Central leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi has lamented that the kids are dying of hunger and thirst in Thar but nobody cares.

“Over 150 children have dies in last two months due to unavailability of clean drinking water. “There would have a lot of hue and cry had this happened in any other area of the country,” he added while talking to journalists after concluding session of three-day annual Urs of Hazrat Shah Rukan Uddin Alam here on Tuesday.

He demanded the Sindh Government to provide basic amenities to the residents of Thar, saying anyone doing any good thing for Thar would always be remembered in good words by the residents of Thar.

He said that renowned saint Hazrat Bahauddin Zakariya Multani represented Soharwardi school of thought while Makhdoom Ameen Faheem’s family was also linked to the same spiritual school. “I congratulate Makhdoom Ameen Faheem’s son Makhdoom Jamiluz Zaman for being elected as MNA and I invite him to visit Multan on the next Urs of Hazrat Bahauddin Zakariya and lay wreaths on the graves of his forefathers,” he added.

The concluding session was chaired by Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi while Jamaat Ahle Sunnat head Allama Mazhar Saeed Kazmi was the special guest. Strict security arrangements were made on this occasion as heavy police contingents were deployed in and around the shrine. All the visitors were permitted entry after thorough body search.
