The Sindh United Party (SUP) is a Sindhi nationalist political party that aims at rights of the Sindh people over their homeland in Pakistan. The partywas founded by former Deputy Speaker of Sindh Assembly Syed Jalal Mehmood Shah in 2006.[3]


The SUP was formed on 9 December 2006 at a political workers' convention at G.M Syed Edifice Jamshoro, in Sindh. Syed Jalal Mehmood Shah, a former deputy speaker of the Sindh Assembly, laid the foundation of the party. Syed Zain Shah is the current president of the Sindh united party.

On 3 November 2007, the dictator, Pervez Musharaf, imposed an emergency and suspended the 1973 constitution of the country. For the restoration of democracy, the SUP launched a series of protests across the country peacefully. The party has a firm belief in the power of nonviolence and has been the strongest advocate of religious harmony and separation of religion and state on account of its very foundations. The party is supported by the Indus Valley Civilization people's connection to Sufism.

In 2015, the SUP decided to launch a mass mobilisation and awareness campaign after Eid al-Fitr against terrorism, religious extremism and corruption in Sindh[4]

G.M Syed Centre[edit]

The G.M Syed Centre (Sindhi: جي ايم سيد عمارت) is the residence and office of the party at Jamshoro, established by Syed Jalal Mehmood Shah grandson of Saaen G.M Syed. Many researchers are offered food and residence in the world-notable library of G.M Syed established within the centre.[5] It is the place of learning for many Sindhi nationalists, scholars, researchers and common people.
