Background[ edit ] The current nations, Pakistan and Bangladesh, were part of an undivided India during the British colonial rule. Bengali is an Eastern Indo-Aryan language that arose from the eastern Middle Indic languages around CE  and developed considerably during the Bengal Renaissance.
History of Hindustani Urdu, like Hindi, is a form of Hindustani. Urdu words originating from Chagatai and Arabic were borrowed through Persian and hence are Persianized versions of the original words. Urdu and Turkish borrowed from Arabic and Persian, hence the similarity in pronunciation of many Urdu and Turkish words.
The Persian language was introduced into the subcontinent a few centuries later by various Persianized Central Asian Turkic and Afghan dynasties including that of Mahmud of Ghazni. Hindustani was promoted in British India by British policies to counter the previous emphasis on Persian.
This literary standard called "Hindi" replaced Urdu as the official language of Bihar inestablishing a sectarian divide of "Urdu" for Muslims and "Hindi" for Hindus, a divide that was formalized with the division of India and Pakistan after independence though there are Hindu poets who continue to write in Urdu to this day, with post-independence examples including Gopi Chand Narang and Gulzar.
There have been attempts to "purify" Urdu and Hindi, by purging Urdu of Sanskrit words, and Hindi of Persian loanwords, and new vocabulary draws primarily from Persian and Arabic for Urdu and from Sanskrit for Hindi. English has exerted a heavy influence on both as a co-official language.
Urdu in Pakistan has undergone changes and has incorporated and borrowed many words from regional languages, thus allowing speakers of the language in Pakistan to distinguish themselves more easily and giving the language a decidedly Pakistani flavour.

Despite this, Urdu was chosen as a token of unity and as a lingua franca so as not to give any native Pakistani language preference over the other. Urdu is therefore spoken and understood by the vast majority in some form or another, including a majority of urban dwellers in such cities as KarachiLahoreOkara DistrictSialkotRawalpindiIslamabadMultanFaisalabadHyderabadPeshawarQuettaJhangSargodha and Skardu.
