One thought on “Pakistan has abolished English as an official language after almost seven decades of independence from Britain.”

  1. A nation that forgets history is condemned to repeat it. It amounts to inventing. Wheel anew. What a great achivement our Leaders have completed. One hundred years ago Allamah Iqbal said: ” HAITAIRAY Imroze sey NA Aashna FARDA TAIRA “.realty of the times is that there are more English media schools in today’s Pakistan than prepartition days. The rulers prefer their kids to attend English media schools and the change of media will pushing this country further 100 years. The ruling Enlish did make English as official media but never changed the working Persian media for Indian Courts. All that changed was the translation of data for Central Record of lands. That took almost 5 years. The system worked fine for 100 years. Our planners are ill-equipped mentally and Psychologicall to understand the needs of the times and find practical ways of solving national problems.
    It certainly is waste of national time. We’re used to do this. Cheers to our Myopic Leaders.
