He was also a prolific author of more than 40 books on various subjects, such as literature, politics, prison diaries, culture and poetry. He was jailed for more than 11 years for his political activism and was declared as a prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International in 1981.
One of his contributions to Sindhi literature and culture was his translation and compilation of Sindhi books from other languages. He translated works of Mao Zedong, Che Guevara, Lenin and others into Sindhi. He also compiled books on Sindhi history, folklore, poetry and resistance movements. Some of his notable Sindhi books are:

Rasool Bux Palijo was a visionary leader and a champion of Sindhi rights and identity. He inspired generations of Sindhis to fight for their political, economic and cultural emancipation. He was also a bridge between Sindh and other oppressed nations of Pakistan, such as Balochistan, Pashtunistan and Gilgit-Baltistan. He died on 7 June 2018 in Karachi at the age of 88.However, the Sindhi people also face many challenges in the contemporary world. Some of these are:
Migration and displacement: The Sindhi Hindus who migrated to India after Partition faced difficulties in settling down and preserving their culture and language. Many of them were scattered across different states and cities, and some even moved abroad. The Sindhi Muslims who stayed behind also faced migration pressures due to the influx of Muhajirs (Muslim immigrants from India) who settled mainly in Karachi and other urban areas of Sindh. The Muhajirs also faced discrimination and violence from the native Sindhis and other ethnic groups in Pakistan. [^1^] [^2^]
Political marginalization: The Sindhi people have been politically marginalized in both India and Pakistan. In India, they do not have a separate state or a reserved quota in education and employment. They also face linguistic and cultural assimilation pressures from the dominant Hindi-speaking majority. In Pakistan, they have been dominated by the Punjabi and Urdu-speaking elites who control the federal government and the military. They also face economic exploitation and environmental degradation due to the unequal distribution of water resources and development projects in Sindh. [^2^] [^3^]
Cultural erosion: The Sindhi people have been losing their cultural heritage and identity due to various factors. Some of these are: the decline of Sindhi language and literature due to lack of patronage and promotion; the loss of Sindhi art, music, folklore and architecture due to modernization and globalization; the dilution of Sindhi values and traditions due to religious extremism and sectarianism; and the fragmentation of Sindhi community due to migration and diaspora. [^2^] [^3^]
Despite these challenges, the Sindhi people have also shown resilience and creativity in preserving and promoting their culture and identity. They have formed various organizations, associations, forums and networks to foster solidarity and cooperation among themselves. They have also contributed to various fields of knowledge, science, arts, commerce, politics and social service in both India and Pakistan as well as abroad. They have also maintained their links with their ancestral land through pilgrimage, tourism, trade and philanthropy. [^2^] [^3^]
The Sindhi people have a rich and diverse history that spans over centuries and continents. They have witnessed many upheavals and transformations in their society and polity, but they have also adapted to changing circumstances and opportunities. They have a unique culture that reflects their syncretic and pluralistic ethos. They have a vibrant diaspora that connects them with different parts of the world. They have a legacy that deserves recognition and respect. 061ffe29dd
