by Khalid Hashmani, McLean, Virginia, USA

During an informal meeting with the Minister of Education for Sindh (Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq), the question of non-compliance of private schools to teach Sindhi in the schools of Sindh was also raised. The Minister confirmed that the teaching of Salees Sindhi and Salees Urdu are mandatory in the schools of Sindh. He also said that people should report any cases of non-compliance of this rule promptly and the Ministry will take appropriate action against them immediately. The Minister further said that if any one has verifiable reports that any school in Sindh is not teaching at the minimum of Salees Sindhi, they should either call him or or the Secretary of Education Sindh, MR. Rizwan Memon or they can also report via email to secy.edu@sindh.gov.pk. Let us see if the present Government is serious about ensuring that current laws of Sindh with respect to the use and teaching of the Sindhi language are enforced.
