Bihar commission not accepting application in Urdu, 2nd official language

By Mumtaz Alam, Muslim Mirror,

forbesganjPatna, April 17: Urdu is the second official language in Bihar and thereby all state government offices and institutions are bound to accept any application, memorandum, FIR etc. in Urdu language also besides Hindi and English. But on the ground of reality, it seems, the language is not enjoying the status of second official language as even high-powered offices too are not accepting interaction in Urdu.

In a big disclosure, the Judicial Enquiry Commission, set up by the Nitish Kumar government in June 2011 to look into the Forbesganj police firing, is not accepting applications from victims or Muslim organizations written in Urdu language.

Forbesganj judicial commissionMohammad Arif Ansari, General Secretary and Spokesperson of Bihar State Momin Conference had sent application in Urdu to the commission. Mr. Ansari wanted to appear before the commission that is enquiring the 3rd June 2011 police firing in which four persons including an infant and a pregnant woman were killed in Bhajanpur village of Forbesganj block in Araria district. But the commission has not accepted his application and asked him to send the application in Hindi as the commission has no arrangement to read applications in Urdu language.

“I am instructed to inform you that the commission has got an application letter in Urdu from you regarding the hearing in connection with the firing. The commission has no arrangement to read Urdu applications, and that is why further action on your application is pending,” reads the letter (dated 16th Jan 2013) from the commission. The commission asked Mr. Arif to resend his application in Hindi.

“This exposes the true status of Urdu, the second official language of Bihar. Soon after the language was granted the status in 1980s, the state government had notified that all offices should have an Urdu translator. But this is just on paper,” Mr. Arif Ansari told Muslim Mirror.

He expressed surprise and anguish over the fact that the Forbesganj firing judicial commission has not been given Urdu staff even when the commission is looking into a case which is related to the Muslim community.

“All the victims of Forbesganj firing are Muslims; in fact, the entire village is dominated by Urdu speaking Muslim community. Besides, several Muslim organizations have shown interest to appear before the commission seeking justice for the victims. Yet, the state government has not provided an Urdu translator to the commission,” Mr. Ansari added.

He also lambasted the slow pace of the commission. “The commission was given six months to submit its enquiry report, but around two years have passed, there is no trace of the report,” said Mr. Ansari.

The slow pace of the commission is evident from Mr. Ansari’s case also. He had sent his Urdu application to the commission on 23rd November 2011, but the commission responded on 16th Jan 2013 seeking application in Hindi.

“The commission has been set up by the government just to befool the public. They are delaying deliberately so that the victim families forget it and culprits are not brought to book,” said Mr. Arif Ansari.

  2. Jamia Urdu Hind:State’s Madrasa Tul Oloom for Secular Education, Research In Urdu Language of National Importance & Employment
    An un-aided pioneer minority institution of fellows of Saabarmati Ashram of Gandhiji & Jamiat Ulema Hind since British imperialism and an integral part of Non-Violent struggle by the patriotic scholars of JUH such as Qurbaan Ali(exiled for life to Kalapani punishment by C.G.Atkin) to protect and develop Bharat and to educate and empower the underprivileged class (Women, Tribes and Minorities) so as to streamline them into the mainstream. Mother Teresa was honored by JUH for Dukhtar-E-Hind. JUH is the mother institution among all Jamia Urdu of India as it educates and trains up to the research in Urdu language and literature of National Importance. The notion of Jamia Urdu having its root in Delhi, Kashmir, UP, Raigarh, Bihar is like various centre of excellence of Aligarh Muslim University established in UP, Bihar, West Bengal etc. Urdu, the language of lovers and poets connected with its glorious past such as Qawwalis, Ghazal renditions, Mushaira, Play, War of rhyme have proved that education and nation are incomplete without Urdu. To educate those who are not educated with the mainstream is the most patriotic action of mankind of all times. Like Hindi, Urdu is the thread of Bharat’s beaded necklace where all super power of the world is quit on the developed and the united front. A Dadar-based institute has discovered 2 Ghazals in Urdu written by freedom fighter Veer Savarkar during his 11 years imprisonment in the Andaman Cellular Jail(TOI 28.7.13). Aligarh Muslim University has introduced a mandatory elementary course of Urdu for all. The Ministry of Culture, Govt of India has granted Jamia Millia Islamia to translate 10 books of Nobel laureate R Tagore into Urdu.
    Dar Dar Bhatak Rahi Hai Magar Dar Nahin Mila
    Urdu Ko Apney Des Mein Hi Ek Ghar Nahin Mila
    The above couplet rightly depicts the plight of Urdu which was born and nurtured here and eventually became a symbol of country’s composite culture. The language which gave us the slogans Inquilab Zindabad and patriotic songs like Sare Jahan Se Achcha Hindustan Hamara and Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna Ab Hamare Dil Mein Hai during the freedom struggle, became alien in its own land after independence as it became the official language of Pakistan, our sworn enemy. Unfortunately, vested interests dubbed it as the language of Muslims only, conveniently forgetting the contributions of Brij Narain ‘Chakbast’, Daya Shankar ‘Naseem’, Prem Chand, Ratan Nath ‘Sarshar’, Raghupati Sahai ‘Firaq’ Gorakhpuri, Anand Narain ‘Mulla’, Krishna Bihari ‘Noor’, Gopi Chand Narang and hundreds of other Non-Muslim poets and writers.

