Hippophobia - CID TV Serial on Sony TV - Defined Wrong

I was on Sony Channel Today viewing a Serial Called CID, it was a retelecast of the serial which was shown many times on the same channel, A super hit serail CID represented Hippophobia with wrong defination, A lady doctor says to CID team that the person they assume to be the killer is sufferring from Hippophobia which means by the doctor is it is a desease which cause fear of guns or pistols, banduk, or ghoda in hindi.

They are giving wrong information on such a big hit serails which are seen by many educated persons like doctors, and mostly the students, by which students can gain a wrong knowledge of medical terms.

I request the CID Serial makers to use correctly the medical terms which are very important one mistake can cause many problems to the learners.

The Real meaning of Hippophobia is not fear of guns but it is fear of horses, may be they got this wrong message or they thought that ghoda means guns, ghoda is mostly used in mumbai as guns, but ghoda really means horse.

Let us see what actually Hippophobia means:

Hippophobia: An abnormal and persistent fear of horses. Sufferers of this fear experience undue anxiety even when a horse is known to be gentle and well trained. They usually avoid horses entirely rather than risk being kicked, bitten or thrown. They may also fear other hoofed animals such as ponies, donkeys and mules.

This type of phobia may be triggered by a fall from a horse (which is probably why it is said that, after a fall from a horse, one should get right back on).

"Hippophobia" is derived from the Greek "hippos" (horse) and "phobos" fear. "Hippos" has given us the English word "hippodrome," the oval-shaped racecourses in ancient Greece and Rome where horse and chariot races took place. "Hippodrome" can also refer to any building or arena of the present or past designed for circuses, games and other entertainments.

An alternate name for fear of horses is "equinophobia," a hybrid word (one that is composed of roots from different languages). It is derived from the Latin "equus" (horse) and Greek "phobos" (fear). "Equus" also gives us the English words "equoid" and "equine" (resembling a horse). Talipes equinovarus is the common form of clubfoot in which the heel is elevated (like a horse's) and turned inward.

Hippophobia means fear of horse not the bombay or mumbai ghoda..... (gun).....
