Malakhra (Urdu: ملاكهرا‎) or Malakhro (Sindhi: ملاکڙو‎) is an ancient Sindhi form of wrestling in Pakistan and India, which dates back 5000 years.[1] The match begins with both wrestlers tying a twisted cloth around the opponent's waist. Each one then holds onto the opponent's waist cloth and tries to throw him to the ground. Malakhra is one of the favorite sports among males in Sindh, Pakistan and Gujarat, India. Malakhro matches are generally held on holidays and Fridays and are a feature of all fairs and festivals. Rich feudal lords and influential persons maintain famous Malhoo (wrestlers) and organize matches for them.
