Mission: The World Sindhi Institute (WSI) is committed to achieving human rights for the Sindhis of Sindh in southeastern Pakistan through a nonviolent advocacy, activist, and academic campaign. WSI brings together Sindhis of all religious and geographical backgrounds and their supporters in a proactive, progressive movement whose purpose is to inform others of the human rights and environmental atrocities occurring in Sindh. In order to increase regional stability in south Asia , WSI campaigns for the following developments in Pakistan:- Secularism (separation of "Church and State"); - Democracy (vs. Military Rule); - Demilitarization (civilians, rather than the army, should rule); - Decentralization (each Province should be "autonomous & sovereign", according to the 1940 Pakistan Resolution); and- Nuclear Disarmament (Pakistan must rid itself of Nuclear weapons)

This organization is in fact an Islamic terrorist group falsely claiming to be a human rights group. The director, Mr. Zahid Makhdoom, spent at least ten months in prison for terrorist activities.
