Act of Burying Five women alive in Balochistan

Mr Altaf Hussain, founder and leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) severely condemned the act of burying 5 women alive in Naseerabad District of Balochistan and termed it a brazen degradation of humanity. He said in his statement issued from London that while the world having advanced in science and technology is respecting humanity it is a cause of distress that in this advanced age people in some areas of my country are forced to live in dark ages and they are being victimised on the rubrics of powerful medieval and archaic traditions. He said that as the girls were buried alive on their birth in the Stone Age before the birth of Islam, women and girls in certain areas of Pakistan are faced with the similar barbarism and oppression; they are murdered in the garb of “Karo-Kari” and “Honour Killings”.

Mr Altaf Hussain reiterating his statement that burying 5 women alive under the guise of respecting tradition is in fact, a naked barbarism against women and a degradation of humanity which deserves severest condemnation.

Difference Between Political Parties And Movements

The prime aim and purpose of a political party revolves round its personal interests and in the achievement of power; where as a movement is totally different as regards its aims and purpose. The gaining of power is never the sole aim of a movement because a movement is launched for the acquisition of the collective rights of its peoples and the achievement and aim of a movement is to succeed in the attainment of its purpose and aim. In the joining of political parties personal interests and selfish motives take priority. There are egocentric desires to become MPA’s & MNA’s, to gain popularity and to be called a leader is each individual’s uppermost craving. On the contrary, when an individual associates himself with a Movement his desires, aspirations and attitudes are totally different. The individuals who join a movement have no personal aims and goals because their attitudes are such that they have no desire to gain from the Movement but to give. They willingly give quality time, they sacrifice their wants, desires and self-interests for the benefit of the movement and their foremost goal lies in the achievement of the collective rights of its people and in the promotion of the collective interests, purpose, mission and vision of the movement and not of the self. In a Movement, the basis of merit is not the social status and wealth but it is the attitude and practical performance.

Our movement is an ideological Movement; our struggle is for the collective good and to bring about a positive change in the country. If we are to challenge the medieval feudal system then we must strengthen our ideological base and adopt a positive attitude. Every member must become a walking image of civilised and cultured manner; our way of talking should create a positive impact on everyone. We must always remember the basic aim of joining the Movement? What is the mission and cause of our Movement? When one puts the collective aims aside and give their personal interests priority then he or she slowly but surely moves away from the ideology. They become ideologically weak and in difficult times they quickly change their loyalties and leave the Movement to safeguard their personal interests. When on 19 June 1992 an army operation was launched against our Movement then those who were in the race of personal interests, changed their loyalties – however, the ideologically strong workers remained steadfast, faced the hardship and difficult times, were incarcerated, went into hiding and even did not hesitate to sacrifice their lives for the Movement. To achieve the goals of the Movement it is essential that all the members of the Movement must be ideologically strong, keep improving their character and actions, acquire knowledge, follow the organisational policies and rules of discipline, carry out self-accountability instead of pointing the finger at others.
Our Movement and struggle is for the right of common people and humanity. This is not for personal interests but for collective goals. If we give priority to personal interests over collective goals then we cannot remain steadfast in testing times. Therefore, all the members of the Movement should be ideologically strong and be prepared to improve their character and etiquettes so as to further the message of the Movement and bring about positive change in the current medieval system of the country.
