      Salman Rushdie said in one of his novels referring to Urdu and Pakistanis
      "People who use the language that has the same word for tomorrow as for yesterday, how are they supposed to have a grip on time "

      please take time out and think about it...
      any befitting reply would be appreciated

      Isn't the same true for hindi?

      And we are supposed to get a grip on time by correlating the word "kal" with the tense of the verb.
      Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

      we shouldn't be bothered about statments/comments from such a malicious person. as already answered, the TENSE of the sentence in which word "kal" is used describes if it is for "yesterday" or "tomorrow". i guess Salman Rushdie should learn the basics of a language, needs some "akal".
      we can say about English:
      why should English people be respected if they call/refer to everyone as "you" while in conversation, Urdu has words "tum" and "aap".

      these comments from Salman Rushdie are nothing but expression of hatred/arrogance

      Salman Rushdie is a rabid nutcase. He does anything for attention.

      If you want to get a good feel of his extreme rabid hatred for Islam and Pakistan, read his book "Shame".

      "Shame" is set in Pakistan of the 80's.
      It contains the statement mentioned about the word "kal" , being the same for tommorrow and yesterday.

      Beware: There are some exteremely blasphemous things in that book.

      After hearing that about Rushdie, I am terribly disappointed. Cha hay koi kitna aklmund bunay, kabhi na kabhi asliyat dika-ee de jati hai.
