I don’t understand why some people are creating a fuss about this foreign word. There should be a debate about why a word and a religion from elsewhere are being forcefully imposed on people here’. The video of this statement has gone viral on social media.
The meaning of the word ‘Hindu’ is given in Indian scriptures as ‘The one who destroys bad qualities is a Hindu’. Satish Jarkiholi’s statement proves that he has not studied the scriptures !
