27th International Conference on Sindh
October 31, 2015
27th International Conference on Sindh in London to be held on October 31st , 2015
In last two decades, the world has witnessed the spread of terrorism and extremism in Pakistan. In this conference, we attempt to explore the roots of this spread of terrorism inside and outside Pakistan’s boundaries. We will look into how the state sponsors the extremist organizations by funding and giving them direct and indirect support and using them in its proxy wars across the border.
State elements use the Islamic extremists to diminish the influence of progressive and pro-democracy parties inside Pakistan as well. They use them to eliminate and wipe out all the groups that dissent against the Pakistan’s establishment and to safeguards the Pakistani military’s interests. We shall also discuss and explore how to rejuvenate Sufism, which is prevalent in Sindh as an alternate way to the growing militarism in Sindh.
WSC is inviting academics, human rights practitioners, political and social analysts and policy
makers from inside and outside Sindh to submit conference papers and presentations to this
annual event. Submitted proposals must contain proposed title, abstract and brief relevant bio
of the author(s). All proposals must be sent via email to WorldSindhiCongress@gmail.com
before 7th of October 2015.
