ANP President Sindh, Senator Shahi Syed Sunday said his party believed and engaged in the politics of principles and urged the nation to crush the mindset that promotes a culture of guns. "We are not competing against MQM, as we are practical followers of Bacha Khan and Ahmed Shah Abdali," Shahi Syed said while addressing a public rally here at Keamari. He said his party pursues the philosophy of non-violence as preached by Bacha Khan. "If we take up arms, it will negate the philosophy of Bacha Khan," he added. Shahi Syed appealed to the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) to stop subjecting Pakhtuns to discrimination, adding 'we had joined PPP for strengthening the democracy'. He paid tribute to the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry for the Supreme Court's judgments.
