Sindhi literature begins with poetry, which travels from ancient thought of romance or narrative, description to modernity. Obviously, poetry plays a pivotal role in the growth and development of society. In comparison to the average person, a poet feels pain and has a better understanding of things. Poetry expresses love, affection, courtship, social, political, and inner feelings at length. So, the class differences have had a great influence on Sindhi poetry. The term "class" herein means a section of society which is linked to any one of the professions. Basically, there are two classes in human society. One is the upper class, and the other is the lower class. The upper class includes the king, the investor or industrialist, the landlord, the businessman, and the head of a tribe. The lower class includes the poor, laborers, tenants, farmers, and people under pressure. He was Shah Inayat Shaheed of Jhok, who challenged this class distinction for equality with the slogan "one who ploughs the land." According to the master, this system of class distinctions indicates the upper class's monopoly over all resources, while the lower class people are devoid of them. In this research article, a brief review of the thought of class differences in Sindhi poetry has been presented with examples that seem the product of them.
