End Discrimination against Punjabi Language and Speakers in Pakistan

End Discrimination against Punjabi Language and Speakers in Pakistan
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

This petition is a "Call to Action" to preserve and further the Punjabi language in Pakistan, particularly in the province of Punjab where over 75% speak Punjabi as their mother tongue. Punjabi is also the largest language in Pakistan by the number of speakers. Yet the language has no official status in Pakistan even in the province of Punjab. This is why the language may die out in a few generations if steps are not taken to preserve and support its use in education, provincial assembly and media.
