Movement for Independence of Sindh i.e. Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz (JSMM) protests controversial China-Pak Economic Corridor (CPEC) plan across Sindh province of Pakistan and Germany. In recent months after a heavy crackdown by LeAs to crush any opposition to CPEC plan from indigenous people of Sindhi and Baloch nations, Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz (JSMM) announced Sindh wide protests to condemn and oppose the construction of CPEC mega-project plan calling it a nefarious plan to cleanse indigenous Sindhi nation from the globe of the Eath. Today, protest demos, rallies, sit-ins were observed across Sindh and Germany to condemn the CPEC plan. Leadership of JSMM based in Germany led by JSMM Chairman Shafi Muhammad Burfat protested in Frankfort, Germany while JSMM activists took out massive protest demos, rallies and sit-ins in Karachi, Sakrand, Shahdadkot, Badani, Talhar, Bulri Shah Kareem, Mirpur Bathoro, Mirpur Mathelo, Kotri, Badin, Badah, Larkana, Ghotki, Daulatpur, Mehar, Pithoro, Mithi, Khan Waahan, Naseerabad and other cities and towns of the Sindh amid crackdown and clashes with the Pakistani LeAs. JSMM demos and rallies were stopped and baton charged by Police and Rangers forces at Khan Waahan, Peer Wasan, Sakrand, Mehar, Daulatpur, Moen jo Daro, Thari Mirwah, Mehrabpur cities and several activists including Governer Jatoi, Daarhon Rind, Wali Muhammad Rind, Farman Ali, Yaseen Mallah, Zuhaib Sindhi, Nazeer Bughio, Maeraj Magsi, Sarmad Magsi, Zohaib Magsi were taken in custody and were booked with several others in the charged with treason. Till final reports, LeAs conducted more raids on the houses of JSMM activists in different cities of Sindh.

In a detailed statement issued by JSMM Chairman Shafi Muhammad Burfat stating his party’s stance on CPEC, he briefly described the outcomes and his reservations over CPEC calling it strategic Military Aggression of China over the South Asian region, the stimulant of endless political-economic unrest, military tensions and strategic confrontations in South Asia.

He further stated: China-Pak Economic Corridor in its essence is such an economic, political, military and strategic nexus of China and Punjab which will bring up very dangerous results for the entire region and world. China, with the help of Pakistan, intends to extend its economic political and military dominance over the Sindhi (Arabian) sea, rather, it intends to hold and supervise the entire international trade encompassing this oceanic trade route, which includes the trade of the European, African and Arab world. It’s more a strategy of the economic and military dominance of China in the name of economic development, which on one side she has adopted in South and East China Oceanic regions and extending it from Kashgar to Gwadar on the other side. Now China is adopting an aggressive strategy to work on the plan in South Asian region, which is too condemned internationally. Punjab’s political-military think tank and military establishment have realized the truth that it holds no more reliable resources and power to hold its colonies i.e. Sindh and Baluchistan because their independence movements are rapidly gaining roots in their territories and international recognition. Thus Punjab, being a landlocked nation, who has become too weak in its political and military power to overcome the national freedom movements of the Sindhi and Baloch oppressed nations, needs not only the resources but lands and seas of the Sindh and Baluchistan because a country whose military and political might has collapsed and economy has worsened, making it a failed state has triggered its establishment (political and military think tank) to extend its hand towards China to attain more military and monetary power in the cover of FDI as monetary as well as military assistance to be able to hold its direct military occupation and aggression over oppressed nations through barbaric, fascist bloodshed and genocide. And It has already started, Pakistani fascist military and its intelligence agency ISI have intensified worst military operation of history against the people of Balochistan and Sindh. They have been raiding the houses of Sindhi people, whisking away every person whom they fear of resisting their plans, bombarding the villages and towns in Baluchistan, abducting political activists and commons, torturing them in military torture cells and extra-judicially killing them. Hundreds of Sindhi political activists and commons have been abducted in recent weeks including, intellectuals, journalists, writers, human rights activists, teachers, laborers, students etc.

In this perspective Chinese political role is totally imperial and against the interests of the oppressed nations. It will be a great mistake and ill sightedness of Chinese economists that they are shipping their capital on such a cargo which is already drowning in the sea of extinction and which has to throw its arms in front of the political resistance of Sindhi and Baloch nations just like it did in Bengal (East Pakistan) in 1971 followed by a disgusting expulsion. What will happen of the Chinese capital then? And what will happen to its moral and national reputation by becoming the partner to the crime of occupation and aggression with the fascist, theocratic state of Pakistan? Today or later Chinese economists and military strategists must have to think of it because Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz (JSMM) and Sindhi people are raising voice against the Chinese plan of aggression and occupation over the lands and seas of the oppressed nations, on both regional political grounds as well as international diplomatic forums.

The prime function of CPEC is to import the bulk of crude substances from Arab, Central Asian and African countries which will pass through the Arabian Sea and terrestrial logistic route of Gwadar and Karachi ports heading towards China through Kashgar. It’s to remember that Karachi is situated a 12 km away from the international European oceanic trade route; thus the Chinese-backed Pakistani supervision of this route will obviously result in the endless military as well as political confrontation by pushing India into an economic stress through armed interruption of the route by Pakistan. This confrontation will only end up in the devastation of Pakistan.

