ISLAMABAD: For the first time in Pakistan’s history, a Pakistani university has awarded an MPhil degree in Hindi.
Military-run National University of Modern Languages (Numl) 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 Prof Iftikhar Husain Arif (Professor Emeritus Numl) and endorsed by the Higher Education Commission.
A Numl spokesperson said that due to dearth of Hindi experts in Pakistan, Zafar’s thesis was evaluated by two foreign experts from Aligarh Muslim University in India.
