The Kashmiri language is one of the 22 scheduled languages of India and is a part of the Sixth Schedule in the constitution of the Jammu and Kashmir. Kashmiri has thousands of loan words (mainly from Persian and Arabic) due to the arrival of Islam in the Valley, however, it remains basically an Indo-Aryan language close to Rigvedic Sanskrit. There is a minor difference between the Kashmiri spoken by a Hindu and a Muslim.
