Sindh: Bhanbore (Sassi -Pannu Legend) is under threat of rising sea.

Ancient city of Bhanbore:

# Where the Sassi-Pannu legend so integral to Sindhi culture is based, faces ruin as a result of sea intrusion.

# The city, located around 50 kilometres from Karachi, is also associated with Mohammad Bin Qasim and his landing in Sindh.

# Indeed, beyond Bhanbore, rising sea levels threaten other coastal areas in Sindh and are the result of declining water flows in the Indus and its tributaries. The issue of water reaching the delta areas of the Indus is not new. The protests against dams upstream of the river are linked to this problem which has had an adverse impact on farming across the area.
