Urdu is our native tongue. People in Islamabad, on the other hand, prefer to speak English and are less proud of their own language. It has been noted that not being able to communicate fluently in English has become a sign of status for many people, and they are assessed accordingly. However, Pashto, Punjabi, Balochi, and Pahari are some of the languages spoken in Islamabad. As previously said, the residents of Islamabad come from various areas and other nations, therefore they are always trying new things and looking for anything that will provide them with a unique experience.
