Restructure Pakistan into multiple autonomous states or face an existential threat: Pakistan’s minority leader Nadeem Nusrat

Bluntly questioning the celebrations of Pakistan's Defence Day, Nadeem Nusrat said that the Pakistani military establishment might not even like to discuss this, but the fact remains that the country has lost all its wars against India.

After thrashing Pakistan stating that it had no moral right to speak on behalf of Kashmiris, prominent Mohajir leader Nadeem Nusrat this time warned Pakistan that it could face a “potentially existential threat” and advised Islamabad to restructure Pakistan into multiple autonomous states suggesting that it is the only viable solution to save the country.

According to ANI, Nadeem Nusrat, who is the Chairman of the US-based advocacy group, Voice of Karachi, in a special message on Pakistan’s Defence Day on September 6, said that in the history of the last 72 years, particularly after the creation of Bangladesh, it has been proven that Pakistan cannot become a nation-state, mainly due to Punjab’s hegemony over other ethnic groups.

“The creation of autonomous states is also in accordance with the 1940 Lahore Resolution, widely regarded as the basis for Pakistan’s creation, which had also called for the formation of autonomous states in India”, Nusrat said in a statement.

In a statement released by the Mohajir leader, “The founding fathers of Pakistan had already anticipated this threat and had, therefore, demanded the creation of ‘independent states’ as opposed to what the country eventually turned out to be”.

Quoting the 1940 Lahore resolution in his statement, Nusrat said, “That geographically contiguous units are demarcated regions which should be constituted, with such territorial readjustments as may be necessary that the areas in which the Muslims are numerically in the majority as in the North-Western and Eastern Zones of (British) India should be grouped to constitute ‘independent states’ in which the constituent units should be autonomous and sovereign.”

“The wording of the historic 1940 Resolution is an irrefutable proof that Pakistan’s current administrative structure is a blatant violation of the true aspirations of Pakistan’s founding fathers, and it is about time to address this betrayal,” the statement read.

“Pakistan’s existential threat comes from ‘within’ and not from India, Afghanistan, Israel or the US, as indoctrinated by Pakistan’s military establishment since its inception. The steady emergence of jihadist forces, religious intolerance, terror infrastructure, ethnic divisions, Pakistani military’s constant interference into civilian issues and its manipulation of election results, corruption, poor governance are the real threats to Pakistan’s integrity and national security,” the chairman said.

Bluntly questioning the celebrations of Pakistan’s Defence Day, Nadeem Nusrat said that the Pakistani military establishment might not even like to discuss this, but the fact remains that the country has lost all its wars against India.

Last month, Nadeem Nusrat had hit back at the terrorist state of Pakistan after it had attempted to interfere in India’s affairs by protesting against the historic decision to revoke special status to Jammu and Kashmir. He had said that Pakistan had “no moral right to speak on behalf of Kashmiris.”

Nadeem Nusrat had also stated that Pakistan must first provide the same rights to all ethnic minorities in its own territory before speaking on behalf of Kashmiris.

Nusrat is one of the most prominent minority voices representing the ‘Mohajirs’ of Pakistan. He leads a life of exile in the US. His group has been demanding the creation of a ‘Greater Karachi’ within Pakistan. Mohajirs are the Muslim immigrants belonging to multiple ethnic groups who had migrated to Pakistan from various parts of India.
