PATNA: Bihar governor R S Gavai on Thursday stressed on the need for maintaining communal harmony for the sake of the nation’s unity. He was speaking here at a function held to commemorate freedom fighter and leader of Urdu movement Syed Shah Mushtaq Ahmad.

Gavai said after coming to know about Shah Mustaq’s life, works and sacrifices, he was full of emotions. "Great men and women are remembered for their work and qualities," he added and called upon people to follow their ideals.
Gavai said he can understand Urdu and "will speak the language fluently one day". He said, "In my capacity as governor, I will compel the state government to take every step for promotion of the world’s most beautiful language," he said referring to Urdu.
Gavai said art, literature and culture have been enriched by the language which should not only be preserved, but propagated as well. The function had been organised by Urdu Council, Hind. Others who spoke included Aslam Azad MLC, Wahab Ashrafi, Khurshid Parvez Siddiqui, Shanur Rahman, Aslam Jawedan and Rehan Ghani.
(This is the height of Muslim Appeasement by pseudo-secularist.Except India, Pakistan and Bangladesh nowhere Urdu is recognised as official language of Muslims. Quran is also in Arabic language. In spite of this the pseudo-secularist call Urdu as World’s most beautiful language ! Today when Urdu is most popularly used by the world’s dreaded terrorists for communication, how can it be called beautiful ? On the contrary it should be called as terrorists language. What about our Sanskrit language?- It is Dev bhasha (God’s Language). It is a very well known fact this is also called ‘Mother of all languages’ as it is easy to learn other languages if one knows Sanskrit. The Governor never commented about Sanskrit! What a shameful thing. – Editor)
