Until a quarter of a century ago the debate whether Urdu should be adopted as the medium of instruction or not would come up in conversations. Now rarely does one hear such arguments that used to take place at conferences, in newspapers and magazines and staffrooms of schools and colleges. Moreover urdu as a subject is not present in the bachelors curriculum.It is the upmost duty of the educational system to give the langauge the importance and boost it actually requires.
