Sind Province (1936–1955)


The territory was annexed by the Bombay Presidency of British India in 1843, following a British Indian conquest led by then Major-General Charles Napier[1] in order to quell the insurrection of Sindhi rulers who had remained hostile to the British Empire following the First Anglo-Afghan War. Napier's campaign against these chieftains resulted in the victories of the Battle of Miani and the Battle of Hyderabad.[2]

The Sind Division was separated from the Bombay Presidency on 1 April 1936 and the region became the Sind Province.[3]
