Separation of Sindh from Bombay Presidency 1935, is considered to be the first step towards creation of Pakistan and the question before us is whether Sindh has gained, from aligning herself with Pakistan or it should have remained a part of Bombay Presidency leading to its becoming an integral part of India. Following the separation of Sindh from Bombay Presidency, the newly elected Legislative Assembly was the first ever such house of un-divided India, which passed a resolution in 1942, supporting the demand for Pakistan. Late Syed Ghulam Murtaza Shah, popularly known as 'G. M. Syed', was the driving force behind the passage of this resolution, and it is also a historical fact that after the creation of Pakistan, the same G. M. Syed was the first person to have lamented and regretted his role in the passage of that resolution. He had to remain behind bars, for the rest of his life in independent Pakistan. Perhaps his record of detention could be surpassed only by Mr. Nelson Mandella. In order to understand the importance of Sindh's separation from Bombay Presidency, we have to traverse back into the pages of history so as to know how and when Bombay Presidency was formed?
