Fear of data manipulation to turn Sindhi to minority in census: Sindhi Sangat Sindh
Hyderabad: February 5, 2017. (PCP) Sindhi Sangat Sindh fears that Sindhi people may be converted into a minority on their own soil through tampering with the head count and manipulating data. Sindhi Sangat Sindh demands to count separately aliens illegally living in Sindh.
In an issued statement on Sunday, central chairman of the Sindhi Sangat Sindh Mansoor Khaskheli has said that after a wide gape of almost 19 years and after the intervention of Supreme Court sixth census will be hold in on 15 March 2017, government have allocated RS. 14.5 billion And 200000 army men have deployed to conduct census, more than forty lack aliens are illegally residing in Sindh while somehow illegal immigrants Bangladeshi, Irani, Afghani, Indian, Burmese have got fake CNIC but they are not Pakistani citizens because they have violated citizenship act of 1951.
Sindhi Sangat Sindh demands fair and transparent census to be held in March. Federal government must address the concern of Sindh because the transparency and eligibility of the census process is our serious concerns. We have fear that Sindhi people may be converted into a minority on their own soil through tampering with the head count and manipulating data.
Fundamental reservations concerned the results of the 1998 census, in which the population of Sindh was perceived as having been shown as less than the actual number, depriving the province of its due share in the NFC award and other fiscal grants and aid. The federal and Sindh governments should review the concerns of the majority of the province’s population. They should take serious notes of the demand that millions of economic refugees from the country’s north and its trouble spots be registered as part of Sindh’s population separately, in a non-resident category.
This is standard practice in many developed countries. Meanwhile, illegal immigrants should be counted as ‘aliens’ without citizenship or permanent residency rights. In this connection, the National Database Registration Authority must immediately cancel the illegal identity cards issued to over 1.3 million aliens and an apart from this, central chairman of the Sindhi Sangat Sindh Mansoor Khaskheli appealed to the people living in Sindh, regardless of what language they spoke, to fill in the census form in Sindhi as their first language so that Sindh’s rights could be safeguarded because resources, including jobs and development funds, were distributed on the basis of the census.
