Urdu Quotations

Urdu can not die out because it has very strong roots in Persia. The language itself is not only just the language of the Muslims, but it's also the language of the Hindus.

Ismail Merchant

I can't understand Urdu, Bahasa or Russian, but when the Pakistani Faiz, the Indonesian Rendra and the Russian Rosdentvensky declaim, I can feel the living throb of rhythm and music, the warmth and passion of their poetry, as do the hundreds, not a mere roomful, of poetry lovers in the audience.

We recognised Urdu as the second official language and made it a medium of examination in all Bihar Public Service Commission tests.
Lalu Prasad Yadav

I speak Urdu quite a lot, too, and I read a lot of Persian.
