Both the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have agreed that the Central Superior Service (CSS) exam should be in Urdu.
Addressing a seminar on the importance of Quaid-e-Azam and Urdu language organized by Maulana Zafar Ali Trust, PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal said that the education system in Pakistan was unfortunately overshadowed by unelected governments. The performers are also unfamiliar with the names of many celebrities.
He said that Pakistan was an ideology and the dream of Pakistan was hijacked in 1958 after which the civil and military bureaucracy inherited the loyal institutions of the British Crown.
Ehsan Iqbal said that they tried to mold Pakistan in the same structure as the civil-military bureaucracy was trained.
The PML-N leader said that the culture of a country that is deprived of its race is destroyed, Pakistan was an ideology and if political evolution had continued then the dream would have come true.
Besides, addressing the function, PTI Senator Ejaz Chaudhry also highlighted the importance of the Urdu language and said that Prime Minister Imran Khan does not attend any program where any language other than Urdu is spoken.
In addition, he quoted the Prime Minister as saying that Urdu should be popularized and the Urdu language has been made mandatory in any function.
Other speakers at the seminar on Quaid-e-Azam and National Language, including Khalid Mehmood, Dr. Shafiq Jalanhari, also urged the government to formulate a policy that would help in the promotion of the Urdu language.