    JAI BHARATJAI HIND:JAMIA URDU HIND(JUH)

    Jamia Urdu Hind is an un-aided State’s Madarsa-Tul-Oloom designed and established for research in Urdu language and literature of national importance having potential for excellence since British imperialism to educates those who are not educated with the mainstreams and is established in such a locality of Raigarh, Solapur, Murshidabad, Mehzurnagar, Azimabad, Viratnagar etc which has the highest number of rickshaw-puller and public below poverty line (BPL) in the country where the condition of the people is worse than SC/ST because average life-span is ~52 years and infant mortality is highest in the world. More than 43 % children never see the school in their life and 37% women use single Saari in a year. AIDS, TB, Leprosy and STDs are pandemic as if the area has encountered the aftermath of the World-War II. People are deprived of electricity & road even after 65 years of independence. Basic needs of common people are never fulfilled by the resource available/ supplied by the administrations.

    Problems Can Not Be Solved At The Same Level Of Awareness That Created Them (Albert Einstein)

    Could a community that ruled India for over 950 years and belonged to a privileged class even during British Raj, becomes socially handicapped. This now encounters the worst conditions (worse than SC/ST) in their own land as per Sachhar Committee Report and urgently needs emergency educational support to achieve 100% literacy so as to make India a developed nation (BP Singhal, MP, Ex-DG, IPS).

    Education is the most powerful weapon which one can use to change the world that can solve all the problems in the present scenario from the face of the region because JUH enrolls the students by literacy campaign to those children who are supposed never to see the schools in their life.

    The courses of JUH based on CBSE/State Madarsa Board/NCERT/NIOS/UGC syllabus, have been framed to study the contribution of Urdu in the reformation of the motherland and to educate girls of marginalized section since Dark Age of British Imperialism. JUH is meant for Research in Urdu Language of National Importance since Non-Violent Struggle against British Imperialism by the Patriotic Organization of Scholars run by fellows of Sabarmati Ashram of MK Gandhi and Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind. JUH has 4.7 acres land with Library & Classrooms and is the heritage of Indo-Urdu Culture comprising of Kosi-Kaabur Culture, Ganga-Jamna Culture, Deccan Culture, Oriental/Indo-Arab Culture of India, cultivating strong civic sense of the highest democratic importance, equally important for both Urdu-Speaking Community and Non-Urdu-Speaking Community.

    A civilization can be judged by the way it treats its minorities(Gandhiji): Ministry of Minority Affairs.
    Therefore, we magnetize you in achieving 100% literacy in India by this noble, kind and history making contribution towards tribal, women and minorities’ education and literacy.

    In order to strengthen the cause of the minorities, the United Nations promulgated the “Declaration on the Rights of Persons belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities” on 18th December (Minorities Rights Day) 1992 proclaiming that: “States shall protect the existence of the National or Ethnic, Cultural, Religious and Linguistic identity of minorities within their respective territories and encourage conditions for the promotion of that identity.” (National Commission for Minorities, Govt of India).

    Vicious Cycle of History:
    Starting from Righteousness?>>>>Blessing?>>>>Prosperity?>>>>Pride?>>>>Wickedness?>>>>Sufferings or Destruction?>>>>Humility?>>>>Repentance, again Righteousness starts.

    After the rising of Islam, Muslims invaded India in the chronological order and established Delhi Sultanate: Syed Salar Masood Ghazi, Mohammad Gauri, Mahmood Ghaznavi, Qutubuddin Aibak, Razia Sultana, Tughlaq, Khilji, Syed, Lodhi, Mughal. British targeted Muslim Rulers in India in1598 to end up by establishing East India Company in 1600. About 1000 yrs back, there were two residential centre of excellence: Takhshila (now in Pakistan) and Nalanda (now in Bihar) Universities.
    Madarsa Bidar by Tughlaq(Bahmani) Dynasty and Madarsatul Oloom, Delhi by Mughal Dynasty were running about 500 yrs back having 63700 students on AMU pattern.

