Communalisation of languages a dangerous trend
Bhopal : A three-days seminar was jointly organised by Sahitya Academy, Madhya Pradesh Sanskriti Parishad and Bharat Bhavan in Bhopal on the theme ‘Nai Awaazen’ (New Voices ) in early September. Speaking on the occasion, Dr Gopi Chand Narang, president of Sahitya Academy and noted Urdu critic, said that communalisation of languages is a dangerous trend. He called upon artists and litterateurs to come forward to wage a war against communalism. He said under certain circumstances free thinking was difficult but a true writer should always project his inner voice and the voice of truth and humanism in his works.
Hindi litterateur, Kamleshwar said that the requirement of literature is to find out its roots and for this purpose the domain of literature should be kept open.
Writers, poets and critics of Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Kashmiri, Dogri and other languages took part in the seminar which was inaugurated by Nirmal Kumar Verma.
