Karachi: Awami National Party (ANP) Sindh President, Senator Shahi Syed on Sunday said that his party believed and engaged in the politics of principles and urged the nation to crush the mindset that promotes a culture of guns.
Addressing a rally in Karachi, the ANP leader said that his party pursues the philosophy of non-violence as preached by Bacha Khan. “If we take up arms, it will negate the philosophy of Bacha Khan,” he added.
“We are not competing against MQM, as we are practical followers of Bacha Khan and Ahmed Shah Abdali,” Shahi Syed said.
Shahi Syed appealed to the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) to stop subjecting Pakhtuns to discrimination, adding ‘we had joined PPP for strengthening the democracy’.
He paid tribute to the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry for the Supreme Court’s judgments.