Therefore, China-Pak Economic corridor and Chinese economic military dominance in the region is the stimulating force of various regional as well as international in human disorders including colonial exploitation, bloodshed, genocide and permanent slavery of the oppressed nations, uncertain strategic military power dynamics of the region turning it into the battlefield of global confrontation between economic and military superpowers of the world, triggering regional territorial disputes and armed tensions, disrupting global political harmony and peace, rise in human rights violations and state torture to an unexpected scale, oppression of political nationalistic voice of Sindh and Baluchistan (which is already happening), rise in support and funding of fundamentalist forces in the region by Chinese and Punjabi imperialism to abuse it against the separatist movements resulting in a great threat to secular and democratic voices on international level, countries bordering Pakistan will be on the hit list of the Islamic terrorists then (as recent regional news reports show the secret meetings of Afghan Taliban with Chinese authorities on the behalf of Pakistani military head), and the most important of all narratives is that the “nations chained in the forced annexation of Pakistani federation (Sindhi, Baloch, Pashtun, Balawaristani, Pakistani occupied Kashmiris) will suffer to the verge of extinction because there is no any example in the history of the world that imperialist forces have ever worked to empower and develop the oppressed nations through investing in the projects like CPEC, while they (oppressed nations) have already been enduring the worst situations like genocide, enforced disappearances, extra-judicial killings, military operations to make them admit that the oppressors [Chinese Punjabi (Paki) Imperialisms] are working for their welfare. This is too a question of grave concern that why is Punjabi imperialist military establishment caring so intensely for the rights and development of the nations whom they have exploited and oppressed for more than 60 years?! And that too, in such a way that by torturing and killing their youth, women, children, and elders.

This project is a conspiracy against our homelands, national interests and generations to come, and the new political economic and military doctrine of the Punjabi imperialism to build a Greater Punjabi State in the name of Islam and Pakistan which will never be endured by the loyal and conscious sons of Sindh and Baluchistan. Its irony of the fate to admit that entire Punjabi nation including their intellectuals, so-called progressives, religious groups, political and military establishment are on the same page. This is the biggest misfortune and irony of the Punjab that there does not exist any one of the Punjabis to stand against this international conspiracy and its colonial designs, aggression oppression and occupation over the oppressed nations squirming in its hands.

Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz is striving politically against this China-Pak conspiracy project which is conspired to convert Sindhis and Baluchs into a minority because this project includes some other fierce folds too, like the construction of mega city projects i.e. Zulfiqarabad and Gwadar aimed to deprive them of their right to their resources. Conspiracy of converting them in ethnic minority will obviously result in Non-Sindhi so-called democratic representation of Sindhis in the so-called democratic institutions of Pakistan dominated by alien settlers safeguarding the interests of Punjabi imperialism and depriving the native Sindhis to hold the significant majority to represent the national interests of the native people of Sindh and thus negating even the Sindh’s democratic right to oppose the imperialism and conspiracies in a democratic pattern. It will also result in the sectarian and ethnic split among the dwellers of Sindh disturbing their unity and hence exterminate the voice for their freedom. Therefore, JSMM holds her clear political stance over the issue that it will pose great risk and danger to the global peace. Pakistan intends to trickily trap China in its conspiracy of bloodshed and the genocide of oppressed nations and permanent occupation over Sindh and Baluchistan, which will be great damage to the moral reputation of China on the international level. To fulfill its nefarious designs Punjab will nurture and shelter the fundamentalist forces in the region to abuse them against nationalist freedom movements of the oppressed nations but as its side effects, it will be a great threat to the secularist and liberal democratic values in the region too. The entire region will burn in the fire of religious terrorism. The oppressed Sindhi, Baluch, Pashtun, Balawaristani and Saraiki nations will be expelled out from their lands to build Punjabi settlements through military might. To mislead the world from reacting on human rights violations and genocide of Sindhi, Baluch, Pashtun and Saraiki nations Pakistani intelligence agencies will ignite the fire of ethnic, lingual and sectarian terrorism and civil wars in their territories. This region is moving towards devastation and mass destruction due to the imperialist designs of Punjabi Agencies. It is only being done with the consensus and interests of Punjab and there seems no space for the existence and well-being of the oppressed nations at all but only destruction, slavery, disgust and devastation for them. Thus we are determined to struggle till victory or death, using every mode of political resistant struggle for our national survival and existence. From the grounds of Sindh to every international platform, JSMM is raising her voice over every atrocity, conspiracy committed against Sindh and Baluchistan like CPEC; and is determined to strive against it.

We appeal entire international community, United Nations, EU, USA, UK, Germany, France, India and all the other civilized nations of the world to stop China from bringing up the devastation on world in the name of CPEC and funding the fascist theocratic state of Pakistan which is the womb and vector of the Islamic terrorism in the world. The World must step forward to save the oppressed secular Sindhi and other nations of the region by supporting them in their struggle for national independence, in order to save the Asian continent and obviously Asia is the emblem of global peace if it is at rest the entire world would entertain peace and tranquility.
