SEMINAR ON RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE

 

Matiari district have a sizeable number of people belonging to the indigenous people of Sindh i.e. Bagri, kohli, Menghwar, Oad and others. These people are living in Sindh since centuries but now they have lost their old glory. They all are Hindus by religion.

 

These are very hard working people but unfortunately they belong to a religion which is minority in our country. So, they are not getting due respect in society. Their basic human rights are violated state, feudal landlords, religious fundamentalists and by all those who have power to do so. Though constitution and law gives them equal rights to some extend (constitution of the country has gave them exact equality to the religious minority to which these indigenous also belong) but society has no respect for their rights.

 

 

 

So, VISWA hold a seminar on the Rights of Indigenous People on the eve of international day of indigenous people on 9 August, 2012 in district head quarter Matiari. This seminar attended by representatives of political, social, religious and legal community belonging to Matiari district. Participation of womenwas great number.

It also chalk out strategy to bring this segment of society to the mainstream and include them in the decision making process as these are the most vulnerable part of our society.
