This Statelessness rendered Sindhis politicaly orphans in thier own country, we Sindhis have no single representatives, to call our own in Loksabha, Rajyasabha and state Assemblies, who can raise the issue concerning Sindhis on the floor of the above houses. In absence of any representatives, Sindhis are deprived of their legitimate Rights of quality at par with other citizens of the country.
