Karachi: Hundred of people staged a demonstration on Sunday at Korangi No 5 led by Mohajir Sooba Tehreek, gathering support for a Mohajir province. Movement’s president, Syed Zahid Hussain addressed the rally via telephone from Dubai, sources informed.
The movement has also organized several rallies earlier in support of Mohajir Sooba and this was the 5th rally of its kind.
Addressing the rally, President Mohajir Sooba Tehreek Syed Zahid Hussain and several other speakers said that Mohajir always called them Sindhis but the Sindhis never embraced us and called us refugees. Now the migrants are out on practical grounds in order to safeguard their identity.
He added that they would hold weekly rallies in various parts of the city from now onwards until their demand was met. He urged the government to immediately announce the creation of a Mohajir province.
He also urged MQM Chief Altaf Hussain to support the call for Mohaji Sooba and be a part of the movement that will safeguard the identity of Mohajirs.
