For many years, Pakistan’s exploiting class including Urdu and some English media have been engaged in a malicious propaganda against Sindhi culture and language. First, they and short-sighted custodians of Sindh destroyed Sindh’s education system which was once envy of other provinces. Their particular assault was against Sindhi-medium schools that has ultimately resulted in the closure of more 7,000 Sindhi-medium schools in Sindh. This conspiracy has succeeded so much that many of Sindh’s middle class and upper middle class parents send their children to only the English and Urdu medium schools. Seeing the success of this conspiracy, the enemies of Sindhi culture and language have now extended their assault against Sindhi dress and other cultural aspects.

Spearheading this attack are the anti-Sindhi urdu television reporters and anchors that took cheap shots against President Asif Zardari, who wore Sindhi cap (called Topi) together with other elements of Sindhi attire. They were particularly ired because Mr. Zardari was seen wearing Sindhi cap proudly inspecting Guard of Honor in Kabul (Capitol of Afghanistan) on international TV stations. Their blatant attack against the 5,000-old traditions of Sindh has awakened the sleeping Sindhi intellectual and educated class.

The cultural stewards have thus far been hibernating in denial, gently pushing other Sindhis to abandon Sindhi leaders and look towards non-Sindhi political groups that have only shown contempt for Sindhi culture and the respect Sindhis have for all religions of the world.

Sindhis all over the world are going to hold rallies and meetings next Sunday (December 6, 2009) to celebrate their cultural identity and to renew their pledge to protect their culture and language. The cynics among Sindhis await anxiously if the renewed appeals to protect Sindhi culture and traditions would result in some tangible progress or as usual they will go back to their old ways, once the political juice has been extracted.

Nevertheless, let us join in the mass celebration of Sindhi culture on Sunday (December 6) and renew our pledge to protect our language, culture, and identity.

  1. when the whole world was wandering on the bloodiest paths of cannibalism, the great sindhis were at the sublime sumits of civilization. the are the first to have invented cloth. ajrak being the finnest example of art and craft has been in use in sindh for 5000 years. they gave the world wheel which has lifted man to the once-unseen hieghts of space. some how, ther is no doubt, sindh is really the mother of civilization. its a pity that sindhians have fallen prey to the poisoned ideology of islamist nature on which the blood-stained pillars of pakistan stand. the cannibalist dictatorship has made this nation broken apart. great social scientits and philosophers Dr. hegel and karlmarx have given allusions to the glory of this land of the great people. sindhis love beauty to such a greater degree that one can see even their gypsy in tatterd wears precious jwellery made of gold and silver. what a great sense of aesthetic beauty! belly empty, clothes torren, yet heavy neckless and ear rings the wear! while the .. are the cancer on the face of humanity.

  5. those people who are not knowing about there old culture are abusing the sindhi culture to wearing the sindhi topi by Asif Ali Zardari the president of PAKISTAN in the official visit to Afghanistan. These anchors are the enemy of Pakistan. They have not any right to abuse any culture. we the SINDHIS are the anchor of the old culture of PAKSITAN. Please don’t abuse the old culture of the sub-continent.
