General Hosh Muhammad Sheedi or Hoshu Sheedi (Sindhi: هوش محمد شيدي; Urdu: ہوش محمّد شیدی) was a supreme commander of Sindh's Talpur army, who fought with valor with the British forces under Sir Charles Napier at the Battle of Dabbo, and laid down his life in defense of his country on March 24, 1843.

The slogan was originally coined by Talpurs in the Battle of Miani.
Hosu 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.
Hoshu was born in 1801. Before joining the army, he worked at the residence of Talpur rulers.
The historical mausoleum of Hosho Sheedi is in Dubee, a small village approximately 10 kilometres from Hyderabad. It was built to pay tribute to the war martyrs and was declared a heritage site. The building needs the maintenance now.
