What we Indians are doing wrong on WhatsApp?

The following false message about India and origin of its name.
The message reads like:

America is called America in English
China is called China in English
Japan is called Japan in English
Brazil is called Brazil in English
Australia is called Australia in English
Even, Pakistan is called Pakistan in English
Then why is Bharath (Name of India in Hindi Language) called India in English?

Because, according to Oxford dictionary,
I - Independent
N- Nation
D- Declared
I - In
A- August
SHARE THIS MESSAGE PROUDLY AMONG OUR INDIANS. THIS MESSAGE SHOULD REACH EVERY INDIAN.
FEELING PROUD FOR BEING AN INDIAN.

*Message ends*

The actual reason why India is called so is :-
The name India is derived from Indus, which originates from the Old Persian word Hindus. The latter term stems from the Sanskrit word Sindhu, which was the historical local appellation for the Indus River. The ancient Greeks referred to the Indians as Indoi, which translates as "the people of the Indus".
