Pakistani media also reported through its sources that action against militant outfits seemed imminent. Chaudhry, however, maintained that his country had nothing to do with the Pulwama attack and the decision to take action against these groups had been made well before the incident.

The problem about that was that even though Hindi is the variety most people speak in India, all the other varieties together make an even bigger number and therefore felt neglected. The present situation for the English language in India still does not look as gloomy, as it was predicted and intended by the Indian Constitution which said that,.
