THIS is apropos of Dr Mehmood Hussain’s letter ‘Remembering Maulvi Abdul Haq’ (Aug 28). It is indeed extremely regrettable that the death anniversary of Baba-i-Urdu Maulvi Abdul Haq went unnoticed. In fact, the services of Maulvi Abdul Haq for the cause and promotion of our national language are practically inexplicable.

Our electronic media failed to rise to the occasion. It even didn’t bother to present a special documentary or give an extensive coverage to this important event. This serious lapse on the part of our media is an unpardonable sin. Let us sincerely hope that it is not repeated in future.

This is regrettable we promote that much Indian Actors and our politician on 9 o clock headlines .when we ask to our young generation who is your favorite Hero they swiftly say Indian or Hollywood actors name .This is not their fault .This is because of our media who extremely promote Bollywood and Hollywood actors and make them to inspired .We forget our history our heroes ,culture, norms. I deeply regret the media and people don’t know how to promote our Heroes and even don’t know how to give respect.
