In this book dealing with religions and its territories in South Asia and beyond, two articles (French language) focus on Sindh and Sindhis. The first one is about Sufism in Sehwan Sharif (by Rémy Delage) and the second one about Sindhi Hindus settled in India (by Michel Boivin):
Boivin, M. “Migration and Sufism among Sindhi Hindus of India”, pp. 275-302.
“In 1947, most of the Hindus living in Sindh left the province to settle in India. Surprizingly, they were not vey wholheartedly welcomed by local Hindus who claimed they were “half-Hindu, half-Muslim”. Such a statement was mainly the result of the devotion the Hindu Sindhis had for Sufi saints from Sindh. Furthermore, the Hindus had transferred to India a number of darbars, which retained direct links with the “parent companies” located in Pakistan. This paper assumes that the transfer to India of these Sufi cults has played a role in the process of appropriation of these new territories where the Sindhi Hindus settled. The argument is based on a case study, that of darbar of Sa’in Rochaldas, which is located in Ulhasnagar near Mumbai.”
