December 16, Gwadar Dharna, tragedy of history science and fiction the capital debates 2022

Mohammad Shafiq Bangash and Syed Athar Ali have complained in an email that "you did not write anything about December 16, we do not like to ignore the fall of East Pakistan and the tragedy of APS Peshawar". Readers' resentment must be written on these topics. Even though many friends wrote, the writer did not ignore these two incidents. We have the available history and information or general conditions. In this society, not everyone wants to hear or read anything but their own truth. No one likes the question. There is no dialogue. In short, every time we did, we did not learn from other events of the past.

"The tragedy of history is that instead of learning a lesson from it, we invite new tragedies, and when it does, we start mourning." Initial talks were held with the representatives of the participants, Maulana Hidayat-ur-Rehman, and others. Federal ministers were able to reach the sit-in after 31 days. Imagine the thousands of men and children who have been protesting in the coastal city of Gwadar in Balochistan for the last 32 days. For 29 days the so-called mainstream media did not take notice.

The first significant news of the sit-in came when Amir Sirajul Haq of Jamaat-e-Islami arrived for the address. The other news was just a single columnist, he was arrested in the coup case of Awami Workers Party President Yousuf Musti Khan. Called the mainstream, who is the media blasphemer? The mutiny case was registered against him for his speech at the Gwadar sit-in. Yousuf Musti Khan is a well known progressive politician. His political journey began with the KNP, the National Awami Party. This is the month and year when the National Awami Party was the largest party of progressives in this country.

This party was banned under Bhutto, NDP and now ANP are its continuation. The ANP is now a Pashtun nationalist party. After the ban on NEP, Hyderabad conspiracy case was made, this case was withdrawn by the military government of General Zia-ul-Haq and prisoners of Hyderabad conspiracy case were released. During the captivity, differences arose between the Pashtun and Baloch leaders. The story of these differences is true, but these differences became the basis of the separate political journey of the great leaders of the two nations.

Khan Abdul Wali Khan and his Pashtun friends started politics from the NDP platform. Mir Ghous Bakhsh Bizenjo founded the Pakistan National Party. Leading progressive leaders of Sindh, Seraiki, Wasib, Punjab and Balochistan accompanied him. Yusuf Musti Khan was also among them. He fought for the dignity of humanity, democracy and the supremacy of the constitution all his life. Still, despite his old age, he reached Gwadar from Karachi, where he addressed the sit-in. A mutiny case was registered and he was arrested.

Siraj-ul-Haq also addressed the sit-in. Has any case been registered? Find out the answer to this question will make it easier for you to understand why people in Gwadar and Balochistan say that "someone" wants to hand over the political management of Gwadar to Jamaat-e-Islami. The Gwadar sit-in is aimed at realizing the dreams of basic civil rights, political aspirations, peace, education, health and development, so as not to create difficulties for "it". For 29 days after the sit-in to clear the forest of check posts, with the end of drug trafficking and sale, the provincial government of Balochistan slept under a "double warm blanket".

One or two statements were made during this time, but the negotiating committee was set up when the news reached Quetta that the Prime Minister had taken notice of the Gwadar sit-in. The protesters and their sympathisers are of the opinion that in this city which has become a jungle of check posts, orders of someone else are followed. Tongues burn from the palate as we talk about who it is. That is why it is said that when a "signal" was given to settle the matter, a notice was served. Otherwise, does the provincial government not know that thousands of men and children have been protesting under the open sky since November 15? Excuse me, it was known, but does the government of Balochistan have the same powers as the deputy commissioner of any district of the other three provinces of the country?

If you find the answer to this question, it will be easier to understand the issues. Sorry, this is not a conspiracy theory, it is the bitterest fact. Otherwise, on a planet that has become a village with modernity, how is it possible that sit-ins and protests will continue in Gwadar from November 15 and the provincial government will remain unaware of it. Gwadar is a city similar to other border and coastal cities. Lots of secret agents, watching every news and counting. Those friends who ask why the development work in the city was not started with the construction and expansion of the port in Gwadar, their question is 100% correct.

Why did the builders of large and modern ports in the region ignore the need for a plan to manage the coastal city with modern facilities? Were they not aware of the needs, deprivations, problems and issues of the local population, from which the deterioration and distances were increasing with each passing day? Now it is being said that if the talks of the committee of federal ministers proceed satisfactorily, then the Chief Minister of Balochistan will also participate in the negotiation process.

Wow, that would be a miracle. That is the real tragedy here. Maulana Hidayat-ur-Rehman of Jamaat-e-Islami is of course the leader of the sit-in, but the participants of the sit-in are the same, rich in national political consciousness, that is why men and children have been sitting in sit-in for 31 days. If the sit-in is peaceful, it is the result of the political consciousness, patience and unconditional love of the fishing families for the peace activists. Who is scared? Those who think that if the 14 demands of the sit-in protesters are accepted, a lot of fog will disappear.

It is true that the first and foremost demand of the protesters is to stop the illegal fishing by trawlers. This illegal fishing has for centuries led to suicide attacks on jobs by boats, thousands of fishing families, but other demands include electricity, clean drinking water, the establishment of a modern hospital, and modernisation of the university. Demand for elimination of check posts, prevention of smuggling, eradication of extortion and provision of modern facilities in the city and employment of local people.
