Hi,What if one side is not good in Urdu and the other side is not good in English , in this case what will be the language of the oath? Sign language?
In my view the language of correspondence (Written or spoken) in all government departments inside Pakistan should be only Urdu. Just by implementing this single thing, imagine how many jobs will be created for translators in Pakistan as all foreigners in Pakistan have to get docs translated into Urdu from an authorized translator. For any transaction like marriage certificates or power of attorneys etc…..
Also our passports and NICOP should have the holders details in both Urdu and English and not just English.
The media has a big part to play in bring back Urdu by appointing linguistics to check the news / reports before a broadcast. People say there are some modern words which have no Urdu equivalent, well There was a time when Urdu was formed from scratch using Arabic and Persian and Turkish words, why not use the same strategy again? A language can keep up with the modern era provided an institution is made to enhance the develop the language with time and also steps should be taken to make sure such institutions are doing their job properly.
