Sindhi-American Get Together in Houston- Sindhis continue to play an important role in promoting peace, democracy, and human rights

On Saturday, January 17th, 2009, the G M Syed Memorial Committee and World Sindhi Congress are hosting a gathering in Houston, TX to commemorate the 105th birthday of G. M. Syed, a leader who waged a nonviolent struggle against  fundamentalism and strove toward the emancipation of Sindh, territory  that is now a province in Pakistan. It is our pleasure to invite you to this event. Your participation would let Sindhis know that people around the world support their struggle for human rights, democracy and secularism.

For the last four years we have been arranging similar community events in Houston. In year 2005 Honorable Rick Perry, Governor State of Texas sent special greetings on this occasion. In his message, the Governor said:

“Sindhi-Americans continue to play an important role in promoting peace, democracy, and human rights. By putting thought into action, you have reinforced the importance of being civic minded, committed citizens, and I wish you continued success”.

Bill White, Mayor of Houston, proclaimed the January 16th , 2005 and January 21st, 2006 as “G M Syed Day(s) for the City of Houston.”
