Revocation of invitation to Pakistani scholars for Urdu meet "sheer madness": Katju

Former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju has termed the decision not to allow Pakistani Urdu scholars to India the World Urdu Conference as “sheer madness”. In a Facebook post, Katju said, “Hadd ho gayi paagalpan ki… I strongly protest against the revocation of invitations to Pakistani Urdu scholars to the World Urdu Conference to be held from March 18 to 20 in Delhi in the auditorium of SCOPE (Standing Conference of Public Enterprises), Lodi Road.”
Appealing to all invitees to refuse to attend the conference to protest against this ridiculous act, Katju says, “This stupidity has crossed all limits, and is an insult to Urdu, a great language born in India, which is falsely branded as a language of Muslims and a foreign language by bigots.”
