Naeem Akhtar inaugurates Mehfil-e-Mausiqi at Women’s College

Minister for Education Naeem Akhtar today called for starting a movement for revival of culture from schools and colleges.
Inaugurating a Mehfil-e-Mausiqi at Women’s College MA Road, the Minister said that educational institutes can play a vital role in reviving cultural activities that have remained dormant during the last few years. “Now is the time to take a lead in organising events and teaching students the rich culture of Kashmir,” said Akhter. “Our educational institutes should make revival of culture their main motive.”
The Minister said that mere academic certificates won’t be able to produce successful personalities unless ethos of culture and traditions are imbibed in them.
While welcoming eminent Kashmiri Sufi Vocalist and Composer Dhananjay Koul, the Minister said that it is high time that we take steps to bridge the gap between various communities of Kashmir. Koul performed at the auditorium of Womens College after a gap of 25 years. “I feel that migration of Kashmiri Pandits was unfortunate and Kashmiri society is incomplete without them,” said Akhter. He said that government is committed to bring back the Pandits in a respectable way.
