See Alt-right glossary for our overall inspiration

Much like the alt-right in North America and Europe, the far-right in India has its own lexicon of in-group memes and jargon. In Indian English, some of these are derived from like-minded movements in the larger Anglosphere and given an Indian twist, some are based on Hindi or other regional languages rendered into Latin script and possibly mixed with English or "leet-speak", basically forming a rich cultural tapestry of ways to be cruel.

This list is inspired by our popular Alt-right glossary, and is made even more necessary by the fact that the larger social media world for English speakers is largely composed of people who simply don't get the culture of the Indian Right, giving them a lot of leeway to mob Reddit, Discord, YouTube comment sections and the like with very aggressive input that often violates the platform's Terms of Service, but gets a pass because a tech worker in California has no idea what a "k2a" is. So this list exists to compile these terms to raise awareness of the dangerously violent strains of bigotry in the corners of the Indian English social media world that might otherwise be overlooked.

Please note this list focuses on terms used in Indian English, with some flex for terms/phrases that are in Hindi or regional languages but would be commonly dropped into discussions otherwise in English and commonly recognized by participants.

Dogwhistles[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Dogwhistle
Typical Hindu nationalist social media.

🚩[edit]

The triangular red flag emoji (🚩) refers to the flag of #Hindu Rashtra, simply known as Bhagwa DhwajWikipedia (lit. Saffron Flag). The RSS has infamously been against the usage of the Indian national flag (🇮🇳) saying "it will never be respected and owned by Hindus."[1]

🏹[edit]

The bow-and-arrow emoji (🏹) refers to the iconic bow and arrow (BrahmastraWikipedia) of Rama,Wikipedia a Hindu god.

Akhand Bharat[edit]

Akhand Bharat (lit. United India) is an irredentist mythical geographical extension of the Indian territories to accompany most of South Asian dominions, akin to the Nazi concept of Lebensraum.

A conceptualization of Akhand Bharat, encompassing the 'base-set' of countries; Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Myanmar
What constitutes Akhand Bharat varies wildly depending on which type of Viraat Hindu that one is talking to and how detached from reality they are.

Bvll[edit]

Bvll is faux-Latinization of 'bull', roughly equivalent to the manosphere term, 'chad'. It is also used within the Western alt-right.[2]

Cauliflower farmer[edit]

The term cauliflower farmer refers to the 1989 Bhagalpur violence,Wikipedia which killed more than a thousand people comprised of mostly Muslims, and displaced 50,000 more, during which a Hindu police officer killed more than a hundred Muslims in the Logain massacre and buried them in the cauliflower plantation nearby to hide the evidence.[3]

Ghar Wapsi or Suddhi[edit]

Ghar Wapsi (lit. Homecoming) is the name under which various modern Hindutva organisations orchestrate their religious conversions to Hinduism.[4] It is part of the larger Suddhi (lit. Purification) movement.[5] They prefer this term over conversion because of the pseudohistorical myth that in the past, Hindu Rashtra extended all over the globe and everyone was a Hindu. Hence, a religious conversion outside Hinduism is seen as betrayal of one’s culture, but a foreigner adopting Hindu culture is seen as “purification” rather than conversion as they are returning to the “truer” religion.

Hindu Rashtra[edit]

The Hindu Rashtra (lit. Hindu Nation) is the main goal for Hindutva; a Hindu supremacist ethnostate.

Kattar Hindu and Viraat Hindu[edit]

Kattar Hindu and viraat Hindu refer to Hindus who are "proud of their culture;" supremacists. Similar to saying "It's OK To Be Hindu."[6] Kattar means 'hardcore' in Hindi and Viraat means 'huge' in Gujarati.

Trads[edit]

Trads are what Hindu traditionalists; they are called unapologetic for subscribing to the old beliefs of Hinduism, such as casteism and sati.