    In Indian rebellion of 1857, Begum Hazrat Mahal, Tatia Tope, Bhakt Khan, Nana Sahib, Khan Bahadur Khan, Lakshmi Bai, Mangal Pandey, Kunwer Singh, Liaqat Ali, Nawab of Bengal lead by Bahadur Shah Zafar fought against British in Buxer and lost the battle. Thus, Muslim empire ended up and intellectuals were shattered and impoverished then started to establish the institutions in this chronological order: Mujahirul Uloom(1866), Darul Uloom(1867), Aligarh Muslim University (1875), Nadwatul Uloom (1894), Osmania University (1918), Jamiat Ulema Hind (1919), Imaarat Shariah Patna (1921), Jamia Urdu Hind(1941). More than 50000 Madarsa and 14% literacy to India are contributed by Muslims without grants and Madarsa has produced architecture of Taj Mahal, Lal Qila, Qutub Minar along with Abusena in medicine and Khaiyam in mathematics.

    A few awesome roads less traveled by the masses so as to read between the lines about the history of Patrons of Jamia Urdu Hind:

    U I Kalsekar of Mahad(Raigarh) was educationist dealing with all affairs in Saabarmati Ashram with Gandhiji. His pioneer work with Gandhiji was the introduction of dress code for students and promotion of education for girls. Gandhiji always promoted Urdu and officially accepted it as the sharp weapon in freedom struggle against British imperialism. Gandhiji wrote a few letters to him in this regard to promote Urdu language. Mr. Kalsekar was the chancellor of JUH.
    Aligarh Muslim Universities’ Students’ Union has fully held up the promotion of Urdu by JUH since British Imperialism. The endless name of national and international personalities can not be mentioned but a few name, if left, can be unjustified.
    Dil Cheez Kyahe Aap Meri Jaan Lijiye=Bas Ek Baar Mera Kaha Maan Lijiye
    (song of Film Umra-O-Jaan by Shaharyaar, a strong ally of JUH and his few letters prove it).
    AA Fatmi (Ex-MOS, MHRD, GOI) was elected as the secretary of AMUSU by the prop up of the patron of JUH. The president and the secretary of AMUSU Vide OM/D.No. 2154/SU has appealed to all Boards/Universities/Government to recognize all courses of Jamia Urdu Hind so as to make India a developed nation. JUH has an agreement with the AMUSU to teach those who has no opportunity in the life to get admitted in AMU. Mahatma Gandhi was the life time member and supporter of aims and objectives of AMUSU (statutory body passed in Indian Parliament).

    Farman-E-Shahi / The Royal Charter :: Az-Gung-Ta-Sang-Az-Kosi-Ta-Dhosi: Choudhris of Sbpur is basically descendents of Choudhry Peer Bakhsh of Jounpur, UP who came to Kachout first then shifted to Pehlam with a pious person Hazrat Deewan Mohd Saadiq Ashraf (Rah.) for teaching and education after the order (Farmaan) of Akbar when Ch Hafiz Ali(Royal Teacher) and Ch Farid(Commander)were awarded by Akbar under the royal charter (Farman-E-Shahi) Az-Gung-Ta-Sang-Az-Kosi-Ta-Dhosi (an area of the 100 x 100 km). The rest public from Jounpur came for the service of the royal families. After the dispute to clear Jungles and beasts for cultivation, Farman-E-Shahi was also obtained from Shah Jahan. Nawab Sarmast Ali Khan of northern province backed up the Choudhris (Ghulam Mohammad) in 1770 when they were attacked by Deo Karan Singh Dundia of Tirhut and offered him the writer’s post (Qalamdan Munshigiri), membership of the court of Nawab and the Sanad of the estate. Rup Narayan Singh tried to seize Pargana Pharkia, again, attacked Choudhris (Hidayat Ali), looted residence, killed him and destroyed the old Farman and Sanads. Ghulam Ali(brother of Ghulam Muhammad, Hedayat Ali) recovered the estate under the orders of Ali Vardi Khan (The first organized war against British was waged in Bengal by Ali Vardi Khan in 1754, later on some more historic wars were fought against British even the mutiny of 1857: Maulana Wali Rahmani). Ali Vardi Khan was Nawab Nazim of Bihar, Bengal and Orissa (Nawab of Bengal), the grand father of Siraj-ud-daula and honored as Shuja-ul-mulk(hero of the country), Hashim-ud-daula(Sword of the state), Mahabat Jung(horror in war) by the Mughal emperor Mohammad Shah. His father worked with Aurangzeb. He born in Deccan on 10.5.1671 and died in Murshidabad on 10.4.1756. The estate was shifted from Simri to Sbpur in 1791. Many institutions such as Islamia Higher Secondary, Khanqah, Sufism, Mushaira culture safeguarding Urdu by Jamia Urdu Hind were established by Choudhris during and before British imperialism having Waqf properties around 178 acres capable of establishing Deemed/State/Private University. Ch Mehmud, Ch. Qayam and Ch Nazir are well known owning around 4700 acres land in aggregate. The rent-roll of the Estate owned by Azimun Nisan was 76000. Choudhris strong political grip safeguarded Urdu of JUH politically, economically and socially.

