Sind (Sindhi: سنڌ or सिंध; Urdu: سندھ; Latin: Indus; Ancient Greek: Ἰνδός Indós; Sanskrit: सिंधु Sindhu) is one of the provinces of the Imperial Dominion of India in the British Empire, and historically home to the Sindhi people. It is also locally known as the "Mehran".The name of Sind is derived from the word Sindhu: the Indus River that passes through almost middle of the entire province. This river was known to the ancient Iranians in Avestan as Hindu, in Sanskrit as Sindhu, to Assyrians (as early as the seventh century BC) as Sinda, to the Persians as Ab-e-sind, to the Greeks as Indos, to the Romans as Indus, to the Pashtuns as Abasind, to the Arabs as Al-Sind, to the Chinese as Sintow, and to the Javanese as Santri.
Sindh is bounded to the west by Kalat, Las Bela and Baluchistan, to the north by Punjab and Bahawalpur, to the east by Cutch, Khairpur, Bikaner, Jaisalmer and Jodhpur, and to the south by the Arabian Sea. The capital and largest city of the province is Karachi. Most of the population in the province is Muslim, with sizable Hindu, Christian, Parsi and Sikh minorities.
