Truth about BP's community development in Badin?

Dear Sathio:
District Badin is most southern District of the country having population of 1.5 million. by natural resources it is richest District of Pakistan Due to huge reservoirs of high quality Natural Petroleum and natural Gas.
In the 2000 it was declared the poorest District of the Country by World Bank. And Government of Pakistan. The poverty rate is 90%.
The extractive industry emerged Badin in early 80s, now all the extractive operations and production are carried out by a Single Multinational Company British Petroleum BP.
Badin Rural Development Society (BRDS) is rights base non- profit Civil Society organization of indigenous people of Badin.
BRDS has raised voice for the right share of the local people from Multinational Companies time by time .but unfortunately the British Petroleum BP continuously deny the rights of Local Communities; even they are not ready to share the information about the agreement documents which has been signed with government of Pakistan.
Recently Team of excellent Sindhis at USA and around the world has extended the pressure on British Petroleum to fulfill the community development responsibilities .In return the Country Manager of BP Pakistan as well as a report published in locals periodical Badin Magazine supported by BP have claimed various development intervention which are based on bundle of lies, disinformation and exaggeration.
(A Detailed report about the real facts and figures is also attached here with)
In this connection BRDS with Action Aid Pakistan (AAPK) is going to organize a consultation Meeting with Local Communities, politicians, intellectuals, journalist and other civil society activists at Badin on 12th of April 2005. to discuss the real situation and develop a strategy for the future struggle for the rights of the indigenous People of BADIN.
In this regard , your support and guidance will be real share in a noble cause .

A Detail Report On British Petroleum Claims:
(This report is based on the claims made by Country Manager of British Petroleum in a emailed letter to Mr. Khalid Hashmani Member of Sindhi Excellent Team at Washington as well as a report published by British petroleum BP in a recent Issue of Local Magazine.)
The Local Communities has a long history of their Struggle to achieve their right share From Multinational Companies operating in the area.
Shaheed Fazil Rahoo who was a legend of this cause was assassinated in a mysterious condition on 17th January 1987.Dr. Akash Ansari the political colleague of Shaheed Fazil has never let down the flag of Shaheed through his writing, Poetry and raising voice for the indigenous and marginalized communities by a most Active civil Society Organization ie Badin Rural Development Society (BRDS).
The Facts and Figure finding Team (FFFT) was formed By BRDS in the end of the February to make a impartial, real picture of ground scenario. The Team Members Were:
· Dr. Akash Ansari
Khadim Hussain
Atiq Raja
Ms. Ishrat Qambrani
Ms .Shazia Pusio
The FFFT visited all the villages of operational area , met with communities, various stake holders ,land owners, whose lands are leased by BP, District Adminsration,Distric Nazim (District council chairman,) Executive District officers (EDOs) of health , Roads, Public Works and Community Developments. Some members of team met with the representatives with British Petroleum came from Karachi, Islamabad and Field units at District Nazim Office, where they promised to share all necessary information but despite various reminders they failed to provide any information up to date.
The team also recorded a video film and took photographs of all the development work claimed by BP and team also recorded the comments of local communities.
In early 80’s of last century a huge reservoirs of Natural Oil and Gas was explored at two Taluka’s i-e Golarchi (Now called Shaheed fazil) and Matli of District Badin. By an American Company Union Taxes Pakistan (UTP).
In 2000 these all operations were handed over to a British Oil Company called British Petroleum BP.British petroleum (BP) exploration and production is a multinational company having operations around the world. British petroleum is operating at District Badin since 2000 which is providing largest portion of Oil and Natural Gas of the total production of the country .As an international corporate sector BP has a responsibility to spend a fixed amount of the profit for the betterment of the local communities those are living in the surroundings of the Operational Area.
The Fact Figure Finding Team found the following ground realities:

Drinking Water Mega Scheme Claim:
British Petroleum Claimed that, Following Water schemes has been provided to for the betterment of Communities.
Over 1200 hand pumps at cost of ($ 135000) over 8 million Rupees.
Total beneficiaries 30000
Field Team Findings:
After the Visit of more than the 70% of Operations area of the Company,
o We did not find a single hand pump provided by the British Petroleum.
We also had meeting in twenty five villages those are living very next to walls of the fields
o The area especially union council Ahmed Rajo is facing severe shortage of river water since eight years , and under ground water is saline But Company Did not give them a Drop of water and some times communities drink and take bath with the drains water which contains chemicals, industrial waste and pesticides coming from upper stream .
The Fields area looks very beautiful and bright at night time But children of the real owners of the wealth has not lamp for the home work. And as they have the darkness in the life they would have the dark future.
Mostly the owners of the lands which are occupied under the operations by the company are complained for receiving very meager amount. In return of their fully cultivable agriculture lands. Not receiving proper or Right Amount.
Mr. Umar Samejo resident of Village Sameja Near Khorwah Chock Oil Field told that, he receives only sixteen thousand Pakistani rupees from BP while this land can give us agriculture production of more than rupees 80,000 per year.

