Will Nastaliq be forgotten?

I am excited for Hindi but I am also aware that Hindi was once part of a much broader language, Hindustani. At the basic level, Hindi and Urdu are the same, with both languages once being one. I appreciate the more complex vocabulary branching off but I'm wondering if it would be at all possible for Nastaliq script to be included in this course. I imagine not since it is Hindi but it is such a shame.

I wonder that too, especially since Arabic is arriving soon it could lead to similar language fonts to be introduced


There have also been instances of Hindi actually being written in Nastaliq although in all honesty at a basic level I don't see how anyone would be able to tell it is different from Urdu. I can live in hope it will also be there! :)
