Placards of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other world leaders were raised at a pro-freedom rally in Sindh as protesters demanded the creation of a separate nation of Sindhudesh, ANI has reported.
In the protest rally people raised slogans demanding the creation of a new country of Sindhudesh and also urged world leaders like Prime Minister Narendra Modi to help them achieve the same.
As per reports, the protesters claimed that Sindh was part of the Indus Valley Civilisation and was illegitimately occupied by the British who then delivered it to Pakistan.
Chairman of Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz has been quoted as saying that, "Among all these barbaric assaults on its history and culture, and all these ages of occupation and dawns of independence Sindh has retained and maintained its separate historical and cultural identity as a pluralist, co-existent, tolerant and harmonious society where all the different cultures, languages and ideas of the foreign and native people have not only influenced each other but accepted and absorbed the common message of the human civilisation".
The rally was organised on the 117th birth anniversary of G M Syed who had called for a separate country for all Sindh.
