On one end of the spectrum, there are parties which accord primary importance to ethnic identity and language as building blocks for political representation. Those who place ethnic and linguistic identity above any other marker of identity are usually, but not exclusively, known as nationalists. Those in the opposite camp, generally right-wing Islamist parties and religious groups, see Pakistan as a religious state with no room for the recognition and promotion of ethnic and linguistic diversity. This division seems to have blurred a bit in recent months.
Pakistan is one of the most populous countries with diversity in language and culture. Urdu is the national language and English is the official language.