Infrastructure Development Claim:
488 Km of roads were made by the Company
40 bridges and Canals were constructed for the people.
1000 water courses were made.
Approximately ($ 2.5 million) are used for infrastructure Development.
Team findings:
All the roads are not made for the communities but due to Marshy area Company’s Oil tankers and other logistic machinery and vehicles can not move easily and roads are directly linked with Production fields not with the local Villages.
District Badin is also called the land of Drains which carries contaminated water to pour in the Arabian Sea. For the Mobility of heavy machinery and vehicles, movable Iron Bridges are made which can be move from one place to an other easily.
Not a Single Water course was found made by the BP.
The money has been invested in the area just to provide support to the British Petroleum (BP) itself.
Employment Claim:
Over 60% of staff working in BP's field operations are from Sindh,where as approximately 42% of all BP Pakistan employees belong to the same region.
Team Findings: Total permanent employee 600
Sindhi permanent employee 40 to 50
Contract Employee 1000
Sindh employee in contract job 100 to 150.
Case Study:
In 2004 the posts of Maintenance Trainee were Announced by the British petroleum and written test contract was awarded to an other private firm named ENI Executives. After written test only a single Boy from District Badin was qualified and he was called for final interview.
After the silence of many days some friends explored that, what happened?
And they got information that, all the position are filled and more than 80% were Urdu speaking were selected and a only Boy who was indigenous of District Badin was made disqualified by the Authorities of Karachi Office those are Mostly from out Sindh .
If the company is giving priority to the local people then why a only single person from the Operational Area was discriminated by these people.
(Final interview letter can be provided on request)

GOVT. GIRLS DEGREE COLLEGE MATLI BADIN.
Company Claim:
In 1992, at a cost of RS.10 million ($45,000).BP and its joint venture partner, accidental petroleum Inc set up the government girls Degree College in Matli.it is the only girl’s college in the area.
Field Team Findings:
Matli Girls Collage donated by Union Taxas with its Joint partners i.e. oil and gas development corporation Pakistan (OGDC) and Oxydental Petroleum Incorporation ,not British Petroleum.
Due to poor raw material it has been damaged at lot off places.
COMPUTER CENTER AT GIRLS COLLEGE MATLI CLAIM
In 1992 BP established a computer center for girls at the government girls degree college, Matli.it is only such facility for female students in the area. The center was later upgraded when BP donated 10 Pentium -3 desktop computers (plus accessories) at a cost of RS.600, 000($12000). BP also supports the center by donating the salary of the only female computer instructor in the area. Field Team Findings:
It was observed that Computer centre is not Functioning properly.
The claim of Desk top computers was not verified.
EMERGENCY RELIEF BADIN DISTRICT.
Claim :
BP claims that it has had its fair share of major natural disasters. a flood in 2003 followed by crippling rains in 2004 ,left the people of Badin devastated. BP and its joint venture partner occidental petroleum Inc joined local efforts with the government to help alleviate what was a desperate situation. Food was distributed; dry ration bags were handed over district administration, vehicles supplied to transport the affected to relief camps and other relief equipment were also supplied such as medicines and water pumps. Over Rs. 12 million ($200,000) have been contributed to the area for relief efforts.
Field Team Findings:
In 2003 a major flood Disaster happened due to Left Bank out fall Drain (LBOD), which carries the highly contaminated water and made 128 breaches in one night and twelve Union Council came under sever flood.
Which caused many causalities, lost of property thousands of million of rupees.
Accordance to the people of the area as well as information given by government Authorities not a single penny was given for the relief or rehabilitation for the affectees. The comments of District Coordination Officer (DCO) who was the coordinator of district Disaster committee are also attached.
How ever some vehicles were provided by BP to District government for few weeks.

BADIN SPORTS COMPLEX
BP is of the firm belief that promoting sports activities encourages the development of healthier communities. as a result, BP regularly supports sports event, BP has constructed sports complex in Badin .complex was completed in 2000 at a cost of Rs. 1 million($20,000).Field Team Findings:
There is no any sports complex but a single room Squash court was made by the Union Texas not BP in early nintees on the desire of then sitting deputy commissioner Major (Rtd) Iqbal Ahmed who was a very found of squash game..Kario Ghanwar Health Centre:
Claim: BP’s First Health Project in Pakistan. Established in 1988 at Kario Ghanwar Badin. Provides medical assistance to approximately to 25000 residence living in area at cost of Ten Million Rupees. Company also provides much needed medicines free of cost.

Dispensary running by singles Doctor and a Dispenser.
The condition of the Dispensary was not able to admit the patients.

It is observed that since last few years the representatives of Comments from DCO Badin.
District Coordination Officer (DCO) the Head of District Administration has sent following comments about the real situation regarding the British Petroleum in his letter to BRDS reveals that:
· Some community development intervention were carried out by Union Texas But after the 2000 as the company British Petroleum who claims for being a successor of union Texas nothing has done for the community Development at All .
· In the sectors of Health, Education and infrastructure there is never seems any initiative by British Petroleum in the whole District especially in the Operational Area.
· Union Council Ahmed Rajo and Khor wah, where have the maximum number of Oil production units are going to be become at worst stage of the poverty day by Day.
· The existing infrastructure of government has been damaged severely by the company’s logistic and operational movements.
· Company has little number of local People working not as permanent but they have been handed over to the contractor and heir Social and legal rights have been violated. They are on the mercy of contractors who always exploit them in the favor of company.
· As we observed that environment in the operational areas of Badin is badly affected by the activities of BP.
the company made various promises and after passing time they did not keep the promises. They only made lip services.

