SINDH- FROM RINKLE KUMARI TO MIGRATION OF HINDUS
AN ARTICLE BY VEENGAS
Have you ever been abandoned ?
Have you ever felt the trauma of
Being abandoned and forced immigrate to foreign land ?
You can’t feel of their emotions as you never been forced to immigrate
You never have been forced to give up right to live in your land
How could you feel as I feel if you are not abandoned?
Or forced to immigrate!
Why shall I detail my agony to somebody
Who had never been gone through the pain that I had to go through
You’ve never been with broken hearts
Who are abandoned, condemned, forced to immigrate & forced to survive heartbroken
Some day even the goddess of time will have some pity on us!
May this happen I would ask to exactly this “Have you been forced to immigrate?”
Sindh is that very land where you can expect anything from freedom of being free from living heartbroken. This land has every emotion!
Once again Sindh is going through the trauma of migration and heart-broken emotions of innocent indigenous inhabitants. Have we ever bothered to feel what Sindh have been going through ? May be our own pains are too much to divert our attention to others. Leave apart sympathizing we are not even feel the reason behind even to hear what the hell is going on with them!
I still remember my childhood when mom would speak of entire world of some sort of Global village for humanity but never missed to used that land on which we grew up from infancy to the adult , how come we could forget the natural bond that land!! The bond between the land and people are such which cannot cast off no matter how much hard one tries. But notwithstanding such time tasted laid out laws of nature something is indeed going on in some of our hearts who are bend upon speeding hostility for love.
I still lament of the fact that how we compromise promptly hatred for love or peace which has the potential of isolating them from the rest. But needless to say it is those people who are to suffer the most of this man-made isolation.
These are same hands that are making mess of Sindh. They believe they are indeed powerful and can indeed impose a change on us. Had any ever been told time spares none !!
We have been watching silently as indigenous inhabitants of Sindh viz Sindhi Hindus are being tormented. Why this have been happening ? What are the reasons behind it ? I had never ever denied that Sindhi Hindus (Although I don’t prefer to use the word “Sindhi Hindu”. They are the indigenous son of the soil then why they should be referred as Sindhi Hindus and not as just Sindhis) have been troubled and forced to pay Bhatta (Protection money to the local mafia). But despite this they choose to stay in their mother land expecting that such issue would pass by with the passage of time and above all with the hope that one should not abandon the land of their forefathers
As they have been facing each day with vigor what all off happened they have been migrating …Time is indeed ruthless as well as unpredictable! Hypocrisy & atrocities might now be practiced by majority but those practice it are indeed powerful who have been giving free hand to terrorize minorities in any possible form. There are not even questioned by rule of land as why such crimes are being perpetuated ? When such perpetuators of crimes roam free, the tormented even being a majority feel beleaguered. This is what been happening in Sindh. A meticulously planned game is being played in Sindh which might seem invisible to us may be we tend not to break our silence.
I have been writing in Daily Ibarat since the last three years that Hindus are being tormented and with time they might be forced to vacate sindh, not only this but Sindhi Hindus had to get out of their ever shrinking space and should stake their claim of ownership of Sindh. If house-owners helplessly gives up and prefers to migrate who will confront the perpetuators? They seem to be bit too ready to give up our claim !!
Nevertheless, In Sindh Hindus have been tormented by killings or by Kidnappings. The precedence of CHAK (Near Sharkarpur where 4 Hindu Doctors were shot dead in their clinic) is before us- Despite head of the state taking stern notice, killers were freed. Not only this had an high raking police officer confirm in anonymity of intense pressure to free the killers and force Hindus to migrate from Sindh.
One of the reason of deteriorating condition had been near pin drop silence of Political parties on Chak incident. Why this happened ? Sindhi Hindus have been forced to migrate yet non of the so called sindhi parties bother to break roza of their silence!! I fail to comprehend weather these parties belong to sindh or to somewhere else ?
