A second Sindhi exodus?!

By FEROZE A URSANI, Swansea, IL, USA

Mr Nizamani, in his unique subtle way, has posted a piece which should wake us up to the reality: Has a second Sindhi Hindus exodus already begun?

When MLK delivered his historic speech in the famous Riverside Church in NY, Beyond Vietnam: A Time To Break Silence, he opened by voicing his agreement with the Clergy and Layman Association’s Executive Council Resolution, which started with “A time comes when silence is betrayal”.

I believe for us Sindhis’ our time has come when silence is betrayal. Please speak up, write, plead, cajole, demand, do whatever you can; to try and stem this exodus. We lost our limbs in 1947; let’s not loose our torso and soul now!

Holi and Rangapanchami function in Hyderabad, Sindh, attended by thousands of Sindhi Hindus

by Bhagwandas Advocate, Hyderabad, Sindh
Last night was a memorable night for me. There was a Holi and Rangapanchami function in Hyderabad, Sindh. It was
attended by thousands of Sindhi Hindus of different parts of Sindh. It was presided by Madam Sayeda Shahla Raza speaker Sindh Assembly and chief Guest was Ayaz Latif Palijo advocate and guests of honor were Dr Dolat Ram, from Manchester, Dr Versi Mal, Ramesh Kumar Gupta, Advocate General Sindh Yousif Leghari and Naz Sahto of KTN.
Believe me I can not express my feelings about one breathtaking speech. When Advocate Ayaz Latif Palijo came everything changed. He said like all Jews, Muslims and Christians there are two types of  Hindoos those who are considering them shudh and everybody else as neech and shooder,.. running after permits, contracts and licenses of liquor shops, flourmills and fertilizer agencies, least about their collective rights and future of their motherland. But there is another class of Sindhi Hindus, the true sons and daughters of this soil. The followers of the mystic and cultural values of Mohan Jo Daro, Bhnabhoor and Kot Deji, of Shah Latif and Sachal and of Kanwar Bhagat, Jeevni Bai, Bhagat Kabeer, Meera Bai, Bhagwanti Nanwani, Kamla Keswani,Kaan Motihar, and Saami, the admirers of writings and courage of A J Uttam, Popti Heeranandani, Mohan Kalapna, Haree Dilgeer, Kirat Babani, Sundir, Susheela Mahtani, Narayen Shyam, Ashok Motwani, Veena Shringi, Heero Thakar,Dayal Motwani, Laxman Koomal, Perso Gaidwani, Ghanshyam Prakash, Ramesh Kuteja and Gobind Malhi, those who fought against British imperialism in the shape of Rooplo Kolhi and Hemon Kalani. He said they are continuity of those protectors and vanguards of their soil who defended their county like Raja Daahir.
