G. M. Syed a pioneer of Sindh rights movement

Saeen G. M. Syed, a visionary leader who pioneered the Sindhi freedom movement, remains a beacon of the Sindhi people’s struggle for national self-determination. He was repeatedly detained and imprisoned by Pakistani authorities, spending more than thirty years without trial or ever being charged. He died in custody in 1995. The Amnesty International adopted him as a Prisoner of Conscience. Mr. Syed wrote extensively on Sindhi identity, history, and political conditions in Sindh. His views continue to inspire Sindhi writers, poets, political and civic leaders, and social and religious activists. He is widely respected for his forthrightness, courage, simplicity, and insight-fulness.

One thought on “G. M. Syed a pioneer of Sindh rights movement”

  1. Role of G.M.Syed can not be denied. He gave Sindhi people awareness. He introduced Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai as a National & International Poet. G.M Syed though made many mistakes being a human being, but his contribution to consolidate the Sindhi Nation is ever lasting. Syed gave the progressive concept of Sindhi Nationalism.
    On the eve of his birthday we sindhis must follow his teachings and make ourselves a very strong nation, which will be a real and memorable celebration of his birthday.
