That Indian English

At least five ministers from Karnataka have announced plans to tour the state to gather opinion about separate religion status from community leaders and mutt pontiffs.

Il Papa in Rome probably would think that any plural would have to include some dodgy breeds, yes.

Turns out that a mutt is a religious community, akin to a monastery, a pontiff the leader of one such. That is, we’re talking about abbots here.
