Background and Current Challenges
Sindhi nationalist organizations have played an important role in the context of Sindhi rights. They began their work inspired by their urge to preserve of Sindhi identity and protect Sindhi language. They are now engaged to safeguard Sindh ownership of its natural resources, oppose unjust NFC award and secure water rights. It is because of their hard and good work that even the federalist parties are now forced to talk about provincial autonomy and provincial rights.
