Hmar language has been given due recognition by the Assam Central University. Now, students can take up Hmar MIL as an optional subject up to degree level (BA).
“The Academic Council of Assam Central University on April 23, 2010 passed an agenda accepting the Hmar language to be one of the MIL subjects,” said a press statement released by the Hmar Literature Society, Manipur.
Hmars are one of the major tribes living in Assam’s Cachar and NC Hills area. “The decision to this effect was taken in view of the consistent efforts of the Hmar MIL Monitoring Committee, Guwahati and the Hmar Literature Society, Assam,” Hmar Literature Society secretary Pu L. Ruoivel Pangamte said. It is a major milestone and blessing for the Hmars to mark the Gospel Centenary year celebrations, he added.
