Pakistan: MQM-P holds women-only demonstration against Sindh Local Government (Amendment) Bill, 2021

Karachi, Pakistan: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) on Wednesday staged a women-only demonstration to protest against Sindh Local Government (Amendment) Bill, 2021 which was recently passed by the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) provincial government.

A large number of women had assembled at Regal Chowk in Saddar to participate in the protest.

Carrying placards, party flags and chanting slogans against what they termed a “black law”, they demanded that the PPP government further amend the bill to make it more acceptable for people of all ethnic origins living in the province and more effective in terms of power sharing with the local government representatives, reports Dawn News.

The party earlier asked people of the area to  come out and protest against the “dictatorial law” the PPP government had passed in the assembly.

Addressing the protesters, senior leader Amir Khan said the people of Karachi and other cities of the province had given their verdict against the local government law.

“This feudal style of governance of the PPP in Sindh is causing a great deal of unrest among the people and has turned into the feeling of alienation,” said Amir Khan, adding that “the law passed by the Sindh Assembly is in fact in direct conflict with the Constitution of Pakistan and in flagrant violation of Article 140-A of the Constitution."
