css exams

Earlier this week, the Senate had passed a resolution to allow Central Superior Services (CSS) candidates to take their exams in our national language, Urdu.

According to Urdupoint, Senator Sirajul Haq was the one who presented the resolution in the upper house.

Giving examples of countries like China and Japan, Amir Sirajul Haq demanded that applicants should be given the option to take CSS exams in Urdu as well.

 “We can also progress by holding the CSS exams in Urdu. Urdu language is recognition of Pakistan nation and its culture, therefore it is inevitable the language should be given constitutional status”

India Copies Pakistan’s CSS Exams

 

State Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Ali Muhammad Khan said that there are six compulsory and 45 optional subjects in the CSS exam. Moreover, he mentioned that all compulsory subjects were taught at universities in English.

Using that argument, he supported his stance that CSS candidates should be allowed to take the CSS exams in their choice of language.

The debate concluded with the Senate’s verdict that Urdu be added as an optional language in the exams along with English.

Some think it will make no significant difference.

While others are sharing the news on social media as “good news”, as it will help promote our national language.

What do you think? Will it prove to be a good idea?
