A derogatory name for the inhabitants of Bharat Bhumi.It's original Persian meaning is "slave" "low life" "thief" "black (skinned)".Muslim invaders called the "infidel" Indians Hindu's as an insult, but today it is a national identity which people are proud of.WHY?
When will "Hindu's" stop calling themselves this derogatory name?
“Moreover, it is correct that this name Hindu
has been given to the original Aryan race of the region by Muslim invaders to humiliate them. In Persian, says our author, the word means slave, and according to Islam, all those who did not embrace Islam were termed as slaves.” (Maharishi Shri Dayanand Saraswati Aur Unka Kaam, edited by Lala Lajpat Rai, published in Lahore, 1898, in the Introduction)
