Hindu is a religion. The word "Hindu" means "Those do not make violence, out of violence" in other terms non violence. Ancient rishi/muni concentrated on point to find truth. Hence, we can say bindu is truth where we can be concentrate there.

The word Hindu may refer to: An adherent of Hinduism and Inhabitant of Hindustan (Hindustan is a colloquial term for India; it means "the land of the Hindus"). Bindu is a Sanskrit term meaning "point" or "dot". The feminine case ending is Bindi which denotes a small ornamental, devotional and/or mystical dot that is cosmetically applied or affixed to the forehead in Hinduism. Bindu also refers to an aspect of the anatomy of the 'subtle body' composed of 'drops' and 'winds' : "the drops and winds are features of the human energy system and have varying degrees of subtlety."
