    No RK was a one trick pony, he acted the same in all movies. AB did action, drama, romantic, comedy roles, the one true star of Hindi films.. most versatile after Yusuf Bhai. Nobody else was called the one man industry in India. Even crap movies of his movies made more money than most movies of 80s. 

    Overrated too. Yes he was great but for most bollywood folk acting begins and ends with yuchup kumar. Just like every legend ended up becoming a caricature later.

     

    Amitabh has done more diverse roles and experiments in his last innings that there is not even a comparison.

    All Islamic countries are pretty much like that.

     

    India made such a huge mistake letting muslims remain after 1947. A stupid mistake.

    The problem is not that. Few Muslims have greatly contributed to the development of our country post independence. The problem is the government policies of appeasement etc and fake pseudo secularism.

     

     

    Take Muslims in the USA for example, few of the newer immigrants might be creating problems but the ones born and brought up here for the most part don’t make a hue and cry about things and go about their lives. 
     

    In India and England and from what I hear these days in Canada it is the local populace that create the nuisance and this is mostly  due to the government appeasement policies and turning a blind eye to  a growing extremism menace.

    Government did take steps to rehabilitate the Sindhi Refugees. A lot of them got settled in Rajasthan. 

     

    Heck the main bus depot of Jaipur is colloquially known as Sindhi camp since the site before was a massive rehab camp for the fleeing Sindhis. 

    There is a Sindhi colony in most places like o said in Mumbai and Hyderabad, 2 places in India I am familiar with. I will he really surprised if our central govt did take the measures to rehabilitate them. I mean it’s obvious that they have made it on their own business acumen and work ethic but I will be really surprised if Congress govt. took steps to help them out

    Not true actually. Most settled in Gujarat and Mumbai at the time of partition  due to proximity from Karachi/Sindh.

     

    Also linguistically Kutchhi language in Gujarat is almost identical to Sindhi so they migrated comfortably in bordering Gujarat regions. Being a trader community many Sindhis moved to Mumbai.

     

    Actually Hindu Sindhis are among the most dynamic business community in India like the Gujarati Jains.

     

    They have emigrated far in wide to Hong Kong, East Africa and the Gulf region through the 60s and 70s in large numbers 

     

    Look they are some of the most industrious and smart business minded folk. no doubt about that.However I highly doubt the Indian govt took concrete steps to settle them in.

     

    They seem more like Jewish people who built their own destiny by controlling Trade ,Banking and Media. Maybe not at that level but to some extent.

     

    Anyway what I find is they are right up there when it comes to communities who have lost the most due to partition, however they don’t seem to have the same amount of animosity and the constant remembering of history that say the Jewish people have.

     


  5. During the partition, Bengal and Punjab were divided on communal lines.

     

    The Kashmiri Pandits getting displaced gets significant attention, maybe not as much as it should but it still gets talked about.

     

    How about the Hindu Sindhis though? Their entire region went to Pakistan. Wouldn’t they be the most displaced group in India?

     

    There is obviously USA (Ulhasnagar Sindhi association) :giggle: and areas like Sindhi colony in Hyderabad but I believe and feel free to correct me   this wasn’t any rehabilitative step by the govt. more like a group of Sindhi businessmen settling down in that area.

     

    However surprisingly most Sindhis I have seen be it in the media like Hirani and other Bollywood types or the ones who are my friends seem to be super liberal in their political views and very secular. Now look secular has become a bad word, there is nothing wrong in being secular but I am talking about being secular in the pseudo kind of way.
     

    Shouldn’t they be a little more bitter about what happened to their community?
