First time in Pakistani History Shia Political Party announces the list of its Candidates for the Election 2013

MWM fields candidates for Election 2013JNN 2 May 2013 Karachi : With a Number of Political and Religious Parties active in the Pakistani Politics , it is the first time in the History of Pakistan that a Shia Political Party of Pakistan , has nominated its candidates and is contesting the Upcoming Election 2013.

There are even a Number of Shia Religious , Political , Student Parties already Present in Pakistan , but Upto date there has not been a single Shia Party which has Nominated and have contested the Elections , in the history of Pakistan , with such a big Number of Candidates being contesting from the Provincial as well as National Assembly Seats from all over Pakistan.

There are Two Major Shia Parties in Pakistan , Namely “ Islami Tehreek ” Generally know as “ Shia Ulema Council ” led by Allama Sajid Ali Naqvi , and the other The Party which is “ Majlis e Wahadat e Muslimeen ” ( MWM ) , the rest of the Parties and group are either Regional or on the District level .

Islami Tehreek is an Old Party , which has couple of times tried to surface up in the National Elections but have not succeeded in any National or Provincial Seat in any of the Previous Elections , even though it has representation in quite a vast areas of Pakistan , but due to the fact that Shia Vote bank and supporter are scattered all over Pakistan , but if we compare their density constituency wise , then it is very hard to acquire Parliamentary seats , due to the scattered nature of Shia Population.

And in the areas where the density is very rich , in the areas like ParaChinar , Gilgit – Baltistan, Parts of Quetta , Jhang , Karachi, the Shia Vote Bank is being taken Hostage by the Main Stream Parties like PPP , MQM who at the time of Elections Field Shia Candidates from these constituencies , but after winning Elections , they forget all the Promises they have made to give security and Prosperity in those regions , and even the Shia Representative which have won elections from these constituencies toe the Party Policy , instead of safe guarding the Interest of their Voters who are the main source due to which they enjoy all the privileges and Perks,  and thus due to this fact , the Shia Population’s voice could not reach the Parliament or the Senate , where the Legislation is needed to Uphold the security and the right of self determination , which is even guaranteed even in the constitution of Pakistan.

And thus in keeping all these Problems in mind , A New Party has come on the stage of Pakistani Politics been under the title of Majlis e Wahdat e Muslimeen ( MWM ) , and People have been quite Hope full from them , as they have not been tested up till now , and Shia Population have given them all the support which is needed to enforce them as their representatives , and in this scenario MWM has fielded about 125 Candidates from across Pakistan , for Provincial and National assembly seats , and have also made seat adjustments and are backing Some Candidates of Like minded Moderate Parties , which are against extremism and terrorism , and also condemn takfiri Groups which are trying to enforce their form of Extremist Religion in Pakistan.

The MWM has fielded about 21 Candidates for the National Assembly seats , 32 Candidates for Sindh Provincial Assembly , 24 for Punjab Assembly seats and 5 for Baluchistan Assembly seats , while 5 candidates are fielded on Special Women’s Qouta Seats .

Islami Tehreek has done Electoral alliance with the Pakistan People Party , and have thus not fielded any candidates from their own Platform.

The fact that two of the older Shia parties are still aligned with the PPP the Islami Tehreek headed by Allama Sajid Naqvi has made an alliance with the PPP while the supporters of Tehreek-e-Nifaz Fiqh Jaferia led by Allama Hamid Moosvi are traditionally known to vote for the PPP.
It is difficult to say anything for sure at the moment not just because the MWM is new but also because in the past the Shia community has never voted as a bloc. `The people of Pakistan do not vote for sect-based parties; this has been repeatedly reflected in various election results,` said Haris Khalique, a newspaper columnist and poet based in Islamabad. However he hastened to add that `the MWM case is different because it is benefiting from a reaction to the existing sense of persecution among Shia population in country.

At some level, the party is aware of this paradox which helps explain its threepronged electoral strategy.

At the top are the `core seats`, which are constituencies with considerable Shia votes. In this category the party has fielded its own candidates.

We have strong candidates for constituencies with major Shia population,` said Nasir Sheerazi, secretary of the political wing, MWM.

In the second category it has placed those constituencies where there is a Shia vote large enough to play a role; here the party is trying to form local level alliances or seat adjustment arrangements with other players.

`Negotiations are under way where there is a sizeable Shia population,` he added.

Third are the constituencies where the party wants to play the role of a spoiler or send a message to particular parties. This third category includes seats such as the one in Jhang which is to be contested by Sheikh Waqas` father, Sheikh Muhammad Akram; the MWM will support him against Maulana Muhammad Ludhianvi, the chief of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat.

