    Crackdown on Sindh dacoits in fortnight

    About time. I know from persoanl experience how these bandits have wreaked havoc on the people of upper Sindh and Balochistan, without any checks. Hopefully the government will treat these people as the bandits and terrorists they are, and deal with them with the full force of the laws.

    Crackdown on Sindh dacoits in fortnight


    The government will launch a massive crackdown against dacoits in four key districts of Sindh and adjoining areas of Balochistan within a fortnight. President General Pervez Musharraf took the decision on Monday when several district Nazims from Sukkur, Ghotki, Shikarpur and Jaccobabad complained about mushroom growth of 'dacoits' in several districts of Sindh. The president was consulting district Nazims from Sindh who met him for exchanging views and on the working of the lowest tier of democracy in Pakistan.

    "Interior Minister Moinuddin Haider will head the operation against dacoits and it will be spearheaded by law-enforcing agencies so that people in these districts live in peace and without the shadow of these law-breakers," ordered President Musharraf, who gave patient hearing to the complaints and requests of Nazims.

    When some Nazims highlighted the routes and influx of these dacoits from Balochistan, the president agreed that he would give similar orders for Balochistan as most of the dacoits are taking refuge outside Sindh and living in their hideouts. It is learnt that Interior Minister Haider will head this operation for which he would complete planning with the cooperation of all the agencies and law-enforcing departments within this week. Nazim Hyderabad Rafiquzzaman and Nazim Thattha Shafqat Shah Shirazi lodged complaints against police officers for not extending due cooperation to the elected representatives.

    It is in this context that the president said that police would be responsible to district Nazims for law and order functions. "I hope the elected people will not misuse police for their personal gains or flexing muscles against their opponents," said President Musharraf. Taking a vital decision, the president also accepted the self-interest serving demand of these Nazims to change the procedure of no-confidence vote. "Now any elected Nazim can be ousted through no-trust motion by a two-third majority," said a Nazim.

    It is provided in the law that a no-trust motion can be moved against any elected person after 6 months and a simple majority could uphold that no-confidence motion. This provision was posing a greater threat to the elected Nazims, though changing the law after its promulgation and election has not set a good example for strengthening such institutions. "Now the change has made the elected Nazims almost permanent in their full tenure, unless the opponents attract a support of two-third majority which in any case is extremely difficult," said an insider.

    It was an old demand of Nazims, though at this point of time the change would certainly help the incumbent people and serve their self-interest. The president also disclosed that funds would be provided to districts for developmental work in the provincial financial award to be announced shortly.

          That's what they will say.

            well back when PPP was in power, the looting, car jackings and all had the blessings of sindh interior minister.
            The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

              Back in the eighties, these dacoits used to hide in jungles in the interior Sind. The following years, most of the trees were chopped down, but the porblem still lingered on. We need to create a more stable political environment in order to clamp down on lawlessness. It appears, that everytime military is in power, these dacoits make a come back. Zia even thought about using gunships against these dacoits. Now it seems like the next generation of the dacoits have taken over.

                The important thing is that Sindhi police officers should be used to fight these bandits and the Punjabi and Pushtun trops should only be used as backup.

                If that doesn't happen, you will hear noises from Sindhi nationalists.

                BTW, why are their so few Sindhis in the Army?

                  Well, if they're serious about removing dacoits - why dont they go arrest Zulfiqar Jamote and Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi.Those two are responsible for Mohib Sheedi and 100's more like him.

                  But no one has the ballz to go through with that

                  We had dacoits hiding in our village back in the 80's when Zia was conducting his anti-Sindhi operation and we provided them shelter but that was only because Zia was out on a mission to kill Sindhis and not just dacoits.

                  Since then, we do not allow them to enter our areas - there are on and off incidents but usually they stay away and only go to places where the landlords are friendly.

                  New Jatoi - offcourse - has therefore become the home for dacoits in Sindh.

                    After shameless defeat, Saddam started pounding kurds to take revenge and show to all iraqi ppl that he is still their ruler.

                    In this humiliating time, Pakistani army is doing the same thing. They need distraction and action to show to the paki ppl that they have still the say atleast on poor pakis.
