Learn Urdu to win people's hearts: Karnataka CM to police
Wednesday January 1, 2014 10:38 PM, News Network

In a pleasant acknowledgement of the power of Urdu, which is wrongly considered as the language of Muslims, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah Monday asked Bangalore police to start learning Urdu to understand how to be polite and win hearts of the people.

"The police must learn to use the Urdu language to understand how to be polite. If they learn to use Urdu, they can win support of the people. You cannot use the same language with all people,'' Siddaramaiah while addressing a function to celebrate 50 years of Bangalore police.

The Chief Minister asked the traffic police to curb speaking on phones while driving, jumping signals and other offences. "These are small issues but if small issues of law are addressed a lot of traffic problems can be solved. Even the educated take small liberties with traffic laws,'' he said.

"Buildings and equipment would amount to nothing if people did not feel secure", the Chief Minnister said while opening of a Rs 23-crore hi-tech traffic management centre in the city.

Urdu, born and grown up in India, is the language wrongly considered as the langauge of Muslims. Though, the language is spoken by a vast majority of Muslims in the Indian subcontinent, there are a notable number of people who are proud od the Urdu langauge and use it as their mother tongue.

In India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is known for reading his speeches in Urdu. Besides, the Indian parliament regualrly sees the legislators reciting Urdu couplets to prove a point.

The Bollywood, the Indian film industry, depends on the Urdu language for dialogues and lyrics. There are cases when a Bollywood film got hit just because of Urdu dialogues and songs.
