London: Press release – World Sindhi Congress WSC is deeply concerned at the grave historical threat posed to Sindhi people resulting from migration of a large number of people to Sindh resulting from ongoing conflict in Malakanad region of Pakhtunkhuwa. Although, WSC sympathises with the displaced people, however, we see this as a deliberately created crisis and a .. design .. as a move to seriously hurt the long-term historical rights of Sindhi people. If these people have to be settled in camps until the conflict is resolved then why to settle them 1400km away. WSC believes that most appropriate, cost-effective and politically least challenging way will be to settle them in their own land. Their settlement in Sindh will have serious concerns and consequences particularly in the backdrop of the fact that Sindh is already an area with one of the highest immigrant population proportion in the world.