Religious slurs[edit]

Abdul[edit]

Abdul is a common Arabic name in the Muslim community, but used as a slur.[7]

Abdul is not used as a standalone name, but rather with another word such as Abdurrahman (Abd-ul Rahman, "slave of the merciful [God]").

Alia Malia Jamia[edit]

Alia Malia Jamia is a catchphrase referring to Muslims. The phrase itself has no real meaning besides the fact that the three names sound a bit Muslim and have assonance. It was first used by Narendra Modi and then popularised by Amit Shah.[8]

Bakri premi[edit]

Bakri premi (बकरी प्रेमी) in Hindi translates to "goat lover".[7][9] It refers to RationalWiki’s fascination with goats Muslims because of Eid (sometimes called Bakri Eid[10]), the Muslim festival of sacrifice, in which a domestic animal is required to be sacrificed, often a sheep or a goat.

Bulla[edit]

Bulla is the text form of 🅱️ulla (using the 'B emoji'). It is used to avoid censorship of pejorative use of 'mulla' (or mullah, a Muslim clerical title). It is a slur for Muslims generally.[7][11]

Katua/katwa/k2a[edit]

Katua, katwa (katua + fatwa), and k2a are used as crude slurs for Muslim males.[12][13][14] derived from kat (काट) which is a cognate for 'cut', referring to male Muslims being circumcised. It is on the level of vulgarity as the n-word. K2A is an abbreviation of katwa.[7]

The word also refers to the name of a Hindu town (KathuaWikipedia) in a mostly Muslim state (Jammu and Kashmir). Kathua was where the Kathua rape caseWikipedia took place, where an eight-year-old girl was drugged, brutally gang raped several times over the course of a week, and strangled to death by a local Hindu priest, his son, his nephew, and four Hindu police officers including a constable. Protests in support of the accused were later attended by two prominent ministers of the ruling right-wing BJP.[15]

Khalistani[edit]

Flag of Khalistan.

Khalistan is a slur against Sikhs (in India or elsewhere). "Khalistan"Wikipedia is a proposed Sikh separatist homeland comprising the general Punjab regions of both India and Pakistan, and was a serious issue in the 1980s that led to major violence. So it is a real issue, less so today than in past years, but used a blanket term for Sikhs, its implication is that Sikhs aren't "real" members of the society that they live in, but are scheming "people without a nation" pressing their own interests (sound familiar?).

Mleccha[edit]

MlecchaWikipedia refers to any non-Hindu. Mleccha is a Sanskrit term for “foreign” people who did not know the Vedic tongue.

Moslim[edit]

Moslim means Muslim.[16] 'Moslim' is a non-pejorative secondary spelling of Muslim, dating back to the 1600s,[17] that has come into disuse in standard English.

Mulla/Kathmulla[edit]

Mulla is a generic slur of Muslims. It refers to 'mullahs' who are learned theologists in Islam. Not a bad word in itself, but has turned offensive by use over time. The 'mulla' spelling of the word actually follows the Urdu transliteration mullā, and is an archaic spelling in English.[18]

The slur has been used by famous BJP members like Yogi Adityanath and Sambit Patra.[19]

Ola hu Uber[edit]

Ola CabsWikipedia and UberWikipedia are popular cab services in India. The sentence "Ola hu Uber." refers to Allāhu ʾakbarWikipedia meaning “Allah is the greatest.”[7][20]

Paki[edit]

Pasmandu[edit]

Pasmandu is a derogatory term for lower caste Muslims. Pasmanda means “those left behind” in Persian, and is not derogatory,[23] and Passmandu is a portmanteau of Pasmanda and the Bengali gandu (গান্ডু, asshole).[24][25] The word is generally used by Hindu supremacists as an insult to Muslims. The alt-right is now using it to for all liberals and leftists.

