Yes I agree..but only on Internet

Urdu is popular around the world via Internet, no denial. We dont want its popularity rather we want it in our practical lifes as it is a language and not a programme or festival which requires popularity.
I feel your focus should be on more giving its significance rather presenting it as a package. We appreciate your efforts, but in practical people around you are not serious, and to make URDU a compulsory subject everywhere we want a resolution be pass.
Make something big out of the visit of Vice President.
