Speaking to APP, Professor Lal Bux Jiskani said that culture of Sindh preaches unity and respect for all other cultures.

“The Sindhi culture aims to forge unity among all the people living in our country,” he said.

Professor Jiskani continued, “Sindh is the land of Sufi saints such as Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai, Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, Sachal Sarmast, Abdullah Shah Ghazi, Abdullah Shah Ashabi and others who are buried in this land of peace.”

“The message of all these Sufi saints was to forge unity, love, brotherhood, and affection with each other and to denounce hatred,” he added.
