Fifth International Urdu Conference concludes
Karachi: The well-attended four-day fifth international Urdu conference concluded at the Arts Council on Sunday evening.
and participants heaped plaudits on the organisers, the Arts Council of
Pakistan, for having staged such a splendid event.
journalist Masood Asher, congratulating the organisers, said that the
commencement of the conference was most timely and said people in places
like Lahore had the impression that Karachi was all about targeted
killings, robberies, and clashes, that people were confined indoors
after dark for fear of being robbed or killed. He said that apart from
being a very enriching exercise intellectually, the conference went a
long way in erasing the fearsome image of the city that had been
projected. He said that it was so reassuring to see that people in
Karachi had this thirst for intellectual pursuits and that there was
such a lot of literary talent.
Dr Nomanul Haq, of the
Lahore University of Management Science (LUMS), lauding the venture said
that it was a real source of pride that so many speakers and
participants came from all over the country. Urdu, he said, was an
international heritage and this conference had done the cause of the
language a real service in perpetuating this heritage.
Ahmed Khan, Vice-President, Arts Council recounted all the spadework
that had gone into planning and holding the conference amid such trying
and uncertain civic conditions. "We don't have words to thank all those
who helped us make the conference such a success", Khan said.
Urdu scholar from India Dr Shamim Hanafi, was highly impressed with the
moot and hoped that travel restrictions between the two countries would
be further eased so that people on both sides of the divide could
participate in such productive ventures more often.
first session of the day , titled, "Urdu ka ahd-e-afreen mazah",
pertained to humour in Urdu literature. There were readings from the
works of Zameer Jaffrey, Ibne Insha, Patras Bokhari, and Dilawar Firagh
by Asjad Bokhari, Anjum Rizvi, Nusrat Ali, and Iqbal Lateef.
third session was titled, "Urdu Adb Aalmi Tanazar Mmein" (Urdu
literature in the international context). Aamir Hussain, a UK-based
Pakistan author said that very few books of Urdu literature had been
translated into English or other global languages. He said that there
was need for more books in Urdu to throw light on our literary heritage.
Ulger from Turkey, speaking in fluent Urdu but with an accent, said
that Urdu teaching in Turkey had started 60 years ago. Presently, he
said, the universities of Ankara, Istanbul, and Koniya had very well
developed Urdu departments.
Farhat Parveen, a US-based
Pakistani, said that Pakistani literature in Urdu was second to none and
said that she had seen translations of Allama Iqbal's works in Italy
and said that the University of Rochester in New York had perhaps the
best translation of Mirza Ghalib's works. At the end of the conference
certain resolutions were passed some of which were:
i)Urdu be declared the official language of Pakistan as engendered in the 1973 constitution
rates for the transmission of books and literary material between
India and Pakistan be reduced by a substantial margin.
efforts be made to acquaint the young generation with the rich,
cultural and linguistic heritage and inculcate in them a love for Urdu.
iv) Bodies like the Academy of Letters and the National Book Foundation be declared autonomus organizations.
Indian diplomatic mission be re-established in Karachi to facilitate
travel, tourism and literary exchanges between the two countries.
Honorary membership of the Arts Council was conferred on Dr Shamim Hanafi, Naseer Turabi, and Dr. Nomanul Haq. The news
