BADIN             -          A large number of workers of Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (JSQM)-Basheer Khan group from Sujawal district have announced to quit the party and vowed to live as patriotic Pakistanis in future.

Addressing a crowded press conference at Malki Press Club in Thatta on Saturday as many as 50 leaders and activists, associated with JSQM-B, belonging to various parts of Sujawal district, announced  parting of their ways with the Sindh’s nationalist party.

Sufi Mohammad Hashim Sindhi, Ghulam Hussain Sindhi, Adam Khan, Akram Shah and others informed the journalists that they had become sick of politics of separatism and were exploited and misguided by their leaders, who according to them, were involved in anti-state activities.

They alleged that top brass of the party, instead of thinking for the bright future of people of Sindh, was only using them for their petty vested interests.

They said now they had decided to disassociate themselves from the party since they had realised that such politics were nothing, but an illusion, adding that now they would work for the integrity and welfare of Pakistan. “We sincerely advise the misguided people of Sindh to shun such politics which are against the very existence of Pakistan and based on hatred and division,” they said.

Earlier, the ex-JSQM workers took out rally, holding national flags in their hands.

It is pertinent to mention here that almost all wings of the ‘Jeay Sindh’, the party launched by late G.M Syed, have almost ceased to exist in number of districts of the province, including Badin, Tando Mohammad, Sujawal Thatta and Tharparkar.
