Has Google discontinued Adsense on Hindi sites?

Google PSAHas Google discontinued showing Adsense Ads on pages written in languages other than English? My Hindi blog has been showing PSAs since last day and some of the Ad blocks are showing empty. Few other Hindi bloggers also noted the issue. Strangely, the advertisements still show up fine on a few pages, for example this page on my other site Hindi blogs directory. Hindi has not been in the list of official languages for Adsense however they has started showing Ad links in Hindi and Gujarati, which has been a great motivator for the rise of Indian language content on the net, especially people blogging in Indian languages. Lately even the Ads by Google disclaimer text was being shown in Hindi.

Have Hindi and other non-English pages being excluded from Adsense or are these signs of any new service or improvement in the service by Google? If it’s the former I would be really sad.

Update: Could this be the reason?
