On the 117th birth anniversary of G.M. Syed on 17 January, placards of PM Modi and other world leaders were raised by the protestors’
at a pro-freedom rally in Pakistan’s Sindh. It was to seek support and to seek their intervention for the freedom of Sindudesh. Pro-freedom slogans were raised during the rally held in G.M. Syed’s hometown of Sann in the Jamshoro district of Pakistan’s
Sindhudesh is a demand for a separate homeland for Sindhis which emerged in 1967, under the leadership of GM Syed and Pir Ali
Mohammed Rashdi. They claimed that Sindh is the home of Indus Valley Civilization and Vedic tolerance to all cultures and beliefs, which was illegitimately occupied by the British Empire and was delivered by them, into the Islamist hands of Pakistan in 1947,
where tyranny and subjugation were furthered by Radicalization by the Pakistan Army.
Essence of SindhuDesh
Jiye Sindh Movement
Sindhu Desh is historical truth with
an ancient tradition, identity, and culture. Against this background, Pakistan Army for the last 50 years, decided to base its foundation on the false and untrue ideology of Radical Islam, irretrievably, as is realized now. Pakistan since long has inflicted
atrocities on the Sindh people, using its state powers. It has created unrest in this region in the name of religion and hatred towards all except Radical Islamists. People of Sindh have all the valid reasons to rise united, against the radical and corrupt
tyranny of the Pakistan Army, ISI, and other non State powerful agencies.
The national hero of Sind, Mr. G.M.Syed had started asserting the
separate identity of Sindh in the 70s, under the title “Jiye- Sindh Movement” aimed at preserving the cultural heritage, economic independence, and political personality of Sindhi.
Together with Baluchistan which ethnically is closely related to the Sindhi culture (The Brohi and Baluchi elements being strong ingredients of the Sindhi character), the Sindhudesh is a possible political
unit in the near future.
Voice for Rescue Grows
Many of the important leaders of the Sindhudesh freedom movement are based in European countries, due to targetting and persecution by Pakistan Army. World Sindhi Congress (WSC) founded in 1988, an advocacy and human right group active
in UK, Canada, and the US. The WSC is a global body of Sindhis. The WSC represents Sindhis in the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO), which was established in 1991 and is based in Hague.
Kehkashan Haider, a human Rights Activist from the USA, said that Pakistan betrayed Sindh right from the Partition days. Sindhi Muslims are labeled as Mujahirs and they were subjected
to untold atrocities and miseries.
“The people of Sindh are deprived of fundamental rights. India was partitioned due to a conspiracy
hatched by Mohd Ali Jinnah and the British Government. The situation of the Sindhi people deteriorated soon after joining Pakistan. The Pakistan Army behaved with us in an indecent manner in the name of religion. She said that we are all united for the liberation
of Sindhu Desh; we want nothing short of ‘Azadi’ from Pakistan, she said.
She said that Pakistan only bred terrorism in the name
of religion. Now we want to come to India. We are proud to be ‘Sindhi Hindustani’. She appealed to the Narendra Modi government to support the Sindhu Desh movement. How politically that blends with the government of India is something which is
subject to Politics, however the words do convey the finality, with Pakistan Army’s rule definitely stands rejected by Sindhis also.
Sahito, Vice-President of Jio Sindh Thinkers’ Forum, USA, said that the Sindhis have always been abused and terrorized by the Pakistani rulers. “Our voice is suppressed in local and international media like that of the Baloch, and Pashtuns. But
the people of Sindh have preserved their identity and culture braving the atrocities and tyranny of Pakistani rulers. This is the fight for our identity and culture” he insisted.
“Soon after its creation in 1947, Pakistan has become a headache for the world. It has emerged as the main sponsor of terrorism and India too has since long felt the pangs of this proxy war. The terrorists
have the full support of the Pakistan army and they are spreading terror in the world in the name of Islam. It is, therefore, necessary to expose Pakistan Army. With the breaking of Pakistan not only India but also Asia, Europe, and the rest of the world will
be free from the poison of terrorism, he said.
It is evident, that the demand is no longer of autonomy, but of independence from clutches of
Corrupt and Radicalized Pakistan state machinery, installed there by Pakistan Army.
“Among all these barbaric assaults on its history
and culture and all these ages of occupation and dawns of independence Sindh have retained and maintained its separate historical and cultural identity as a pluralist, co-existent, tolerant and harmonious society where all the different cultures, languages,
and ideas of the foreign and native people have not only influenced each other but accepted and absorbed the common message of the human civilization.” as stated by Chairman of Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz, Shafi Muhammad Burfat.
