Sindh province is a land of Pakistan, which is full of traditions; Malakhra is believed to be one of them. It is also termed as Malakhro. In the language of Urdu, it is also known as ملاكهرا while in the regional language of Sindh, it is notorious as ملاکڙو. It is very similar to wrestling but awash with the cultural heritage.
The match contains 2 players who wear a kind of wide cloth which is tied around their waist. Both of the rivals do try to make fall the second challenger by grabbing his waist-cloth. Both the players attempt their best to win the game, and whoever wins, it is the mandatory element of Malakhra that both malhs embrace and hug each other as a sign of brotherhood and sportsmen ship. On public holidays and Fridays, Malakhra is managed so that a major sum of the public could amuse the match.
Wrestlers (Malho) are normally hired by the prosperous and moneyed people of Sindh province who also put in order this event for the entertainment of others and themselves. Malhs come from near and far of the country for their involvement and participation.
There are few rules that should have to be followed during the whole session of match that might involve like the opponents can make use of their hands merely for assault; time long stay of wrestlers out of the marked field for Malkhra will result in the disqualification etc. To ignore disentitlement, there are few other rules involving broaching on shoulder of adversary or compelling him to fall for submission or slam etc.
Now-a-days its fame and awareness is increased that much that the matches are even telecasted on the national and private channels. Malakhra is not just usual among the elderly, but it’s also favorite among the youth not only of Sindh province but also all over Pakistan.
