Some Punjabi language newspapers on a stall

Punjabi-language newspapers are published and circulated in India, Pakistan and some western countries. Punjabi is a language of the Punjab region, which is divided between India and Pakistan. Pakistan has the most Punjabi speakers in the world, but the number of Punjabi-language newspapers published in Pakistan is low, in part due to the lack of government patronage and recognition of the Punjabi language.[1] India is the country where the most Punjabi-language newspapers are published.[citation needed]
