Sindh was one of the last territories of India annexed by the British. Sir Charles Napier after defeating the Talpur Mirs of Sindh in 1843 at Miani and Dubba remained Governor of Sindh from1843-1847. After the departure of Napier, Sindh became a commissionership under the rule of a Commissioner-in Sindh within the Bombay Presidency. The unnatural amalgamation with Bombay Presidency and the extraordinary powers given to the Commissioner created hindrances in the economic and political development of the people of Sindh. This situation facilitated the idea of separating Sindh from Bombay Presidency. This article covers the thirty five years of struggle of the people of Sindh for this cause.
