I had the opportunity to participate in a few seminars held in the National University of Modern Languages (NUML) and also in the International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI). I was pleasantly surprised to see departments of various Pakistani languages including Punjabi, Balochi, Pashto, Seraiki and others functioning there but to my utter disappointment both these universities neglected Sindhi language. Indeed, a great language; a language of rich culture, history, heritage, wisdom and philosophy, it is not only spoken in Sindh province but also in Balochistan and Seriaki belt of Punjab. Sindhi has a vast vocabulary and a very old literary tradition. It produced writers in all genres of literature including prose and poetry. It is, indeed, unfair to neglect such a beautiful language.
