Academy of Sciences Makes Effort to Promote Pashto Language

Coinciding with May 29th, National Pashto Language Day, the Pashto Literature Department of the Academy of Sciences announced that serious efforts are underway to promote this national language.

“We have planned short-term and long-term projects. Researchers are working in the fields of folklore and literature, conducting scientific projects, and they are actively going into the field,” Ziaulhaq Sind, a member of the Pashto Literature Department of the Academy of Sciences, told TOLOnews.

At the same time, some university professors, writers, and citizens of the country are also calling for the further development of the nation's languages.

“My suggestion is that the Pashto language should move beyond slogans and in practice become a language of science, a language of technology, a language of curriculum, and official language,” said Khalid Takal, a member of the Academy of Sciences.

“There are various ways to promote the Pashto language and work is ongoing on it. Media plays a significant role in its development; whether it is print media or social media,” Norulhabib Nesar, Deputy Chief Researcher of the Academy of Sciences, told TOLOnews.

“A number of citizens of the country are urging the Ministry of Information and Culture to pay serious attention to the development of the country’s languages,” said Muatasem Billah, a university scholar.

“It is necessary to work more on this language on Google so that we can easily find any text or book from Google,” said Sabir Shams, a resident of Paktia.

“They should strive to make at least one of these languages an international language; like English, Arabic, Italian, and German, which are at the top globally,” said Nik Mohammad, a resident of Kabul.

May 29th or Jawza 8th (solar calendar) coincides with National Pashto Language Day, which is celebrated annually by the country's cultural figures.
