Islamabad, August 31

For the first time in Pakistan’s history, a university has awarded an MPhil degree in Hindi. Military-run National University of Modern Languages (NUML) here has become the first Pakistani university to award the degree.

NUML student Shahin Zafar is the first student from a Pakistani university to receive an MPhil degree in Hindi.

Her thesis, titled ‘Swatantryottra Hindi Upanyason Mein NasriChittran (1947-2000)’ was supervised by Professor Iftikhar Husain Arif and endorsed by the Higher Education Commission, Dawn News reported.

A university spokesperson was quoted as saying that due to dearth of Hindi experts in Pakistan, Zafar’s thesis was evaluated by two experts from India’s Aligarh Muslim University. — PTI
