General Hosh Muhammad Sheedi or Hoshu Sheedi (Sindhi: هوش محمد شيدي; Urdu: ہوش محمّد شیدی‎) was a supreme commander of Sindh's Talpur army.

Hosh Muhammad belonged to the African-descent Sheedi community of Sindh Pakistan. Before his death in the Battleground of Dubbo he called out the famous slogan:

The slogan was originally coined by Talpur Dynasty in the Battle of Miani.[citation needed]

Hosh Muhammad fought with such an unmatched heroism and courage that even his enemy Sir Charles Napier paid great tributes and buried him with full military honours.[3] today every Sindhi has remembering hosh Mohammad sheedi.
