Srinagar: Remembering renowned scholar and Kashmiri linguist , professor Mohiuddin Hajini on his 103rd birth anniversary, Nizamuddin Bhat former legislator and VC Muslim Wakf Board in a statement said that such luminaries as him are unique pillars of our cultural edifice raised in their vision and persistence.

Bhat said , Hajini was unique in his concept of Kashmir personality who took pride in its philosophical, literary and spiritual background. It was him who bore many challenges in his dream to see this spirit of Kashmir culture revived for posterity. Formation of Adbee Markz Kamraz in seventies was his conscious effort in this direction , the forum which provided a legitimate platform to litterateurs, poets , writers and linguists of Kashmir and is now raised to an enviable position for rightful exposure of Kashmiri intellectuals and identity lovers.
It was the inherent attraction of the objectives of this brain child of Hajni that Renowned Kashmiri poets and writers got together to display and project the richness of Kashmiri language , it’s distinct thinking and its literary treaure to world outside. One recalls how bright brains like Shujaat Bukhari took up the mission on young shoulders and how lovers of distinct culture like Dr. Aziz Hajni former secretary cultural academy became active partners of the cause and eventually shined as useful brains.
