Having run as an independent candidate, he joined the PPPP (Pakistan People''s Party Parliamentarians) following the 2008 General Election.The first time Gillani met as an MNA (member of the National Assembly) was in the 1988–1990 assembly when he represented the 144th constituency.In the 2002 General Election Gillani, then representing the Pakistan Muslim League (QA), stood for election in the 189th district and lost to then PPPP candidate Mian Mumtaz Ahmed Matiana.

Alam Gillani is a member of the Standing Committees on Environment and Information and Broadcasting.

Dr. HAMEER SINDHI, AND OTHER SINDHI & BALOCH LEADERS MUST BE RELEASED IMMEDIATELY Sindhi Thinkers Forum formally demands Mr. Yusuf Raza Gillani –Pakistan’s new Prime Minister– the immediate release of Dr. Hameer Sindhi , human rights campaigner currently under custody of Pakistani intelligence agencies. Dr. Sindhi was kidnapped on 05 AUG 2009 by Pakistani agency personnel from his residence in Karachi. He remained missing for about many Days and was eventually produced due to strong pressure of the Chief Justice Supreme Court. He was immediately arrested on fabricated charges and has since been in detention. The torture inflicted upon him during this time has severely deteriorated his health and places his life in danger. Jail authorities have failed to provide Dr Sindhi with appropriate medical treatment and refuse to allow his release on bail, directly disobeying local court orders. Due to this brazen disobedience and the conditions to which he is subjected to, STF holds Pakistani authorities responsible for the health and safety of Dr Sindhi The International community including US officials and major international media has asked for Dr Sindhis release.“If Mr. Gillani can announce the release of the Judges, he can also announce the release of Dr Sindhi. He has been granted bail on all charges, even when these charges were fabricated to begin with.” commented A R Kakepoto, the Organizer of US Chapter of STF. Furthermore, Dr Sindhis release by Mr. Gillani would prove his commitment to the ‘restoration of democracy’, which he has begun with the reinstatement of the detained judges. About The SINDHI THINKERS FORUM INTERNATIONAL is based in the SINDH.UK, USA, Canada, and Sindh and is one of the most prominent human rights advocacy organizations for Sindh and Sindhis. The main objective of STF is to create a better understanding within the international community about the persecuted status of Sindhis in Pakistan and about the Sindhi people’s struggle for human rights, including the right to self-determination
