Srinagar, April 15: Stating that BJP was desperate enough about the outcome of ensuing parliamentary elections, as that, the outgoing Prime Minister has sensed defeat before results and was making false and frivolous propaganda to woo the voters, but the people and Congress party will defeat the designs of BJP.

He said Narinder Modi’s rhetoric was based on the lies and deceit, he will no longer be able to mislead people on religious and caste basis for electoral gains, blaming PDP for the damages caused to people in Kashmir valley.

This was stated by J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President and Party Candidate Gulam Ahmad Mir, who was addressing public meetings, Sarpanchs Panchs and Party workers in Dooru area of South Kashmir. Addressing the meeting Mir said that the outgoing Prime Minister and his entire team in BJP have adopted the path of lies and deceit to woo the voters.

 

“They have nothing to show to people of the country, the tall claims with 56-inch Chest of Narendra Modi has proved merely a political gimmick, the promises made to people especially youth, farmers and poor people have fallen flat,” he said.

Mir said BJP PDP was fully responsible for the current situation in the State especially in the valley and unfortunately BJP was hell bent upon to use Armed Forces and Kashmir situation for Electoral gains, which was very shameful on the part of Narinder Modi

Reacting to the Kathua Public meeting of Prime Minister, G A Mir said that whenever PM address public meeting in any part of the country, he uses the sacrifices of Armed Forces, besides attacking Congress Party, then  rake up  sensitive issues aiming to  create an impression that he was the only person in the country with guts, but I want to tell Narinder Modi that he will be remembered for a long for his  lies, deceit and political exploitation. People of the country will never forgive him,

Criticizing both PDP BJP for playing politics over the Kashmir situation and the issues confronting people, Mir said.

“The unholy alliance between these parties shall also be remembered for a long, for the fact, during their rule scores of people have been blinded, maimed and jails were filled,  mass arrests, intimidation of innocent people and whatnot has been done by PDP BJP,” he said.

“Congress Party fought against the atrocities against people and came on roads against high handedness and innocent killings, but in response the PDP BJP unholy alliance with the full support of Centre adopted repressive measures against Congress Leaders aiming to silence the genuine voice, besides withdrawing security of our Party leaders one by one despite that Congress party did not compromise on its stated position of fighting against injustice and innocent killings,” he said.

Mir cautioned the people about the polarization by BJP especially Narendra Modi, who is in habit of polarizing the situation before the elections, he added and reiterated his appeal to people to rise to the occasion  to ensure victory of Congress Party with a thumping majority, for the fact, it was the Congress party alone which has fought against the communal agenda of BJP RSS and was fully  capable to defeat them to ensure that  the unity, harmony and multiplicity  in the Country and State remains intact.

Ganderbal, Apr 24: Central University of Kashmir (CUK) Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Mehraj ud Din Mir Wednesday said that there has been a sharp decline in the number of people reading Urdu newspapers in Kashmir valley.

“The current trend among people, particularly the youth is to read English newspapers. However, strenuous efforts should be made to promote reading of Urdu newspapers among masses as Urdu is the official language of the State of Jammu and Kashmir,” Prof. Mehraj ud Din Mir said while addressing the inaugural function of the two-day workshop on Urdu journalism “Skill Enhancement of Urdu Journalists of Kashmir,” organised by CUK’s Department of Convergent Journalism (DCJ) in collaboration with Jammu Kashmir Urdu Council and Anjuman-e-Urdu Sahafat at varsity’s Green Campus here.

Prof, Mehraj ud Din Mir said that in order to promote Urdu journalism in valley, the varsity is contemplating to start Diploma in Urdu journalism. He said that a state-of-the-art studio will be constructed for the DCJ at the Tulmulla campus of the university, adding the journalists belonging to Ganderbal district would be also allowed to avail certain facilities provided in the Convergent Journalism.

 

Addressing the gathering Registrar, Prof. Fayaz A Nikka, said, that at present, the Urdu journalism is at crossroads and there is a dire need to conduct such type of workshops. “Urdu has its own history and a cherished past,” Prof. Nikka said, journalism has its own contours, importance, duties and responsibilities, adding that journalists are spokespersons of the society and they have to highlight the problems and issues confronting the society in an objective manner. They have to construct a moral order in the society through their reportage and promote sense of brotherhood among different communities, based on mutual trust and understanding. Prof. Nikka said that there seems to be decline in Urdu journalism and its readers as people have become inclined towards English in all the spheres of life.

Senior faculty member, Media Education Research Centre, University of Kashmir, Prof. Nasir Mirza in his address, hailed the DCJ and Urdu Council for organizing the workshop. He said the technical sessions on different aspects of Urdu journalism would be beneficial to the participating reporters and sub-editors. Prof. Nasir Mirza also shed light on the advent of Urdu journalism in Kashmir.

Dean School of Media Studies, Prof. Hamidullah Marazi said, the DCJ is offering Post-Graduate programme in Journalism and has started research programme in 2018. He said the department has produced many documentaries, which have bagged awards at local and national level. Prof. Marazi said the students graduating from the department are working in prestigious media organizations in the State and Country. Prof. Hamidullah also underscored the need to promote Urdu journalism and asked the organizations working for promotion of Urdu to take immediate steps in this regard.

DCJ Coordinator, Dr. John Babu Koyee while speaking on the occasion, said, the purpose of holding the workshop is to revive Urdu journalism. “As Urdu newspapers are circulated across the Jammu and Kashmir, it becomes imperative to train and orient the journalists in Urdu journalism, so that they report professionally,” he said, adding that despite the fact the number of people reading Urdu newspapers are decreasing with each passing day, the number of journalists, starting their venture as Urdu newspapers is increasing.

Earlier, Ifham ul Islam recited Tilawat-e-Quran while as Faizan recited Na’at.

Academician and Journalist, Rashid Maqbool conducted the programme proceedings and also gave an overview of Urdu journalism in Kashmir while as JK Urdu Council, President proposed the vote of thanks.

Srinagar, April 24: National Conference leader and Candidate for Anantnag parliamentary constituency, Justice Hasnain Masoodi Wednesday thanked voters of district Anantnag for casting their vote in favour of National Conference, the party that stands for Kashmir identity and against the forces that have in last seven decades and particularly four and a half years eroded autonomy and their local collaborators.

Justice Masoodi as per a statement issued to here raised concern on clubbing of polling stations, as according to him, clubbing has made it inconvenient for voters to traverse long distances, in some cases few kilometers, to cast their vote. “The clubbing of polling stations, it is pointed out, has not only contributed to low turnout of voters but practically deprived voters of their precious right to vote,” he said.

He also condemned the ‘deadly assault’ by PDP workers and their accomplices on local youth within premises of a polling station at Bijbehara, only because the youth had courage to resist fake and bogus voting.

 

The attack, according to Justice Masoodi, depicts level of frustration and nervousness of the PDP leadership. He demanded registration of case against those responsible for attack and its impartial investigation. “The voters of Bijbehara, it is stated had no option but to reject the PDP through ballot, as PDP heaped unprecedented atrocities on the people and made lethal attacks on the identity and autonomy of Jammu & Kashmir. The voters of Bijbehara by deciding not to vote for PDP, have only made a honest effort to wash off the blot, that has smeared image of a town occupying a distinguished place in the history of the State,” Justice Masoodi said.
