تخریبی انقلاب

اِس ہفتہ میں جو انقلاب برپا ھوا ھے شاید ہی کبھی ھوا ھوگا۔

میرے ظالم-عزیز روزنامہ انقلاب کی زباں کی زبوں حالی کے کیا کہنے۔ یہ ایک دکھ بھری کہانی ھے، آپ کے آنسو نکل آئینگے۔ خیر...
کل انقلاب میں صفحۂ اوّل پر جو تصویر تھی اس کے نیچے عبارت میں لفظ کِیوبِک استعمال ھوا تھا جو یقیناً لفظ مَکعَب ھونا چاہئے تھا۔
ساتھ ہی الماری کیلئے لفظ کَبَاٹ کا استعمال کیا گیا تھا۔ یہاں یہ قابلِ ذکر بات ھیکہ گنواروں کا لفظ کباٹ/کپاٹ انگریزی لفظ کَپ بُورڈ کی عام فہم بگڑی شکل ھے۔

آج تو انقلاب نے ایک اور لفظ استعمال کیا، گَھاس لِیٹ۔ اِشارہ دراصل مِٹّی کے تیل کی جانب تھا۔ یہ بھی ایک گنواروں کا لفظ ھے جو اب کم استعمال ھوتا ھے۔ مراٹھی والے پہلے اسے رَاکِیل بُلاتے تھے جو رَاک آئِل (چٹانی تیل) کی بگڑی شکل تھی، لیکن اب کِیرُوسِین مروّج ھے۔

کیا اب ھماری یہی اوقات ہیکہ ھم ان جاہل-اردو والوں کے زیرِ نگیں رہیں؟

ماضی میں بھی عام فہمی کی آڑ میں ان حضرات نے اردو کو رُسوا کیا ھے؛
جگہ/زمیں کیلئے لفظ پلاٹ کا استعمال تو انکے لئے فطری ھے۔ لیکن اِسکے لئے کوئی مناسب لفظ ڈھونڈ نکالنا درکنار۔
پیمائش میں مربّع فٹ کیلئے یہ لفظ اِسکُوَائر استعمال کرتے ہیں۔
اعزاز جیسے عام فہم لفظ کو ایوارڈ سے چُھپا دیا گیا ھے۔

سچ ھے اردو والوں سے کوئی "جس تھالی میں کھاتے ھیں اُسی میں چِھید کرنا" سیکھے۔

no wonder
i have an 'urdu-speaking' back ground and have recently got married in Khoja (Shia's from Gujrat India now in Pakistan for more than half of a century).
They speak terrible Urdu
Cubaat (Almaari) is one word that is spoken as though its a genuine word!!

Madam Paheli,

Thanks for visiting & commenting here. I have no aversion towards words like kabaat etc. One could use these words in verbal & informal communication vis-a-vis trying to avoid them. All that I objected to was the fact that it would be a disservice to the language if you used such slang & second hand words in literary work. It was the fact that Inqilaab was an Urdu newspaper using such words indiscriminately, that irritated me. I am a customer of Inqilaab & thus have every right to demand good quality. I consider web-logs to be a consumer forum in that respect.

If you don't have an Urdu blog, or would like to comment in Urdu, you will find many good bloggers around ready to help you start writing in Urdu.

Dear Urdudaan,

I think you should write them a letter. Tell them that you and many other Urdulovers find such phrases to be not only irritating but also abusive; like Urdu has no words for Kabbat and cubic. Give them a link to your post and show them that we share this feeling with you.
