UP ordered to implement Urdu Act 

Allahabad : Allahabad High Court's two-member bench comprising Chief Justice Tarun Chatterjee and Justice Sunil Ambani directed the UP government on August 31 that it should take all effective steps in implementing the Notification dated 7 October 1989 and Government Orders dated 19 November 1990 and 16 March 1999 issued under UP Official Language Act (Amendment) 1989. The judges said in their verdict that, after hearing the arguments and demands of the plaintiff, Dr Parvaz Uloom (secretary, Urdu Anuwadak Karamchari Sangh, Allahabad), UP government needed to implement the legal provisions of the Urdu Act which includes the following: 

(1) Acceptance of applications written in Urdu and their reply in Urdu; (2) Acceptance of documents written in Urdu in registration offices; (3) Publication of important government rules and regulations and notifications in Urdu; (4) Publication of government orders and circulars of public importance in Urdu; (5) Publication of important government advertisements in Urdu; (6) Publication of Urdu translations of government gazettes; (7) Writing of important signboards in Urdu.

Founder of UP Urdu Development Organisation Bahrul Uloom, and its national president, Mohammad Akhtar Chooriwala said that after the court order, the UP government should make Urdu education compulsory in all primary and secondary schools. Both the leaders said that on the basis of the judgment the chief minister can appoint not only 3000 but 30,000 or even more Urdu teachers in thousands of primary and secondary schools throughout the state. Similarly, the restriction imposed by one-member bench on the appointment of Urdu translators should be treated null and void after this judgment. Accordingly if UP chief minister Mulayam Singh so desires he can appoint thousands of Urdu translators in government offices and it may provide jobs to unemployed Urdu-knowing people irrespective of the community or region of the state they belong to.

Dr Parvaz Uloom had accused the state government of failing to implement the Urdu Act because neither Urdu translators had been appointed nor Urdu education been made compulsory in primary and secondary schools in the state where Urdu was born and flourished.
