Meanwhile, the store manager is being praised for answering the reporter. In the video, she can be heard saying, “I don’t want to give you any explanation. You can do anything.

However, It is a common practice in India to have versions of the brand name in multiple languages, which in a way reflects the diversity of the language culture in India. Historically Urdu has been a part of the cultural history of the Indian subcontinent, according to historians, the language developed in the northern part of India.

Currently, Urdu is the official language in Pakistan and is spoken in both India and Pakistan. Although it is the official language of Pakistan, the most widely spoken language in Pakistan is Pakistani Punjabi. According to Wiki data, about 5% of people in India speak Urdu.

Other places where Urdu translation can be easily found are currency notes, railway station boards, etc.
