PTV – Not a single Sindhi artist was given a representation in the Capital of Sindh

by Mohammad Ali Mahar, Austin, TX, USA

..Recently, Pakistan Television (PTV) had its 14th awards ceremony in Sindh capital, Karachi. Munnoo Bhai, a Punjabi liberal columnist, had to write a column in Jang, protesting why when Punjabi, Baluchi, and Pushtoon culture and music were given ample representation, not a single Sindhi artist was given a chance in the whole program. Needless to remind that all the top posts in PTV are held by the current government’s nominees. List is long. In Sindhi they say: Meeran khe ghar maan laggee. In urdu: iss ghar ko aag lag gaee ghar ke charagh se. PPP was long considered last hope for Sindhis in Pakistan framework. Does this mean that we need to start looking somewhere else now?

  1. Obviously, us Sindhis need to look elsewhere for representation. PPP wara asan sabin khay bewaqoof banayin paya. The PPP doesn’t care about any particular race as such. Nevertheless, they politick in the name of Sindh because they don’t see any other way around. They are motivated by a uniquely personal agenda…. like every government that Pakistan has seen.
