Discourse analysis is the most recent technique to understand and examine the course of history and contemporary aspects of a certain society. Urdu language has through many ages including colonial era before reaching the present stage in Pakistan. It is unanimously understood that Aligarh movement effected Urdu more than any other factor in the history of India. This essay gives a brief analysis of the discourses that were developed during this particular movement whether consciously or unconsciously. The effects of these discourses on Urdu in Pakistan are of great importance as we see that elite class in Pakistan still believes that Urdu has to follow the path that has been established by English to survive in the modern world. These elites are the people who are decision makers and while setting any policy regarding language or medium of education for young generations, just follow the path of the British officers who served in India during Colonial age. This essay is basically an effort to look into the matter from a different perspective.
