DB directs state govt to file affidavit in response to PIL seeking inclusion of Dogri as compulsory subject
12/6/2017 11:09:01 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 6: In a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Vikram Malhotra social activist and a politician seeking direction to state for implementing the Government order no 222 Edu of 2006 with regard to introduction of Dogri subject in all private as well as government schools, a Division Bench of State High Court comprising Chief Justice Badar Durrez Ahmed and Justice Sanjeev Kumar after hearing Advocate Abhinav Sharma for the PIL directed the state government to file an affidavit indicating clearly as to whether the six regional (mother) languages, i.e. Kashmiri, Dogri, Punjabi, Gojri, Pahari and Bodhi are being taught as compulsory subjects in schools or whether they are taught as an optional third subject and in which classes.
The court ordered that the affidavit shall clearly indicate the position as obtaining in the Jammu Province as also in the Kashmir Province. The affidavit has to be filed within two weeks. In the PIL the petitioner also has sought direction to Union Home Ministry to order the Census Department to rectify its Linguistic survey of 2001 details with regard to mother tongues being spoken in J&K as available on its website, and place Kishtwari, Siraji under the parent Family of Dogri and also Bhaderwahi from the parent family of Hindi to its original parent Family which is Dogri. The petitioner stated that although the Constitution of India classifies the minorities in two categories namely Linguistic Minorities and Religion based Minorities, there has been no subtle initiative taken by the Government of J&K to protect the rights of linguistic minorities, in spite of the endeavor taken by the framers of Indian constitution in form of Article 29, which clearly envisages the protection of cultural rights as well as the educational rights of minorities existing throughout the territorial bounds of India. Petitioner has said that there is a dire need for protection of the mother tongue being spoken by the linguistic minorities belonging to the state of J&K, otherwise the sole identity of these linguistic minorities which entirely depends on their mother tongue or language being spoken by these minority groups, will soon become a mere fiction if instant steps are not taken to conserve and protect the mother tongue of these minority groups.
