The government has no plans to end the 18th Constitutional Amendment, Federal Law Minister Farogh Naseem told the media on Wednesday.
He said the issue hadn’t ever been discussed during a federal cabinet meeting. He was speaking during a law conference at the International Islamic University in Islamabad.
Unless we make use of modernity in our laws, we still remain behind, he said. He also said that the Supreme Court had decided that Urdu will be the language used in official works and that should be implemented.
Naseem said they place a lot of importance on the law. He also said that regarding military courts, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi is in contact with the opposition. He said the opposition’s stance on the issue is divided, as some are for the military courts while others have issues with them.
