IGNOU VC bats for Urdu software

Aligarh, Dec 19 (IANS) Urdu has played a vital role during India’s freedom struggle and became instrumental in uniting Indian society “but still Urdu has failed to get its due place”, said Mohammad Aslam, Vice Chancellor of Indira Gandhi National Open University here on Saturday.

According to a census report nearly 5.09 percent people in the county were Urdu-speaking which is the second language in many states.

Aslam said that Urdu was born in India and languages cannot be confined to one country, adding that “we should know only government cannot develop Urdu”.

“Till now the intellectuals have concentrated on Urdu literature whereas according to change of times we should concentrate on language and prepare Urdu software, Aslam said while addressing a national seminar on challenges before Urdu.

Seminar convener, Jasim Mohammad, said that the world scenario was changing fast politically, socially and economically and under this scenario only those languages will survive which have the capacity to change themselves with the times.
