From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Sind Regiment is an infantry regiment of the Pakistan Army established on 1 July 1980. Prior to this date there had been no regiment in the Pakistan Army specifically intended to recruit primarily from the Sindhi population. It was created by the transfer of eleven battalions of The Punjab Regiment and ten battalions of The Baloch Regiment[1]. After 1989 the proportion of actual Sindhis in the Regiment was increased to over 50%. The Sind Regimental Centre is located in Hyderabad, Sindh, Pakistan.

The badge of the Sind Regiment depicts crossed Sindhi axes surmounted by the star and crescent appearing above a title scroll in Urdu. All ranks wear the Cherry Pink colour beret with a red feather hackle.

Previous colonel commandants of Sind regiment have included Lt General Salim Haider, who has served as the commander, I Corps, Mangla and as the Master-General of Ordnance (MGO).[2]
