Mushawarat Welcomes Declaration of Punjabi and Urdu as Second Official Languages

Demands Urdu Medium Primary Schools in Urdu Areas and Teaching of Urdu to Urdu Students as Compulsory First Language in Secondary Schools

New Delhi, 26 June, 2003: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:

"The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) welcomes the declaration of Punjabi and Urdu as additional Official Languages of the Capital Territory of Delhi. This shall enable the Government to use them for specified purposes.

The Delhi Official Language Act, 2000 is, however, a symbolic gesture and its impact will largely depend on the number of communications from the public to the authorities in Punjabi or Urdu and the time taken by the authorities to reply to them in these languages.

As far as Urdu is concerned, what is more important is the establishment of Urdu medium primary schools, in accordance with the national norms, in all Urdu-concentration pockets of Delhi, which need to be honestly identified by the Urdu NGO’s, the Delhi Government and the National Council for the Promotion of Urdu Language, coupled with the teaching of Urdu at the secondary level as a compulsory First Language to those whose Mother Tongue is Urdu and as an optional Second Language to those whose Mother Tongue is any other Modern Indian Language.

The AIMMM requests the Government of Delhi to pay special attention to the fulfillment of the educational rights of the Urdu-speaking people of Delhi rather than fob them off with a token gesture."
