KARACHI: General Secretary Muhajir Rabita Committee, Mohammad Arshad Siddiqui has demanded a separate province for Mohajirs to solve their problems, particularly the law and order situation.

Addressing a press conference at Karachi Press Club (KPC), here on Tuesday, Siddiqui said establishing new provinces is necessary for a prosperous future of the country. He said that due to lack of governance in Karachi, mismanagement is at peak and it has become imperative to establish a new province to ensure better governance.

He further said that people of Muhajir community were being abducted and five to 10 of them were being killed on daily basis. He termed the killings as “genocide of Muhajir people”. Chief Minister Sindh and authorities concerned are also silent over the genocide of Mohajirs, he regretted.

He urged punishment to the culprits involved in these killings and safety to innocent citizens. He further said that it didn’t come under criteria of treason and the demand for a separate province was just for Urdu speaking people of Karachi who are in majority in the city.

He gave several examples of neighbouring and developing countries where the number of provinces is much higher than Pakistan, including Afghanistan. Moreover, he urged Prime Minister Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif and President Mamnoon Hussain to announce making of a separate province.
