WASHINGTON: - The Sindhi Association Of North America (SANA) has called for restoration of judiciary to pre-emergency position, impeachment of President Pervez Musharraf for violating the Constitution and for ending the "unprincipled" PPP coalition with MQM in Sindh. At its 24th annual convention in Dallas, Texas, SANA adopted a number of resolutions, including demands for an independent probe into the assassination of PPP chairperson Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and maximum provincial autonomy to the federating units in Pakistan according to the spirit of the 1940 Lahore Resolution, which formed the basis for the demand for Pakistan . In other resolutions SANA called for giving Punjabi, Sindhi, Siraiki, Pushto and Balochi national language status in Pakistan, an end to demolition of old villages in and around Karachi, an immediate stop to the efforts to bring in demographic changes in Sindh and the rightful share of Sindhis in all economic and employment opportunities. The SANA general body called upon the government to stop any plans to build mega dams on Indus River system and end work on the Greater Thal Canal, ensure just distribution of resources, end of military role in civilian affairs and drastically cut the military expenditure, accord full protection to minorities and women, free the victims of enforced disappearances and hold an impartial enquiry into May 12, 2007 Karachi massacre. SANA demanded that military operation must immediately be called off and cases should be registered against the people responsible for atrocities in the province and murder of veteran leader Akbar Bugti. SANA also called for probe into the murder of Murtaza Bhutto. On the judges issue, the resolution said that a lot of valuable time and energies of the elected government that should have otherwise been spent on improving law and order, controlling the ever-increasing inflation, and creating job opportunities are instead being diverted towards the issue of restoration of unconstitutionally removed judiciary at the hands of a dictator. It demanded that the issue be resolved immediately and judges removed through an illegal order should be restored without delay to pre-emergency position of November 3, 2007. On President Musharraf, the resolution said, "The present government system in Pakistan can not be called a democracy as long as a former general continues to occupy the presidency illegally and unconstitutionally. It is time that the Ex-general is dislodged and made to face the law for the violation of the Constitution and other unlawful and criminal acts against the state and the people."
