Pashto, along with Dari, is one of the two official languages of Afghanistan and the second largest language of Pakistan. It is spoken by 50 million native speakers. There are three main varieties of Pashto: Northern Pashto, spoken mainly in Pakistan; Southern Pashto, and Central Pashto, spoken mainly in Pakistan.

Pashto is Right to Left Language but it is different from Arabic. Pashto uses a modified version of Arabic Naskh script with extra characters added to indicate certain sounds that Pashto has and Arabic doesn’t. This is why the Pashto alphabet has a total of 44 letters, compared to 28 for standard Arabic.
