Renowned scholar Muhammad Hassan Hasrat presided over the event. In his presidential address, he said that any language is the nation’s identity. The Balti language is spoken by 600,000 people. Ghulam Hassan Hasna, Fida Hussain Balti, Major Muhammad Iqbal, and other writers played a vital role in the propagation of the Balti language, he said.
Qasim Naseem said Muhammad Hussain Hasna played a significant role in the Balti script. He believes that software should be developed to promote and develop this language, and it should be incorporated in school curricula. Talking about Shina language, Akbar Hussain said that 800,000 people speak it.
He discussed Shina’s progress and history, and praised Khalifa Rehmat Jan Malang and Abdullah Malang for their contributions to Shinaz’s poetry.

He gave a beautiful overview of Sindhi language and literature history, stating that research on Sindhi language and literature was done at Sindh University, Shah Latif University, and Karachi University, as well as the Sindhi Literary Board, Sindhi Adabi Sangat, and other institutions. In this regard, the services of Ji Alana, Rasool Bakhsh Palijo, Sheikh Ayaz, Fehmida Hussain and others are commendable.
Dr Manzoor Weserio said a lot of academic research has been done on Shah Latif, and many other researchers have also done a lot of work on Shah Latif. The comparative study of Pakistani languages is quite valuable.
