Government of Karnataka officially announced that it will be legally filing complaint against Google for resulting Kannada as the Ugliest Language in India. Google’s answer to the “ugliest language in India” was: “What is the ugliest language in India? The answer is Kannada, a language spoken by around 40 million people in south India.”
The answer seems to have been picked up verbatim from a page on a website named debtconsolidationsquad.com, which also appears prominently among the search results for the phrase. It earlier featured a list of 15 questions and answers related to languages, which included “easiest language in India” and “most beautiful language in India”.

Google eventually excluded the webpage from its search results. By then, videos and thousands of social media posts were shared criticizing the search result. In a statement, Limbavali said he had directed the Kannada & Culture Secretary to consult the law department and issue a notice to Google.
Former chief minister and JD(S) leader HD Kumaraswamy asked why Google was insensitive towards languages. “Is it impossible for Google to regulate such hatred towards language in advance?” he asked. Nothing that the webpage from where the search result was sourced was deleted, Kumaraswamy asked what was the relief for the hurt suffered by Kannadigas. “The mistake of Google is not acceptable.”