I think if we can really make difference in the life of the poor in Badin, we will have to come up with some common sense approach. One which I will suggest is that everyone of us have some white american friends. Through these friends we can approach Church organizations and the elderly retired americans to write/ fax and e-mail to the concerned authorities and other significants to make some difference.

Nice posting about injustice with sindhi engineers. The good thing is referring to Patriotic Pakistanis because anyone who work for the noble cause of sindhis are always considered as "Anti-Pakistani" or "Sindhi-Nationalist". It is nice that Patriotic Pakistanis cares about their sindhi brothers. Now I will give our point of view.

Not only BP but almost every oil company working in Sindh are showing discrimination against Sindhi Engineers. Mostly operators or techniction jobs are given to the Sindhi Engineers. They consider us as operator nation. We have been informed unoffically that sindh engineering universities have very low standard of education and therefore sindhi engineers don't have the right capabilities for the engineer post. Most oil companies have never done any investment for the developement of the local areas of Sindh.

It is very interesseted to see that ethnic biharis which are not more than 0.5% of the total Pakistani populations holds almost 70% of the executive jobs of Sindh and Balouchistan oil industry while Sindhi & Balouchis which are around 25% of the total Pakistan populations holds only 5% of the executive jobs of Sindh and Balouchistan oil industry. These are true examples of injustice to Sindhi & Balouchi engineers.

If goverment can't provide us the jobs then why don't they convert Sindh and Balouchistan universities into "Polutry Farms", atleast sindhi and Balouchi engineers will be doing something (selling chickens and eggs).

Thoroughout the world it is general practice that the candidates belonging to the area of oil productions are always given first priorities but unfortunatly this formula does not apply to Pakistan. Example is Balouchistan. There are a lots of oil & gas companies operating in Balouchistan but if you look at the statistics of the peoples working in the Balouchistan oil industry you will find out that around 90% of the total working force are not from Balouchistan. In Sindh it is around 70% of the total working force of the Sindhi oil industry are not from Sindhi origin (mostly biharis).

Yes! 100% correct. BP is commonly known as Bihar Petroleum. Believe or not this name is given by Mohajirs of Karachi city. I live in Karachi and most Karachi-walay dislike biharis.

The universities in Sindh have almost same standard of education as other universities of Pakistan. Saying that Sindh universities have lower standard of education, is very unfair.

We sindhi engineers have the same capabilities as anyother good engineers in Pakistan but biharis which are famous for their stupidity don't deserves to work as engineers. Infact they are not citizen of Pakistan.

If we, sindhi, balouchis, pathans and punjabis, somehow manage to deport all biharis back to bihari camp in Dhaka, then atleast 2000 jobs are availble for us.

The figuers are serious concerns for every sindhi. Biharis who are not more than 0.5% of the total Pakistan population holds around 75% of the total executive jobs in the Sindh oil industry.

I have visited several times the Bihar Petroleum (BP) offices in Karachi & Khaskheli. Every bihari is very well placed by the bihari mafia steering the Bihar Petroleum (BP). Without no doubt these biharis very organised criminal minded peoples. They present themselves as "specialist" and I strongly feels that if the same jobs are given to the Mehran engineering graduates, they will do it more better than the biharis.

The BP (Bihar Petroleum) company have done nothing significant for the Badin area. We all know that Badin is the most undeveloped place in all Sindh. Allmost every oil company operating in Sindh & Balochistan have more or less same policy towards local graduates.

Bihari Mafia is supported by the Punjabi Establishment because they don't want to develop Sindh & Balochistan areas.

Sindhis who migrated from Pakistani Sindh to India don't have the same problems as Pakistani Sindhis because there is no lobby (like Punjabi Establishment & bihari mafia in Pakistan) to suppress & discriminate them. That is why there is no ethnic strife in India in comparision to Pakistan.

Yes! We should deport all biharis back to the Indian state of Bihar or to Bihari camp in Dhaka Bangla Desh.

Offering operator jobs to Sindhi Engineers are like doing sex with Sindhi monthers and giving 5 rupees in compensations. It is a great insult of Sindhi engineers, it is a great insult of Mehran engineering university and it is a great insult of sindhis.

Expel all biharis from Sindh!

Ethinc biharis don't deserves any jobs in the Sindh oil industry. These oil companies are producing oil from Sindhi areas not from Orangi town or bihari colony of Karachi city. All priorities must be given to the Sindhi graduates and engineers. Biharis should work either as rickshaw driver or as male prostitute (these two professions are considered as best professions for Biharis).

We Mehran University of Engineering have a lot of Phd professors who have done their Phd in UK or USA. The standard of education of Mehran engineering university is same or perhaps better than other engineering universities in Pakistan.

