Hindi/Hindu: a clarification



There is widespread confusion between Hindi and Hindu.

Hindi is the national language of India spoken by many
(but not all) Indians.
A hindu is a person following Hinduism, the religion.
So many hindus would speak hindi, as would many
non-hindus.
All Indians are not hindus.

Carla needs hindi type, not hindu type.
