India to be officially change its name to Bharat


Bharat is the name on the banner in front of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during the first session of the G20 summit that opened in New Delhi.

According to the Indian Constitution, English and Hindi are the official languages ​​of the country, with the country called “India” in English and “Bharat” in Hindi.

India’s President Draupadi Murmu had used the term “President of Bharat” instead of “President of India” for the first time in invitations written in English to attend the G20 summit dinner.

While Indian media said, citing sources, that the Indian government may propose to officially change the English name of the country to “Bharat” and present this issue to a special session of Parliament, which will be held from September 18 to 22.

It’s worth noting that these measures by the Indian authorities sparked widespread criticism from some opposition political parties.

Years ago, the authorities tried to change the country’s name to “Bharat,” because the name dates back to the British colonial era, but the Supreme Court rejected that.

It was reported that the Indian government, has officially sent a letter to the United Nation, calling to recognize the name of India to be “Bharat”.
