The history of Urdu language and literature cannot be written without mentioning the services of Kashmiri Pandits maht snm
Dr. Nusrat Mehdi, Director, Madhya Pradesh Urdu Academy, while highlighting the aims and objectives of the seminar, said that the aim of the seminar was to bring to the fore the valuable services of Kashmiri Pandits in Urdu language and literature and to educate the new generation of Kashmiri Pandits in Urdu language and literature. Kashmiri Pandits have not only patronized the Urdu language but have also created a great literary capital without which the history of Urdu language cannot be written. Rajesh Reena, special guest of the program and group editor of News Eighteen Network, while expressing his views in the seminar, said that Urdu is the language of India and it is not appropriate to associate its life with any religion. And when we associate a language with a religion, that language is not only limited in scope, but it dies. Kashmiri Pandits carried the language of every age on their chest. When Sanskrit was the language, they acquired this skill and created great scholars. Do your best for Persian and be a part of the administration. In the same way, you have added your blood and liver to the service of Urdu language and literature.
The President of the Seminar, Distinguished Journalist and Poet Burj Nath Betab congratulated the Government of Madhya Pradesh, the Department of Culture and the Urdu Academy for the seminar on the participation of Kashmiri Pandits in Urdu Language and Literature. Thank you. He also elaborated on the millennial relationship of Kashmir with Bhopal, the memorial of Raja Bhoj in Kashmir and the relationship of Nawab Bhopal.
