Script and Alphabet of Sindhi language: A review

Sindhi is one of the ancient languages of the world. It has its own alphabet and script. Sindhi language has developed itself and changed into today's script. From Time to time, changes and reforms were made for the betterment. It is not true that Sindhi alphabet was developed by British Rulers. Before British rule, Persian and Arabic were the official languages of Sindh. But in Madrasas and schools or in seminaries Sindhi language was the medium of instructions. Apart from that Sindhi language was being written in Devanagari, Gurmukhi, Hut wanki, Khojki, Gujrati and Khudawadi script.
