچ مري جي شهادت جي خبر محترمه کي پئي ته ان وقت پاڻ جلاوطني ختم ڪري بلاول هائوس ڪراچي ۾ هئي، فوري طور سڀ کان پهرين سياسي اڳواڻن ۾ بينظير ڀٽو صاحبه نواب خير بخش مري جي رهائش گاهه تي پهتي هئي. اهڙي طرح بينظير صاحبه ڪوئيٽا ۾ منع ڪرڻ باوجود نواب اڪبر بگٽي جي تعزيت لاءِ شاهزين، جميل ۽ طلال بگٽي وٽ پهتي. جڏهن ته ماضيءَ ۾ جئي سنڌ جي حوالي سان سياست ڪندڙ اڳوڻو شاگرد اڳواڻ گل محمد جکراڻي نئين ديري ۾ آغا سراج، ذوالفقار مرزا، اياز سومرو، خورشيد جوڻيجو ۽ جميل سومرو معرفت محترمه بينظير ڀٽو جي شهادت کان محض چار ڏينهن اڳ 23 ڊسمبر تي پ پ ۾ شموليت پئي ڪئي ته آئون به اتي محترمه بينظير ڀٽو وٽ موجود هئس. بينظير صاحبه سنڌ جي قومپرستن جي مان ۾ جيڪي لفظ چيا، اهي سڀني کي ياد آهن. آصف علي زرداري پڻ ڪراچي سينٽرل جيل ۾ ڊاڪٽر قادر مگسي، بشير خان قريشي، ۽ ٻين قومپرستن سان اسيري جا ڏينهن گهاري چڪو آهي. موجوده سرڪار ۾ قانون وارو وزير اياز سومرو ۽ تعليم وارو وزير پير مظهر الحق جيڪي سکر سينٽرل جيل، مچ سينٽرل جيل لانڍي سميت ڪئين جيل ڏسي چڪا آهن، اهي پڻ رسول بخش پليجو، فاضل راهو، عبدالواحد آريسر، ڄام ساقي ۽ ٻين ترقي پسندن ۽ قومپرستن جا جيل جا ساٿي رهي چڪا آهن. مون جڏهن 1983ع ۾ لانڍي جيل مان آزادي ماڻي ته ساڳئي بيرڪ ۾ مخدوم خليق، اياز سومرو ۽ پير مظهر مچ سينٽرل جيل کان شفٽ ٿي پهتا، سو هنن همراهن ته پنهنجي بيرڪ جو نالو ئي ”پڃرو پنهوارن جو“ رکي ڇڏيو هو.
    چوڻ جو مطلب اهو آهي ته ميان نواز شريف لاهور مان ڪهي سنڌ اچي سنڌ جي قومپرست ڌرين سان رابطه وڌائڻ جي ڪوشش ڪري رهيو آهي ته اهو ڪم پ پ کي اڳ ڪرڻ کپندو هو. موجوده سرڪار جي وقت ۾ ذوالفقار ڪولاچي، سرائي قربان کهاوڙ، روپلو چولياڻي، نور الله تنيو، نادر بگٽي جا چچريل لاش ملڻ ڪو سٺو سنوڻ ڪونهي. اڄ به سنڌ مان نوجوانن جي پراسرار طور کنڀجي وڃڻ جهڙا ڪيس رپورٽ ٿي رهيا آهن. پ پ قيادت ماضي ۾ جن کي قاتل ليگ قرار ڏنو، جڏهن انهن سان دوستي جو هٿ وڌائي کين اقتدار ۾ ڀاڱي ڀائيوار ڪري سگهجي ٿو ته سنڌ جي مسئلن تي رسول بخش پليجو، ڊاڪٽر قادر مگسي، بشير قريشي، عبدالواحد آريسر، سيد جلال محمود شاهه، شاهه محمد شاهه، شفيع برفت، ابرار قاضي رياض چانڊيو، امير ڀنڀرو ۽ ٻين سان ڳالهائڻ ۾ به ڪو عيب ڪونهي.
