Hyderabad

 

Introduction

 

Hyderabad Sindh, Former Capital of Sindh, the 3rd largest city of Pakistan and 2nd largest city of Sindh home to almost 2 million people is one of the oldest cities of South Asia. Hyderabad is a very unique city in so many ways and not so different from many other historic cities of the world in terms of fate and destiny.

Hyderabad Sindh has been on the crossroads of various warriors, rulers, and travelers and has benefited and suffered from time to time. Like Athens, Rome, Paris, Istanbul, Baghdad, Damascus, Delhi, Cairo, London; Hyderabad Sindh also stands tall and proud with full force of modern day hustle and bustle to tell you the story of its past, present, and future to every visitor. It is also Cultural Capital and Literary Capital of Sindh; A city of Artists, Artisans, Writers, Poets, Politicians and Activists. Nerve center of every mass movement in Sindh.

Hyderabad has a Glorious past and once it was known as PARIS of Sindh when its streets were washed with Perfumes and city lamps were lit by pure butter. But sadly it all ended when British took control of the city on March 24th in 1843 in a fierce and bloody battle of Miani under the leadership of Sir Charles Napier of East India Company.

The Great son of Hyderabad Sindh; the General of the Sindhi Army HOSH MUHAMMED SHEEDI SHAHEED fought fiercely with British till his last breath. British Army was shocked and very much impressed by his bravery the way he fought by carrying a cannon on his shoulders on the towers of Hyderabad fort. He was given official salute by British army after his martyrdom.

Hyderabad Sindh is a city of Three Hillocks (GANJO TAKKAR, Being the tallest one and famous one as a place of worship; Ganjo Takkar Sindhi words meaning Barren Hill) on the banks of Sindhu river (Sindhu is a Sindhi word for Indus) and the great Kalhoro ruler Mian Ghulam Shah Kalhoro founded the city in year 1768 AD. He named it after Hazrat Ali Haider the fourth caliph of Islam.  

He loved the city so much that he declared the city the Capital of Sindh and ordered to build a magnificent fort PAKKO QILO (Sindhi words for a Strong Fort) to defend the people and kingdom from all the outside invasions. The fort covered 36 acres of land surrounded by man made creeks and DHANDS (Sindhi word for Depressions) which were fed from the Phulleli Canal. Boats used to sail in these creeks. Modern day Khai Road, Tank # 1, 2, and 3 and DomanWah are the relics of those creeks. All the cannons from Hyderabad Fort were shifted to Lahore when one unit was imposed on Pakistan in 1955 and Lahore was declared as Capital of West Pakistan. Till this day Cannons of Hyderabad Sindh are kept in Lahore.

 

Previously in pre-Islamic times Hyderabad was called as Neroon Kot. Sindhi words meaning Place of Neroon ruler of that time.

             In earlier history of South Asia; Subcontinent was divided in two separate great kingdoms of HIND (meaning India) and SINDH.

SINDH had greater and closer contacts with Arabian Peninsula, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Greece, Turkey, and Europe than with India. Since then Hyderabad has seen various travelers from Persia to Arabia, faced Greek, Turk, and Mongolian armies, and finally British. Being on the crossroads Hyderabad Sindh has become an Archeological Oasis.

             Sindhu river or river Indus in English has ruled and regulated Sindh and Hyderabad socially, culturally, economically and politically. It has decided the fate of Sindh and Hyderabad in war and in peace times. Hyderabad and Sindh are so intertwined to each other that Hyderabad is called the CULTURAL CAPITAL of SINDH and it has always been the major transportation hub due to its central location in Sindh.

Hyderabad is city of Saints and Sufis as hundreds of shrines are scattered all over the city. Hyderabad has been influenced by all the great faiths from Zoroastrians to Buddhists, Hinduism to Jainism, and from Christianity to Islam between different periods of time thus becoming a very religiously tolerant city by nature.

