All the Indian states are divided on the basis of language the native people speak such that each state has a native language which is not well spoken in other states.

Is this kind of division followed only in India or are there other countries which are divided on the basis of language?

    Belgium is divided like this too. As is Canada. – Jeroen K Mar 7 '14 at 16:26
