Many social media users reacted to Naseeruddin Shah’s comment.
A user wrote “That’s great. Most people speak Sindhi in Sindh. This includes almost all rural and semi-urban Urdu and Pashto-speaking communities. In Karachi, a lot of my Urdu friends understand Sindhi and a lot can speak it,”
Yet another user wrote “Please correct yourself. Sindhi is an official language in Sindh province. Sindhi is spoken in Karachi, Hyderabad and other cities and villages of Sindh. Naseeruddin Shah has no adequate knowledge of languages but wants to portray himself as an expert, as an authority in languages.
Naseer needs to understand that every Sindhi, Baloch, Punjabi etc speak their mother languages.
