June 30, 2017: World Sindhi Congress has recently passed a resolution in Geneva outside UN headquarters, according to which they would call upon the government of Pakistan to put an end to all acts of exploitation of Sindhi people and other minorities in Pakistan. The resolution was presented on the abysmal human rights situation in Sindh and Balochistan before the media.
The representative of World Sindhi Congress, Mr Gul Sanai has pointed out the situation of Sindhis and other minorities in Pakistan facing problems. A brief synopsis of the resolution was read by Mr Sanai which accused Pakistan of violence and marginalization of Sindhi minorities.
The resolution stated that religious extremism and fundamentalism was being funded by foreign money and many minority based areas of Pakistan are suffering from poverty, unemployment, and low education standards.
Further, it also stated, “Pakistan must stop attacking and killing Sindhi nationals and other political activists; conduct judicial inquiries into incidents of extra-judicial killings; declare the names of missing and illegally detained people, and or produce them before a court of law if they are accused.
The Government of Pakistan is responsible for these extra-judicial killings in Sindh and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, forced conversions of Sindhi Hindus. We call upon the Government of Pakistan to address governance issues; restore the law and order situation; allocate substantial resources for development; generate employment and improve the quality of life in Sindh.”
Sanai also asked the Pakistan Government to put an end to the violence and not to exploit Sindh resources and put a fair trade and equal distribution of resources policy to reduce the internal displacement of people and discourage Sindhis from living in their own land. The resolution also requested the international community to understand and resolve the rights and conditions of the Sindhis in Pakistan’s territory.
