Ferment in Sindh

The fishermen community of Badin district in the southern province of Sindh in Pakistan is facing much hardship caused by the Thar Rangers, an auxiliary of Pakistan's armed forces. They have been deprived of their principal livelihood of fishing in their ancestral habitat. These fishermen enjoy enormous sympathy throughout Sindh, which indicates the discontentment of Sindhis with Pakistan's existing federal structure. This paper argues that if the grievances of the fishermen, in particular, and the Sindhis, as a whole, are not addressed properly by the government, the consequences may be horrendous.