After the death of Great king Kalhoro started the Talpur rule and Mir Fateh Ali Khan Talpur became the new ruler in 1789. It was a Golden time in the history of Hyderabad. Talpur rule lasted more than 50 years and ended in 1843 after British attack. Year 1843 is a dark period in history of Hyderabad Sindh when people lost their independence; Sindh became a British Colony and People of Hyderabad became slaves.

British destroyed the Hyderabad fort, Looted the royal treasures and burned down most famous and glorious Mirs Court and Palace inside the fort. Demolished most of the buildings around the fort to accommodate British troops and constructed military stores.

Royal family members and male princes were paraded naked on the streets of Hyderabad and were used as horses in carriages controlled by British Viceroy Charles Napier by using hunters. The crown of being a Capital of the emirate of Sindh was then transferred to Karachi. Hyderabad Sindh lost its glory, and people went into deep depression. No longer were the roads covered with perfume but they were covered with blood. It is important to note that the British held most of their Regiments and Ammunition in Hyderabad Sindh during the first war of independence of 1857 due to its central and very important strategic location.

 

Prior to 1947 Hyderabad Sindh was a combination of both Muslims and Hindus communities speaking the same Sindhi language and sharing the same Sindhi Culture.

Hyderabad was a great trading and commercial city and a big export centre for products made in Sindh. The city was flourishing with Parks, Water fountains, and Illuminating Lamps. The population of the city was based upon 25% Sindhi Hindus and 25% Sindhi Muslims. When partition of subcontinent and creation of Pakistan occurred in 1947 Sindhi Hindus expected to remain in Hyderabad Sindh because there was a very good relationship between Hindu Sindhis and Muslim Sindhis. When large waves of Muslim refugees from India started to pour into Hyderabad Sindh, Violence erupted again on the streets of Hyderabad. First massacre of Sindhi Hindus took place in very famous LONG BHAGHAT STREET. After 1843 Hyderabad went again into darkness & deep depression and local residents were shocked and confused. Sindhi Hindus were forced to flee leaving everything behind and Sindhi Muslims and Local Police were merely onlookers. Newly arrived refugees from various parts of India settled in the homes and lands which belonged to Sindhi Hindus.

After 1947 with the influx of people from across the borders Hyderabad Sindh saw its numbers increasing in population and even became the largest city of Sindh province of Pakistan for a while according to population stats of that time. Hyderabad all of a sudden found a new glory and regained its title of being a capital of Sindh again for a short while. Government of Sindh proposed the creation of two more suburbs named as Latifabad( in the honour of most famous and great poet-saint of Sindh Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai) and Qasimabad of considering the future growth and population explosion in Hyderabad Sindh. It really healed the wounds of Hyderabad Sindh big time.

It all happened so fast like seeing a dream and then it was all over. Karachi was declared the Capital of Sindh. Hyderabad fell victim to mean and dirty politics and became the most neglected city of Pakistan and was hit so hard that every day was a nightmare.

In early 1970s Hyderabad witnessed the first ever Language riots between Sindhi speaking and Urdu speaking residents of this city. City was drenched in blood and suffered a huge loss as its landmarks such as Mukhi House, Sindh University, Sindhology Museum, Sindh Museum and Sindh Text Book Board were looted and then burnt down into ashes. Laying a first foundation of ethnic divide in the city.

Then came the dark era of Late 1980s and early 1990s when Hyderabad Sindh was soaked in blood bath, ethnic riots, and civil war between native Sindhis and Urdu Speaking settlers.

Hyderabad Sindh became the Beruit of Pakistan and the city had never been the same again. Forever divided by ethnicity, deeply scarred by racial hatred like a modern day city of Beruit in Lebanon. It was 4rd time in a row that streets of Hyderabad were covered in blood after 1843, 1947 & 1972. Again there was a mass exodus of population. Native Sindhis have to flee from City and Latifabad leaving everything behind and settle in Qasimabad. It is the dark chapter in the history of Hyderabad Sindh and a black spot on the city.