Similarly, the party plans to support Riaz Peerzada, the PML-N candidate from Bahawalpur. `Our main objective is to block extremists in politics, get rid of criminal elements and pave the way for tolerant people to be active in the electoral process,` Mr Sheerazi said without naming any party.

Despite its public intentions to support PML-N candidates such as Peerzada, the MWM has not held any formal talks with the top PML-N leadership.

In other areas in Punjab, the MWM is also hopeful of making its mark in areas such as Bhakkar.

Local journalists feel that in the current situation the MWM might just make a difference it is difficult to predict the impact though.

`The reaction to the lack of performance by the mainstream parties will reflect in the election results,` said Muhammad Pervaiz Durrani, a journalist who runs a local FM radio in Layyah.

`There is a large Shia population in Bhakkar many of them have arrived from Dera Ismail Khan and other parts of KPK due to terror threats there. A reactionary vote from them could favour the MWM,` Mr Durrani added.The MWM leadership is banking on this reaction as well.

It is noteworthy that in Punjab the MWM can tap into the Shia vote because the sectarian lines overlap with other faultlines for instance in Jhang, the Sunni vote tends to be that of the Punjabi migrants who came over at the time of partition while the Shia voters are the indigenous population. The overlapping, say observer, can make it easier for the MWM.

However, in Karachi this is exactly what can work against the MWM as the Shia voters in the city tend to vote on ethnic lines , as the Shia Community in the Urban Karachi are quite different from the Shia Voter in Rural Punjab or Rural Sindh . Despite this, the MWM is surprisingly hopeful about its electoral fortunes in this city. And Plus the Candidates which are Nominated By MWM in the Karachi City are not any Known Personalities of the Community, as they are exactly fresh candidates for the Election as well as the Community. So it is really a test for the MWM to show its Performance in the upcoming Elections.

Overall however it is difficult to predict how well the MWM will do electorally. Its ability to win over voters as well as to counter the appeal of the Shia candidates of other parties will prove to be no small hurdle.

This is something most voters also realize. `We vote for someone who is known to us as an individual or as a member of clan,` said Syed Sarfraz Hussain Ghardezi, a local leader of Islamabad, who added `Politics is not akin to standing behind a prayer leader during Namaz.

The details of all the MWM candidates can be seen in the list given below :

The Sorry State of Shia Leadership

Shia Leadership of PakistanJNN 6 March 2013 Karachi : The Shia Nation has been 3rd time badly hit by the terrorist Network since 12th Jan, 2013’s  Twin Bombing on the Alamdar Road in Quetta, in a short span of time, i.e about 50 Days time 255 Shia Men , Women and Children are being alone Martyred in these 3 incidents of Bomb Blast of Karachi and Quetta, rest of about 50 Shia Men who lost their lives in the continued Target Killing across Pakistan in the same period , make the figure even higher , as the Patient Shia Nation has borne this Killing and atrocities for about last 30 – 35 years in Pakistan , and have since then waited for a reliable and credible Shia Leadership , since the Loss of Allama Arif al Hussain Al Hussaini , who really worked Day in and Day out for the Shia Nation and created a Sense of security in the Common Shia Public , as they were confident that they are not speechless in this time of Misery and Disaster , as there is some body to speak for their rights and the atrocities being done against them .

But the Establishment of Pakistan who at that time was busy minting money coming from US , Saudia and UAE , was not interested that any body should disturb them , while they are busy counting their Foreign Exchange reserves , and they were least Bothered if it costed them Shia Body bags or even at the cost of the Whole of the Shia Nation .

As this was the time when the Disgruntled Shia Nation was Looking for a Reliable and Credible Leadership , that Can take the charge , and can take a Stand Like Mufti Jaffer Hussain or can be brave and and Unite the Shia Nation like Allama Arif Hussain , But Alas!

So Many Climbed and Claimed the Benefits of the Status , But Non Delivered as per the Inspiration and the Necessities and complexities of the Situation, and the time Passed away .

Finally a Group of Revolutionary Minded Clerics , took a step forward and launched a Shia Political cum Religious Party , under the Banner of Majlis e Wahdat e Muslimeen, which took its time in organizing , the Party on National Level , and the Best Part of the Party was that they talk of Unity of the Shiite Nation , and discarded Nation being divided in parts and groups .

As we all saw that the Alamdar Road Blast was the Turning Point , in the Shiite History also that regardless of Differences among different Parties and groups , Whole of the Community rose above their Personal and Party Differences and took a firm stand on the Issue , and whole of the Pakistani , rather the International Community , saw that whole of the Pakistani Shia Nation was committed and United for the Cause , and that sent tremors waves in the Political , Administrative and Establishment of Pakistan.

