Urdu is a language which has been nurtured lovingly by people across all religions class and creed. It does not belong to any particular caste or religion. Urdu is purely an Indian language. It is a fact that Urdu language is read less widely as it should be but it is also a fact that it is very commonly used in day to day conversations. It is the language of the common man.
Stating this during the Foundation Day address at the Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), Hyderabad yesterday, Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs & Parliamentary Affairs said, the MANUU has played a great role in changing this perception and making Urdu an instrument for technical and professional education. It is a very important language used in all areas. The MANUU has created enough opportunities and arrangements even to teach Engineering & Technology to the Urdu medium students, a great achievement indeed, he added.
He further said that, the Modi government is in position at the Centre with a strong vision and mandate for development of all. The passing out students must constantly keep in mind their role towards contributing in nation building. This University is in tune with its progressive movement of preparing the future generations.
The central government is concerned about the socio-economic and educational empowerment of minorities and trying to reach out to far-flung regions to understand the hurdles faced in implementation of welfare schemes and programmes. New Delhi,
