In the event that you Google search the ugliest language in India, the query output shows: The appropriate response is Kannada, a language verbally expressed by around 40 million individuals in South India. It was first seen on debtconsolidationsquad.com. The site which presently shows 429 blunders, prior highlighted a rundown of 15 inquiries and answers identified with the dialects, remembering the least demanding language for India and most lovely language in India.
The Karnataka State Government said that it will make a lawful move against tech giant Google over the ugliest language in India discussion.
In a reaction to the previously mentioned debate, Google expressed, “Search isn’t always perfect. Sometimes, the way content is described on the Internet can yield surprising results to specific queries. We know this is not ideal, but we take swift corrective action when we are made aware of an issue and are continually working to improve our algorithms. Naturally, these are not reflective of the opinions of Google, and we apologize for the misunderstanding and hurting any sentiments.”
This has sparked a strong reaction from those who speak this south Indian language. People started sharing screenshots of the Google search and expressed their disapproval regarding it. Many have also expressed shock over this.
One of them said ‘A language spoken by over 56.9 million people worldwide, can’t be called the ugliest language in India’ and shared the screengrab of the search result. Another netizen has called Kannada the oldest language in the world and wrote, ‘How could you even call the oldest language as the ugliest language? We all Kannadigas love Kannada, and will not allow anybody to talk ill about our language. Please give respect to all the languages, be it Indian or any other.’
Following this, there’s an outrage on social media. People are demanding that Google must apologize and take strict action against it. The language is spoken by 60 million people and is one of the oldest languages in the world.
Thincnext, an IT firm in Bangalore, has started a petition on change.org to remove the search result from Google. So far, 2,271 people have signed it (at the time of writing this article).
President AAP Youth Wing, Karnataka, Mukund Gowda, shared a letter on Facebook which he wrote to Google India Vice President Sanjay Gupta. He wrote, “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 further wrote, “While there is no Ugly Language in India, Google should have been sensitive to even show any result for this search. 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 requested Sanjay Singh, Google India VP to immediately take down the search result and trace people who are playing with the sentiments of Kannadigas.
