Without a Peep

THATTA: Heavy machinery, including bulldozers and excavators, is being used for bulldozing and excavation at the site of the Makli necropolis for the past 24 hours. This is being done by ex-MPA Ghulam Qadir Palijo, who is also the father of Sindh Minister Sassui Palijo.A visit to the site revealed that the bulldozing and excavation was being done on the Makli hill monuments site area that was adjacent to the land of Ghulam Qadir Palijo. This site leads to the shrine of great Sindhi warrior Dolah Darya Khan and Sindh ruler Jam Nizamuddin. There were remnants of old graves already flattened by bulldozers. As per the workers, they were digging a drainage water channel for the land of Ghulam Qadir Palijo. Local people said several graves were destroyed and flattened during the bulldozing work and several graveyards of some local communities were also destroyed.The incident has generated wide-scale resentment among the socio-political circles and members of the civil society, and is being condemned by the people of all walks of life here.Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (JSQM) leader Bashir Khan Qureshi said his party would launch a movement in Sindh to stop this action by Ghulam Qadir Palijo and demanded punishment to all those responsible for this sacrilege of the historic site.
