Urdu literature (Template:Lang-ur, "Adabiat-e-Urdu") has a history that is inextricably tied to the development of the Urdu language. While it tends to be dominated by poetry, especially the verse forms of the ghazal and nazm, it has expanded into other styles of writing, including that of the short story, or afsana. Urdu literature is mostly popular in Pakistan, where Urdu is the official language. It is also popular in India and is widely understood in Afghanistan.
