Peaceful protests in Sindh met with violent repression by Pak intelligence agencies: JSFM chief

Jeay Sindh Freedom Movement (JSFM), a political party demanding a separate homeland for ethnic Sindhis, said on Monday that Pakistani intelligence agencies are using violent and repressive tactics to suppress their peaceful protest.

The joint statement issued by JSFM chairman Sohail Abro and other leaders highlights concerns regarding the political turmoil and conflict in Sindh.

The statement accuses the authorities of resorting to violence and human rights violations, citing the recent incident involving the killing of Shaheed Hidayat Lohar in Larkana.

According to the statement, several individuals, including Taj Joyo, Sarang Joyo, Sohni Joyo and lawyer Mohib Azad, were injured during the clashes. Additionally, Sasai Lohar, Surath Lohar, and several political workers were reportedly arrested, with false FIRs allegedly filed against them.

The statement draws parallels with the situation in Balochistan and calls for Sindhi people to adopt a similar stance in their struggle for autonomy. It suggests that continued oppression could potentially lead to the creation of a separate state, akin to Bangladesh.

The leaders also appealed to international organizations such as the United Nations, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International to intervene and address the alleged violations of human rights by the Pakistani state.
