Why not Urdu? — 1 Comment

  1. Urdu is an imported potpourri language which is mixture of many established languages. It is limited to the subcontinent.Adopting Urdu as national language was main cause of alienation of East Pakistan leading finally to it’s separation.. instead of making Urdu official language we should even replace it as national language with Arabic. Arabic has full time relevance and application in our lives whether we like it or not. We use it five times a day in our prayers whether and there is no alternative to it. Knowing Arabic at least we can understand our prayers and the holy Quran and we will not be dependent on the Mulla for translation and interpretation of the Quran.. What has urdu in it other than Mirza Ghalib’s poetry. Let us be practical and pragmatic.
