Urdu is a member of the Indo-European family of languages and is closely related to Hindi - the two languages are mutually intelligible. It is the national language of Pakistan.
There are 66 million native speakers of Urdu in Pakistan, India (where it is one of 23 official languages) and Afghanistan.
Urdu is written right to left using the Persian alphabet - which in turn is an extension of the Arabic script with four additional characters giving it 32 characters. Vowels are written as diacritics above the cursive script - the script itself represents only consonants.
