About

It is our aspiration to indulge in a conversation with others - Sindhis and non-Sindhis - about Sindh as a living, breathing, vibrant, vigorous, multi-dimensional, complex society. This is in direct retaliation to the dominant discourse on Sindh that tends to be about various versions of ‘Sindh - the cardboard cut-out’.

Sindhiyat is a non-religious, a-political platform.
