Guv discusses functioning of Sheikh-ul-Aalam Chair
Srinagar, Aug 5: Professor Basher Bashir, Chairman of the Sheikh-ul-Aalam Chair, University of Kashmir, called on Governor N N Vohra at Raj Bhavan here on Friday and briefed him about the various activities being carried out under the aegis of the Sheikh-ul-Aalam Chair, an official spokesman said.
He said the Governor stressed the importance of every possible effort being made to collect the manuscripts of all the writings of Sheikh-ul-Aalam and establish a Museum to preserve them.
The Governor, according to the spokesman, observed that it is necessary to commence a time-bound programme to translate the works of the great philosopher into various languages and have these printed for the widest possible circulation, at affordable prices.
Prof Bashir presented to the Governor, who is the Chancellor of the Kashmir University, a set of three publications, two in English and one in Kashmiri language. These include “Aalamdar”, a research journal of the Sheikh-ul-Aalam Chair; “Noor”, Newsletter of the Chair; and a book written by Prof Bashir in Kashmiri language titled “Yiman Padan Me Vetsar Goutshy”, a Sahitya Akademi Award winning book for the year 2010.
He also presented to the Governor a copy of short documentary film titled “Phrov” prepared by the Chair.
Prof Bashir also presented to the Governor a proposal for the establishment of Sheikh-ul-Aalam International Cultural Centre, “Rahkay”, at the Kashmir University.
