KARACHI: The Founder Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM), Altaf Hussain, on Sunday said that the majority of people of Sindh had given verdict in favour of new administrative units or provinces by observing a Black Day today with eagerness.
He paid rich tributes to the people of Sindh while talking to the office-bearers and workers of the MQM at the Hyderabad Zonal Office. Hussain said that the prejudiced feudal lords of the PPP had never accepted the Urdu-speaking Sindhis or Mohajirs as the true Sindhis. The PPP sowed the seeds of prejudice and hatred in 1973. The PPP claims to be a national political party but history bears out that the PPP has always used the Sindh card and not the Pakistan card.
Hussain said that both the Sindhi-speaking Sindhis and Urdu-speaking Sindhis living in Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Mirpurkhas, Nawabshah, Sanghar, Tando Adam, Tando Allehyar, Khairpur, Jacobabad, Larkana, Kashmore and other areas of Sindh had given their verdict in favour of new provinces by observing a Black Day on the appeal of the MQM against the misrule of the PPP and their prejudice.
The people have spoken that there was a need of new administrative units or provinces in Sindh and rest of Pakistan. Hussain said it was the unanimous decision of the Sindhi-speaking people and the Urdu-speaking people or Mohajirs that together they would pull down outdated feudal system and corrupt political culture.
Mr Hussain asked the office-bearers of Hyderabad Zone and other zones to thank the Sindhi-speaking people and other nationalities in their areas for observing the Black Day.
Hussain also thanked transporters, business community and other people belonging to different walks of life for keeping their business closed on the occasion of the Black Day. He also thanked the workers and sympathizers in Punjab, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir for taking part in peaceful demonstrations.
