    You are mixing up a lot of things.

    Learning foreign languages should be appreciated, but when it comes to official dealings and teaching in schools, it should always be done in the national language. It has been proven world wide, that kids learn in their native/national languages much faster than in a foreign language - say English.

    There is a reason why Germany, France, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Lativa, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, South Korea, China, Russia, Japan, Vietnam, Argentina, Brazil etc etc etc... teach in their native languages and also when on official tours speak only their national language.

    But that does not stop you from learning foreign languages. On the contrary, learning every new languages opens a new world for you. Learn it for fun, for interaction with people but not as a status symbol as is unfortunately the case with English.

    We should have a policy of using both English and Urdu as needed. Yes there should be use of urdu in symbolic roles such as in speeches by the UN, but English should be used in Parliment on matters of budget, etc.
    Most if not all our higher education is in English, and economic terms etc should be discussed in English. There is not even a need to make these principles as there should be a grip on both languages by members of parliament as well as our head of state. Guess a supreme court judge finally saw that clip of our parliamentarians speaking in Urdu.

    Ok lets say I accept your argument about Argenitna and Brazil. Their native people (native Indians?) did not have a developed language and majority of their population today consists of colonial people or a mix that of, but my argument still stands for all those dozens of countries around the world.

    Our language Urdu is one of the most developed languages in every literal sense so why not promote it instead of killing it slowly?

    Nawaz sharif can't speak English well. He is used to deliver speech from a written page.
    This law is made for our PM. He was becoming embarrassment to nation.

    Those arguing should make a note which everyone knows URDU is not native to any province of Pakistan . Agar language import karke impose karni ho toh wahi karo jiski global level pe relevance ho .

    Urdu was contacting lingo before partition ... And now it is national language as per Quaid's wish and according to our constitution too ... So keep away your self to trolling this thread ... This is bad habit of Indians always try to ruin Pakistan related threads ......
