Address to Hyderabad District Bar Association (HDBA)

Chairman of Sindh Tarraqi Passand Party (STPP) Dr Qadir Magsi has said that despite reinstatement of Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry, an ideal judiciary has not been formed but hopes are still high that verdicts would not be influenced on the basis of corruption and political influence. Addressing members of the Hyderabad District Bar Association (HDBA) on Tuesday, he said that people believed that the present judiciary would not succumb to any pressure. Slavery was something that could not be accepted even if chains were made of gold, he said, adding that the federation of Pakistan would have to recognise historic identity of Sindh. He said that the STPP demanded autonomy, parity and sovereignty over natural resources, but outlaws were made governor and ministers and the president, prime minister, chief minister and home minister paid homage to them. He asked the legal fraternity for support to the cause of Sindh and added that the STPP wanted to create a new Sindh and set up the state on modern lines. He said that advocates had always played a major role in struggles of the world, changing the course of history. Repeating STP’s stance over issues related to Sindh, he paid tributes to advocates for their role in restoration of the deposed judges. He said that had G.M. Syed and the then leadership of the Hur Moement raised slogan of liberation of Sindh with Allah Bux Soomro, today people of the province would have their rights. He said that the present federation denied 1940 Resolution that formed basis of this state. He said that Punjab followed the rule of parity until Bengalis were part of Pakistan, but when they got and separated, Punjab raised the issue of distribution based on population to establish its monopoly. He said that the oppressed nations were subjected to atrocities. He said that the Senate was a weak institution in Pakistan, though multi-nation states always had powerful Senates. He demanded parity for Sindh in all state institutions, including the apex court which he said did not have one Sindhi judge while the Sindh High Court had only five judges. He called for national status for Sindhi language besides three other languages and urged the government to respect the rights of Sindh and its language.
