Sindh vs Punjab, Is it natural, or exploitation? By Amar Fayaz

I have found some amazing similarities between Punjab and Sindh, Where I shocked to see that majority of our regional activists are aloof from these facts. Here I am trying to show some of these:

In the Indus valley area now known as Pakistan, an advanced Bronze Age culture rose up about 2500 bc and lasted for nearly 1000 years. Scholars do not know how it began or whether its people were related to those who now occupy Southwest Asia. Nomadic tribes called Aryans invaded the Indus River Valley, probably from the region north of the Caspian Sea, in 1500 bc. The Aryan culture became dominant in the area, eclipsing that of its predecessors.

»      Indus Valley Civilization (IVC) contains Sindh & Punjab, not included Baluchistan; the Moen-jo-Daro & Harappa are vital proofs.

»      In history, there were Great India and Persia, which had a large scope of sovereignty. The Baluchistan was a buffer state between Persia and India.

»      There is a Natural boundary between Sindh & Baluchistan to keep them safe and protect from each other, the same is not with Punjab and Sindh.  There is no any natural boundary between Punjab and the Sindh. Moreover, for the better understanding of the culture and language both have one mixed race nation called Siraiki. This nation is working a natural way of exchanging the parameters of Sindh as well as Punjab.

»      Sindh & Punjab have a same agriculture-based economy; this base is not with Baluchistan.

»      Before the Islam, Sindhis, and Punjabis both were religiously Hindus, but when we look at Baluchs, they were Kurd mixed old dogma believers.

»      The linguistic grammar and rhythm of Sindhi & Punjabi are same because of both languages born from ancient Sanskrit. Baluchi language came from Persian accent.

»      The folk music or literature of Punjab and Sindh is very same in against of Baluchistan which is totally different. Their musical instrument and note of ragas are totally different than Punjab or Sindh.

»      The philosophical approach & psyche of Sindh and Punjab was (and is) same rather than Baluchistan. Both had vast inspired Vedanti Mysticism (Sufism). Shah Lateef, Sachal Sarmast Bullah Shah, Fareed, Waris Shah, Mehr Ali are living legends of the philosophy of both states.

»      In past, there are multiple proofs that Sindh and Baluchistan fought on interests and lost thousands of people from both sides in different wars, but there is no any tiny proof has been found that Punjab fought with Sindh on any issue.

»      In Sindhi Society, the extremist acts like Karo Kari, robbery, theft psyche, murders etc are well gifted by Baluchistan, such sort of crimes are linked together between the inner Baluchistan even up to the nowadays too.

According to the geography if we classified the Sindh into two parts then we are finding following sub-regions:

1.      Right Bank of Indus: As agricultural issues, this bank is not well furnished and rich as a comparison with another bank. Mostly Balochs occupied in this bank, that’s why the bank is a topmost nest of criminals. They even smuggle currency, involved in human trafficking, kidnapping and harassing the other communities. Overall if we overview on this bank then we would find the majority of Baluchistan-based headmen, those are ruling over the conflicts of tribal issues, they make daily new issues for the murders of innocent people on the issue of tribal wars.

2.      Left Bank of Indus: This bank of Indus has good agricultural lands and almost peaceful atmosphere. The ruling headmen belonging to old Sindhi castes. The Baluchi influence is not much here, that’s why they live in peace and harmony. Today the history witness that most classical poets belong to this bank, who taught to live in peace and love.

»      The Punjabi settlers who came in Sindh since 1901 (mostly Punjabi came here before the 40's) had started the cultivating agriculture and shown their keen hard work with the land. Today they have built villages, live in peace and prosperity in the Sindh. They don’t involve in criminal practices, they have given their daughters to local Sindhis for marriages. And the other hands Baluchis have really made hell regarding in the peace and to maintaining law & order situations. They showed their own psyche in criminal activities. Today Baluchis people are not wealth handed labors as a comparison with Punjabi settlers.

»      In aspects of refuges race, Baluchis & Punjabis are both migrated nations who came here for the interests regarding with their betterment of lives. Punjabis started their own profession as farming lands and Baluchis had shown their own. They spread criminal activities and on the shoulders of black wealth they became headmen, politicians and achieved multiple trades. Today they are more than 70% holding local politics up to the higher level seats of assemblies, where since they are acting in their best sincerity with the Sindh and local settlers. The irony is that they are largely headmen of national politics in the Sindh. Syeds are second top numbered politicians of Sindh. Amazing is that they are also the refugee.

»      Today the Sindhi language is a lively language and according to the UNESCO report about the languages the Sindhi language is totally safe and will survive with vigor capacity in even next century as Punjabi too. But the Baluchi language and its accent are in the red zone. Today near about 26 accents of Baluchi language are died due to showing least efforts to save the language by their speakers.

»      The history of conflict between Sindh & Punjab is not much old but after the partition of Indo-Pak. In the partition, Sindhis have faced enormous difficulties and withdrawn its middle class in shape of Hindus who had migrated from Sindh. The second effect was fallen on Punjab who lost its left arm (East Punjab). But no any sign is visible in which we can see that Baluchistan had lost any identity or economic downfall in the partition.

»      It’s the very touchy sense in the grief of Sindhi labor, but it's fact; that Punjabis had taught the new ways of agro-technology and market concern environment to the Sindhis, but its very invisible any proof that Baluchis have given any expertise to local Sindhis except shortcut methodologies, trickery ways to success wealth.

»      Today if Sindhis are well elaborated in every field of life then there is partly pushes of Punjab; otherwise on the shoulders of Baluchis, Sindhi might be in the age of the tribal system.

Hence the question comes to our mind that in old times Punjab and Sindh had passed really golden age, then when and where from their fuss started?

I've found some amazing reasons that:

The history of current conflicts is not too old than 70 years before. It started from when Sindh separated from Bombay in 1936.

Sindh has to get rid of Mulla but Punjab has been pulling up the Mullas, due to its 2 nation theory.

Sindh has aligned Germany forces in 2nd World War in the shape of 3rd Hur Movement, but Punjab had totally aside with alliance forces with British Army. And when Britain announced the Pakistan and India as free countries, they went and given a gift the whole Pakistan to Punjab. And the issue arose from the starting day.

The riot or conflicts between Sindh and Punjab are not natural but the self-made from some politicians who never want to make a peaceful atmosphere here. Those politicians can be classified in following cadres:

1. US Foreign Policy Makers.

2. Punjab Opportunists.

3. Some greedy Sindhi Nationalists leaders.

Maybe I am wrong but here I have shared, whatever I’ve found!
