‘Kannada Ugliest Language’: Karnataka Ready To File Case Against Google

‘Kannada Ugliest Language’: Karnataka Ready To File Case Against Google

If you search Google in India for the ugliest language, then the result will be shown: the answer is Kannada, a language spoken in South India by about 40 million citizens. It first appeared on debtconsolidationsquad.com. The Website with 429 errors included a list of 15 language-related questions and answers, including the simplest language in India and the finest in India.

After then, there’s a social media outrage. People demand that Google apologise and take strong measures. 60 million people speak the language and are one of the oldest languages in the world.

Thincnext, an IT company based in Bangalore, has started a petition on change.org to remove the search result from Google. So far, 2,831 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.


President of Kannada Development Authority TS Nagabharana was quoted by TV9Kannada as saying, “We have got into the legal battle over this issue. Legal notice sent to Google condemning Kannada. The humiliation of one another in terms of ground, water, language and culture cannot be tolerated. Clearly, this is some kind of systematic conspiracy. Kannadigas, the moods of the Kannada language, are ambushed to create such an opportunity. It is not our job to resist. Instead, these types of events must be kept in check.
