Sindh: World Sindhi Congress Press Release on the Murder of Sardar Akbar Bugti
Below is a press release from WCS:
World Sindhi Congress – Sindhi Unity Forum expresses feeling of shock & horror at the cold-blooded murder of Sardar Akbar Bugti, a great political leader, founding father of Pakistan and compatriot of Quaide-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah. It is a ‘Black Day’ for Pakistan, and further destabilises the unstable political situation, pushing the country towards civil war.
This brutal and heinous act by the military dictator and undemocratic & unconstitutional regime, is further evidence that the military forces should never get involved in the political affairs, and remain focused on their basic role of defending the borders form the external threats rather than killing their own people. But it is obvious that military general have not learned from their blunders of Bangladesh, and political assassinations of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and other previous military fiascos.
WSC strongly feels that the international community and UN should not remain silent and refer the matter to International Criminal Court as a war crime to ensure proper justice and prevent such actions against civilians by military forces in future.
WSC expresses heartfelt condolences to the family and extends sympathy and support to the Baluch nation, on the sad loss of their beloved father and great leader, ‘May GOD rest his soul in peace in heavens’.
