Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Muhajir is a term vaguely used by some Pakistanis to describe the immigrants, and especially their descendants, who chose to settle in Pakistan and shifted their domicile after partition of British India to Pakistan. Some had participated in the movement for creation of Pakistan in 1947. Most migrants migrated from the Muslim minority provinces to Muslim majority provinces within British India. Their principal language is Urdu but over time their second and third generations have now been assimilated especially in Punjab, Pakistan and now identify themselves as Punjabis with local cultures and traditions and some of them still speak Urdu as Urdu is widely spoken in almost every city of Punjab, Pakistan.show more
