Kashmiris Oppose Devanagari Script For Kashmiri Language

Published on 24 May, 2016 at 12:12 pm By

The Civil Society in Kashmir has rejected a proposal by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to introduce Devnagri as alternate script for Kashmiri language through its proposed council.

A group of writers, poets, artists, academicians, social activists and businessmen said that the proposal to introduce Devnagri script was unacceptable.

The meeting was called by Adbee Markaz Kamraz (AMK), a federation of 25 literary and cultural organizations from north Kashmir.

“The move is politically motivated and aimed at bifurcating the Kashmiri community in the name of the script,” read a resolution passed unanimously at the meeting.

“It is aimed at demolishing our cultural identity as the existing script has been in vogue for past over five centuries and entire Kashmiri literature was available in this script. There is no need to have an alternative script that will not only divide the place but also lead to confusion,” it added.

The meeting called upon the state’s political leadership to play its role in forcing the government to stop this move.



The resolution asked the state’s chief minister to intervene and warned the Centre of dangerous ramifications.

The participants warned the HRD ministry to desist from taking such step and also clarify its stand.

Abdul Majeed Zargar, a civil society member said the move was a part of a big conspiracy to suppress Kashmiri identity.

Veteran broadcaster Farooq Nazki said the move should be resented by one and all united so that the vested interests wouldn’t succeed.
