Greetings! I’m an engineering graduate, a green-blooded Pakistani and a registered voter. I’ve been keeping myself quiet for a long time. Of course, I didn’t want anything to happen to me or my parents. At first, I thought: ‘Maybe the timing is not right.’ But I realize now that there is no correct time to oppose violence and corruption. The time is always NOW. Because along with millions of Sindhis, I’ve come to realize that opposing you is no longer a political decision. It is a moral one.
I have watched you walking on the red carpet, while people of Sindh were getting vilified in the lines for so called Watan Card. I’ve heard that your horses eat dry fruits and I’ve seen kids dying out of hunger in Thar. I’ve heard you joyfully encouraging corruption to ‘pay the legal fees’ of those who commit violence on your behalf. You silently did corruption when you were president and now I’ve seen you gleefully telling stories of “Saving the democracy” and “Developing Sindh” and still shamelessly claiming ‘Pakistan Khappay.’
Over the last ten years, nothing has changed in Sindh. Our Education system sucks, 2/3 children are out of schools and probably there must be a reason you don’t talk about education in your speeches rather than “Saving the Democracy” so called democracy but anarchy it is. People are dying out of hunger, fathers are committing suicides, mothers are poisoning their kids because they can’t afford food anymore. Graduates are burning their degrees. There are no quality medical facilities, we don’t have enough hospitals. I am a common man, Sir. I walk on the streets and I have conducted extensive interviews with hundreds of students, farmers, and officers, chosen at random and I can confirm they’re tired of your dirty politics.
You’re no longer a politician in their eyes but a Warlord that has sabotaged the region.
Those of us who have been paying attention will not allow you to rebrand yourself. Stop using Bhutto’s name. You are not a ‘victim’ of anything that happened to Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and his family, but you’ve joyfully en-flamed his slogan for years. You are a man who has encouraged corruption and violence in the pursuit of personal power. And though your words will no doubt change over the next few months but you will always remain who you are.
A Logical Pakistani
