Mother Tongue Day
Pakistan National Council of Arts (Islamabad)
To commemorate the International Mother Language Day, the Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) arranged an event on the 20th of February, 2019 where Prof. Dr. Wiqar Ali Shah was one of the main speakers. He insisted upon the adoption of Pashto as one of the national languages of Pakistan and stressed the need of its learning especially amongst the Pashtoons. He warned that its neglect will put a negative effect on the whole nation. His motive at the end was:
“Pashto Waya, Pashto Leeka, Pashto Lwala– Speak Pashto, Write Pashto, Read Pashto”.
