Movements against Islamists in Sindh, Pakistan

Yesterday Sindh province of Pakistan observed a massive outpour against the religious extremism, victimizing Hindus and humiliating the corpse of a Hindu Bhil. A few days ago some Islamists dug the grave of a Hindu, Bhuro Bhil, and thrown it away since he was a Hindu and according to them had not right to be buried.

Bhils are one of the oldest clans of the human society associated with the Indus Civilization, the centre of which is Sindh province of Pakistan.

Jeay Sindh Qomi Mahaz (JSQM), banned Jeay Sindh Mutahida Mahaz (JSMM), and some civil society forums that strive for the indigenous sovereignty and movement for self-determination mostly organized the protests yesterday.  

Sindh Taraqipasand Party (STP), Qomi Awami Tahreek (QAT) Sindh National Movement (SNM), Jeay Sindh Mahaz (JSM) civil society forums, and the pro-people secular role of Sindhi media has ruled the tide of social movements in Sindh in last a few days.

The movement forced the Mullahs of Pangrio town for bowing down. They now have asked Superintend of Police, Badin district of Sindh to mediate between Bhil family and the extremists since the Mullahs want an escape through offer apology to the Bhil family and paying an amount of  rupees two million.

On the other hand, daily Sindh Express, a vernacular newspaper from Sindh, has reported that the barbaric incident happened due to land interests. Meanwhile, JSQM activists have said in their speeches according to the newspapers that settler ethnic Punjabi Feudal Lords of Badin district instigated the Mullahs to commit the crime, and hence JSQM believed that the happening was state sponsored.
