The Lahore high court has suspended the order on Wednesday to hold the CSS exams in Urdu.

The division bench, which is headed by LHC Chief Justice, dismissed the order and directed the authorities to ensure that CSS exam 2018 will not hold in the Urdu language. The CJ Shah remarked during the court hearing that court could not change languages. While FPSC also challenged the authorities of single bench by stating that it is simply not possible to take exams in the Urdu language as Urdu is not included in the syllabus. However, Urdu is also not compulsory language even in the graduation.

Justice Atir Mahmood also passed the law and filed a petition by Advocate Saifur Rahman saying that a candidate objected to the advertisement of FPSC and was silent about the language in which the examination will be held in 2017. So the petitioner ordered the court to order FPSC further to hold CSS exams in the Urdu language as directed by Supreme Court.

The commission counsel informed the court that arrangements are already being made for transferring the English into Urdu and committee also purposed that recommendations will be made during the time. He also mentioned that matter needs to be considered seriously by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan.
