Buddha was every inch a Hindu - Koenraad Elst
According to Professor Flood, there were no "Hindus" in the historical
Buddha's time. /"The actual term Hindu first occurs as a Persian
geographical term for the people who lived beyond the river Indus."/ The
term Hindu then was a geographical term and did not refer to a religion.
