Kashmiri language promotion needed: AIKS
Jammu, Jan 11 (PTI) Emphasising upon the need of preserving and promoting the Kashmiri language, All India Kashmiri Samaj (AIKS) today said the language is the main component which edifices the richness of identity and culture of a community or a nation.
"There is need of preserving and promoting the Kashmiri Language terming it as a soul of our existence. The language is the main component which edifices the richness of identity and culture of a community or a nation," President of AIKS, Moti Koul said.
He was here today for inaugurating the three day "National Seminarcum-Workshop on the Maintenance of Kashmiri Language, Literature and Culture" .
The seminar was organised by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, in collaboration with J&K Academy of Art, Culture and Languages.
"Our responsibility towards safeguarding Kashmiri Language doubles as the KP community is physically away from their land of birth", he said, adding, our sustained link with our roots importantly depends how we treat our language.
"It is also a wrong notion that Kashmiri language is near annihilation. Even today we frequently quote Kashmiri sayings of Lal Ded and of Nund Reshi," Kaul said.
Kashmiri language is the boon of seers and saints and it cannot die, but we have to responsibly play our role in enriching it, he stressed.
