    Recently I found out that the Pakistanis refuse to call our country as India .

    They say that the name India is based on the Indus river which runs in Pakistan . Hence they say that only the undivided India could be called India .

    They call this country Bharat and us as Bharatis .

    Here's a typical paki diatribe against India --

    copy/paste--

    I had no desire to inflame Indians by calling them bhartis. Bharat is an official name of your country, In Urdu we refer to India as Bharat. I have serious reservation over Bharat naming itself India. The name India was shared between both Pakistan and Bharat. Originally it was applied only to Indus valley which Alexander invaded but later it was applied to whole south Asia. When Pakistan gained its independence from Britons it might have been logical for the new state in the Indus valley to take the name India or even Industan as the valley was called by English sailors but our founder rejected this name given by invaders. We have our history to be proud of and do not need to take the name/identity from invaders. Since you Indians had no history Nehru was right to steal the name India from Indus valley Pakistanis to claim as theirs. You people have nothing to be proud of, it is Pakistanis who should be that Indian ocean is named after their river Indus. You people are known throughout the world due to the achievements of Pakistani ancestors. Jinnah was furious when Bharat chose the name India and felt bharat had hijacked Pakistan’s millennia of civilization.

    Pakistani press in its early years used to call India "Bharat" and referred to Indians as "Bharatis.", obviously Pakistani civilian leadership of that time were against this bharati fraud. Even president Eisenhower once referred to Nehru as the "Prime Minister of 'Bharat. It was only after military coup when the loser general Ayub Khan came to power that attitude of the Pakistani press changed bharat became India. Some self defeatist Pakistanis didn’t care about losing their identity to Bhartis but many did care. Pakistan is a child of Indus and I always try my best to not call Bharat as India, since this our heritage and you people have no history this is why you are trying to rob us of our history. I am not the only person who calls Indian bharti there are thousands out there. Why not call yourself bhartis what wrong with this name Bharata was a legendary Hindu hero. You people are obviously suffering from identity crises.

    Don't know Don't care. The whole world calls us India. If one country among two hundred decides to call us something different then it is their prerogative. All official documents list us as India and that's how it stays.

    If they can't live with the fact then there is nothing anybody can do about it. The Pakistanis lead a life in a bubble, let them continue to do so. After all they cannot control their own country.

    If they can't stand us being called India, it's them and not us who suffer an identity crisis. Let them start by calling themselves "West India" on the basis of the Indus flowing through their country.

    Whats wrong in that, one of our official names are Bharat. Imagine if we didnt have it, and only india? We will be Harry Potter's Voldermot type, the country who cannot be named, should we really care about some inbred whose ancestors got raped into submission?

    Add to that, it's their country that's more contradictory to its name than ours is.

    The tributaries of Indus originate here. There's some scope for calling India what it is.

    Pakistan stands for "land of the pure". There's nothing pure in Pakistan except BS.

    What a sad Paki rant. Identity crisis? It is their nation which suffers from identity crisis - the don't know whether to call themselves descendants of Arabs, or Mongols or Turks, or whether they should just call themselves Indians. At times some bright spark comes up with a statement that they should call themselves just "Pakistanis". Sometimes they call themselves descendants of "Indus Valley people". And this idiot says that we have identity crisis? Hah.

    Anyway, these Pakis led by Djinnah were all too gung-ho about Islam, Islam and more Islam - after all they wanted their country to be a safe haven for Muslims of the subcontinent. So the Islamic name suits them perfectly fine. They had no interest (and still do not have) in concepts such as secularism. India could have named itself Hindustan or Bharat, but the guiding principle of India has always been that Muslims, Hindus, Christians can live together without problems. India is India, while the failed state of Pakistan is Pakistan - that is how it is.

    Don't be surprised if these brain dead species called Pakis start claiming one day that Columbus set sail to discover Pakistan and not India. The native "red Indians" of the American continent should have been called "red Pakistanis". Vasco Da Gama set out to trade with Pakistan and not with India.

    Hinduism or some aspects of it, have to be appreciated by the Government of India , as it is the history of this land. Secularism doesnt mean you forget your history and traditions. Bharat has nothing to do with Hinduism rather like the Mauryan Empire, it gives a physical aspect to the idea of India.

    Actually it is fun to see them fluttering like half dead birds falling from the sky. The only place they can make such statements and get away with it, is on Pak forums. I can imagine their anguish when they know that they will be ridiculed and mocked and laughed at throughout the rest of the civilized world for making such statements.

    How it can be realistic when thread title is misleading ? When some foolish Pakistani people say such thing about "INDIA" then same type of answer will also come. :laugh::laugh:
