    Muslim community in Agra unhappy about Mohajirs' plight

    we cant let down mojahirs who went to pakistan in the hope of succefully integrated
    in pakistan. mojahirs are brain behind lot of
    the acheivements in pakistan. they contributed to pakistan more than their share. sindgh provides 70% of pakistan's
    income because of mohajirs . why they should
    treated differently eventhough they are muslims?

    Muslim community in Agra unhappy about Mohajirs' plight

    Monday, July 9, 2001 (Agra):

    The Muslim community of Agra still maintains close ties with its relatives and friends in Pakistan. They take great pride that Altaf Hussain, the self-exiled leader of the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM), hails from Agra. The MQM represents the Mohajirs in Pakistan. However, among the Muslim community in Agra, there is unhappiness that their people continue to be oppressed across the fence. They want to Prime Minister Vajpayee to raise the matter with President Musharraf, himself a Mohajir, when both countries are talking peace.

    Nayee Basti, unlike its name, is one of the oldest Muslim mohallahs in the city. In the early years following Partition, hundreds of households had moved from this mohallah to Pakistan. These included the family of Altaf Hussain.

    The MQM was formed in 1984 by the Mohajirs--the Urdu-speaking Muslims of northern and central India who settled in Karachi after Partition to fight growing discrimination by the ethnic Sindhis and the powerful Punjabi elite who still dominate the country.

    Most of the Muslims in the city have some family across the border, mainly in Karachi. Whenever ethnic violence rocks Karachi, there is concern for the safety of their relatives, which is why for Muslims in Agra, the struggle of the Mohajirs can never be a Pakistani issue alone.

    Although very few remember the young Altaf who once lived in Agra, today every man here supports his demand--equal rights to the Mohajirs or independence from Pakistan, which they had helped create.

    Haji Maqsood Ullah, Municipal Corporator, Nayee Basti, Agra, said, "There is a great deal of resentment here because those who went to Pakistan received neither love nor respect. We hear time and again of the killings of Mohajirs by masked gunmen even inside mosques as they are praying. We feel angry and sad but can do nothing because they are Pakistanis.

    After more than 50 years, the Mohajirs who left for the land of the pure are still struggling to be accepted as Pakistanis, while the Muslim community which stayed behind in Agra--the land of their birth, also finds itself on the defensive in a state where caste and community now define political and social boundaries.

    The fact that Pakistan's President, Chief Executive, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, Chief of Army Staff, and a whole bunch of top brass in Military, Judiciary, and Bureacracy are technically 'mohajirs', really makes me appreciate the suffering of the mohajirs in Pakistan.

    The Muslim Community of Agra will be well-advised to send a delegation to Pakistan, to report on human rights violations against mohajirs so this matter can be raised in the United Nations.

    Jeez, Some ppl!

            Yes, and if these killings had taken place in India, Haji saab would have gone after the culprits with his laathi. Too abd, they are in Pakistan and Haji saab is unable to do anything. Tsk tsk. I really feel sorry for them.

                Hilarious.
                Rvikz you actually believe this crap.
                All the mohajirs and not treated badly or pro MQM, more likely most of the Mohajirs are anti-MQM.
                They have a few problems yes, but that is pakistan's internal matter.

                    well indian muslims are curious about the mohajir problem in pakistan but most of them are fed on the wrong propaganda by indian media which does not show the correct picture
                    yes what better eg do you want than this that mr musharraff is also a muhajir.
