According to a popular legend, it was in 10th Century AD that Sindh Desh’s tyrant king from the Sumras dynasty called Mirkshah disturbed the religious harmony between Hindu and Muslim Sindhis by ordering all the Sindhi Hindus to embrace Islam or be killed.
According to a Sindhi website, “Sindhis have deep faith in God?Besides their Ishtdev Jhulelal. Sindhis also follow the philosophies propagated by other religions. Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism, Christianity all are equally important for them because they believe in ‘Vasudheva Kautambakam’ i.e. entire universe is one family. As such they worship all prophets, saints and great men; their worshipping places preserve photographs of all of them.” However, In Jaipur, Sindhis find themselves most comfortable with the tenets of Hinduism and Sikhism.
The spiritual message of the saint patron of Sindhis, Jhulelal, as understood by me is being said in a haiku: Seek in your own self. The God within speaks with you / to realize true self. The famous Sindhi spiritual guru Sadhu Vaswani has said, “Man must learn to walk alone. Live in fellowship with all, but in the heart within, know that you are alone. You belong to no one: no one belongs to you! Alone and empty-handed must you wend your way to the Alone.”
