Hello everyone,

I recently came across the word tohin which I understood to mean insult. However, I have not been able to find it anywhere in the Platts dictionary. Is there some transliteration or spelling issue? Could someone please point me to the correct spelling or entry?

I would also please like to know if both "tohin dena" and "tohin karna" work for the verb "to insult".

Thank you in advance for your time!

    The correct pronunciation is tauhiin. Entry in Urdu Lughat: تَوہِین. Entry in Platts:
    A توهين tauhīn [inf. n. ii of وهن 'to be weak'], s.f. Debilitating, enervating, relaxing; scoffing.
    tauhiin karnaa - to insult, etc.
