Qasimabad Profile

10 Jun

Qasimabad is named after the Arab conqueror who invaded Sindh, Muhammad Bin Qasim. It was formed as an extension to the city of Hyderabad to occupy migrants from across the border after the 1947 partition of the Sub-Continent, alongwith the town of Latifabad.

The locals that occupied the town at its inception were ethnically of a mixed population but as the city experienced its worst ethnic riots between Sindhis and Mahajirs in the 1980’s, the city was divided into Sindhis occupying the town of Qasimabad and the Mohajirs settling down in Latifabad. And the city was divided forever on the basis of ethnic diversity.

Qasimabad has a large concentration of Sindhi speaking people, known as the Sindhis. Although it was formed with the town of Latifabad, it does not follow the numbered unit system for that town, but instead settles with the block system.

The town constitutes of the eastern part of the Hyderabad city and houses two of the biggest schools in the city, Beaconhouse School and St.Bonaventure’s School,along with another popular school,The City School and Eden Grammar School(Nowadays on Top).

With people, mostly Sindhi, occupying this region, the practice of Sindhology or the study of Sindh is more pronounced in this region than others. There are two museums celebrating the treasures of its Sindhi cultural values and traditions present in this town, the Institute of Sindhology Museum and the Sindh Museum.

    qasimabad is the rapidly growing talqua of historiclly rich city of sindh. it is sad to see that people living in this area are still ignorent of their rights.local govt of hyderabad clearly ignores the accountability of those responsible for this newly devloping area.What is required is that civil society should be strong enough to make local govt accountable for lack of facilites.overall performance of district govt hyd;should be praised but talqluka wise performance undermines it.