Discrimination against sindhi engineers are a policy of rasist punjabi establishment. They don't want to develop sindh and balochistan. They are supporting bihari mafia against sindhis.

We all in Mehran engineering university knows that Bihar Petroleum formally Union Texas Pakistan always do discrimination against Sindhi engineers. The company is full of biharis. The criteria for recruitment is different for biharis.

We students of Mehran engineering university protes about discriminations against sindhi engineers.

You biharis were lucky in 1971 that you got bihari camps in DHaka, Banagladesh. This time you will not even get bihari camp but Bihari qabiristan (bihari gravyard). We Sindhis will give bihari gravyard to biharis in Sindh.

We Sindhis don´t consider biharis as citizens of Pakistan. They are illegal immimgrants like Bengalis and Afghanis.

All oil & gas companies operating in Sindh have a discriminative policy towards Sindhi engineers and graduates. The reasons are simple. Rasist Punjabi Establishment and Punjabi Army don´t want to develop Sindh areas. Punjabi establishment are giving full support to Bihari Mafia in Sindh against Sindhis. They have succesfully managed to covert local sindhis as second class citizens in Sindh.

Sindh produce around 60% of whole Pakistan oil and around 40% of whole Pakistan gas production but ratio of Sindhi engineers in the Sindh oil industry are not more than 5%. These facts are eye opening for all Sindhis. We are slaves on our own land.

Bihar Petroleum formelly Union Texas Pakistan is full of Biharis. They produce oil & gas from Sindhi areas not from Organi Town or Bihar colony of Karachi city. First priority must be given to the local sindhi engineers.

This is the time to unite and expel all biharis to bihari camp in Dhaka, Bangla Desh.

You Punjabi Army, we will give you a lesson which you will never forget the rest of your life. You were lucky that in 1971 you begged Indian Army and managed to escaped as a prison of war (POW) from Bangla Desh. This time you will not even this chance. This time on Indian Army will help you and you wil be begging to Sindhis and we will send you a safe journey to Hell!.

Biharis get out from Sindh!

The graduates of Mehran university of science & technology are doing excellent in the universities, research institutes and in the industrial organisations of USA. If they given a chance in Pakistan they will definitely perform better than any other university graduates of Pakistan. But in Pakistan, industry are discouraging Mehran university graduates because they want to keep sindhis as "second grade" citizens of Pakistan. Just imagine biharis who are commonly known as "empty minded" in India & in Pakistan, are getting almost every job in Sindh. All these because of biharis are united and supported by punjabi establishment. We sindhis are second grade citizen within Pakistan but almost first grade citizen in USA or in UK.

This shows in practical terms in shape of non-recognition of degrees diplomas of the educational institutions of Sindh. This anti-Sindhi attitude and behavior should be stopped. Government and private recruiting agencies should be specifically instructed to recognize and accept the degrees / diplomas of different colleges and universities of Sindh.

The decades old unfair employment practices and the disparaged treatment of the people of Sindh should be reversed through Equal Employment Opportunities in Sindh. Unemployment allowance must be provided to all young persons who have qualified from professional institutions as doctors, engineers, agricultural and business graduates, according to their educational qualifications, until they are employed.

At least seventy five percent jobs should be given to the local population in private organizations like Fauji Foundation, Union Texas, Lasmo Oil, Mari Gauge, M.C.B. Allied Bank, etc. and it should be strictly implemented. There should be a provision of strict legal punishment in case of non-observance of Equal Opportunities systems. Provincial and civilian jobs including jobs in law enforcing agencies, army, rangers, coast guards, constabulary and other para-military forces must be extended to local people.

Sindh is not getting any benefit from the oil discovery. On the contrary Sindh is suffering losses for the simple reasons that on the one hand the mineral resources of Sindh are being reduced but on the other hand the sons of soil are not getting any benefit or facility from it.

Let us talk about oil. The oil is discovered in Sindh but refinery is being set up in Punjab. Similarly, Gas deposits are found in Sindh and Balochistan but priority in supply of Gas is being given to Punjab and NWFP. Nevertheless, the people of Sindh and Balochistan where gas deposits are originally found are still utilizing dung and fire-woods. Every big or small towns of Punjab is being benefited from this. Different products including food-items are available on lower rates in Punjab but the items of same quality are provided in Sindh on double (higher) rates.

Similarly, Punjab is obtaining oil from Sindh and after the refining at its Oil Refinery, Multan is reselling to Sindh almost on double rates. Oil is discovered in Sindh but royalty is not being paid to Sindh. No facilities are being provided to the residents of area where oil is discovered. Instead they have been compelled to migrate with out any proper compensation.

The jobs at Oil Fields are being provided to people belonging to Punjab and the local people who are Sindhis, are being refused the jobs with insulting attitude, in all fields. Oil Company, which was engaged in oil discovery activities in Khirthar area (Sindh), had shot dead a Sindhi who, among others, staging a demonstration for jobs to locals and other got injured. It was pity that no case was registered against the authorities of Oil Company because they (killers) were from Punjab. There are so many incidents happening here but 'world consciousness' is not taking note of it.

