Srinagar: The first Kashmiri language
daily of Jammu and Kashmir hit the newsstands in Srinagar and
other major towns of the Valley.

The daily, named `Kahwet` which means touchstone in
Kashmiri, was launched by state minister for higher education
Abdul Gani Malik at the Sher-i-Kashmir International
Conference Centre (SKICC) on the banks of Dal Lake here.
Aakash Amin, editor of Kahwet, said, "We want to
promote our mother tongue and keep it alive. We are hopeful
that the daily will play a major role in this regard."

Amin asked the state government to play a proactive
role in protecting Kashmiri language from extinction.
Another Kashmiri language newspaper, Sangarmaal, which
is published by Kashmir media group, will soon start being
printed daily instead of weekly.
