Every country in unique because of the culture and language it represents. In Iran, English language was banned in their schools because they did not want their younger generation to forget their culture and traditions. But in our country, everyone promotes the English Language and those who do not know the language, do not know about the job market. The degree for jobs is not your professional skills but how well can you speak English. If we cannot promote our national language then who can? It is our responsibility to promote our national and beautiful speaking language, Urdu. Moreover, it is the responsibility of educational departments to promote the Urdu language not English. 

If we want our children to be better skilled, we need to focus on these qualifications.
