No. & is used to mean 'and' or 'et' or 'agus' or 'och' and other
things. But you can write 'and' or 'et' or 'agus' or 'och'. The
SINDHI AMPERSAND is the **only** way in Sindhi of writing the
conjunction that translates as 'and' or 'et' or 'agus' or 'och'. Do
not be led astray by the character name. That is something invented
by English speakers. The proper name would be SINDHI CONJUNCTION IN
(the pronunciation, I believe, of this word), alongside SINDHI
POSPOSITION MEN (which is the pronunciation of the word which
translates as 'in' or 'dans' or 'i').

It is possible to write "in" and "men" in Sindhi. But those are not
permissable spellings for these two words, and would be spellings for
