Ugliest Language In India: Know The Controversy Here

June 3, 2021

The ugliest language in India has been one of the most trending topics on the internet on June 3 and if one Google searches for it, the search result displays: The answer is Kannada!

Shocking, isn't it? And why won't one be shocked to learn that Kannada is the ugliest language in the world when it is spoken by around 40 million people in South India.

Kannada as the ugliest language in the world was first noticed on debtconsolidationsquad.com.

Even though the post has now been removed, however, earlier it featured a list of 15 questions and answers related to the languages, including easiest language in India and most beautiful language in India.

"Following this, there's an outrage on social media. People are demanding that Google must apologise and take strict action against it," reported jagranjosh.com.

It may be mentioned here that Kannada is one of the oldest languages in the world and spoken by around 60 million people worldwide.

Mukund Gowda, Karnataka AAP youth wing president, has also shared a letter on Facebook that he had written to Google India Vice President Sanjay Gupta.

"I take a serious exception to the search results shown by Google when someone searches for 'Ugliest Languages in India'. Unfortunately, 'Kannada' is the answer which comes up on the screen," he wrote in the letter.

"While there is no Ugly Language in India, Google should have been sensitive to even show any result for this search," the letter added.

"I believe this is the result gathered based on inputs and user experience that is logged as answered by some anti-Kannada users of Google," he further wrote.

Gowda further requested Sanjay Singh to immediately take down the search result and trace people who are playing with the sentiments of Kannadigas.
