The Pakistani press has no problem keeping the consulates in Karachi and Lahore. But now that the US is taking an interest in disbursing billions of dollars in education and development assistance funds directly to Sindhi areas, they are screaming against US consulate in Sindhi area, calling it “suspicious”. A consulate in Sakharu should a…lso help Sindhis get visas and improve cultural exchanges, as I have heard that the Pakistani staff in the cities is sometimes hostile and biased against their cases. For Sindhis, it would be a very welcome move to have a consulate in Sakharu, and it will help the US understand the Sindhi perspective, thus improving relations with U.S.
