Hosh Muhammad was born in 1801. Before joining the army, he worked at the residence of Talpur rulers.
The historical mausoleum of Hosho Sheedi is in Dubee, a small village approximately 10 kilometres from Hyderabad. It was built to pay tribute to the war martyrs and was declared a heritage site. The building currently needs maintenance and restoration. It is a historical place of Sindh which is neglected by government and community.
