Persian was the official language of the Indian subcontinent for almost a thousand years. The language was replaced with English after the British took over control of the area.
The Persian language and literature hold a very important place in Pakistan’s society, and the language is still being taught at universities and colleges.
Persian manuscripts are being kept in museums, and public and private libraries in all parts of Pakistan.
Most of the work of the great philosopher and thinker, Muhammad Iqbal Lahori, is in the Persian language. Without knowing Persian one cannot properly understand his message.
