The 5th International Urdu Conference was started on Thursday with a theme that languages cannot be confined to boundaries and hence there is no need to label Urdu literature as Pakistani or Hindustani.

A large number of literary figures and supporters of Urdu attended the inaugural day of the four-day conference, organised by the Arts Council of Pakistan, The Express Tribune reported.

Arts Council President Muhammad Ali Shah said that the large turnout in such conferences prove that the council was still alive and working to promote the language.

Along with the keynote speakers—leading Urdu literary critic from India Shamim Hanfi and Pakistani Urdu fiction writer Intizar Hussain—Aslam Farrukhi, Dr Pirzada Qasim Raza Siddiqui, Himayat Ali Shair, Fatima Surayya Bajia, Saeed Naqvi (USA) and Durmush Bilger (Turkey) also attended the conference.
