The Parliament of Canada “rises up” to recognize the Sindhi language

“Sindhi is a rich and beautiful language,” said one MP.


The House of Commons of Canada stood up to recognize the Sindhi language and urged the Canadian Mission to Pakistan to create Sindhi language websites to remove barriers to communication between its government and the Sindhi people in their native towns and lands.

This was pointed out by Canadian MP Jeremy Patzer in the House of Commons in Ottawa.

“Today I stood in the House to recognize the Sindhi language. Canada can take a small but important step to preserve it abroad. This would strengthen relations between Canada and the Sindhi peoples of Sindh, as well as other parts of Pakistan. and the Diaspora,” Jeremy Patzer tweeted on Dec. 9.

He also honored Sufi Laghari and Mir Muzafar Talpur of the Sindhi Foundation in the House of Commons. Sindhi Foundation is a Washington-based human rights organization for the rights of Sindhis in what is now Pakistan.

Calling on his fellow MPs to give them a standing ovation in recognition of Sindhi as one of the ancient languages ​​of the world “and worth preserving today”, he said.

“Sindhi is recognized as an official language of the province of Sindh in Pakistan. It is not recognized as a regional language by the Consulate of Canada in Karachi, nor by the High Commission in Islamabad. The lack of recognition of the regional language prominent position causes a communication barrier between the Canadian Consulate and High Commission and the Sindhi people. This needs to be changed. The Sindhi people deserve consular services in their own language,” he said.

Jeremy Patzer, a Conservative MP elected from Cypress Hill, called on the Canadian Consulate in Karachi and the High Commission in Islamabad to continue to recognize Sindhi as an official language and provide services to people in Sindhi. »

Paying homage to the Sindhi language, he concluded: “Sindhi is a rich and beautiful language. It must be preserved.”

He thanked the house by uttering the Sindhi word “mehrbani” in conclusion.
