Ethnic Problem of Sindh

Sindh is facing hostage like situation in the hands of 10% population which stills claims to be U.P. WALAY, C.P. WALAY. Here is an analysis of Sindh population and its inhabitants. The Population of Sindh is divided in 60% Sindhi and 40 Non- Sindhi inhabitants. Out of 40% Non- Sindhis, 5% are Pathans, 10 % Punjabis and 25% are Muhajirs or settlers who migrated at the time of partition and after wards. The settlers(Muhajirs) can further be divided on the basis of ethnicity as 5% are Gujrati,10 % Rajisthani and 10% belongs to U.P and C.P areas. Its a fact that Sindh has peculiar history and civilization which is recognized worldwide as Indus Valley Civilization. The Sindhi culture and language absorbed every other contributing culture in it and the new comers to Sindh soil got merged like its own inhabitants. We have a recent example that in 1901 Nara Canal and in 1932 Sukkur Barrage lands were allotted to Punjabi settlers in Rural Sindh aiming to increase CULTIVATING area of Sindh. With the passage of time, those Punjabis adopted Sindhi language and culture and they are no more Punjabi now but can be termed son of Sindh soil. So with this Sindhi population increases from 60 % to 65%. While in Karachi, the ratio of Punjabi Pathan population is also 5% each of the total population of Sindh. Although, these Punjabis and Pathans settled in Karachi at a much later stage but they feel comfortable with Sindhi culture irrespective of U.P and C.P Gunga Jumna culture which is supposed alien by these Punjabis and Pathans. So the goodwill between Sindhis and Punjabi, Pathans living in Karachi makes them closer and the Punjabis and Pathans in Karachi keep a safe distance from Gunga Jumna culture naturally. Now come to 25% population consisting of Muhajirs which are comprised of Gujrati, Rajisthani and U.P and C.P areas. Out of 25% Muhajirs, 5% are Gujratis .The Gujrati faction of Muhajirs is culturally close to Sindhis as they are geographically neighbors and their culture and traditions have strong impacts on each other. But sad enough that these Gujratis feel proud and easy to be in lined with Muhajirs of U.P and C.P just because they are businessmen and are bit afraid of agrarian culture of Sindh. Interestingly, Sindhis dont consider them settlers or alien to their land and now Gujratis too want to come out of the grip of Gunga Jumna culture. With addition of 5%

Gujratis, one can assume that 80% of Sindh population is coherent and love to live peacefully, with same arguments. Rajisthani 10% proportion of settlers too is geographically, socially and culturally more closer to Sindhis then Gunga Jumna culture. In Hyderabad,80 % settlers belong to Gujrati and Rajisthani faction of settlers while proportion of U.P and C.P CULTURED PEOPLE IS BELOW 20% .But interestingly, the leadership of urban Hyderabad revolves always in the hand of UP, C.P people just because the cleaver policy by which they portray the Sindhis an ENEMY OF SETTLERS. The start of Muhajir ethnic politics was 1985. By the time, Punjabis and Pathans living in Karachi and Sindh have clearly recognized the reality of Muhajir politics. These people know now that after 64 year, Muhajirs of UP, CP didnt change their mentality and have become a blackmailing force in Sindh as well as at National, level. Its a fact that there is no collision between Sindhis and cultures of Gujratis and Rajisthanis, just like Punjabis and Pathans. So all these ethnicities never felt hostile to each other but lived and prospered peacefully and honourably. The million dollar question is that why 10% so called Muhajirs from UP, CP want to make hostage all Sindhis as well as other Nations who live in Sindh peacefully!!!!!!
