Islamabad—Urdu version of the book titled ‘Pakistan Environmental Challenges and Measures for Pollution,’ written by Dr Mahmood A Khawaja was launched here at a ceremony on Friday. The ceremony was organized by Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI).
Secretary Ministry of Climate Change Syed Abu Ahmad Akif said Urdu translation of a book on environment was a great endeavour for the promotion of national language and ensuring outreach to the general public.
He said English language is one of the gifts of colonialism, which has subdued the local language Urdu. He said this book is an important source of knowledge which requires more dissemination.
It is important to have a book in Urdu language on scientific subjects, for a better outreach to the general public.
