G. M. Syed (January 17, 1904 — April 25, 1995) was a Sindhi nationalist, leftist, revolutionary, writer and a Sufi. G M Syed was the first leader who proposed the bill for Pakistan in Sindh Assembly. Before, it Muslim league had presented resolution in Lahore and the full council of Muslim League in the leadership of the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah had unanimously passed 1940 Lahore Resolution, later known as Pakistan Resolution. The full council of Muslim league granted only three aspects of governance–currency, foreign affairs, and defense related communication–to a future federation and Sindh had joined Pakistan on the condition that the states (provinces) will be ‘independent states’.
Unfortunately, the 1940 resolution was not implemented in letter and in spirit — Sindh, Bengal, Balochistan and NWFP (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) — were deprived of all their rights and its people treated as slaves. Due to it, one province of the federation named east Pakistan or Bangladesh has already seceded from Pakistan. However, G. M. Syed became the first political prisoner of Pakistan because of his differences with the leadership of the country.

Roots of Such behaviors are multifaceted including jihalat to petro-dollars. Nizam Adl is approved by ANP government which is probably representative of NWFP people. They strongly are arguing in favor of that. Even amir-ul- momnin Imam of revolution Nawaz Sharif has endorsed that and has given his blessing for that
What ever is happening in Sawat PPP is not responsible for that. Story is long and recently U.S. has categorically blamed one agency for that. There is beautiful video on PBS – front line which shows how real rulers of Pakistan are dealing with that. I wish I had exact web address for that.

It is clear discrimination against Sindhis. Discrimination was in places since long but it was under table. Now it has been very clear and official discrimination against Sindhis. You can find these advertisements on Jung news paper.
