The English word “thug” has its origins in the Hindu word ṭhagī, or the thuggee, who were a group of professional assassins in India. Beginning sometime before the 13th century, the group passed the trade from father to son throughout at least 700 years. The Thuggee grew to such ability that historians estimate they murdered one million people between 1740 and 1840.
