I read this weekend an article in the BBC that I interpreted as a good thing. The article was discussing a recent decision of Pakistan’s Supreme Court to replace English with Urdu as the official language.
I should say at the outset here that I have never been to Pakistan and know nothing about its languages. So why was I happy to see the Pakistan elevate Urdu as the official language? This is the reason: it shows that the dominance of English can be challenged.
