Importance of Urdu emphasised
Karachi: Sindh Minister for Education and Literacy Pir Mazharul Haq has praised the universal character of Urdu, and said that Urdu was not only the language of Delhi or Lucknow, but it was the language of the entire sub-continent and those in diaspora.

Speaking at an Iftar party hosted by Anjuman Taraqqi-e-Urdu Pakistan (ATUP) on Thursday, the minister asserted that the position of Urdu as the national language of Pakistan was never threatened. He added however that all other languages of Pakistan had a regional hue, and should be supported.

He also reminded the audience that the Sufi Saint and poet Sachal Sarmast composed his poetry about 700 years ago in Urdu and that proves that even at that time people of Sindh could understand and speak the language. He assured the officials of AUTP of his cooperation on every level.

AUTP Honourary General Secretary Dr Jamiluddin Aali said that the organisation was a legacy of tireless work of Baba-e-Urdu Maulvi Abdul Haq and this should be taken by the present generation and other after them. The news
