Raising voice for more provinces not treason, says MQM-P

This was said while condemning remarks of Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah against those talking about the division of Sindh.

On Tuesday, CM Shah while winding up debate on the budget 2018-19 in the Sindh Assembly said that he curses those who talk about the division of Sindh. “I make it clear that these people should get such notions out of their heads.”

“The speech of CM Murad Ali Shah against those people who are talking about a separate province is hateful, shameful and condemnable,” MQM-P leader Faisal Subzwari told a press conference at the party’s temporary headquarters in Bahadurabad.

He said that Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari himself raised voice for the creation of the South Punjab province. “Is Murad Ali Shah’s curse only for us or is he also cursing Bilawal [for demanding a new province],” he asked.

He said Shah never cursed those who were openly talking about the disintegration of Pakistan by making ‘Sindhudesh’.
