    Teach in mother tongue only National Language

  2. i dont think language is our problem at all. teach in any language u like ..the actual change is needed in the mindset . to progress we need to induce rational thinking and evidence based reasoning in our culture. our language represents our culture . and it lacks these things. introduce rationality into the culture and i think thers no reason we cant fill our literature with real science and knowledge in no time.
    on the other hand even if our children use english as a primary medium , and the culture stays the same . there will be no significant difference . english speaking idiot is no different than urdu speaking idiot .
