Can Hazarewal compromise on Hazara Province????????
Many people from different parts of country especially people from NWFP frequently asked questions from last 2 week:
Is there any way to unite the province? Is there any way to satisfied Hazarewal and they stop demanding Hazara province? Can Hazarewal compromise on Hazara Province???????? Would Hazarewal be ready to accept on Hazara Pakhtoon Khawa?
So in this concern I interviewed many Hazarewal and being Hazarewal I was thinking on this issue for many days. I told you earlier in mine column that the grievances of Hazarewals, are only not over the name Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. The renaming of NWFP merely triggered expression of their frustration against the treatment meted out to them. The name issue is just a symptom, the root lies elsewhere.
While interviewing the Hazarewal majority of them said never ever. But some of them told, they can think to live with them (attock par). If, they (ANP), present a new bill in parliament and parliament approved this bill.
In this bill, First of all rename Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa to Abaseen or Afghania or Frontier. If it is not possible then Hazara Pakhtoon khawa as a last option. Then there should be a surety to us (Hazarewal) that the jobs quota from NWFP to Hazarewal will be 40% compulsory. Similarly, in educational institutions 40% of the seats must be reserved for Hazarewal.40% of whole Budget of NWFP is for development of Hazara. And at least one the major seat whether it is Speaker Ship or Chief Minister Ship or Governor Ship of the Province, in every formation of Government must be given to a person belong from Hazara. And 40% representation in Cabinet is also must.
If they are ready to give us then we people think about to live with them (attock par). Other wise there is no chance to live with them. When I asked them why these conditions are? They told me that they are more then 40% of population of province and generating more then 85% of revenue of Province. But we people had been depriving for last 50 years. And our movement for separate province is from 60s.But now enough is enough.We can take our rights. And we have learnt that Right can not be given; it has to be taken. When the people saying this I felt a different type of zeal in them.
So I think that those who want to unite the province they must accept their demands other wise no one can stop Hazara Province. If people of attock par change their attitude towards Hazara and treat them on equality and behave like brother and accept their demands written above, I think province will be united other wise…………………..
