Interesting quiz and nice-looking map! I'm absolutely flabbergasted that there's no Kashmiri though. At first I assumed it was because all the languages you have in Pakistani Kashmir were dialects/closely related to standard Kashmiri, but upon further research they seem to be pretty distinct from Kashmiri (although I've only done this "research" in the past 5 minutes so I could be wrong). Do you have an explanation for this?

Thanks! I'm not sure about Kashmiri to be honest, I was confused about it too. It just wasn't depicted on the map I used. I think it's mostly because the number of Kashmiri speakers in Pakistan is far too insignificant compared to that of Pahari-Pothwari

Fun fact: If all of Kashmir goes to India, the only thing Pakistan will lose is a bucket.
