Around 1,503 men and women in urban and rural areas of 100 districts participated. all four provinces of Pakistan took part in the survey.

To become law, the Senate bill on Arabic teaching now requires approval by the National Assembly.

  • I also support compulsory Arabic classes. If every jew has to learn Hebrew in their schools then why can’t a Muslim learn Arabic in their schools?

  • Simple logic. If every Muslim has to hear the first thing on birth is in Arabic (Azan), last thing he utters on death bed is in Arabic (Kailma) five times a day prayers in Arabic, he/she should rather know the meaning of it instead of rote it out like a parrot. I would go a step further to wuggest making Arabic the National language. Urdu has no roots and is a mixture of languages, while Arabic is inevitable as mentioned above. So, we should be practical.

  • unfortunately, we know more Hindi then urdu

    we need to focus on Arabic more