Porkistan/Porkis[edit]

Porkistan is a portmanteau of Pakistan and pork, and is used to disparage Muslims, who do not eat pork because it is considered haram (forbidden in Islamic law).[26][27]

Ricebag[edit]

Ricebag is a slur against Indian Christians, implying that they converted to get free rice handouts from missionaries.Wikipedia In earlier times, lower caste Hindus converted to Christianity to escape the caste discrimination (It didn't work, they brought the caste system along). Right wingers being right wingers who view anyone that isn't a Hindu with contempt use the term 'ricebag' to imply that they converted for freebies (There were freebies, but the main driving force for the conversion was the escape from caste discrimination).[28]

What the people who use this word don't realize by using the word is the implication that their religion is only worth a bag of rice, then again, we are talking about people who believe in religious superiority. No surprise.[29]

Xztians[edit]

Xztians refers to Christians.[7] Probably derived from the practice of using the Greek letter chi (Χx) or the visually similar X as a stand-in for the word Christ (as in Xmas).

Dissenting voices[edit]

Andolan jeevi[edit]

Andolan jeevi is a term used to accuse minorities and the underprivileged who protest the laws passed by the government of being paid by the opposition to "defame India."[30] The word was first coined by Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi[31] to dismiss the concerns of one of the world’s largest protests.Wikipedia[32][33] The word "andolan" means "agitation"[34] and "jeevi" means "one who lives"[35] so the full phrase means "people who live off of protests."

Anti-national[edit]

The term anti-nationalWikipedia is a label slapped onto basically anyone who criticises the current government. Criticising the current government is not the same as literally being against the existence of India, which is something most Indian conservatives fail to understand.

Bhangi[edit]

Bhangi is a casteist slur for people belonging to the castes of Valmiki caste.[40][41] Valmiki is a large cluster of castes, and local groups from the Indian subcontinent. The Valmikis can be classified as a caste or Sampradaya.Wikipedia In terms of being classified as Sampradaya, the Valmikis trace their tradition to the Hindu sage Valmiki who is traditionally ascribed as the writer of the epic Ramayana. Valmikis are traditionally supposed to be cleaners/sweepers according to the caste system. They are supposed to clean the toilets of upper-caste Hindus and do all the filthy work that they would require to get done.[42]

Bheemta[edit]

Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar

Bheemta is a slur against DalitsWikipedia and Ambedkarites.[43] It refers to B. R. Ambedkar, a rationalist-humanist atheist who fought for Dalit rights after Indian independence and had a large part in forming the Indian constitution.[44]

Chamar[edit]

Chamar is similar to Bhangi, another casteist slur for people belonging to the chamarWikipedia caste, who were mostly leatherworkers. Under the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989,Wikipedia its usage to refer to a person is punishable by law.[45] That hasn't stopped its use, however.[46][47]

Chrislamocommie[edit]

Deletes[edit]

Similar to #Tukde Tukde Gang, Khan Market Gang is a catchphrase against the "liberal elite."[50] Refers to Khan Market,Wikipedia one of the most expensive piece of real estate in India[51] which hosts trendy boutiques, eateries and shopping centres.

The phrase was coined by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley,Wikipedia referring to political brokers who spent time at the market during parliament lunch breaks.[52] It was then further popularised by Narendra Modi who used it to refer to the BJP's opposition.[53][54]

Khujliwal[edit]

Arvind Kejriwal

Lutyen's media[edit]

The term Lutyen's media is used to accuse dissenting media houses and journalists (especially the English, DelhiWikipedia-centric ones) of being paid by “the elite” (“foreign powers” and opposition parties, especially the Indian National CongressWikipedia) to "destroy India".[57][58][59] Refers to Edwin LutyensWikipedia who was responsible for much of the architectural design and building during the period of the British Raj.