And the result was that the Government has to Bow and surrender to the Legitimate Demands of the Community , and the Governor Rule was imposed in the Balochistan Province.

The Misery was not yet over , as the 2nd Kirani Road, Hazara Town Blast , Once again Shook the Shia Nation , and the Act of Unity and Show of Shia Strength was Once again Shown and Proven , And this was the time when the Political Parties , which were now really disturbed by the Unity and the Massive Show of Strength took their Stand and Started to Play a game of Politics and the Lead Players were the So called Owners of Karachi , as this is the first time in History that any group or Party has shown such a Massive Show of Strength and Unity in Karachi, that the City was almost Paralyzed by the Protest Sit Ins on about 32 different Places  ,so their strategy was first by Painting the Picture as ethnic , instead of Sectarian , Just to create division in the United Shia Stand ,and secondly gain the Benefit of sympathies of a whole constituency , where they can achieve their Provincial and National Assembly Seats , and that also in the troubled Province of Balochistan, and if they win to do that then can be also be spokes person for the Shia community Partly if not wholly.

Any way as the Shia Community have seen so many conspiracies, from Within and Outside that they completely rejected which was a great set back for them , and then they got ready for their Plan B, and sent their good wishes to the enemies of the Shia Community , and Paid Visits in the name of reconciliation and Harmony among different sects.

But This reconciliation and Harmony gave a Present in shape of a Huge Bomb Blast in a Shia Neighborhood of Karachi , which resulted in the casualty of about 55 Men , Women, and Children , Total destruction of about 200 Homes , and 100 Shops , and among the victims of all this disaster , the Majority which bore this Burn was now again the Shia Community.

As Shia nation is not afraid of the Martyrdom and Destruction , as they have been going on through this for the Last 14 Centuries , and as per their Believe they ‘ll will have to face this till the Dooms Day , except in the Reign of the Present Imam Mehdi AJTF, who will rule the Whole World with such a Justice that No One has to bear any Injustice , regardless of its color , cast , creed or Religion.

But the Question and the fight of the Shia Nation is that the Cost of any Death and Destruction to the Community should be such Huge , that even the Blood thirsty enemy should think twice , before committing such a Henious crime , and to fix the Price of Death and Destruction to the Community , is the work and thought of the Leadership is to decide as How the Enemy should be Nailed that it has to pay the Price .

As in the case of the Bomb Blast in Abbas Town , Karachi , the Biggest City of Pakistan , The whole of the Shia Nation was eyeing and was Pin Drop Silent to hear the Strategy of their Leadership , as What has to be done to Stop this Menace in the First Place , and How the Enemy should be encountered , and secondly , as whole of the Shia Nation was ready to March along side their Leader ship , but they looked like speech less.

As per the sources the Political Leadership of Karachi was very Much annoyed and disturbed by the earlier two Protest Sit Ins in Karachi and across Pakistan , each of which lasted for several days , paralyzing the whole city and the Nation for Several Days .

So On the Direct Orders of the Governor of Sindh the Shia Leadership was asked not to give any call for such Protest , while they were given fake assurances , we don’t know whether the Leadership followed on the given Instructions willingly or Under Pressure, but as the Shia Community has suffered a Huge Loss ,not only by losing their loved Ones , but also losing their Shelter and Businesses , but till now the Leadership which they have entrusted and backed , has uptill now , not come up with any thing concrete steps, that may heal up the wounds of the Shia Nation and specially the victims of the Bomb Blast , who are now homeless Orphans.

In a Situation like this the Leader ship should take the nation in confidence , by sharing their future and Present strategy , instead of Hiding behind the curtains , as it raises the eye Brows of Many , who are ready to infiltirate the system and to derail the Unity Band wagon , which has been achieved by the Nation after a very Long time , and after Paying a Huge Cost.

It is a very crucial time for All the Active Players of the Leadership , whether it may be Shia Ulema Council (SUC) , Majlis e Wahdat e Muslimeen (MWM) , Shia Action Comitte (SAC) , Jafaria Alliance Pakistan (JAP) , Imamia Students Organisation (ISO) or other regional & City level Groups should sit together and Urgently formulate a United Policy, which can be Implemented across Pakistan Unilaterally for the safety and well being of whole of the Shia Community to fight against the Evil forces .

As with the every Passing Moment , the Political Parties which have been threatened by the Shia Unity and Strength are trying to Infiltrate and create disintegration among the shia Nation, so the formula is Sooner the Better. Rather than for Waiting for Next Disaster to come up and shaken the confidence of the Nation in the Leadership.