We want to point out to the international community that only Punjab is the name of Pakistan. Nevertheless, it is fact that due to Sindh, the area has become geographically important. We, therefore, clarify to the world that if you want peace and harmony in the area, help Sindh in getting sovereignty.

I am shocked again to read this post:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Despite strong protest from sindhi engineers and graduates, the bihar petroleum company recurited recently again several bihari engineers and graduates. These bihari engineers and graduates are:

1. Shahid Ahsan - Planning Engineer - Bihari
2. M. Wahajaat Ali - Executive Assistant - Bihari
3. Najmul Huda Shah - Project specialist - Bihari
4. Tariq Mussarat Hussain - Drilling Engineer - Bihari
5. Hamid Jalal - Petroleum Engineer - Bihari
6. Mohammad Haroon Khan - Planning Engineer - Bihari
7. Tariq Bilal Mehdi - Trainee Petroleum Engineer - Bihari
8. Atif Qayyum - Project Engineer - Bihari
9. Fazal Ur Rahman - Maintance Engineer - Bihari
10. Mohammad Tariq Siddiqui - Operation Geologist - Bihari

These are true injustice with sindhi engineers and graduates

All oil companies operating in the sindh area are involved in serious degree of exploitations of local sindhis technical labours, engineers and graduates. Mostly few labour, internships and contract jobs are offered to sindhis (such jobs are charity for sindhis). The bp or bihar petroleum company is working from last 35 years in sindh and from last 35 years they are providing most of the jobs to the "illegal immigrants bihari graduates".

We all sindhis MUST protest over such economical genocides of sindhis by writting letters to the BP office in london UK.

We all students and graduates of Mehran engineerng university strongly protest against the discriminations of sindhi engineers.

Please take a look at our mehran engineering university website and find our university excellent performance.

After reading all these posting I became very emotional and angry. Why we sindhis are still 3rd grade citizens in our own land of sindh? We sindhis are self responsible for the present dilemna of sindhi engineers and graduates because our sindhi politicans are from "Jagir dar class" and they don't require any jobs and also they are not interesserted in solving the problems of sindhi graduates and engineers as they consider them as "baghis" of the old traditional system/culture of sindh. We sindhis are "stupid" that we gave support to these sindhis wadaraas and jagir dars and became a pupit into their hands. We all educated sindhis should bring reforms in our sindhi tribal cutlure and we should talk in accordance to facts.

I am the fresh graduate, Petroleum Engineer from Mehran University, Jamshoro, I am thankful to all of you who has initiated some kind of protest for us(Pet Engineer). Not only BP but lamost all oil E&P companies behave like BP. Even when they are working in our(sinhi) areas.

Recently OMV (sanwan Gas Field) working in Khairpur anounced jobs for fresh graduate Petroleum engineer, interested candidate were invited to send their resumes. And me and my collegues applied for that, but when it came to call for written test, only graduates from UET Lahore were invited to appear in test.

Is this JUSTICE?

My name is Salim Jokhio and I live in Houstan USA. I was using the Yahoo serach operations and comes up with this website. I read all the posting regarding the injustic with sindhi engineers and graduates and my conclusions are as following:

1. Racist punjabi mafia is helping bihari mafia to suppress sindhis in sindh.

2. Racist punjabi mafia is coverting the "balance" of jobs in sindh and therefore closing all oppurtinities for sindhi graduates

3. Bihar petroleum company like all other petroleum company in sindhis is discriminating sindhis graduates

4. Biharis are not sincere with sindhi land and sindh problems

aftab,
no internship is available even for the sindhi engineers and graduates of meharan engineering university and sindh university graduates. i myself contacted the bihar petroleum company (BP company) in their karachi office. i went their and contacted around 3 managers including the human resources manager. i have been informed that at present there is no internships are available. i asked them what are your recuritment criteria? because most multinational companies have requirement criteria available for all interesseted candidates? they told to contact the "supereme court or high court" and take your case to the "supereme court or high court". they are very clever because they know that a simple poor graduate can never goes to the supereme court or high court and even he goes there he never get any justice because these biharis are criminal minded and they are very organised. our sindi politicans are not sincere with sindhi graduates problems. these politicans are getting "bribe" from oil companies in sindh that is why they never give any press statement against bihar petroleum company. peoples working in bihar petroleum company are very clever and they know how to please sindhi politicans. for example for asif zardari they will offer maria quraishi or talat nasser or any other vip call girl from outside bihar petroleum company for one night and asif zardari (play boy) will forget every thing about injustice with sindhi engineers. always remember that biharis have "no moral characters".

Chairty are only for biharis because they are the original bihakaris of the world. So 75% jobs of the sindh oil industry are for the local sindhi graduates only. Rest should be divided among other ethnic groups of pakistan BUT biharis MUST be given only chairty. Chairty here means "only few internships and operator jobs" MUST be given to these biharis.

We Sindhis are not bihakaris on our own land of sindh. We are the real owners of the Sindh natural resources and biharis are "illegal immigrants" in the sindhi land just like afghanis.

All biharis MUST be deported back to Bihari Camp in Dhaka Bangladesh.

