‚ÄčOur TV news channels are indulging in projecting of fast speaking Urdu news to copy and over-take the fast news speakers of English TV and radio of the western countries. This we should condemn it as our Urdu TV news readers are indulging in meanest copy culture to 'impress' us. Islam preaches moderation in all matters of life.

Urdu is one of the biggest languages of the India-Pakistan sub continent spread world wide and we have been following it since generations with slow speaking of Urdu so that we should all understand it particularly the elders and seniors.

Hence we should all request our Honorable Prime Minister, Mr. Imran Khan to issue orders to Pakistani TV channels to avoid copy culture of the west and direct their news readers to speak in slow Urdu as before so that our elders, young generation living in the west, sick and disabled and others could understand it easily.

All our friends and readers are also requested to support this initiative in the best interest of our language. Our P.M. is already fighting corruption and fraud and we all support him to achieve his goal to make Pakistan a corrupt- free state.
