The government of Madhya Pradesh has entrusted Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) with the responsibility of editing and revising its Urdu medium textbooks.
According to Mohammad Ahsan, Regional Director, RC Bhopal, the government of Madhya Pradesh has asked the university to review and edit the textbooks of Urdu medium from first to 12th standards for the academic year 2021-22.
The proposal has been approved by the university authorities as an important step towards the promotion of Urdu education.
In this regard, a workshop for reviewing books on mathematics, environmental studies, social sciences, science, commerce and Urdu language and literature will be organised soon in which teachers and other experts from MANUU College of Teacher Education, Bhopal, will participate and finalise the text.
The university is striving hard to promote and disseminate Urdu language and literature over the years. Last year, MANUU joined hands with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to empower madrassa students in Bihar and help them helped acquire scientific, technical and social skills.
