Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (Sindhi: جيئي سنڌ قومي محاذ, JSQM) is a political party of Sindh that believes in liberation of Sindh.


Jiyay Sindh movement was formed in 1972 by G. M. Syed with the original intention to secede Sindh from Pakistan and form Sindhudesh,. It was later renamed Jeay Sindh Mahz by militant groups. Sindhi separatists propagate the view that they suffer from disenfranchisement from Pakistan They think that Sindh in federal Pakistan goes against the rights and status promised during the Pakistan movement and in the Lahore resolution of 1940 according to which provinces of Pakistan were to be autonomous and sovereign and Pakistan will be a loose federation of various states.


Economic activities in Sindh generate 70 percent in country’s overall revenues and 6 percent in the natural resources including oil, fossil gas, coal etc. and barely receives 12 percent of its contribution in return. The contemporary Sindh nationalism strongly stems from water concerns. Musharaf government formed a national water committee in 2004 headed by veteran water and irrigation expert A.N.G Abassi. Mr. Abasi and his team after an in depth research in 2005 validated Sindh’s concerns and suggested government to avoid the construction of Kalabagh Dam. JSQM and the water rights movement is heavily criticized and opposed by the people belonging to north Punjab and Hazara area of Khaiber Pakhtunkhuwa province.


JSQM was led by Bashir Qureshi until his death on 7 April 2012, Dr Niaz Kalani succeeded him as leader. along with Syed Munir Hyder Shah Great Grand son of G. M. Syed. But after 6 months the family of Mr Qureshi claimed that they only had the right to lead ignoring the fact that G. M. Syed was against the concept of family politics and also by exploiting the constutution of the organization.
