CONDOLENCE RESOLUTION SIR ABDULLAH HAROON

On 25th February, 1943, in the absence of the Honourable Member Shaikh Abdul Majid, the Honourable Leader of the HOuse Sir Ghulam Hussain Hidayatullah, moved the following resolution:

"This House places on record its profound regret at the death of Sir Haji Abdullah Haroon, MLA and old political leader and a philanthropist and its deep sense of services rendered by him to the country. Resolved also that the sympathy of this House be conveyed to the members of his family".

Sir at the outset, I must admit that I quite forgot yesterday to move this resolution, and I am sorry for it. The Late Sir Haji Abdullah Haroon was a prominent figure and one of the leader in the city of Karachi as also of the province of Sind. He was gentleman of All India fame. He was a merchant-prince, not only of the city of the Karachi but of the whole province, and I might say that he was one of the leading sugar merchant of India. he was a Member of the Karachi Corporation for a umbers of years. He was also a member of the Bombay Council for some years. Then he went to the Central Assembly where he did very useful work. He was then sent as representative of India to the Ottawa Conference. There he did very good work.

As a philanthropist also, he is being remembered throughout the province. He has contributed a large amount of money to the building of R.S. Udhavdas Hospital at Shikarpur. Educational Institutions such as the Muslim School at Hyderabad were being helped by him. Even here at Karachi he helped several institutions, such as Yatimkhanas and other poor institutions. His death is a loss not only to the Mussalman Community, but I think to the Commercial Community too. I am very glad that his place has been filled by his son, young Yusif, and I hope he will prove himself a worthy son of a worthy father. With these words I move the resolution.

Mr. Nihchaldas C. Vazirani also expressed his view as, "Sir I fully associate myself with this resolution. I had the honour of knowing late Sir Haji Abdullah Haroon personally and in various aspects of his life as a politician as well as a merchant. I particularly came to know him in his capacity of the Chairman of the Sindh Provincial Cooperative Bank's Board. There he displayed real commercial instinct and tact and raised up the status of the Sindh Provincial Cooperative Bank from almost a failing bank to a very prosperous bank. In fact when he was appointed Vice-Chairman, it was considered necessary for Government to promise some aid and give some loan to the bank. By the time that he served init for about a couple of years, the Provincial bank had investments to an extent that they did not know what to do with. They returned the loan advanced by Government and had also surpluses. He introduced so many new schemes with the sanction of Government, and the province certainly is highly obliged to him for giving all his time to an honourary work. I fully endorse the resolution and express their condolence to the bereaved family.

Mr. Dialmal Doulatram expressed his view as, "Sir, I had the privilege of coming in contact with the late Sir Haji Abdullah Haroon in 1915 when he went round Sindh for procuring funds for relief of the Turkish people in those days. I was then posted to Mehar. He displayed qualities of head and heart which brought him lots of funds in those days. He was always hospitable, and his benefactions are well known. I know that during his career as a merchant he employed Hindu employees and Hindu accountants, finding them always superior to others in keeping accounts. His fame, both in Sindh and outside Sindh, is well known. I fully associate myself with what has been said by other speakers and I support the resolution.

Chairman of the sitting expressed his view as, "I would like also to bear testimony to the qualities of the late haji Abdullah Haroon. I had also the pleasure of knowing him and had many talks with him on various political subjects. He was very hospitable and broad-minded. It is true that this loss is not only a loss to Sindh but it is a loss to the whole country. he was not a narrow nationalist, but he was rather an internationalist. he had the good fortune to become a merchant-prince, but he also had the good fortune and the goodness of heart to disburse and dispose of a lot of his wealth in charity. There are very few institutions that have not benefied at his hands. But he did not seek publicity for his charities. they were given quietly and cluostenatiously. I fully associate my community with this resolution that has now been moved, that the sympathy of the House be conveyed to the members of his family.

The Resolution was passed, all members standing then the House was adjourn for 15 minutes in memory of the departed soul.

RESOLUTION ON MATTERS OF GENERAL PUBLIC IMPORTANCE

On 3rd March, 1943, Mr. G.M. Syed moved the Historical Pakistan Resolution:-

“This House recommends to Government to convey to His Majesty’s Government through His Excellency the Viceroy, the sentiments and wishes of the Muslims of this Province that whereas Muslims of India are a separate nation possessing religion, philosophy, social customs, literature, traditions, political and economic theories of their own, quite different from those of Hindus, they are justly entitled to the right, as a single, separate nation, to have independent national states of their own, craved out in the zones where they are in majority in the sub-continent of India.

“Whereas they emphatically declare that no constitution shall be acceptable to them that will place the Muslims under a Central Government dominated by another nation, as in order the order of things to come, it is necessary for them to have independent National States of their own and hence any attempt to subject the Muslims of India under one Central Government is bound to result in Civil War with grave unhappy consequences.”

Walkout by Hindu Members

The Honourable mover of the resolution stated that his resolution was intended to convey the views and sentiments of only the Mussalmans of Sind and not of the entire population of Sind. The Chair also held that it was only the wish of the Mussalmans of Sind which was going to be conveyed by this resolution. In view of this ruling of the Chair that the Hindus had no interest in the resolution and that it was only the religion and sentiments of the Mussalmans of Sind that were to be conveyed through it, the following Hindu members left the House.

Mr. Nihchaldas C. Vazirani, Mr. Dialmal Doulatram, Mr. Ghanumal Tarachand, Mr. Partabrai Khasukhdas, mr. Akhji Ratansing Sodho, Mr. Mukhi Gobindram and Rao Bahadur Hotchand Hiranand.
