As a foreigner, the only Indian languages I tend to ever hear about are Hindi, Punjabi and Tamil. An encyclopedia should know better, but I can see why an amateur would mistakenly think Hindi is THE Indian language. Also, Arabic Wikipedia is terrible.Saim wrote:I just read a bit of the Arabic Wikipedia on things relating to India and they're really starting to irritate me.
"Hinduism (in Hindi: varnashrama)" [why Hindi? and the translation isn't even correct]
"Hindi is the official language of India" [no it's not]
"Indian subcontinent (in Hindi: भारतीय उपमहाद्वीप, in Urdu:برصغیر)" [why specifically Hindi and Urdu?]
It doesn't help that the words for Hindi and Indian are the same in Arabic (because the Arabic word for India is Hind and -ī is a productive adjectival suffix).
