Washington DC: Jeay Sindh Freedom Movement (JSFM) has hailed the passage of a new US law in favour of Tibetan freedom and urged the passage of a similar American measure for the people of Sindh languishing under Pakistani military control.
The US Congress last week passed the Tibetan Policy and Support Act (TPSA) of 2020 and President Donald Trump formally signed it into law Monday. “The new US law for Tibet brings hope for the long-suffering people of Sindh in Pakistan,” said Zafar Sahito, Founder of Jeay Sindh Freedom Movement (JSFM).
“Just like Tibetans who have been suffering under Chinese occupation for seven decades, people of Sindh have also been brutalized by expansionist China & CCP’s closest ally Pakistan military for almost the same amount of time since 1947,” reiterated Zafar Sahito.
Zafar Sahito further accused Pakistan military of carrying out war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Sindhi people and has opposed Islamabad’s loot and plunder in Sindh. He said Sindh’s war crimes are similar to Beijing’s denial to Tibetans the right to sovereignty over their homeland. “Small wonder that Pakistan has long termed its relationship with China as higher than the Himalayas and deeper than the oceans, sweeter than honey and stronger than iron.”
He added that the US must censor Pakistan Army generals who are committing crimes against humanity in Sindh and seize their assets in the US. Sahito further pointed out that the family of former Pakistan Army General Asim Bajwa, who has the blood of thousands of Baloch patriots on his hands, acquired millions of dollars across businesses in the US.
“General Asim Bajwa is still Pakistan’s focal person in the multi-billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) that aims to take away Sindh’s ports, islands and natural resources from the local people,” said Zafar Sahito. He further explained that Pakistan Army’s brutalities in Sindh have worsened in recent years as Pakistan has given control of the key port of Karachi in Sindh to China.
Zafar Sahito pointed out Pakistan-China-Iran nexus threatens not only Tibetan and Sindhi people’s national survival but also undermines democracy and human rights all over the world. The new US law, passed by President Trump, had bipartisan support in both the Houses by Representatives led by James McGovern, Democrat, and Chris Smith, Republican, and in the Senate led by Senators Marco Rubio, Republican, and Ben Cardin, Democrat.
