KARACHI- After the passage of a resolution in the National Assembly in support of a Seraiki province, the demands for Hazara and Muhajir provinces are gaining momentum.
Recently, the new graffiti for the creation of Muhajir Province has appeared in several areas of the metropolis and big hoardings have been installed in Gulshan Iqbal and Gulistan-e-Johar areas.
The MST has raised a voice against what it calls discrimination against the Muhajir Community in Sindh Province. In their press statements they said that those who sacrificed their lives and land for the creation of Pakistan in 1947 have been ill-treated and discriminated in matters of government jobs and admissions in educational institutions.
The voice for Muhajir province was first raised in the metropolis during the ethnic clash in Qasba Colony last year when the residents of the area expressed their no confidence in Sindh Government to protect them from the miscreants.
Whether raising voice for a Muhajir province is a conspiracy or a genuine demand, can only be decided by the common people who can owe or reject the idea. The issue of Muhajir province will lead the next general elections in Karachi and Hyderabad and it will be difficult for the political and religious parties to avoid the wishes of the masses.
