Nastaliq is modified Arabic Script only, it was first modified to suit Persian phonology, then re modified to suit Indian phonology.Urdu is written is nastaliq or shekasteh nastaliq all of which originate from persianate culture.
It has nothing to do with Arabic script. Today unfortunately Pakistanis push the Arabic script online as they want Arabic as their national language.
Persian was a modified Arabic script. Urdu is using the modified Persian script that is used for calligraphy in poetry. Another form called shekasteh was used by Mughals for Dari Persian.
And a new version called shekasteh Nastaliq developed for official uses of Urdu by Mughals and others around bahadur shah zafar time.
To give you an idea, look
The modern forms are best in Jameel noori nastaliq kasheeda aka shekasteh nastaliq. And jameel noori nastaliq aka refined nastaliq
You won't find a single pakistani do such pains what I did coz urdu is indian language at heart.
And yes I use my tablet in shekasteh Nastaliq in urdu language. Yes to install the fonts was a damn long frustrated effort to success. But worth it. If anyone interested on how to lemme know
Likewise there is medieval poetry of Khariboli and Brajbhasha often referred as Bhakti kal poetry. Jatmal wrote Gora Badal ki katha in 15th Century. Khariboli(which will later referred as Hindi, Urdu, Hindustani etc.) is spoken in rural areas of Uttar Pradesh and Delhi even before the arrival of Muhammad Ghauri in India. As I mentioned Urdu is the just Muslim variant of Hindi or Hindustani.I agree with the first paragraph. Yes I've mentioned that zaban a urdu e mualla didn't exist until shah jehan taj mahal time. I've clearly explained that Deccani was taken to Dehli around 1700 by wali Aurangabadi and the persian poets mixed dari with it and called it rekhta. When they perfected it for darbari use it became a language of grandeur call the long Urdu phrase. Later when British destroyed the Grandeur it came to be know as just Urdu to represent a horde.
Later the other people fallen kingdoms with a similar history attached Urdu to their language which had become a Neanderthal lect. Indeed the same has happened to older languages now considered dialects of hindi due to loss of political power or status of might.
Hindi is the newest language of india If you don't count Hinglish
Zh is pronounced something like R-L, unique to Tamil and Malayalam.A dot would have helped us in Tamil and Malayali pronunciation also, of words such as 'Kadagham', 'Kazhagam', Kozhikode', etc. - कझ़गम, कोझ़ीकोड.
A dot signifies that the consonant should be pronounced a little differently, nothing more than that. Now we do not know how to write that correctly.
What are you talking is far from reality. The Urdu language was confined to Mughal elites and not a common man's . The Hindi we speak at home is normal, the Bollywood has more contributed to Persianization of Hindi, many of us would admire Urdu song but none of us have any interest in talking in Persian loaded language. Beside, claiming Urdu as original languages like saying German is derived frim Yiddish language.Yes indeed I'm aware. I was talking about it being a mother tongue of Brahmins in the past not now. I apologise if you misunderstood.
Now it's more of an acquired native language like Desi English is to many Indians. It's not second language but it's neither a mother tongue.
The harm is it would not serve the idea of hindi and stop the bigotry towards Urdu. There was an episode 7 of samvidhan it was about language choice 1947. Abdul Kalam Azad ji gave a fabulous speech about how we will never become a great nation in the world if we don't adopt Hindustani as offical. And indeed we haven't. We haven't done what bapu wanted.
As you are well aware Manak or shuddh hindi are the only forms available in education as medium of instruction and books. I've personally talked to thousands of such hindi medium students who say hindi is just simply not enough for them and learning Urdu phonetics and English language is must or they are called adivasi Gao wala and so on.
The saddest part is these are not even Hindustani language but speakers of rural languages which have been demolished as dialects of hindi no less.
The fact that BIMARU states represent the status of these very people saddens me.
There are many more sounds that come from majorly Arabic, Persian and Turkik languages which are also not present in hindi.
Indeed hindi is nothing but sanskrtized Urdu and therin lies the problem of artificial language that nobody speaks naturally and is baffled at as you say
I have been a bit surprised at some of the contributions.What are you talking is far from reality. The Urdu language was confined to Mughal elites and not a common man's . The Hindi we speak at home is normal, the Bollywood has more contributed to Persianization of Hindi, many of us would admire Urdu song but none of us have any interest in talking in Persian loaded language.
