    Here are the few common differences.

    Urdu speaker Hindi speaker

    Hazar Hajar
    Mazdoor Majdoor
    Khod Kkhhud (its the same difference when Arab and English
    men pronounce "khalid") This is more common feature of
    Hindi speakers and you can easily figure out that one is
    Urdu speaker or Hindi speaker.
