He referred to this struggle as a 38 years of Unification which transformed from All Pakistan Mohajir Students organization to Muttahida Quami Movement and is still standing strong against all atrocities against its workers, members and leadership. He requested people to donate their zakat to KKF as Pakistani establishment is creating all sorts of roadblocks in stopping KKF from collecting the funds and helping needy people.
Senator Babar Khan Ghouri while addressing the guests highlighted the sacrifices of Mohajirs in the creation of Pakistan and the contribution of Mohajir ancestors in laying the foundation of this Country. He emphasized on the importance of merit system and blamed the establishment and corrupt leaders who were responsible for dividing this country for their own benefits. He blamed the government for not trusting and empowering the people who have elected MQM Mayors for more than 8 months and have still not been given powers and oath to run the offices. He said these injustices and mistrust are the prime reasons why MQM was created. He demanded that Pakistan should be divided in to smaller administrative Provinces instead of four provinces which have existed for over 60 years and are based on ethnic boundaries.
