Dubious[edit]

The article states: "Mahbubani's parents fled to Singapore from Sindh, due to the partition of India, that left Sindh annexed entirely to the newly found state of Pakistan, leaving Sindhi Hindus stateless."

The last part is verifiably incorrect---thousands of Sindhi Hindus stayed after partition as Pakistani citizens. Although many Sindhi Hindus faced difficulties after partition (as Muslims did in India e.g. Hyderabad), these Sindhi Hindus were not rendered stateless. In fact, a Sindhi Hindu Rana Bhagwandas became a senior judge and the acting chief justice (in 2007) of the Supreme Court of Pakistan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rana_Bhagwandas) ... Pakistani Constitution requires that the Chief Justice must be a Pakistani citizen (http://www.commonlii.org/pk/legis/const/1973/8.html), so the assertion that Sindhi Hindus were rendered stateless is patently false. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.161.57.226 (talk) 06:56, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
