Sindh’s PPP government has acted upon 3-pronged punitive measures against the peaceful and democratic Labbaik Ya Hussain (AS) Long March of Shia Muslims that began from Shikarpur on a call from Heirs of the Shikarpur’s Martyrs Committee and reaches near Karachi now on Tuesday evening.


On the one hand, Sindh Government’s banks cheques for compensatory amounts payments to the injured and the heirs of martyrs were bounced, according to an Urdu daily. And on the other hand, Sindh Government banned protest rallies in Karachi where the Shia Long March protestors are going to stage a sit-in outside CM House.

The third aspect of the government’s punitive measures is propaganda against the peaceful protest o Shia Muslims. After talks between senior minister Nisar Khuhro and Heirs of the Martyrs Committee failed, Shehla Raza, deputy speaker Sindh Assembly issued anti-protest statements to media.

She misled reporters that Sindh Government accepted all demands of the Long March participants but fact remains that so far no charter of demand was formally sought by the government nor provided by the Committee. She herself is a Shia but she preferred party government to legitimate Shia demands.

The Committee of Shikarpur’s Martyrs Heirs and their supporters have two sets of demands. The heirs charter of demands contain 14 demands. And another set of joint demands by anti-takfiri allies and supporters of the Long March carry other demands.

This is historic Shia Long March. The Committee of Heirs of Martyrs of Shikarpur Massacre had to resort to protest strike and long march due to government’s inaction against the takfiri terrorists who masterminded and abetted suicide bombing during Shia Friday prayer in Syed-ush-Shohada mosque/Karbala Moalla Imam Bargah situated in Lakhi Dar area in Shikarpur. More than 72 Shia Muslims were martyred due to suicide bombing by Deobandi takfiri terrorist there.
