Through this letter I want to make a humble request to both the print and electronic media of the country, politicians, news/current affairs anchors of both private and State-controlledTV channels, analysts, columnists, and to all those who read this letter that please stop writing and saying Karachi and in Sindh. By quoting such sentence, weactually give an impression toa listener anda reader as if Karachi is a separate entity from Sindh.For Gods sake have some sense. By saying and writing Karachi and in Sindh, we actually hurt the feelings of a particular dominant ethnic group of the Sindh province i.e Sindhis. We often hear many news anchors of private TV channels saying as it heavily rained today in Karachi and Sindh; "acomplete shutter down strike was observed today in Karachi and Sindh;"all the markets of Karachi andSindh are thronged with people for purchasing Eid items", etc.I ask all of them: Do we say Lahore and in Punjab, Peshawar and in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Quetta and in Balochistan? Then why we have adopted a strange phraseology whenever we discuss Karachi and the rest of Sindh? Why we misguide and misinformour all readers and listeners by uttering such sentence. Karachi was, is and will always remain a part of the Sindh province. We must change our attitude and approach when we discuss the whole of Sindh province including Karachi. By saying and writing Karachi and in Sindh why we easily forget that Karachi is an integral part of the Sindh province besides being its capital? I request to all that please in future avoid saying Karachi and in Sindh foritreally hurts to the soft ears of a particular ethnic group. ABDUL SAMAD SAMO, Karachi, August 30.
