LARKANA / JACOBABAD / MIRPURKHAS - For the sake of enforcing a complete shutter-down and wheel-jam strike on the call of subversive anti-Pakistan nationalist party Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz (JSMM), dozens of armed personnels stormed the interior Sindh markets and forced the poor shopkeepers to shutdown the markets at gun-point in many areas of interior Sindh on Friday against the killings of nationalist leader Qurban Khuhawar, Rooplo Cholyani and others. Many areas in interior Sindh including Larkana, Kamber-Shahdadkot, Shikarpur, Jacobabad, Kashmor-Kandhkot, Naudero, Ratodero, Mirokhan, Arzi Bhutto, Sijawal and other areas observed partial forced strike. Several small rallies and protest demonstrations carried out by a few dozen terrorists of anti-Pakistan party were observed in Larkana where protestors chanted Sindhi nationalist slogans.
JSMM workers and nationalist leaders gathered in Shahdadkot at the residence of Sirai Qurban Ali Khuhawar, where the funeral prayer was offered on Friday and he was laid to rest at his ancestral graveyard. During the funeral activities, heavy contingents of Rangers and police were deployed at various chowks and corners of Shahdadkot and Larkana cities. On the occasion, a large number of JSQM leaders during protest demonstrations set tyres on fire. Meanwhile in Mirpurkhas, about two-dozen persons who were forcing the shopkeepers to shut down their shops in morning were arrested by law enforcement agencies.
However no response was given in Mirpurkhas to the strike call of nationalist organisations. Most of the bazaars and markets remained open while rangers and police were patrolling the city to maintain law and order. Police personnel were deployed at main roads, chowks, sensitive areas and entry and exit points of the city to arrest the miscreants. Report received that in Digri and Tando Jan Mohammad towns, partial strike was observed and JSMM anti-Pakistan miscreants also damaged the glasses of various vehicles by pelting stones on them. These are the same people who didn't allow Swat immigrants to enter Sindh and have repeatedly given statements against the State of Pakistan and it's sovereignty.