    Akbar The Great first consulted Shah Nasrullah (Reh.) of Iran residing in Purani Lucknow for a baby named in future as Salim (Jahangir). Shah Nasrullah (Reh.) referred him to Khwaja Salim Chisti (Reh) and rejected the gift of 500 acres offered by Akbar. After the death of Akbar and Shah Nasrullah (Reh.), Jahangir followed the order of his father, constructed Khanqah, Mazar and Mosque in Purani Lucknow and gifted 500 acres land around Mazar to the descendants of Shah Nasrullah (Reh). Farmaan-e-Shahi sealed by Jahangir is still preserved in Purani Lucknow. Their descendants were also the owner of Siddhour Barehdari (70 Gaun ka Taluka) and 1000 acres land in one plot in Kursi Road of Barebanki. The state of his relative called as Mushqipur State was formed by Syed during Auranzeb(Reh.).His relative, Motiur Rahman of Banhara Estate (uncle of Syed Naziruddin Ashraf and Syed Basheeruddin Ashraf who are the descendent of Syed DMS Ashraf) was Barrister, educated in England, married in Royal Family of England (Goerge Fifth). She translated Quran in English and modernized the agriculture of Kaamat owning 2400 acres land which was the daughter’s property of Mushqipur State. Motiur Rahman also reopened the case during British Imperialism and defeated Maharaj for Jhagrauwa Masjid. Syed Jamal of Jamalpur and Jamshed Ashraf (Minister, Govt of Bihar and Industrialist), Gandhi Bhai(a constructor with Jindal construction) and and Syed Naziruddin Ashraf worked for Urdu of JUH.

    Abdul Raheem of Uday Pur was the strongest landlord among Muslims of Pargana in 1950 even stronger than C.G.Atkin of Daulatpur Kothi(a ruler of British imperialism), owning about 350 acres land in aggregate in the family because they were educationally advance in this time frame. His modern outlook also benefited Urdu of JUH.

    Daulat Pur is a place which have preserved Indo-Islamic culture, Sufism, Qauwali, Shairi etc in pre independent India. Shaikh Peer Ali and his son Shaikh Naad Ali were close associate of British in Northern Province posted as revenue collector in Daulatpur Kothi. The son-in-law of the later Mohd Hanif was handed over the charge of the post till the end and lastly C G Atkin left for England in the night on 14th August, 1945. His relative Qurban Ali was strong landlord resisting British at each step so exiled for Kalapani but never rewarded for the sacrifice by the government. Two jugs of Safire metal gifted by George Fifth is still preserved in HHRR library.

    ? In a press conference, media persons asked Actor Shahrukh Khan: What would be your message for the young generation? He said for the youngsters always to keep in mind that nothing is better than honesty and goodness in the world. Nobody hates you in the world, everybody hates only your guts and ability. (Registrar, Jamia Urdu Hind)

    ? True patriotism is not in reciting words of worship, visiting worship place, gossiping about policy/corruption etc but honestly finishing the job entitled (sweeping for a sweeper, teaching for a master, leading for a leader, practicing for a doctor etc). The worst civilization on the face of the earth was the time when fantastic hero prophet Muhammad SAW entered Arab and produced the best people, the ultimate culture and civilization of all times of the world. (VC, Jamia Urdu Hind)

    ? When the history of all discoveries, events and inventions of all times of this universe will be written, the message of Islam by the fantastic hero prophet Mohammad SAW, the serendipity of Penicillin & the discovery of ether as anesthesia will be placed at the top along with other great discoveries, events and inventions of the universe.
