Lahore HC
Islamabad, Oct 13: Lahore High Court Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif on Tuesday, Oct 12 dismissed a petition seeking direction to the Islamabad government to make Urdu as official language of the country.

The petition was moved by a local resident, Sana Ullah and stated that the father of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, during his address to students in Dhaka in 1948 had announced making Urdu the official language of Pakistan.

He further added that this was not done even after over 62 years and English was made official language of the country.

However, the petitioner and his counsel did not appear before the court to pursue the matter.
