KHUDABAD, district Dadu, was the capital of Sindh for a long time during the Kalhora Raj. One of the Kalhora rulers, Mian Yar Mohammad Kalhoro, built a very beautiful mosque in the capital over 300 years ago. It is called Jamia Masjid Khuda Abad, which is situated on the road that leads to Sehwan Sharif from Dadu.
The mosque is beautiful and spacious. About 5,000 people can offer prayers at a time. When I visited it recently, I found its calligraphy and artwork to be very attractive.
With the passage of time the mosque got eroded and damaged. Considering the beauty, architectural design and historical background of the mosque, the Sindh government should carry out repairs and renovation of the mosque at the earliest.