It is described as:

highly homogenized, urban, closeted, dilli/punjabi, bipolarly broken conservative/liberal, overly articulate, English, overly defensive, highly left-liberal, overly label-loving, well-meaning but obtuse…[60]

Macaulay's children[edit]

The term Macaulay's children is used to accuse opponents of being British bootlickers who value 'western science' over the teachings in Vedic scriptures.[61] Refers to Thomas Babington Macaulay,Wikipedia who introduced the Western education system into India.[62][63]

Pajeet[edit]

Pajeet is a slur aimed at various groups depending on context (South Asians in general).[67] Paaji (elder brother in Punjabi) + generic Punjabi name (Sanjeet, Manjeet etc). The name Pajeet does not exist in South Asia, but similar-sounding names do exist, most notably in the Punjab region.[68]

The slur originated from a meme, "Pajeet, my son", circulated on 4chan in late 2014 and early 2015, mocking India for its open-defecation problem, with public reaction to the Poo2LooWikipedia campaign.[69] The term is also used in the broader alt-right.

Raita/Rayta[edit]

Raita or Rayta is a conservative Hindu who doesn’t follow Hindutva,[15] referring to a common South Asian dish made with yogurt. Considered a centrist in Indian politics because of the stunted Overton window in India. Usage of this term is not exclusive to Hindutva-proponents.

Taliliberals[edit]

Taliliberals is a slur used against liberals. It is a portmanteau of the words Liberal and the terrorist group Taliban to accuse them of being Islamists.[75]

Tukde Tukde Gang[edit]

Similar to #Khan Market Gang, Tukde Tukde GangWikipedia is a catchphrase used against critics of the BJP regime to accuse them of wanting to break India into pieces (direct opposite of Akhand BharatWikipedia).[76] The word "tukde" means "small fragments"[77] in Hindi and the full phrase can translate to "gang that wants to break the nation."[78]

The credit for the coinage of the phrase was claimed by the infamous[79] news anchor of Zee TV, Sudhir Chaudhary.Wikipedia[80] It gained popularity after the mostly left-leaning students of Jawaharlal Nehru UniversityWikipedia (JNU) were protesting using "anti-national" slogans, where one student is allegedly heard saying "Bharat Tere Tukde Honge" (India, you will be fractured into pieces). The allegations were later proved to be false by the police.[81]

But the damage from the propaganda had been done; JNU’s reputation was tarnished by Godi mediaWikipedia pundits covering the JNU sedition rowWikipedia[82] and despite it being disproved,[83] the conspiracy that Tudke Tudke Gang ever existed still continues today.[84]

Urban Naxal[edit]

Urban Naxal is an abusive term used against anyone who criticizes the government. The word 'naxal' derives from the name of the village Naxalbari in West Bengal, where the Naxalbari uprisingWikipedia revolt took place in 1967.

The first known use of the word was in 2014 when Bharatiya Janata Party leader Arun Jaitley called the center to center-left political party Aam Aadmi PartyWikipedia "Urban Naxalism".[85]

The term got a resurgence when the Maharashtra Government arrested five people, namely Sudha Bharadwaj,Wikipedia Arun Ferreria,Wikipedia Vernon Gonsalves,Wikipedia Gautam NavlakhaWikipedia and Varavara RaoWikipedia for their alleged involvement in the 2018 Bhima Koregaon violence.Wikipedia It currently owes its usage to Vivek Agnihotri,Wikipedia a BJP and Central Board of Film CertificationWikipedia member who defined the term "Urban Naxal" in his book of the same name as:

urban Naxal as an intellectual, influencer or activist who is an invisible enemy of India[86][87]

…which makes it easy for right wingers to label anyone who opposes their view as an "Urban Naxal". In reality, the book doesn't have much to do with the use of them term other than a solid reference. BJP leaders were constantly using the term right after the Bhima Koregaon arrests to discredit dissident voices.

This term has many different varieties, depending on who the right-wing wants to hate and blame today:[88]

  • Suburban Naxal, for people in Suburban areas.
  • Bourbon Naxal, for people who use western products instead of Indian ones. Refers to Bourbon whiskey.Wikipedia
  • Turban Naxal, alternate term for #Khalistanis.
  • Carbon Naxal, for environmentalists.
