Details From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child That Make No Sense

Panju is Not an Indian Name

Ron Weasley

Warner Bros.

Padma Patil is an Indian woman, but the name of her son with Ron is Panju, which is just not an Indian name. It’s an island. This is the kind of thing that could have been cleared up with a quick Google search. Instead, authors Jack Thorne, John Tiffany and J.K. Rowling decided to leave it in, and be casually racist in the process.

This problem exists in the original Harry Potter stories as well, but given that this is the first new installment in almost a decade, you’d think they might have done some work to clean things up. Instead, they’re still making simple, easy mistakes.
