Title: Partition of India: The Case of Sindh Migration, Violence and Peaceful Sindh
Contributors: Salim, Ahmad
Keywords: The relative harmony among the Hindus and Muslims of Sindh – and its establishment over the centuries became directly at risk due to many traditional and non-traditional factors.
Traditional factors including the economic exploitation of Sindhi Muslim at the hands of Hindu moneylender arose after the British conquest and the resultant British Civil Code, which offered protection and prospects to the Hindu bania (money-lender).
These factors jeopardized the possibilities of continuity of non-violent social infrastructure of Sindhi people.
The non-traditional threats and devastated peoples’ lives – Pakistan
Social unrest and communal hatreds -- increasing poverty amongst the Muslims as well as other immediate threats to human lives from disturbances and riots.
True understanding of the constituents of the socio-political and economic fabric of Sindh – Pakistan
Another important issue in the history of Sindh was its separation from Bombay presidency, which left the Sindh Hindus very bitter because they thought that their economic and political interests would be at stake in a government dominated by Muslims thus increasing communal bitterness.
