- Theft of water from River Indus and building of mega dams and illegal canals at upper riparian resulting in deprivation of Sindh from irrigation water and destruction of the Indus Delta.

- Forced Islamization and denial of indigenous cultures and secular Sufi traditions.
- Direct or indirect military rule or ‘governor rule’ throughout 63 years.
- Manipulation of population census figures reducing Sindh’s indigenous population into minority
- The construction in Sindh of the largest military cantonments in Asia.
