Why in English?


Dawn already has an English television channel, Geo is coming up with an English channel, Express TV is coming up with an English language news channels along with a daily newspaper and Wateen telecommunication recently announced that they will be bringing out an English language daily newspaper from Lahore.

My point of concern is that who will read all these English language newspapers and watch news channels with anchor speaking in all possible local and foreign accents? People in Pakistan are so busy eking out a living and still barely managing to buy flour and sugar that they have stopped sending their children to school any more.

Who will understand the lingo?
