NAUNDERO: The male and female students of as many as 10 primary schools celebrated Shah Latif Day here on Tuesday in Town Hall. A large number of civil society members participated in the event, which was organized by cultural, literary, educational and civil society organizations.

Students showed well performance at the event by displaying their skills. Additional Commissioner, Larkana, Amir Ali Mirani was the chief guest. It was also attended among others by Mohammad Bux Katpar and Manzoor Mangi. The speakers termed Shah Lateef as Sindh’s universal ambassador and praised his poetry which has taught the lesson of tolerance and love as he always preached peaceful coexistence.

They said that he was the greatest among all the Sufi scholars and philosophers of 18th century. They said that Shah revolutionized Sindhi society. They said that Shah Latif was a nationalist with an international outlook as he did not only pray for plenty in Sindh but wished the entire world to be prosperous. But Shah Latif was much more than a sufi saint.

“Shah Latif can rightly be called the pioneer of the modern Sindhi language, culture and society. He is the spiritual fountain-head for the people of Sindh. His message of patience, endeavour, patriotism and universal love has transcended centuries of political upheaval and aggression and the people of Sindh have faced this exploitation with forbearance, non-violence and adherence to the faith, values and principle taught by him,” they added.

A little girl student Ramsha Mangnejo presented unique tableau which portrayed issues faced by today’s Sindh including tribal clashes, terrorism, bloodshed, and injustices with Sindhi common man, they said.
