National, regional languages
Karachi: The native languages of all the four provinces in Pakistan should
be declared as national languages on the pattern of India since the Pakistan
Academy of Letters had also declared all the languages of Pakistan as national
languages in 1994, according to Sindh Minister for Culture Sassui
The minister has submitted a proposed bill in this regard to
Constitutional Reforms Committee headed by Senator Raza
According to the contents of the proposed bill, Sindhi language
should be declared as national language since it is an established ancient
language, which fulfills the criteria of a national language. Denying this
status to the Sindhi language would be tantamount to repeating the past mistake
of ignoring the Bengali language, she said. "It is in the fitness of the present
conditions, political, social, educational and economical to declare Sindhi as
national language," said Ms Palijo.
She points out that there are at
least eight criterions for declaring any language as national and Sindhi
language fulfills all.
Elaborating, the culture minister says that Sindhi
is being used by the people in their daily life for all the purposes of society,
and it is being spoken throughout generations from the time
According to her, it is being used as official and court
language and also as a medium of instruction from primary up to the higher
education. It is being used for its literary and media communication and it is
an exponent of the various feelings of the people. It is able to borrow and use
the words and phrases from any other developed language and can transform that
stock of words according to its own grammatical structure. It has originated
from the language of the soil and the speakers of that language feel proud of
presenting it as their national language.
Talking about the features of
the Sindhi language, the minister says that Sindhi is an original language of
Indus Valley people, which possess all the peculiarities of a developed
language. It is one of the ancient languages of the world and "national
treasure" of Pakistan. Sindhi language is rich in folk, classical, modern,
progressive and scientific literature. It had remained as an official and court
language before and during British period and continues as such in Sindh till
Presently, books on various subjects including textbooks, dailies,
weeklies and monthlies are being regularly produced in Sindhi
Ms Palijo points out that there are eight Sindhi satellite TV
channels in addition to other electronic media operating in Sindh and
She believes that Pakistan is a multi-cultural and multi-lingual
country and it is also an accepted fact that Pakistan is not a unitary form of
state but it is a federation of various provinces. The Lahore Resolution (23rd
March 1940) says that Pakistan is a federation consisting of various provinces
where different languages are spoken and where different varieties of cultures
are followed. The news
