They said Sindh has been constantly pushed through the wall since last 70 years and it’s natural resources, water, gas and islands are being forcibly and illegally occupied by the Centre which cannot be tolerated. They said young men are taken away from their homes in front of their sisters and mothers which can only be termed cruelty to create panic among their families and they have not yet been released since years.

They said that peaceful attendants of Sindh Sabha Long March were attacked by Ubauro police, women participants were not only chained but dragged and shifted to police stations which is inhuman act in a democratically elected government. They said cases were registered against Inam Abbasi and others which we strongly condemn and demanded withdrawal of concocted FIRs.

They also demanded relevant higher authorities, human rights bodies and other concerned officials to take notice of missing persons of Sindh or else, they added, their struggle will continue till their recovery.