Post Chak no mass migration was noticed among Hindus but then what the hell happened all of sudden that set cat among the pigeons !!!! In any case there had been dozen of cases involving Hindu Girls. Let us take the case of Rinkle Kumari where the girl begged to go with her parents from Lower courts to highest count on the land. Even CJ Pakistan at an occasion did clarify to Noved Shah (Her Kidnapper) that this case is clear cut that the girl wished to go with her mother.!!!!
Alas! From Rinkle kumari to Asha Kumari none of the political parties or any organization did ever bothered to take up her their case !!!
Almost all the political parties choose remain mute claiming Rinkle Issue of being a “Love Affair” Had they fought the case of Hindu Kidnapped with vigor it would had indeed added a new lease of live to an dormant Sindh. Surprisingly nobody bothered to question the verdict of CJ Pakistan why Rinkle & Asha were bluntly denied Justice ?
Question arises why did the sindh based parties backtracked? Whom they were trying to protect ??
In case the parties have been claiming that this is a mare case of three Girls and haven won’t fall apart if we don’t intervene then it is quite obvious that they do not have any feel of the days to come. Those who remain silent, are they not aware what the hell have been happening in sindh since the incidents of through Chak till that of Rinkle Kumari as what & why such games are being staged ?
When we have been writing that sindh should understand that such cases are not simple the mare cases of ad hoc killing and abduction, the sindh based parties not only remain silent mute spectators of the drama that was being unfolded but allowed all to happen.
Today when we are witnessing en mass migration of Hindus from Sindh, all off sudden they seem to wake up from slumber to raise hue & cry of Hindu migration and its effect of Sindh!!!.
Today the issue is not of condemning the stud silence of Sindhi parties but to take charge where these parties have made the mess with the view that they come to their senses. But despite all our clarion call these parties refuse to mend their laid out ways even from the prospective of Human Rights leave apart agony of Sindh from Chak to Rinkle kumari cases.
Sindh nationalist no more have the spine or fire power that we had noticed in the past and more importantly they show neither promise nor and potential to take up the challenge that Sindh is up to.
They have indeed limited themselves of protest which hardly lasts couple of days before returning to their self imposed dormancy. Not to forget the ruling party which never bothered to even pull up its minister as on basis he is keeping Hindu girls in his custody ?
What are the reasons of such mass migration of Hindus from Sindh ?
I see two reasons one is to destroy Sind’s economy and other is to damage Sindhi Vote bank. If Hindus (Sindh’s Sindhi Business community) migrate Sind’s hold on Market in sindh would eventually suffer . If Hindus migrate Sindhi votes too would get a beating for sure and their majority would be hit pretty badly.
If we haven’t forgotten than let us remember 2010-11 when sindhi vote-bank took a bodyblow durning to successive Floods which led to migration of Sindhis within Sindh now with Hindu Migration form Sindh situation is obviously expected to get worse !!
Behind the Curtin there are no dearth of conspiracy which want to want sindh to loose its majority to the migrated ones – a process which is indeed running in its full swing!!
Coincidently the issues no matter how insignificant they seem but enough to bring havoc for sindhis in days to come. This is the reason why we need to get to the bottom of such issues
Alas! Sindhis could understand that migration of Hindus is not a mare issue for Hindus but is linked with the future of Sindh in days to come . “Fear for that day you Sindhis when we will have contest only for the reserved seats in your Sindh aka present day Hindu Sindhis”
But millon dollar question is how come Hindus forget what they have been taught in GITA!! Where soul is dedicated karma (service) . One should not bother about end result. Today Sindh is in pains where no body seem to be secure and under such circumstances if we migrate believing that our lives are not same, had anybody ever comprehend as what would be the condition of Sindh in days to come ??
We all have failed to see Sindh its eyes ?
Although there no denying of the fact that migration is painful under any circumstances but none the less in such an blind pursuit are we now leaving helpless & condemned ?
