Deputy Convener of the Co-ordination Committee of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Dr Farooq Sattar has said that the peaceful protests against the prejudicial statement of the education minister of Sindh would continue as long as the Sindh Assembly did not pass the bill for the establishment of the Hyderabad University.
Addressing a big gathering at the Karachi Press Club Dr Sattar said, “If the bill for the establishment of the university is not introduced in the Sindh Assembly, the demonstrators would march towards the Sindh Assembly and force the so-called politicians, who are sowing the seeds of hatred, to establish the university.”
Dr Sattar said that the Bill for the establishment of the Hyderabad University should be passed by the Sindh Assembly if the conspiracies against the division of Sindh have to be defeated. He warned that the MQM would present the Bill in the Sindh Assembly if the PPP failed to do it.
A large number of people hailing from different walks of life, including women and students, took part in the demonstration at the Karachi Press Club to protest against the statement of the provincial education minister Pir Mazharul Haque.
Dr Sattar said that the literacy rate in the country was very low. The education minister should have said that many universities would be established in Sindh in order to dispel the darkness of ignorance. He said that the statement of Pir Mazharul Haque has revealed the real face of the PPP.
Speaking about the Peoples Local Government Act 2012 was being presented as the best law to the people but as soon as the MQM came out of government, it became a bad law.
Speaking on the occasion member of the Co-ordination Committee Waseem Aftab said that the intellectuals of Sindh should decide as to which political party had given sacrifices for the rights of the Sindh province. He said that the PPP claimed that the resources of Karachi belong to the entire Sindh, but the PPP did nothing for the progress of the city for the past five years.
Member of the Co-ordination Committee Ashfaq Mangi and Heer Soho also spoke on the occasion.
Deputy Conveners of the Co-ordination Committee Anis Ahmed Qaimkhani, Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and other members of the committee along with MNAs and MPAs were also present on the occasion.
