Excerpt

The story of Urdu/Hindi, the lingua franca of the Indo-Pakistani people, is the story of one language with two separate scripts and with two names: Hindi, when written in Nagari, and Urdu, when written in Arabic. This book is thorough, complete, and free from religious dogmas, and the theories it elaborates are based solely on evidence derived from studies of evolution, integrated with studies of man’s oldest language, Sumerian. It exposes the Europeans’ policy (led by British India) in pioneering the concept of mythical races linked to linguistic families, i.e., Semitic, and Aryan/IE, which led to anti-Semitism, religious nationalism, and India’s religionbased partition and politics. the story of the division of language mirrors the latter policy, which is unraveled in the book. Adopting the most recent evidence of the evolution of human language, starting from an early base in Africa, the book records its dispersal outward from the Middle East, or Mesopotamia, by farmers, and traces the creation of new names, such as ie, Semitic, and Dravidian.

The book presents a cumulative/synthetic plan describing Urdu’s evolution over some 10,000–12,000 years with major contributions from India’s two oldest language families, Austric-Munda and Dravidian, followed much later by others such as Sanskrit, Arabic, and Persian; this apparently unsettles the currently held view of Urdu/Hindi as a daughter dialect of Sanskrit, a 19 -century idea rooted in Hindu religious myth, the German myth of an Aryan race and its supposed hypothetical language proto-Indo European (PIE) — a scholarly invention — the presumed mother of ie, skt, and grandmother of Latin and other languages which have been said to be derived from them. a major and also unique segment on Mesopotamian languages reveals the origin of Dravidian, Semitic, Arabic, and Indo-European (IE), including Sanskrit, in the Middle East as hybrids of the simplest Sumerian, Elamite, etc., refuting all racial/religious claims of pie, heb, and skt. the evolution of English is cited in parallel in the book, and is shown to originate not from a dissolution of PIE/ Gothic but to be a cumulative from Pictic, Celtic, Latin, Old French, and AngloSaxon German.
