'Idea of Pakistan in Bengal Muslim Anglo Press'

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 12:38:19 PM, Special Correspondent

Urdu press and India's freedom struggle

The history of India's Independence will be incomplete without the mention of the role played by Urdu »

Hyderabad: Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), Centre for the Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy, organized a lecture, entitled, “The idea of Pakistan in the Bengal Muslim Anglo Press – Star of India: 1932-1949”, on 16th August, 2010, in the conference hall, MANUU Campus.


Dr. Thiery DiCostanzo, of Starsbourg University, France delivered the lecture focusing on role of the English press owned by Muslims during the pre-independence era of 1930s – 1940s.


Based on the Empirical research findings of his study, Dr. Thierry analyzed the case of the “Star of India”, a daily evening newspaper, published from Calcutta.


He presented his case material and discussed, referring to the then press coverage on the idea of the creation of Pakistan, as to how Muslims had perceived it as well as the responses of national leaders on the issue of separate state.


He argued that the English media which was owned by the elite Muslims during those days could not flash an outlook on the perceptions of Muslim masses on the Two-Nation Theory.


Faculty members across all the departments in the University attended the lecture and participated in the discussions after the lecture.


The CSSEIP’s In-charge Director, Dr. P.H. Mohammad, chaired the session.


K.M. Ziyauddin, Assistant Professor of CSSEIP offered vote of thanks.
