Jammu and Kashmir government will soon recommend Gojri language for inclusion in the Eighth Schedule of the Indian constitution, a state minister has said. […]
He said Gojri is an important tribal language which is spoken in different parts of the world.
“However, Jammu and Kashmir state is considered as its epicentre,” he said.
Mr. Altaf said the State government headed by Omar Abdullah is committed to promote all regional languages including Gojri.
He said Gojri is one of the richest languages of the state in terms of modern and traditional literature.
The minister impressed upon the Academy to preserve the dying heritage of Gujjar and Bakerwal community and give a boost to the writers, artists and poets living in difficult conditions so that they may publish their work and explore their skills in a better way.
