Why was Sarkash Sindhi expelled from JSQM?


The decision to cancel his membership took a while in coming, but it’s here at last, and can be seen as an extremely welcome step taken by the GMist council of the JSQM Basheer Qureshi group.

Aala Hazrat Sarkash Sindhi’s JSQM membership was suspended today because:

1) He had been spreading hate-literature against Hindus;
2) He had threatened Women’s Action Forum (WAF) members, including Amar Sindhu.

Who is Sarkash Sindhi?

This is a story that I’ve collected through a bunch of sources. It is sad and interesting at the same time, so here goes:

Once upon a time, Sarkash Sindhi was in love with a woman, who he (for some reason) treated like a daughter. Eventually, the woman fell in love with a Hindu man. When Sarkash found out, he professed his own love for her, but the woman told him that she did not love him “that way”. Thenceforth, the people in Sarkash saheb’s head decided to forget all ideologies, etc, and hate Hindus with a passion.

This story is important in this context, because the casual reader needs to understand that Sarkash’s anti-Hindu pamphlets were not the result of “Islamic extremism,” etc, but the actions of an immature “jilted” (?) lover.

Internal democracy in JSQM:

I’ve been asked about this by quite a few people, even though I’m not a JSQM member. I’ve tried to explain the system to them, but they did not believe me, so I’ll take this example [of Sarkash’s expulsion] to prove my case.

Sarkash Sindhi is an old man. Prior to his unsuccessful love affair, he was an ardent Jeay Sindh worker, and currently a member of the JSQM GMist council (the highest level in the Party — similar to the central secretariat in a Communist Party). The decision to expel him had to be taken by the GMist council itself — “even Basheer Qureshi (the chairman of the party) could not do it on his own if he wanted to,” sources in the party told me.

This is true for every decision of this sort in JSQM. A case has to be presented to and argued before the GMist council. If your case is sound, action will be taken — even if it is against a member of this council, as in the case of Sarkash Sindhi.

From what I’m told, JSQM also holds regular elections. That, in my opinion, is as democratic as a political party can possibly get. *salute and much respect to my Deshi comrades*
