Srinagar: Suhail Salim, a 30-year-old youth from downtown Srinagar, is trying hard to preserve and promote Urdu literature in Jammu and Kashmir.

Through his literary magazine, “Koh-e-Maran,” he aims to provide a platform for the young scholars and writers of the region to showcase their contemporary literary creations, reports ANI.

Hailing from the Rainawari area in central Kashmir’s Srinagar district, Suhail Salim is a passionate advocate for Urdu literature.

Recognizing the need to engage the new generation with this rich language, he conceived the idea of “Koh-e-Maran.”

This quarterly publication, first launched in July 2021, has swiftly gained recognition as a valuable resource for Urdu language students and research scholars in Kashmir, particularly in Srinagar.

“Urdu literature is a treasure trove of wisdom, emotion, and cultural heritage,” Salim said, adding, “Through ‘Koh-e-Maran,’ we seek to revive and rejuvenate this language’s significance in Kashmir. We aim to provide a platform for talented young writers to express themselves and contribute to the literary landscape of our region.”

In his journey of promoting Urdu literature, Salim has already published several books, with a particular focus on women fiction writers. Notable among his publications are “Harfi Shehreen” and “Tabasum Zia Kay Afsanay,” both showcasing the remarkable talent of female voices.
