Satish Jarkiholi, working president of the Karnataka Congress, sparked outrage when he claimed that the word “Hindu” is Persian and has a “very dirty” meaning. Speaking at an event organized by “Manav Bandhutva Vedike” on Sunday (November 6, 2022), Yamakanmardi MLA also stated that “a word and a religion from elsewhere is being forcefully imposed on people here,” and demanded that a proper debate be held on the subject.

 

“They discuss Hindu Dharm… What is the origin of the Hindu term? Is it really ours? It is Persian in origin. Persian is a language spoken in Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan. What is Bharat’s connection to it? So, how did the Hindu come to be yours? There should be a discussion about this “Jarkiholi explained.

 

The statement was made by the working president of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee at an event in the Belagavi district. A video of the remarks has gone viral on social media.

By Monday, video clips of his speech had gone viral on social media, and some people had even criticised his party for his remarks.

The Congress quickly distanced itself from his remarks and condemned them. “Hinduism is a way of life as well as a cultural reality.” Our country was built by Congress to respect all religions, beliefs, and faiths. This is India’s essence. The statement attributed to Mr. Jarkiholi is deeply regrettable and should be rejected. “We categorically condemn it,” Mr. Surjewala said.
