Replacement of Urdu Words with Hindi Words from Zee-TV Hindi News

Dear Shri Subhash Chandra ji: Saadar Namaskar:

In the first instance, let us introduce ourselves to you. We are an association of Hindu Americans organized and existing under the laws of the State of New York. We work for Hindu Unity, organize seminars on terrorism and try to strengthen Indo-American relationship.

It gives us pleasure to welcome you to this country. We are very happy to know that you are the Chairman of the Board for Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation of India. We also feel very proud that a very powerful and highly placed person of your stature is working whole-heartedly for Hindu cause.

However, from our observations we have painfully noted that Zee-TV Hindi News of which you are the Chairman is unnecessarily using Urdu words in Hindi News for which Hindi words are easily available.

Hindi is our national language. It is our duty to promote and propagate Hindi language to masses. We are enclosing herewith a list (about 10 pages) of some of the equivalent Hindi words which could easily replace Urdu words.

Hence, we shall be highly grateful if you could kindly take appropriate action to ensure that, as far as possible, Urdu words are avoided in Hindi News.

With highest regards,

Narain Kataria

urdu is not a language of muslims only,its the language of india only,now a days the people are avoiding urdu but in today's generation also nobody says that
"aaiye apna isthaan grahan karen"
we only say "aaiye baithiye".
nobody says "mujhe jal deN" we say "mujhe paani dijiye"
some people hate urdu coz it came from arbic language but there r no. of non muslim poets who have used urdu better than the muslim n still they love urdu
as hindi is our lovely language urdu is also rule our hearts.
