Quote Of The Day

The head of a nationalist Sindhi movement, Qadir Magsi, on Pakistan's and Sindh's future:
The Punjabi elite treats us as a slave nation, and Sindh as an occupied territory. Benazir Bhutto was the last hope to keep Pakistan united. Now, this Pakistan must be broken apart.

Have you ever been to Bhutto's hometown of Larkana? It looks like something out of the Flinestone cartoons - all broken down and rubble.

Bhuttos did N O T H I N G for their Sindhi brothers. They did nothing for their hometown of Larkana. Aren't the Bhutto's embarassed ?

well to be fair, i think the article in question was pointing at the fact that BB, one way or another, kept sindhi aspirations on the national political stage. but yes, your point is completely valid.

Pakistan was made as a hope for all Muslims. Because they all believed that what they were deprived of in the sub-continent they could achieve or make for themselves in a separate nation.
So today we have Pakistan and Sindh wants to break away because it thinks it can provide better to itself when on its own.
Soon Karachi will ask for independence too.
The truth is if Pakistan can not survive like it is today and its people can not unite in the small land and space they have right now, there is less of a chance for all the provinces to exist when independent.

Wait, what is a Magsi doing heading a Sindhi nationalist movement? Shouldn't he be worried about liberating Baluchistan before the attention is moved to Sindh?

haha not all magsis are balochi dude. technically even the zardaris are descendants of balochi tribes...no one's accusing them of being anything but sindhi today, are they?
