Reception for the delegates of SLF

Dr Hamida Khuhro's speech at the reception for SLF delegates

Dr Hamida Khuhro, a veteran historian of Sindh has said that Sindhi is an ancient and rich language, in which rich literature is produced, but people of Sindh have neglected it. She said this while speaking at a reception hosted by Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) in the honor of delegates of Sindh Literature Festival (SLF), at inner courtyard of Main Building of SMIU on November 5, 2016.
Dr Hamida Khuhro further said that it was a good sign that a huge literary program was organized in Karachi by some young people. Hence such tradition must be continued in the future also.
"Likewise the Sindh Literature Festival, Children's Literature Festival should also be organized in various citees of Sindh," she suggested. Recalling her days of early life Dr Hamida Khuhro said it was her uncle who was used to bring Sindhi books from Sukkur to Larkana, for her, as at that time they were living in Larkana. "I used to read books on history of Sindh and also of stories in Sindhi language, in my childhood," the great historian of Sindh said and added that in later days she also got education in Sindhi language that helped her to understand history, literature and culture of Sindh."
While praising the role of Dr Muhammad Ali Shaikh for up gradation of Sindh Madressatul Islam University, she said Dr Shaikh had organized a successful 2nd International Seminar on Sindh through the Centuries, two years back, so he should also take initiative in organizing programs on Sindhi literature and culture also.
