PTVís Saraiki channel to promote areaís culture: PM PDF Print E-mail

ISLAMABAD, Apr 21 (APP): Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Monday said southern Punjab is rich in cultural heritage which needs to be promoted for next generations. In a message on the launch of Saraiki channel by Pakistan Television (PTV) in Multan, Prime Minister Gilani said the step would help promote the rich heritage of ‘Saraiki Belt’.

The Prime Minister said Multan’s land is fertile with unique cultural traditions which need to be preserved through proper projection.

He said the start of channel would not only project the widely spoken Saraiki language of the area, but also help local artistes find a platform to polish their mastery.

Gilani said his government would focus on preserving cultures of various areas in the country, which altogether formed a beautiful combination of civilization.

Saraiki also called Multani, is an Indo-Aryan language mostly spoken in Southern Punjab and northern Sindh by about 30 million people, according to a 1998 census.

Saraiki is widely spoken in southern Punjab in Dera Ghazi Khan, Multan, Mailsi, Mianwali, Vehari, Rahim Yar Khan, Rajan Pur and Bahawalpur. It is also spoken in NWFP areas specially in Dera Ismail Khan, Kulachi, Tank and Lakki Marwat.
