    Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee sets up panel to seek cancellation of new DU norm


    AMRITSAR: The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has constituted an 11-member joint action committee (JAC) for cancellation of a provision by Delhi University, introduced from this academic session, by which many students will lose the opportunity to study their mother tongue.

    Talking to TOI on Wednesday, DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK said student representatives of different colleges affiliated to DU, a number of social organisations and NGOs working for development of regional languages -- termed as modern Indian languages (MILs) -- met him, urging his intervention for cancellation of the provision.

    As per the new provision for four-year graduation course of DU, being implemented from this session, it shifts Punjabi, Urdu and other MILs, to the second year (third semester). Earlier, these languages were introduced from the first semester.

    He said the committee comprising professors of Urdu, Punjabi and other languages would jointly work to restore the pride of regional languages.

    Manjit said he would lead a delegation of DSGMC to meet Vice President Hamid Ansari, who is also the chancellor of DU, for cancellation of the new provision.

    MILs had the status of second language in many states of India. Even Urdu and Punjabi had the status of second language of Delhi. Like Urdu and Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Marathi, Bengali and Sindhi carry great literary and cultural traditions, which truly represent the Indian ethos and a picture of unity in diversity, Manjit stated.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
