The town had a population of about 315,000 at the 1998 census, of which 97% are Muslim and include several ethnic groups - Muhajirs, Punjabis, Sindhis, Kashmiris, Seraikis, Pakhtuns, Balochs, Memons, Bohras and Ismailis.

Trade and industry
The port of Bin Qasim was built in the 1970s to relieve pressure on the Port of Karachi and is today the second largest port of Pakistan. The port is surrounded by a large industrial area which includes the Pakistan Steel Mills complex in Gulshan-e-Hadeed, Pakistan Machine Tool Factory (PMTF) and the Zulfiqarabad Oil Terminal as well as the nearby industrial estate in Landhi Town. The two neighbourhoods of Ibrahim Hyderi and Rehri are focussed on the fishing industry, complemented by the nearby Korangi Fish Harbour.

    I think Mr. Abdullah, I do not agree with your view about Sindhi's. Sindhis are lively people. They love to dance on Sindhi folk music. The land of Sindh has produced many great poets and singers who acknowledged themselves with their great work of Sindhi poetry. Shah Abdul Latif Bhtai can never be forgotten or neglected. The history of Sindh seems to be filled with the names of the warriors but it does not mean that Sindhis are war loving people. Sindhis are peaceful and hospitable people Sindhi poets have written the poems of peace and love so one should not feel that Sindhis are the fighters or warrior type of people.
