Continuing its efforts of appraising the government about the issues of Kashmiri language and literature, a delegation of Adbee Markaz Kamraz (AMK) headed by President Dr Aziz Hajni today met with Minister for New and Renewable Energy Dr Farooq Abdullah at his residence in Srinagar.

While discussing in detail the issues of Kashmiri language, the delegation explained the importance of introducing Kashmiri as evaluative subject in the curriculum of schools and colleges in Kashmir province and Kashmiri speaking areas of other parts of the State. “It is important for the preservation and promotion of Kashmiri language that this language is made part of curriculum through a structured process,” Dr Abdullah was told by the delegation.

Appreciating the AMK for its efforts to promote Kashmiri language and literature, Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that as a first step for making Kashmiri language an important part of academics, it has to be made a compulsory subject in the 9th and 10th classes. “I will take up this proposal with the State government very soon,” he assured.  Dr Abdullah said that other proposals including introduction of the language at higher secondary and college levels in the Kashmiri speaking areas of J & K will be discussed  through a gradual process.
