With GMP are you meaning how to say "good morning" in Pakistani?
Or "Good Morning Pakistan" is the name of some TV show?

Many countries have more than one language or dialects.

Here is Pakistan:
National language: Urdu

Provincial languages:
Punjabi
Pashto
Sindhi
Balochi

Regional languages:
Saraiki
Hindko
Kashmiri

English is spoken too in Pakistan.
In today's world, some level of fluency in English, even broken English, is necessary. If I visit Malaysia, for example, and go shopping, if the workers in the shops do not know any English, then there will be communication problems. It would be hard for me to move around, and find things, or places in Malaysia, if none of them know some English. English seems easier for them to learn than, for me to learn their language.

English is slowly becoming a world language and you'll find people in all countries who can speak it. If they have any goals of leaving their country or working for large international companies, English is essential. I know a lady who teaches English as a 2nd language in China. Why? The Chinese need to know some English to function in today's world.

thanks very much Nick, but right now I was mainly concerned about the TV program.

nickg5Commented:
ok, I thought Good Morning was a greeting.........not a TV show.......

Aren't you in New York?

What station is that show on?

0
nickg5Commented:
If it is a TV show on, one of the major Pakistani TV stations, they are going to speak the language known by the most people, in their country.
Since Urdu is their national language, I expect that.

As far as Arabic, I was just informing you that Arabic was not the language.

I am sorry, but the person is not replying back, they could be out of town, etc.

nickg5Commented:
I did get an answer back but it is not "conclusive"

answer they gave:
I believe it is Urdu, with some English thrown in.
But someone from PK could tell you more accurately.
Definitely is either Urdu or Punjabi.
................................................................

with Urdu being the national language, I'd lean that way.

I hope this helps.

Hi,
I have received a reply from someone in Pakistan who watched the video.
Here is their answer:

Hi,
 This is a Goodmorning Pakistan show by Ary Digital TV in Pakistan. The language is Urdu, which is the National Language of Pakistan. The song they were singing was in Punjabi which, is a regional language of the province Punjab.

so it seems "the song" was Punjabi......
