One attention: This is affecting all Urdu Wikis (e.g. Urdu Wiktionary isn't working too), but not affect RTL (Arabic and Hebrew Wikipedias are working well)

Going to your browser's "Developer Tools" will shown in the Network tab that this is a 301 redirect toخاص:اےپی_آئی__خصوصیات_کا_استعمال
And that page is a 301 again toخاص:اےپی_آئی_خصوصیات_کا_استعمال (one less underscore here).
And that page is a 404 error (file not found).

The Gerrit patch merged above changed the alias to خاص:اے_پی_آئی_خصوصیات_کا_استعمال

See the difference (additional underscore) between اے_پیand ےپی between the translation and the 404 page.

That might be related or unrelated to the problem here.

Due to T179156, 1.31.0-wmf.5 wasn't deployed to group 2 wikis (including urwiki) as scheduled. The problem does seem to be resolved in that version, as you can see by visiting

Feel free to reopen if the issue is not fixed once 1.31.0-wmf.5 or later is deployed to urwiki; you can check to see the version currently running.
