    If you have ''to'' then replace it with Arabic! Some people on here have a major inferiority complex; wannabe gora.

    Let's not go overboard here and make assumptions.

    So speaking Urdu makes you a stone age tribal, old age and as I would say again, "Paindu"?

    I am a proud Paindu then!

    Depends on the level of comfort.

    Mush had a huge following in the USA / UK when he used English in press conferences.

    It really depends on specific leaders.

    I mean why would even be questioning the whole concept of

    "communicating with local people".

    Are we still living in 1800s or what?

    Bhai jaan

    Read the posts admiring Saudis.

    Then understand what I said and why I said.

    Thank you

    On a closing note I would say, tooti hui angrezi bol lain gay just to become more "modren", but won't speak "paindu" Urdu...this is a general observation in the public I have made.

    yet another example of stone age tribal thinking.

    Sorry to see.

    Beleive me,

    I love to speak urdu (Lkhanavi style) among Urdu speaking friends.

    But with Sindhis, I'd use as much Sindhi even tooti phooti.

    With Punjabis I'd use Punjabi even tooti phooti

    When traveling through different countries,

    my first sentence is always local (French, Arabic etc. ) depending on where I am
    then switch to English.



    When traveling to other countries, one cannot even say "I am proud paindu".

    What on earth are you talking about.

    Let's not mix local with international interaction.

    Thank you.

    Some on this thread are already doing so.

    let's become all Biddus and travel on donkeys and sleep on sand. yeah bring in the religion where none should be brought.

    Sadly.

    Why are you comparing two different things?

    I amt talking about official press conferences b/w two leaders or secretaries or whatever.

    There are transnational facilities available and the local language gets translated to either English or into multiple different languages (as in UN).

    Nobody is saying for you to speak Urdu while in Paris or Amsterdam or wherever.

    That's all.

    This should have been done step wise.
    First we should make Urdu our official language in Pakistan and then when it is fully established here, then we should move on to abroad visits.

    I would recommend the following:

    1. Speeches in English in English speaking countries.
    2. Speeches in Urdu in all non English speaking countries.

    Sir
    I guess you make assumptions pretty quick.
    Where did I say we stop using English in Pakistan..?
    Where did I say we stop learning English...?
    Where did I say we stop our education in English.....

    I think before commenting, you should understand what is said before being sarcastic and critical.

    Thanks

    Funny that you are using perfect English to convince others not to speak English.

    hahahaha

    Brilliant Step....Should have done ages ago....
    And @FaujHistorian bhai,Every country/nation promotes its OWN culture,language,etc.You seem to miss this point..........The problem in Pakistan is that we never gave much (deserved) importance to Urdu in national affairs and became so much obsessed with English that now anything that is non English appears lowly to us.Peace

    First off all urdu is mainly 150 years old language. keep this in mind.

    What you say about Urdu is more relevant to urban areas of Punjab and Sindh.

    For the rest of the Pakistan, English has been part and parcel of lives for pretty much the same period as urdu.
