Rasool Bux Palijo was the Marxist leader, scholar, and human rights defender, author of over forty books, lawyer and founder of Awami Tehreek.

Leaders of various political organizations addressed the public meeting and paid homage to late leader.

President, Awami Tehreek, Lal Jarwar and others addressing the gathering said that Rasool Bux Palijo was the continuation of the great revolutionary genius of the world.

They said that under the leadership of Late Rasool Bux Palijo the brave women of Sindh fought against oppression, barbarism and martial-Laws from the platform of the Sindhyani Tahareek and courted arrests.

“Palijo brought the scientific knowledge of the revolutionary leaders to the villages in a simple and easy language. He was the wise leader of Sindh and Pakistan who spent his whole life fighting for the oppressed classes and nations of the world,” they said.

“Rasool Bux Palijo’s thoughts were a light for third world countries”, they said.

They said that the only solution to the economic and political crisis that Pakistan is facing today is to follow Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s secular principles and the 1940 resolution, and with this the country can move towards prosperity.

They said that the people of Sindh have rejected the digital census from the first day. “This census is completely aimed to turn Sindhi nation in to minority and is against the existence of Sindh.”

“The people of Sindh, Balochistan, Kashmir, Gilgit and Siraiki have rejected the digital census as an attack on national integrity, therefore, the results of this population census have no constitutional and legal status.”

They said that jobs in federal institutions should be given to all nationalities on an equal basis as the Senate seats are equal for all nations, instead of establishing a monopoly of one province.

They said that the Sindh High Court has imposed a ban on Jirgas and declared Jirgas as an insult to the country’s constitution, but the Sindh government is reluctant to follow the orders of the Sindh High Court. The Sindh Apex Committee has attacked the judiciary by empowering the Jirgai system and the tribal chiefs to settle tribal disputes.

The country has become isolated in the world due to the corruption and worst policies of the rulers, the lamented.

The leaders said that Pakistan’s foreign policy has never been made keeping in mind the welfare of the People of country.

“At present, life has become hell for women due to the incompetence of the Sindh government, as the women of Sindh have been left at the mercy of the tribal people,” they said.
