How to Express Your Anger in Urdu without Urdu Curse Words

Thumbnail

It’s an established fact that anger, like all other human emotions, is something that everyone experiences. This emotion is well-known for its potential destructiveness, but properly channeling one’s anger can actually be beneficial. Communicating your anger, or other negative emotions, with others can help you feel better—it may also make the other party feel bad about how they hurt you, whether they meant to or not. In this way, anger has the potential to be constructive instead of destructive.

This is as true in Pakistani society as it is anywhere else in the world. Pakistani people tend to curse in Urdu if the situation warrants it. And of course, they have their own swear words in the Urdu language to express their angry feelings.

If you’re a foreigner or tourist in Pakistan, you must know how to express your anger in Urdu, or how to calm someone else down when needed. Learning some mild Urdu curse words and other angry lines in Urdu will be immensely helpful as you traverse Pakistan and navigate a number of situations in this unfamiliar land.

That’s why, in this article, we’ll be introducing you to the top 20 most common angry phrases in Urdu!

2. Remember!

Before proceeding, it’s important to be aware that Pakistan is an Islamic state. Therefore, any form of verbal—or non-verbal—profanity is extremely prohibited. So no matter how angry you are, you’ll have to use the language which is acceptable there. Hence, there are certain restrictions concerning how you can express your anger in Urdu culture.

3. Angry Commands in Urdu

In Pakistan, there are certain commands you can use to show someone that you’re angry. Below are some popular angry commands Urdu. Note that these are gender-neutral, so anyone can use them.

  • مجھے تنگ مت کرو / مجھے نہ ستاؤ۔
    mujhay tang mat karo / mujhay na satao.
    “Do not tease me.”

If you’re fed up with someone and want him to stop whatever he’s doing, you can say this to him. This phrase is commonly used to ask someone to restrict his activities.

  • اپنے کام سے کام رکھو۔
    apnay kam say kam rakho.
    “Mind your own business.”

When you can’t stand how someone is interfering with your personal matters, you can always use the expression above to keep him at arm’s length. Knowing when to use this phrase will make your job and life so much easier.

  • اپنی زبان سنبھالو۔
    apni zuban sambhalo.
    “Mind your language.”

If you hear a person using an aggressive tone and you want to ask him to keep quiet without being too harsh, use this phrase. It will suffice.

  • اپنی بکواس بند کرو / اپنی زبان بند کرو / اپنا منہ بند کرو۔
    apni bakwas band karo / apni zuban band karo / apna munh band karo.
    “Shut up.”

When the aggressor needs an aggressive reply, use any one of these three expressions. It’s the most aggressive way to tell someone to be quiet in Urdu. To be clear, most Urdu-speakers use the first version.

  • دفعہ ہو جاؤ / اپنی شکل گم کرو/ میری نظروں سے دور ہو جاؤ۔
    dafa ho jao / apni shakal gum karo / meri nazron say dur ho jao.
    “Get lost.”
  • مجھے تنہا چھوڑ دو۔
    mujhay tanha chor do.
    “Leave me alone.”

If a person becomes unbearable and you can’t tolerate his presence, use one of these two sentences to get rid of him. The first ones are more harsh, whereas the second phrase is more polite in tone.

  • بس کرو۔
    bas karo.
    “Stop it.”

When you want to tell someone to stop speaking, this is the best expression to use. An Urdu speaker will understand that he must stop talking.

4. Angry Warnings in Urdu

Negative Verbs

Sometimes, warning someone to stop or back off is the best way to avoid unnecessary confrontation. Below are a few angry warnings in Urdu that will help you appropriately express your anger or frustration.

  • مجھے غصہ مت دلاؤ۔
    mujhay ghussa mat dilao.
    “Do not make me angry.”

This warning lets the other person know that what he’s doing annoys you. Consequently, he’ll avoid repeating those words or actions.

  • اللہ سے ڈرو۔
    Allah say daro.
    “Be afraid of God.”

This is the most common warning used in Pakistani Urdu-speaking culture. Because of its religious undertones, this phrase is also used quite often in day-to-day life; it reminds others to fear God Almighty. If you find someone ethically, morally, or professionally corrupt, you can always say this to them.

  • میرے صبر کا امتحان مت لو۔
    meray sabar ka imtehan mat lo.
    “Do not try my patience.”

This sentence indicates that you’re about to lose your patience. It’s a great way to tell someone that you’re upset or angry in Urdu.

  • میں یہ برداشت نہیں کروں گا۔
    mei yeh bardasht nahi karun ga.
    “I will not tolerate it.”
  • میں یہ برداشت نہیں کروں گی۔
    mei yeh bardasht nahi karun gi.
    “I will not tolerate it.” (for female speakers)

This sentence warns that the action in question is intolerable for you, and you won’t compromise on it under any circumstances.

  • میرے ساتھ مت الجھو۔
    meray sath mat uljho.
    “Do not mess with me.”

This sentence is a warning that asks others to keep away from you. Otherwise, they may have to face the music.

  • میں تمھیں آخری دفعہ خبردار کر رہا ہوں۔
    mei tumhain aakhri dafa khabardar kar raha hun.
    “This is my last warning.”
  • میں تمھیں آخری دفعہ خبردار کر رہی ہوں۔
    mei tumhain aakhri dafa khabardar kar rahi hun.
    “This is my last warning.” (for female speakers)

You can use this sentence when someone isn’t changing his ways, despite you asking him to do so many times. This is a sort of final warning to the culprit.

  • مجھے دوبارہ کہنے کی ضرورت نہ پیش آئے۔
    mujhay dobara kehnay ki zarurat na pesh aaye.
    “Do not make me say it again.”

This angry phrase in Urdu is very similar to the one above; however, the tone of this sentence is softer than the previous one.

  • اس معاملے میں اپنی ٹانگ مت اڑاؤ۔
    iss mamlay mein apni tang mat arao.
    “Do not poke your nose in this matter.”

This sentence warns a person to keep away from a particular matter. It’s a polite warning that expresses your concern to someone.

5. Angry Blames in Urdu

    tum mujhay kyu ghoor rahay ho?
    “Why are you staring at me?” (addressing a man who is staring)
