Local parties protest in Badin against local Jirga system


BADIN: Sindhiani Tehreek (ST) & Awami Tehreek (AT) staged a demonstration against honor killing, ill and biased customs and atrocities here on Sunday.

The protest was led by ST President Marvi Gopang and senior leader Jakhro Nuhani, AT President Kamran Lakho and others. The protest march started from Kazia Canal bridge and concluded at Badin Press Club.

Addressing the gathering, the representatives of both the local parties said that the promotion of Jirga system (tribal courts) has failed to stop the inhumane behavior towards women and punish those who are responsible for it. They accused the government of inaction against these elements.

They said despite various protests, government and concerned departments were unable to take stern action against Jirga and feudal system in Sindh province.

They demanded a strict action against Jirga system for their inhumane and dreadful acts and practices.