Repatriation of Biharis in Sindh. NO and NEVER. This is a conspiracy to convert Sindhis into minority in their own homeland and strengthen the hands of urban terrorist elements, therefore we all sindhi engineers and graduates demand that the moves of repatriation of Biharis, killers of 30 lakh peaceful Bengalis, on the land of Sindh, be stropped forthwith.

I 100% agree with you.The people of Sindh have for a long time been discriminated against in all the fields of employment and work. Those who have been in power have throughout the history of Pakistan, grabbed all jobs in the public and the private sector.

This menace is only growing out of all proportions. It is time to fix this shameful wrong. The process of large-scale retrenchment of Sindhis from jobs in public sector should be stopped forthwith. Transfers of Sindhi officers, for blackmail or penalty should be stopped forthwith. There is a rampant attitude of partiality, bias, and discrimination against Sindhis in all of the employment recruiting committees and agencies and with officers of the public and private sector.

This shows in practical terms in shape of non-recognition of degrees diplomas of the educational institutions of Sindh. This anti-Sindhi attitude and behavior should be stopped. Government and private recruiting agencies should be specifically instructed to recognize and accept the degrees / diplomas of different colleges and universities of Sindh.

The decades old unfair employment practices and the disparaged treatment of the people of Sindh should be reversed through Equal Employment Opportunities in Sindh. Unemployment allowance must be provided to all young persons who have qualified from professional institutions as doctors, engineers, agricultural and business graduates, according to their educational qualifications, until they are employed.

At least seventy five percent jobs should be given to the local population in private organizations like Fauji Foundation, BP, Lasmo Oil, Mari Gauge, M.C.B. Allied Bank, etc. and it should be strictly implemented. There should be a provision of strict legal punishment in case of non-observance of Equal Opportunities systems. Provincial and civilian jobs including jobs in law enforcing agencies, army, rangers, coast guards, constabulary and other para-military forces must be extended to local people.

Proper share in jobs of Foreign Service, judiciary, ambassadorial and diplomatic services should be ensured and legal framework provided for implementation of fair employment practices in multinational companies. Sindhis should be given their legitimate representation in the Boards of Governors in all public and private sector as well as autonomous organization, including Pakistan International Airline, Civil Aviation Authority, Banks, Developmental Organizations, Financial Institutions, Water and Power Development Authority, Pak Telecom, Port Qasim, Karachi Port Trust, National Highway Authority, Railways, Steel Mill, Sui Southern Gas Company, Oil and Gas Development Corporation, State Life Insurance Corporation and other autonomous and semi-autonomous organizations.

I would like to give my opinion from a Bihari perspective. I graduated from NED University in Karachi and working in USA. First of all there is no credible source of this information how come writer knew they are Bihari. I think he count all Urdu speaking as Bihari. I know Bihari in Karachi do not constitute such a major presentation in any field. Population of Orangi Twon is almost 1.5 Million but they are not all Biharis.
For Instance in my 210 classmates in NED I know only 10-15 of them were Biharis in almost 150 Urdu speaking. Rest 40-50 were Sidhis who came in the university due to "Notorious" quoata system implemented by Bhutto and his successors continuously (Killing all merits in Karachi).

Those who said Biharis are not Pakistanis , I would say they are not Pakistanis either. I came to this country only 10 years ago and now I am a US citizen , these guys came 35-50 years back how come they are not Pakistani.

The quality of education in Pakistan in general and Sindh (interior) in particular are in big question.
How long can Sindhi speaking take advantage of quota system, there are finite amount of jobs in Government sectors but in Public sectors you have to compete on merit.
These are just urdu speaking you are competing in Sindh , If you go out of Pakistan , Lets say in Middle East you will have to compete with Indian Engineers and if you move to US or Europe than you will face fierce competition with Chinese, European and American Engineers.

My dear friends first of all you need to look into yourselves , It is obvious that the corruption has lowered quality of an Engineer graduated from Interior Sindh university.
Don't say universities in Punjab has same standard or lower standard, Two don'ts don't make a right.
These corrupt head of universities are bigger "Dakoos" than the one in streets. Blame your lack of knowledge to your professors not on Biharis.

You need to understand in order to compete you need to equipped well and at least well enough to enter in public sector.

Gone are the days when Sindhi speaking were creeping and Central Govt were paying them on their payroll (working or not) like a social security. We need to stop that Sindhis have to come out of their closet and work like urdu or pujabi speaking to get money. They are not above any other sect in Pakistan neither are they superb or better than Muhajirs.
Sindhis only provided land to Urdu speaking it is rdu speaking who built Sind and still building it.

So my fiends charity starts from home , how many of you graduated from any college or university have converted two illetrate person to litterate, remember you oath during your Matric certificate reception that you have taught two uneducated person.

God bless America; I am in truely independent country where different opinion are more than welcome , In Sind I spent 25 years and racist guys still thinking that they are more Sindhi then I was just because their Grand mother was born their.

Well Well I have read all the posts, nobody even ask this question "what is the validity of the document"? How reliable is the document, what is the source of the document ? Who is the writer of the document. You guys seem to have an utternal jealousy against Biharis. This is like you are keeping poison in your body and soul and it is not harming Biharis it is harming you.. Well done boys........

