>"Hindustan" is an arabic word.

Wrong. No it is not an Arabic word and if your rasul re-incarnates (oh wrong religion) and comes back to earth he would have no clue what is Hindustan. Your Allah himself who is no more than an Arab had no clue anything about the great religions of India right our dear magadh?

And here is your lesson for today: The word India in Arabic is al-Hind and (and more likely than not it is a loan word from Old Persian) and the people of India means al-hunuud and Hindus in Arabic means al-hindusiyyun and not even close

The word Hindu is from old persian and it comes from Vedic Sanskrit Sindu and you need to get your money back from your glorious madrassa
