Am a bit confused here,Is the word "Ikula" for Indians derogatory?

I guess even White guys when you say Ikhiwa will have to complain please help.
Is the word "Ikula" for Indians derogatory?

I have always known Indians as amaKula, there is not other name that I knew. Naran was always called iKhula.

Do you mean to say uMajaivana uma wayesithi usekhonjwe likula he was saying it in a racist manner?

According to Ndebele people from Zimbabwe iKula likula, maybe it has a different meaning in SA.

Of course it is derogatory. It comes from "coolie". There is an alternative and WIDELY used word "amandiya".

I don't see anything derogatory about that "ikula" in my opinion is an acceptable Xhosa word for an Indian person