Now the next step is how many Biharis in Pakistan cricket team etc etc.

Ever wonder why Sindhis are not even in cricket team?

Come on grow up, its not only Sind where you can work it is whole world , prepare yourself for competition and stop creeping.

A sincere Bihari

At present, the mehran engineering university has better rating as compare to NED university. If you don't believe on such facts than just type "pakistan engineering university rating" in yahoo search and find out yourself.

But the main problems are created by so-called bihari mafia who totally controls the bp pakistan company. They created an image of sindhis that sindhi universities have lower standards and therefore all sindhi engineers and graudates have extremely poor standards. The bihari mafia continues to maintin these "false image" of sindhi engineers for next 30 years.

But ethnic biharis are extra-ordingary intellegent race of pakistan and therefore they are allways get jobs in bp pakistan. Such un-fair politics has also been observed by the urdu-speaking karachities and therefore bp pakistan company is commonly known as "bihar petroleum company". Urdu speaking peoples dislikes "biharis". They regret that they helped criminal minded & cheaters biharis to settle down in karachi city. While biharis repuations in India is well known to every one. Biharis in indian only do two things, rickshaw driving or male prostitutions. But in pakistan this criminal bihari mafia has succefully managed to create a "intellectual image of biharis"???? Are biharis intellegent???? NO???? They are cheaters.

The bp pakistan company (formaly Union texas Pakistan companY) is providing jobs to ethnic biharis.

Several things are eye-openers in your message below and in the list provided here:

Your are talking of race - bihari, punjabi, sindhi, etc. and not merit.
It is stated for a fact that engineers of races other than sindhi are employed heavily in a company located in Badin.
Biharis, people originated from Bihar India are predominantly employed in the professinal ranks of BP pakistan.
What this message does not address are the reasons and probably some relevant facts:

Is BP pakistan not practicing open merit and giving special preference to a particular race. If yes, then this must be criticized.
Are Sindhi engineers of low calibers? It is a wide acknowledged fact that people like to play the race game and the victim game. There are seats in the universities specific for sindhi speaking people or for pakhtoons or for punjabis or for others. If your forum wants to chastise BP Pakistan, then they must also chastise this quota system.
Most probably, the lower cader wrok force is overwhelmingly of singhi speaking people. It was not mentioned here though.
It will also be helpful as a comparison to look at the government sectors operating in Sind. I won't be surprised if sindhis are the predominant force there.
You must remember, companies or corporates unless bogged down by government policies and politicis, are there to make money. They will hire the best available talent. If singhi engineers have not proven themselves then they must work to elevate their image. This can not happen by throwing dirt at BP or other priviate companies. This is simple blackmailing. They may succumb to pressure for now but then as their profit will dip because of untalented people, they will either move out of Badin (or the area) or change their policies fo rthe worst.

It is, however, surprising that one race of people (biharis) are in a huge number. I am not sure if you are including all urdu speaking people into that category or these really are all biharis. There is no denial that in Pakistan, where chances are few, often people give preferences to their likes. This is wrong and requires a change of mindset but not of BP Pakistan only but of the entire system. If you look around, you will find that besides the private sector, there are not many job opportunities for biharis or the urdu speaking people in the country. If you complain about low percentage of sindhis and alleged patronaged in BP-Pak then you must also rasie your voice against the lack of merit and the prevalence of quota system and patronism in government institutes.

I am a strong proponet of merit system and equal oppotunity. I am also a strong opponent of any move to defame Pakistan. If your agenda disagrees with my believe, then pelase keep me out of your mailing list.

Sincerely.

I can't comment on BPs community developement program or other social activites. But as far as Human resources are concerned, Multinationals like BP higher a person best suited to them and they don't care about weather a person is sindhi or punjabhi. They will give him a job if he is qualifies enougy. and If you think that sindhi engineers are only offered a low profile job, It maby becasue sindhi engineers suck big time in academic credentials. There is a hell of a difference b/w an engineer from MIT USA and an engineer from UET JAMSHORO. Its better to get rid of defeatis attitude your beging denies something because of race. Its possible that you are denied that thing because you don't deserve it.

My Brothers,
Asslamo Alikum,
Your e-mail regarding above subject made me really sad. We are with you
and
you will find us always with you as Pakistani. We, the people of
Pakistan,
must fight for our National as well as local rights and it is always
commendable by all communities all over the world. I stress we are with
you,
all out to fight for Badin.
But at the same time, I would like to ask you one question and that is
"Can't we think of one Pakistan, a Pakistani nation - no matter if some
thing happens in Badin or Lahore or Islamabad?" I can produce a list of
Engineers and Others serving in Government Departments like Wapda,
Railway
and many other, all from Sindh, much longer than you have given in your
e-mail. But we do not think like this as you. We all are Pakistani.
Outside
Pakistan, believe me no one recognises us as Punjabi, Sindhi, Baluchi
or
Pathan. Moreover people like you - university graduates, must not think
in
that terms.
The problem is that after independance in 1947, no democracy has ever
been
introduced in Pakistan. Our so called political leaders (many of them
from
Sindh also) never tried to make Pakistan a true Jamhooria. They, greedy
uglies, no matter from Punjab, Sindh, NWFP or Baluchistan, always
filled
their pockets and did not look after national interest. It will be
going on
as it is, if we common people do not join hands and fight for real
Jamhooriat, as one body. This is the only solution to our problems.
Further
I shall request you to please see what your local leaders had been
doing for
Badin in past. Reject them-no matter how influncial they are, and come
forward with new blood - people like yourselves, you will find us with.
Thanking you.

