The religion in India, which is not exclusive… has no ‘organisation’… and does not have ‘one’ book to follow… and which accepts all saints, whether Hindu or Muslim. The word was coined originally by Alexander the Great, who crossed the river Sindhu to come to India… but unable to properly pronounce the word, it became ‘Indhu’… and thus Hindu, to mean the name of the religion that Indians followed. From Hindu, we get Hindustan, the name for India, according to English usage… but which became India after Independence (MME); Hindu books include the Gita, and the Vedas (1992-0621)
