Removal of Urdu inscription from main entrance gate of Darbhnga law college sparks controversy


By Special Correspondent

Darbhanga (Bihar): The removal of Urdu name plate from the maingate of CM Law College here has sparked a major controversy as Urdu-loving and secular people condemned the communal and fascist forces. While demanding the  restoration of Urdu inscription, they said the Nitish Kumar government should check communal forces  and protect  Urdu language which is the second official of the state.

The controversy around inscribing  the name of CM law college in Urdu  was triggered by a group called MSU Mithila University Student Union. The group under the influence of right-wing forces  started a protest   after the College name was inscribed in  Urdu on the college maingate.  Under pressure from communal forces , the  college principal Prof. Badre Alam ordered the removal of Urdu inscription from the maingate.

Hammad Naseem, a local activist,  said  the MSU is a  ahistorical, pseudo-social and political group which doesn’t know the history of ,  Urdu language. He said the  university student Union is the lapdog of BJP-RSS. Historically in northern Bihar people speak two languages Maithili and loose dialects of Urdu.

It is to be noted that Urdu has been one of the official languages of Bihar along with Hindi since 1981. Urdu is the one of 26 Constitutionally recognised official languages of India and it is having official status in the five states of Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal, as well as the national capital territory of Delhi.

Local people alleged that it is a deliberate and obvious attempt to destroy the education and culture of Muslims. On pretext of promoting Maithili, Urdu has been erased from C.M Law College, Darbhanga entrance gate board.

They further pointed out that  the Bihar assembly elections are in due November because of this reason,  communal forces are trying   to raise such frivolous issues in order to sharpen communal polarisation.

  1. Why remove the urdu name ?
    U know that urdu is second language of bihar. Here some Bjp leader want to two religion fight to each other.

  2. Dr. Rekha Mathur(previous principal) was much better and efficient principal than Dr. Badre Alam. If she was still the principal,then nothing of this sort would be happening in that law college.

  3. In Mithilanchal all language is important other than Maithili. Muslims must come out from “only I” mind set. And think about what they should do for Nature like population control and get rid of “Arab is only” policy. And “Islam khatre me”like mind set.
    Change yourself “Islam ” should not be a religion of barbarisms. As World has changed. Live and let the other live.

  4. The origin of Urdu in India it is not a alienated language it is a language of peace love Harmony brotherhood and it is also second official language of Bihar now we should thinks where we are going

    Ram Prasad Bismil, the poet, patriot and exemplary freedom fighter whose powerful words can stir up a storm in one’s heart even today. These immortal lines became a war cry for India’s freedom struggle against the British.His lines of inspirational freedom struggle never existed today without his love and deep knowledge in Urdu.

    He was also the founding member of Hindustan Republican Association (that became Hindustan Socialist Republican Association) whose more popular revolutionary members were Bhagat Singh and Chandrashekhar Azad. He met and became close friends with other leading figures of the revolutionary freedom struggle such as Ashfaqullah Khan, Roshan Singh and Rajender Lahiri.

    If those who hate Urdu thinking it related to Muslims of India are against the ethos of ‘Freedom struggle’ laid by our great leaders who sacrificed their life the nation.

    Jai Hind
