PUNJAB BACHAO ------------- SAVE PUNJAB

Vultures are circling Punjab to split it in pieces to establish their own fiefdoms

It is time for Punjabi’s to take a stand to save Punjab.

This website is established to refute all the flimsy justifications given by the enemies of Punjab to once again break up our historical land.  

Read the articles, news and other material provided on this website to learn about this conspiracy to divide Punjab and understand why we must stand together to defeat these conspiracies.   

Linguistically, Punjab is one entity. The regional dialects of Punjabi language smoothly merge into each other in their long journey from the borders of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to Sindh. Hindko of Peshawar, Potohari of Rawalpindi, Seraiki of Multan, Jangli of the intervening wilderness and the hard-core Punjabi of Lahore are understood, if not spoken, with equal ease across 1,000 miles. In short, language is no barrier to unity nor can it be a plausible ground for dividing the province.

This insane and asinine move for more provinces has to be stopped and blocked. Not for the sake of any province, but for the sake of Pakistan and its founding ideology.

In the past, nationalist and progressive Seraiki politicians and intellectuals with marginal support used to plead the case of a new province, but now they have been pushed into the background and the cause has been taken up by high-profile political leaders who see in it an opportunity of a life-time. The Seraiki province may not benefit the common people of southern Punjab the way it is being claimed, but it would certainly create prized new jobs of governor, chief minister, ministers and legislators along with a provincial bureaucracy that would mostly fall into the lap of the rich and the mighty, the moneyed and feudal class as is the case elsewhere in Pakistan.

In 2009, President Asif Ali Zardari, in a message to the Punjab Assembly, said he is against any division of Punjab, and Pakistan People’s Party will not let any such conspiracy foster. Also, the very next day, Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani ruled out any idea of the creation of more provinces, saying that it would open up a new ‘Pandora’s box’ of problems. It’s strange how, by 2011, PPP has come out as a strong supporter of the division of Punjab. Ironically, it is indeed a tradition here, to distort facts to gain short-term political mileage even if the long-term consequences are disastrous for the country and its institutions.
