Lodhi vs Lodi[edit]

Lodhi is the proper spelling. Siddiqui 16:55, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Actually, the correct spelling is Lodi. Lodi is a Pashtun tribe and in Pashto it is written as لودي not لودهي - without a ه/h. پښتانه stands for Pashtuns. If you google both "لودهي پښتانه" (Lodhi Pashtuns) and "لودي پښتانه" (Lodi Pashtuns) in Pashto, the result will be
I also have two books written on Pashtun tribes, "Pashtanay Qabeelay" and "Hayat e Afghani" and they both spell it as "Lodi". Therefore, the word Lodhi of this article (and other articles related to Lodi/Lodhi) should be changed to Lodi, however we should include "Lodhi" in the brackets (not in the title) because a lot of poeple spell it as "Lodhi" eventhough it is incorrect. (Ketabtoon (talk) 04:13, 13 August 2009 (UTC))
Britanica[2], New World Encyclopedia[3], MSN [4] and several other major sites/books/encyclopedias use "Lodi" instead of "Lodhi". (Ketabtoon (talk) 04:23, 13 August 2009 (UTC))
