"Every nation needs some marks of identity. Language is the prime mark of identification of any nation. People speak different languages in different provinces. However, Urdu is spoken and understood in all provinces of Pakistan. Quaid e azam declared urdu as the national language.

The national language creates a feeling of unity and national cohesion. Urdu created unity among the people. Many Muslim leaders like Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, Abdul Majeed Sindhi, Allama Iqbal, Hasrat Mohani, Allama Shibli Nomani, Quaid-e-Azam and many others favored Urdu."
