At the time of the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the Hindus were 80% while the Muslims were 20% of the population. Following the 1965 and 1971 wars, the Hindu upper castes and their retainers fled to India As a result, the lower caste Hindus were freed from serfdom and to some extent from discrimination.

However the area has the lowest Human Development Index of all the districts in Sindh Some town names you will hear are Mithi, the capital of the district and Nargarparkar which borders Indian Rajasthan and Gujrat so some of the languages you will hear are local to these areas.
