SINDHI HINDU'S CONTRIBUTION FOR SINDH & IN SINDH
CHRONOLOGYREFLECTING SOCIAL, CULTURAL, EDUCATIONAL, RELIGIOUS AND POLITICAL ACTIVITIES OFMINORITIES DURING BRITISH PERIOD.
(During British Rule , that is from 1843 to1947, Sindhi Hindus played vital role in the development and progress of the Society. Cosequetupon the DIVIDE AND RULE policy of British Government, a few but very seriousdifferences also occured between Hidus and Muslims of Sindh in the fields of politics and religion.However, the role played by Hindus for Noble Cause cannot be under estimetd and ignored.This segment of our Society gave SindhColleges,Hospitals and Gardens.After the partition of India, majority of Hindusleft their Homeland, either by misguidance, or by fear of dark and unproctedfuture.By disownig their Motherland, they deprived themselves of the History and Historicalrecords.
Keepingin view the role played by Hindus and making the History of Sindh to someextent COMPLETE STORY, Gul HayatInstitute realised its Historical Research obligations to include the role ofHindus in our Research Project. You will find a lot ofmaterial/data/information on the subject/topic on this website (www.gulhayat.com). Such as Political parties,History of Freedom Movement ,their Social and Culturalorganisations etc.
Inthis initiate, we have applied SAMPLE METHOD to narrate the story. Though, alot of material/information/data is available on the subject/topic,but it isimpossible for a single man to complete the task single handed. Gul HayatInstitute and its contribution is my SOLO FLIGHT. Tomorrow, it will be amazingand unbelieving for our young generations to accept that only one man can dosuch a wonderfull job. I am happy that aspects of History covered by me arepart of our Untoled History. I am trying to pave way for further research.(Dr.Dur Muhammad Pathan)
