Overview: Hindi is an official language of India, spoken by an estimated 180,000,000 people. Colloquial Hindi is mutually intelligible with Urdu, yet due to religious nationalism and communal tensions, speakers of both Hindi and Urdu frequently assert that they are distinct languages. Speakers of Hindi typically practice Hinduism . The Hindi people cluster encompasses numerous castes, tribes and religious communities mainly within India.
