Black Britons ruling us: Tehreek-e-Hazara leader

ISLAMABAD – Tehreek-e-Sooba Hazara leader Sardar Haider Zaman has once again demanded of the federal government to wake up of its slumber and pay due heed to the masses of Hazara for the formation of Hazara province.
He was addressing a press conference here on Tuesday organized by Tehreek-e-Hazara’s Capital chapter.

Flanked by senior Tehreek leaders including Gohar Ayub Khan, Sardar Yousuf, Mushtaq Ghani, Hafiz Sajjad Qamar, Abdul Razzaq Abbasi and Haider Zaman lambasted the apathy of the rulers towards the Hazara cause.

“Years ago, we voted against Britons and became a part of Pakistan through a historical referendum but nothing has changed yet, the only difference is that ‘black Britons’ have replaced white Britons,” he said referring to the submissive disposition of the ruling elites to follow Western dictation. “This government is of the rulers, from the rulers, by the rulers,” Zaman said. “The purpose of arranging a media briefing here is to convey our message to our ‘royal’ rulers who are blindfolded in the corridors of power. We urge them to grow out of their criminal apathy and pay due heed to 100 million people of Hazara,” he added.

Further deploring the ruling elites, the Quaid-e-Tehreek said, “Leaders of any great nation are fatherly figures to the masses but look at our so-called public representatives, they lead luxurious lives, they make billions of illegal money and are completely intoxicated in power.”

Citing the recent Caravan-e-Hazara that earned huge public support and reflected Tehreek-e-Hazara’s ever-growing popularity among the people of Hazara, Sardar Haider Zaman said that he failed to understand the motives behind the criminal silence of government towards Hazara issue when masses had sacrificed their lives for the cause.

“We have resources, we have well, and we have made sacrifices, what’s the logic of keeping us away from our legitimate demand? Hazarawals would be relieved manifolds if Hazara province is formed,” he added. Zaman criticised the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for replacing the pictures of Quaid-e-Azam with Asfandyar Wali at numerous government offices.


Tehreek-e-Hazara vows to place signboards at Kashmir and GB borders

ISLAMABAD- Central senior leader Tehreek-e-Hazara Gohar Ayub Khan says a signboard of Hazara province would be set up at Garhi Habibullah, a Tehsil that segregates Hazara with Azad Jammu Kashmir, while another signboard would be placed in Basham, another Tehsil that borders Hazara and Gilgit-Baltistan.
Masses have moved the local courts the other day with the applications to nominate Chief Minister KP Ameer Haier Khan Hoti as prime convict in April 12 killings. Last month, the victim families moved Supreme Court for suo moto action against the infamous incident.

“People want immediate justice, they moved local courts and they moved SC. Everybody knows it was this CM who had ordered the April 12 killings. The victims’ families are not ready to forgive him that’s why they refused to get compensation cheques,” Gohar Ayub Khan adds.

It is pertinent to mention here that people of Hazara deem it worthy not to buy rulers’ stance. They are least concerned if it takes a parliamentary amendment or an executive order, unanimous consensus or a new legislation for the Hazara province to surface on the world’s map. For them, the province of Hazara has come into formation and it requires no material or verbal evidence.

From Haripur to Kohistan, dozens of signboards welcome the visitors on behalf of Hazara province. The fact that no administrative machinery, local government or provincial regime can dare remove these signboards is itself a manifestation of the charged air that runs in Hazara region.

One such signboard placed at Ghazi, a Tehsil of District Haripur, is installed next to police check post. The police officials deputed at the picket say that they cannot remove the signboard on account of negative public fallout. “We can’t dare dislodge these hoardings because if we do so, people would set this picket ablaze,” one senior police official told.

Quaid-e-Tehreek-e-Hazara Sardar Haider Zaman asks in challenging tone, “Who would remove these boards? The Chief Minister Hoti whom the people deem as major culprit in April 12 killings? The one who had to flee from Abbottabad during his last visit?”
