SANA supports the national languages' amendment bill
Sindhi Association of North America (SANA) welcomes and fully supports the Constitutional Amendment Bill presented by MNA Abdul Mujib Pirzado in the National Assembly to declare Sindhi, Punjabi, Siraiki, Pushto and Balochi as national languages of the country. A statement issued in USA today said that the amendment is a step in the right direction and would fulfill a longstanding demand of the people of the four federating units of Pakistan.
SANA feels that the five languages spoken by the majority of people in Pakistan should get their rightful place in the country and the government should provide necessary funding and infrastructure for the preservation and promotion of these languages.

"The Executive Council (EC) and Members of Sindhi Association of North America (SANA) are shocked, deeply grieved and condemn in the strongest terms the cold blooded murders of:
1. Peaceful participants of‘Muhabat-e-Sindh’ (Love of Sindh) rally
2. Muzaffar Bhutto, central secretary general of Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz (JSMM)
The first incident was obviously perpetrated by anti Sindhi criminal elements, being patronized by the current government, their allies and the secret agencies of Pakistan. These murderous barbarians systematically gunned down unarmed demonstrators, including women and children, in broad day light.
