The Punjabi language has a spiritual background. It is groomed by the Sufi saints Baba Farid, Baba Nanak, Shah Hussain, Sultan Bahu, Bulleh Shah, Waris Shah, Khwaja Ghulam Farid, Mian Muhammad Bakhsh. Because of that, the Punjabi language has a potential for wisdom related inventions and intellects to develop the moral character for the good deeds of life and spiritual development for the life of the hereafter.
Punjabi emerged as an independent language in the 12th century. Fariduddin Ganjshakar is generally recognized as the first major poet of the Punjabi language. Revered by Muslims, he is considered one of the fifteen Sikh bhagats and selections from his work are included in the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh sacred scripture.
Punjabi language is older than Urdu and has a richer cultural and spiritual asset as compared to Urdu, which was planted in Punjab by the Britishers for their political pity interests, but Urdu is a virus in the cultural and spiritual grooming of Punjabis.
Invention and intellect branch off into skill and wisdom. For skill related inventions and intellects usually international Lingua-Franca plays an essential role, but for wisdom related inventions and intellects, spiritually rich language is of vital importance, especially if it is your mother language.
Punjabis are required to adopt English as international Lingua-Franca and Punjabi as their national language.
