Urdu is spoken worldwide by between sixty and seventy million people. The language, which is mainly spoken in Asian countries such as Pakistan and India, is important for building and/or cementing trade relations in the growing economies of Asia.
The background and origins of Urdu
Urdu is a member of the Indo-European language family. It is written from right to left in the Nastaʿlīq script. It is very similar to Hindi, although the languages are becoming increasingly different thanks to various external influences, like the use of Arabic.
After independence, Pakistan recognised a very Persian form of Urdu as the national language. Strangely enough, the greatest number of speakers of Urdu live in India, while only a minority live in Pakistan. In most cases, the language is used as a common language between the various dialects, while Urdu in Pakistan is used in government.
