URDU SPEAKING NATION SHOULD BE CATEGORIZED AS "ETHNIC AND LINGUISTIC MINORITY“ IN PAKISTAN IN ACCORDANCE WITH
UN Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities
Syed Jamaluddin, author of „FORMATION OF REPUBLIC OF JINNAHPUR“ and an active campaigner for an independent state for Urdu speaking nation living in Pakistan has demanded of the Government of Pakistan to categorize Urdu speaking nation as „ETHNIC AND LINGUISTIC MINORITY“ as defined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities.
Syed Jamaluddin has also asked the Government of Pakistan to provide an ethnic and linguistic autonomy to Urdu speaking nation living in Karachi and other cities in the province of SINDH under a specific „AUTONOMY PACKAGE“ similar to GILGIT-BALTISTAN AUTONOMY PACKAGE 2009 described as Gilgit-Baltistan Empowerment and Self-Governance Order 2009. He has also demanded of the Government of Pakistan to allow Urdu speaking nation to describe themselves as „URDU SPEAKING MINORITY“and as such all Government forms, literature and official correspondence should indicate this specific identity of Urdu speaking nation with immediate effect. Urdu speaking nation should not be classified as „SINDHIS“ in any manner because Urdu speaking people are not Sindhis. Putting the label of „SINDHI“ on Urdu speaking nation is rather a great insult of Urdu speaking people. Urdu speaking people should be identified in terms of their own ehtnic and linguistic origin i.e. URDU SPEAKING MINORITY.
Syed Jamaluddin has requested ALTAF HUSSAIN, leader of MQM, not to destroy the identity of Urdu speaking nation living in Pakistan by eliminating their ethnic and linguistic significance. Syed Jamaluddin has condemned the policy of Altaf Hussain by virtue of which Altaf Hussain is busy in pleasing Punjabi military establishment and Sindhi political administration for temporary gains. Syed Jamaluddin has reiterated that Pakistan has nothing to offer to the Urdu speaking nation living in present undivided Pakistan. He has pledged to continue his efforts for making of REPUBLIC OF JINNAHPUR regardless of his limited resources. Syed Jamaluddin has requested all Urdu speaking intellectuals to understand his message and join hands with him in promoting the idea of an independent state for Urdu speaking nation.