Dear Sirs,
Thank you very much for sending me "The Thieves of Pakistan". This is an eye opener and, my brothers, we are equally astonished by knowing this great injustice which people of Badin are facing. As Pakistani, we strongly feel like being robbed once again by East India Company. Every one of us must open eyes and must offer resentment over this injustice to Badin people and to Pakistanis at large. We stand with you shoulder to shoulder. Please keep us informing.
Thanks & regards.

Sorry, I dont support your politics. Whoever is deserving should get the positions no matter which part of the world that person belongs to. Stop discriminating between Pakistanis. What is the purpose of calling Pakistanis, bihari, punjabi, sindhi or anything else? What happened to the unity of the people of Pakistan? Are you doing anything different by discriminating people into bihari, punjabi, sindhi, etc? What you should be doing is looking at how to educate and provide opportunities to poor people... not trying to provide them jobs based on quota system even if they do not qualify based on merit.

I don't know why I got this email. I usually delete and move on but after going through a few lines and reading the bottom line, I could not resist to comment. I went to Mehran some 30 years ago for two years - what a nightmare. I am sorry to say but many sindhi students had a very negative approach towards life. I was lucky to get transferred alive after two years of running for my life. Please get out of this self pity mode. Many sindhis have done fairly well once they got out of this mode of LAST name , CASTE system, and being proud of being SINDHI. It is such a comical idea.These big companies are making money whether they are in Badin or in Bahalpur. Poor have no value against these corporations. You see a lot of names other than your proud SINDHIs on this list and you feel bad. Work hard, get out of your comfort zone, compete with world and you will do fine. You gain nothing by encouraging ethnicity and promoting hatred against others who happen have done well due to thier own hardwork.

My Dear Friend:
I am afraid you do not have the correct information. I lot of guys that you have listed below are Sindhi speaking (I personally know these guys), which you have mentioned as Biharis and Punjabis. I would suggest you first get your record correct.

aoa
excuse me
this is not the injustice
BP has nothing to do with the ethinic group.
All the need is work, brain and hard work. if some one does not qualify the criteria dnt blame the ethinicity

Dear Brother from our home SINDH
Assalam o Alaikum,
I appreciate your work and efforts for the developement of Sindh. I will insist that the company must employe the local peoples as they meet the require qualification and experince. They must give profit share to local community. They must make developemental work in Badin too.
They must provide basic facilities to local population.
Kindly think also of PAKISTAN as the person employed are Pakistani not Indian citizen.
We are 1st Muslim, 2nd PAKISTANI and then Sindhi, Punjabi, Balochi, Muhajir, Pathan. If the company provide job to one tribe of sindhi brothers, then the other Tribe protest against them, what you think Dear brother?

Mehran University of Science & Technology is the only university of pakistan which is included among top 500 best universities of the world but its graduates never get jobs in the Badin oil industry.

Bp pakistan only offers Operators jobs to mehran university graduates.

bp pakistan company is full of ethnic biharis. Now Bangladesh goverment have granted bangladeshi nationality of biharis therefore ALL BIHARIS MUST BE DEPORTED TO BANGLADESH.

Having gone through these hatred messages to a an ethnic group, it feels that they are promoting discrimination within the country. These type of people always fighting with someone. Today with Behari, tomorrow with Urdu Speaking, the other day with Punjabi, and so on. They never think of unity, they never think of as whole nation, as a Pakistani. I don't even believe the list that they have provided. It won't be a complete list of people working at Karachi and Islamabad offices. And, there is a doubt about mixing of Beharis with Urdu Speaking. So, it is better to present the whole list, despite showing the names of certain people.

Come on, grow up guys. We are living in a competitive world. And the companies like, BP do not have any ethnic policy that we will hire Behari and Punjabi for senior positions and Sindhi for lower positions. It depends on your capability. How capable are you to perform the roles at the senior positions. You need specific skills , education, and experience. Besides, you need a competitive professioanl attitude. Sindhis fellas need to improve their soft and hard skills, as they are very much lacking in that area.

I have been living in North America and I have seen many Sindhis who can't even pronounce an English word properly. In the university, they were always asking for the help in their study. Many Sindhi fellas don't come to lead the group in class presentations because of their poor accent and personality issue.

For HEC University Rankings, it is a joke which doesn't depict the ground reality. It is pretty obvious that the quality of the students from Mehran University is not competitive in the global market. In general, they are producing fighters/garbage NOT the genuine engineers.

In just a single note, stop feeling jealousy to anyone and work harder and smarter.

A Pakistani.
