Mir Muhammad Bux Talpur

Mir Muhammad Bux Talpur – a historian, scholar, politician, and social worker

Mir Muhammad Bukhsh Talpur (or Mir Muhammad Bukhsh Talpur) was the second son of Mir Abdullah Khan Talpur. Besides being a politician, he was a great scholar, historian, and author of many books and research papers. His book, “Tarikh-i-Miran-i-Sindh” is the most authentic source of the history of Talpur Mirs, especially of the Mankani branch of Talpurs. It was this book by him which inspired the author of this web site to start compiling profiles of all important Talpurs with historical background in the English language for awareness to the non-Sindhi people around the world, after many demands from various parts of the world by email contacts, asking about information.

Mir Muhammad Bux Talpur was also a member of the Sindh Historical Society, (from 28.021944).​(Pathan)​

He donated to the Sindh Museum Hyderabad a substantial number of objects of the historical importance of the Talpur family and a substantial number of books to the Institute of Sindhology, Jamshoro.

This is just a brief note about him. A comprehensive profile about him, including about his political career and scholarly pursuits would be posted soon. His research article about Sher-i-Sindh Mir Sher Muhammad Talpur, published in Sindhi periodical, Mehran, has been scanned and web-posted on this Website.
