In 2000, on an initiative by Bangladesh, the United Nations declared February 21 as the International Mother Language Day, recognising the country’s battle and the sacrifices made for the mother tongue.

In Kashmir, however, the current generation lacks knowledge of Koshur. Earlier, the National Education Policy 2020, which was approved by the Government of India on July 29 2020, has recommended that “wherever possible the medium of instruction in schools until Grade V — preferably until Grade VIII — should be the mother tongue or the local or regional language.”

However, in schools the Kashmiri language book is not available for all classes.
