  • 1

SRINAGAR: Literary Forum Bandipora on Friday castigated government of India for removing Kashmiri language from language portal following ‘politically motivated’ objections raised by few ‘sponsored’ miscreants.
The forum in a statement issued here appealed the HRD ministry to reconsider the decision of removing Kashmiri language from the language portal. “We will fight for the traditional development of Kashmiri language at every front and will not allow anybody to play politics over the sanctity of Kashmiri language,” the statement read.
The forum warned “political miscreants” to avoid playing with the sentiments of Kashmiri people by “distorting” the linguistic sacredness of Kashmiri language, the statement read.
The forum further appealed literary and cultural organisations to join hands with the state’s largest organisation Adbi Markaz Kamraz J&K so that such “miscreants” could be fought at every front.
“Government should have consulted all linguistic representatives before removing Kashmiri from website before bowing to few politically motivated representatives of Pandit community,” the forum said.
