To Meet CM Before Launching Decisive Movement
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 3: Expressing resentment over the continued indifference of the government toward various issues of Kashmiri language, Adbee Markaz Kamraz (AMK) today decided to meet the Chief Minister before launching the decisive phase of its language movement, an AMK spokesman said in a statement.
He said an important meeting of its Executive chaired by its president Dr Aziz Hajni was held at Sopore in north Kashmir. Quoting participants the spokesman said, “Despite repeated assurances, the government is yet to start teaching of Kashmiri language as evaluative subject in class 9th and class 10th. Moreover, there continues to be the shortage of teachers of Kashmiri language in schools and colleges. Over the years these issues have been taken up with the government at various levels, but nothing has happened beyond promises.”
“After thorough discussions, it was decided that the eleven-member committee of AMK comprising members of civil society, set-up in November last year, shall meet the Chief Minister soon to take up all these issues with him directly. After this meeting, if the government continues its nonchalance toward Kashmiri language, AMK shall launch a decisive phase to achieve these objectives,” the meeting resolved.
Maintaining that Kashmiri language is a symbol and guardian of collective identity of Kashmiri culture and civilisation, the meeting resolved to mobilise public opinion for protection of their mother tongue.
The meeting congratulated this year’s Sahitya Akademi awardees, Makhan Lal Kanwal, Abdul Ahad Hajni and Farooq Shaheen, saying such honours strengthen the efforts of promotion of Kashmiri language and literature. It was also decided that AMK will again meet the district administration Baramulla to expedite the construction of AMK office in Kanispora Baramulla.
